I am available for in person school and library visits in the Oregon and Washington areas and virtual school visits wherever you are located! Below are some examples of the visit types I offer, although I’m always happy to discuss your community’s needs and work with you to arrange a visit that fits best. I am also available for specialized writing workshops for teens and adults, including classes on character, voice, plot, writing productivity, and more!


In this session, I will do a read aloud of my picture book The Meaning of Pride, which is a celebration of queer representation as seen through historical and familiar figures of note in the LGBTQIA+ community. Afterward, I’ll discuss with the students what pride means to them and we’ll brainstorm things we are each proud of. A Q&A can follow if time allows. Best for elementary grades, but can be fun for all ages!

This presentation takes students through the process of generating a book idea all the way up through publication. There are many steps along the way, including writing the book, finding a publisher, and actually publishing the book. This is great for classes with students (or programming for adults) who are interested in the publication process or may be considering pursuing publication themselves. A Q&A can follow if time allows. Recommended for high school.



In this interactive workshop, students will learn about the four main elements of a character driven story. Using these, students will have the opportunity to participate in a fun activity that allows them to flex their creative muscles and play a game together. Each student will need four pieces of scratch paper or notecards in order to play! A Q&A can follow if time allows. Great for middle and high school students, especially for classes that thrive on being actively engaged rather than sitting and listening to a speaker.
