Presentation Description:

My goal through author visits is to foster a love of science, history, reading, and writing. I'm willing to work with you to develop a visit that provides an enriching experience for those involved. In the past I've worked with Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts, presented at writing conferences, and held workshops in school classrooms.
