For Teachers: Preparing for a School Visit

Visiting schools is one of the joys of being a children's author. I would be happy to visit you and your students.

    Just a few requests, please.

My visit will be more meaningful to students if they are familiar with some of my work before my visit. My books are available in many libraries and many school libraries subscribe to some of the magazines in which I have published work. 
I prefer to talk to single or combined classes, with a maximum of 45 students at a time. I can do up to 4 school presentations a day. For a larger group, please check with me ahead of time to arrange microphones, etc.
I ask that at least one teacher or aide be in attendance during my presentation.
In some workshops, I like to project digital slides, or show a Powerpoint presentation.
If you plan to include book sales and autographing, please note:
  Copies of Trouble in Nathan's Woods can be purchased from any bookstore or directly from me.

  Copies of Cyrus Field's Big Dream can be purchased from any bookstore or directly from me. It is also available as an eBook.

  I have copies of Captain Mac. It is also available as an eBook. 

  Send a notice home with students, so they may come prepared with correct payment if they wish to purchase a book.

  On the day of my visit, please provide correct spelling of names for any books to be autographed.

I am available for virtual school visits, Zoom format preferably, and am happy to arrange for book sales. Contact me if you have questions or concerns.
Fees: See Fee Schedule.
