I LOVE to do author visits to book stores, libraries and especially schools. My books are curriculum-based and many of my school programs (see below) fit well with STEM, SOLs and Common Core. And I can always tailor a program to meet your needs. A note for Florida schools--I will be writing biographies that fit your curriculum, so check back! My fee for an author visit in Florida is $700, which includes three programs of your choice and an optional Lunch with the Author (alternate fee arrangements can be made for schools with special circumstances).Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a visit. And check out my resource page--it's free!
STEM-based program: Amazing Animals (for any age)-- Learn about a pig that does math, a sky-diving pug, a kangaroo that saved her owner's life and many, many more true animal stories. Based on my National Geographic and Scholastic books.
How to Write Engaging Nonfiction (3rd grade and up)-- Students learn about my experience writing nonfiction and how they can write their own. This program is full of tips for young (and not-so-young) writers!
Punctuation programs (2nd grade and up)-- Choose from: PUNCTUATION'S MAGIC, featuring ALFIE THE APOSTROPHE and some interactive magic tricks; or FINAL MARKS COUNT! which includes a reading of PENNY AND THE PUNCTUATION BEE and an actual mini-punctuation bee.
For the very young---a fun, interactive visit from The Alphabet Lady that will help reinforce the alphabet and letter sounds.
