Author Address: Forreston, IL, USA
Genres: Contemporary fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, magazine short stories, picture book, realistic fiction
Presentations: "Meet the Author" (see descriptioon below);
Audiences: I'm happy to Skype with children in kindergarten through 8th grade in any type of school setting (public, private, home) and in public libraries. I also will Skype with children or adults who are in book clubs that are reading my books.
Available Times: From 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. weekdays if I have an opening
No recording of Skype Sessions without permission from the author.
No Cost Meet the Author Visit: This is about a 10 -- 15 minute visit geared to the age of the audience. I'll introduce myself, talk about the book or books of mine that the children have read, and answer a few questions. Since I write and illustrate, I can offer information about how art can enhance or enrich text.
In-Depth Visit Length: This varies from 30 -- 60 minutes with a lot of interaction with the students.
In-Depth Visit Cost: The cost depends on the time frame and how much individual preparation is required. I've done a series of visits to discuss one of my novels in depth, but I could do a onetime or series on fiction-writing or a discussion of several of my books. The cost could be between $100 and $600. Please see below for contact information.
Prerequisites: In order for me to do any Skype presentation, I need the audience to read (or have read to them) prior to the visit any two of the following books: Little Prince Know-It-All, Lazy Bones Jones, Leaping Lena, Something in the Air*, Don't Call Me Marda, Land of Another Sun, Sean's War*,The Shadowed Unicorn, A Horse for All Seasons, Waiting to Forget. The children should have prepared two questions to ask near the end of the "Meet the Author Visit."
*These two books I illustrated but did not write.
