Story Time and Book Talk

I love sharing To Iowa in the Back Seat with students! My 20 years in education makes me comfortable with any grade K-6, one class or an entire grade. I will read my book and lead grade-level Q&A about writing and publishing, and I am happy to accommodate all-day visits.

Please email me via my contact page with your event requests and questions with “author visit” in the subject line. I look forward to connecting with you and young readers!

Book Tour in Iowa!

How can I sum up my Iowa Book Tour in words? 3 schools, 1400 students, 19 readings, 3 libraries, met 30 students I am related to, found my book in a real bookstore, donated and gifted books, made amazing small-world connections, and filled my heart to bursting seeing so many love my story!
