I am always willing to work with your group if you'd like me to come and give a talk. I have been teaching 8th grade ELA for more that 20 years, so I have experience in not only writing, but also in trying to "sell" writing and reading to one of the toughest audiences out there. I have spoken to library groups about the writing and publishing process. I've spoken to women's alumni groups about finding balance with family, job and writing. I have also spoken to historical societies about the amount of research that goes into writing historical fiction. I am also willing to create a program specifically for your program or school. My speaking fee is negotiable and I look forward to finding a program that best fits your needs. Please, don't hesitate to contact me if you're at all interested.
