I’ve visited schools around the world and have spoken to thousands of students. Each experience is different, because each presentation is different.
I don’t use a canned presentation. I’ve learned that schools and classrooms have personalities of their own. Talking to young people is what I love most about being an author.
My style: Fun, interactive, educational.
What happens when I visit your school?
Classes have their own personalities. Some are talkative. Others are quiet. Some have lots of questions. Others don’t. Some kids love to read. Others groan at every paragraph. I work best when I’m able to adapt to the students. I prefer interaction, lots of conversation, and a robust Q&A. We talk about my books. We talk about writing. We talk about revision. We talk about life.
