Genres: Children's picture books
Presentations: Thanks for writing. I love doing author appearances. I present to all ages, even adults and will be happy to stay and autograph books which you may order through any book vendor if you choose. Book sales are not required My presentation involves how I started my writing career at age six and how a picture book is made, from conception, through editing, illustration, etc. I show photos of myself as a child, my family, and the many steps of the book publishing process in a Power Point. I try to emphasize the fact that no story is finished with the first draft and even professional writers have to revise and edit over and over. Of course, I also read to the kids in my best pirate voice. I’m presently reading HOW I BECAME A PIRATE and PIRATES DON’T CHANGE DIAPERS. We always have a lot of fun. I also teach writing classes. I'd love to visit and I look forward to hearing from you. Melinda
