Author Visits

I present to K-3 to groups no larger than 100 students so there’s more personal interaction with the kids. 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. 

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. (Airfare is determined from             Denver International Airport.) 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. 

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

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.

Online Chat Visits

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 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 or to inquire about further details.


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). 

Book An Author

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