Author Visits

I present to K-4. A typical visit is two 45-minute 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. 

To set up an out-of-state school visit, contact my booking agent, Michele Kophs of Provato Marketing, at

COLORADO SPECIALS: Reduced honorarium for above school visit schedule, or the option to do 1 school assembly for half the cost. Contact me directly at

PLEASE NOTE: If your school has security guards or teachers armed with guns, I will not visit.

Team up for Literacy: Two Authors, One Visit


In response to schools wanting an author visit for all of K-6, Teresa Funke and I have teamed 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.


Apply for an Amber Brown grant that if chosen, could bring an author (you can request me)  to your school plus you'll get $250 to make it a memorable day for your students, and $250 worth of books. Application time is between Nov. 1 and April 15 each year. 

Online Chat Visits


I also love doing online visits and offer free 25-minute sessions to individual classrooms in the USA if:

1) Your students have read my books and

2) Your school places a minimum order of 25 books. (I can arrange to have signed books mailed to your school if located in the Continental USA.)

Email me to book a visit as I'm only scheduling 2 per month September - May. (Only one available in March and May. Two available in April).


Colorado authors have partnered with Second Star to the Right Bookstore to offer free Skype sessions depending on the number of books purchased. Here is the program and the authors who have signed on (including me). 

Introduction to Natasha Wing Podcast 

Here's a fun interview where your students will learn more about me and my Night Before series. It's a great introduction before a school visit or online chat.

Book An Author

What better way to connect your students with books than to meet the person who wrote them.
