I enjoy connecting with other writers, illustrators, students of all ages, and fans of books. If you're interested in having me speak or do a virtual visit for writers, publishing professionals, or classrooms, please contact me via email. Range of topics include how picture books are made, working with illustrators, writing queries and more (just ask!). Let me share my nearly 20 years of experience in making books as an art director, children's publisher, and writer with you.
