I have several topics for speaking engagements. My most popular are: Becoming an Author, Powerful Words, and Sober by the Grace of God.  Perhaps you have a topic I haven't thought of yet. Just let me know what kind of talk you'd like me to give, and I will consider it. During Becoming An Author, I sing a silly song I wrote for 5th grade hygiene called "You Can Tell by the Smell."

Author Visits to Schools

I can come to Home school group meetings, Elementary schools, Private schools, and Charter schools to do an all day Author Visit. I can meet with each grade level and teach a lesson in figurative language using my two children's books; Call Me Lizzy and Henry Listens Harder. I can also do a convocation style program on Writing with Powerful Words with students in K-2, 3-4 , and 5-6 grade levels that also incorporates figurative language which is tested in Common Core and State proficiency tests.

Book Signing

I am available to do a book signing at your place of business or book store. Just send me an email and we will work out the details.

Every Situation is Different

If your business or school has a specified amount that they are willing to pay for a speaker or Author Visit, and it is different than my fee, please talk to me and I will work with you. If your business or school has no fee for outside speakers or authors, PTO's and PTG's are good helpers for finding funds.
