I like smaller groups no bigger than 100 students (K-3) so there’s more personal interaction with the kids. I prefer half-day visits of 2 presentations plus a book signing. I can also add a special Author Roundtable with a small group of select students (grades 3-6) who are interested in writing. If I travel out of state, I ideally like to do 2 consecutive days of visits with 2 different schools. That way schools can share travel costs. Airfare rates are determined from flights available out of Denver International Airport.
I will gladly sign books after my presentations, in fact I encourage schools to include a book signing with my visit so students have the opportunity to take home an author “souvenir.” It makes for a more memorable experience.
Honorarium is $1,500 plus travel expenses.
To set up an out-of-state school visit, please contact my booking agent, Michele Kophs of Provato Marketing, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In response to schools wanting an author visit for all of K-6, Teresa Funke and I are teaming up so that all of your students have the opportunity to meet an author. Teresa and I will travel together to your school and give presentations catered to the grade levels appropriate for our books (I present to K-3, Teresa presents to 4-6 and can go up to grade 8). For more information, please click to this page on Teresa’s site.
I also love doing online visits and offer 20-minute sessions to individual classrooms in the USA if:
1) Your students have read my books and
2) Your school or classroom places a minimum order of 25 books. (I can design an order form and arrange to have signed books mailed to your school if located in the Continental USA.)
Email me to book a visit or to inquire about further details.
