I'm a children's author from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, husband, devoted father of two, and school speaker. I travel around educating students about the book making process, focusing on the writing, illustrating and publishing aspects. I like to teach kids that it's great to dream, and dream big! I'd love to visit your school and speak to your students. All of my books, and information about my author visits can be found at www.bookvisits.com
Hello! I tour around the country speaking to students of all ages about my process of writing, illustrating and publishing. I keep a loose, fun, but educational presentation about what goes into book making! Typically I cover bullet-point topics that incorporate all aspects of the book making process. I like to do Flash Fiction with the students to give them a jolt of creativity. My illustrator usually tags along, and he performs a LIVE illustration for them. We split into group sessions where I do Q&A, and other students watch my illustrator perform. I hold fun prize raffle give-a-ways at the end. I give away a Kindle Fire!
