I must limit author visits when on deadline so please book early if you're interested in a program for your school, library, or group for 2023-2024. This is my published event schedule, but often events are in discussion for a period of time before they are posted here.

I am a speaker and nonfiction children's author living in Pennsylvania (near Maryland and Delaware). If you're concerned about your budget, please contact me. I can usually work within a group's budget.

Please contact me to discuss your group’s specific needs.
