I love talking with students about literacy and writing. I'm a professor of public speaking and create engaging presentations for both small and large groups. If you're interested in a school visit, please reach out. I offer discounted rates for books and typically waive my speaking fee with a book order. 


I love live events! I always plan to attend lots of book festivals, comic cons, and conferences throughout the year. Contact me if you'd like me to present at your next event. You can also scroll down to find out where I'll be next.
