School Visits and Events

I love talking to kids and adults about reading and writing. If you are interested in scheduling a visit or event, please contact me to inquire about rates and availability. I am available for virtual visits and limited local in-person visits. I reside in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Virtual Visits

I am able to do paid visits  that are 40-45 minutes in length for a classroom or assembly.
