Author Address Wilmette, IL, USA
Genres: As author of 67 award-winning books, I write about a variety of topics in a number of genres--nonfiction (preschool through adult); historical fiction; biography; history; graphic novels; healthcare; special education; parenting
Presentations: Think lively conversations that include: idea sparkers, various writing formats and genres, writing practices that work, steps to publishing a book, writing tips, and what it's like to be an author. I often focus a presentation on a specific title that may fit into your curriculum, as requested, such as Michelle Obama: From Chicago to the White House, Tooth Tales from around the World, or Annie Shapiro and the Clothing Workers Strike. I also conduct fun writing workshops using music, games, and unusual pictures as idea generators. And I love questions.
Audiences: Since I write for readers preschool through adult, I feel comfortable talking with any age and size group. My background in special education helps me tailor material to different grades, and I speak often with adult groups about breaking into writing/publishing. Any size works for me, but I find the smaller and cozier the group more participants get out of presentations.
