School Visits

Want me to come visit your school?  I’d be happy to!

I am currently doing two types of school visits:


As the pandemic ebbs, I am beginning to do these once again.

I can deliver a humorous, informative, riveting presentation on how I get the ideas for my books — or teach writing seminars — or conduct lively question & answer sessions — or even customize a speech for special events, like awards ceremonies or literature festivals.  Just look at how rapt with attention these kids are:

And look how much fun these kids are having!

Now, imagine how much fun you’d be having if this was happening at your school!

Certainly, it’s easier to arrange a visit if you’re in Southern California, which is where I live.  But if you’re farther away, there are still options.  Sometimes, an actual visit can be arranged — or if that doesn’t work, you can always set up a Skype or Zoom session.


I can visit a school anywhere on earth via an on-line platform (preferably Zoom).  I will do the same humorous, informative, riveting presentation on how I got the ideas for my various book series, followed by a question and answer session.

Finally, if you want some additional materials for teaching about my books, you can find curriculum guides for all of them right here under the “Resources & Downloads” section of each book.
