I would love to pay your school a visit. I also hold virtual sessions for schools everywhere, so please don't hesitate to reach out, wherever you may be!

Here are some of the topics I cover:
The writing and book creating process
Turning ideas and inspiration into books
Moving and goodbyes
Dealing with our big emotions
Finding your inner ninja
Challenging gender stereotypes
And more!

Every presentation will be tailored to your needs and will vary depending on grade. For smaller groups and younger children, the session can also include a relevant craft (examples: postcard stamping, shrinky dink key rings, tasseled bookmarks, pipe cleaner puppies).

Other Speaking Engagements and Workshops
Picture book writing workshops for kids or aspiring authors
Parent talk about the joys and challenges of raising Highly Sensitive Children
Quiet workshops for small groups of children on managing big emotions and overstimulation
