FUN--MULTICULTURAL--EDUCATIONAL

As the author of 14 books,
I love gassing up my Magic Carpet of Books, 

and flying into classrooms anywhere there is a SKYPE connection.



I live in the US now, but I grew up in Australia, so some of my books have a Down Under flavor. I Skype globally, depending on how well the time zones mesh.



Many teachers have told me, that after my visit, their classes became much more enthusiastic about reading and writing. Meeting a real life author, and learning how their favorite book came to life, can work marvelous MAGIC!

THE DEAL

I begin by introducing myself, asking about their favorite books, and showing some Australian Aboriginal artifacts. Then a short question time. I then read a story, and chat about how to write stories that HOOK readers. More in-depth details about writing and how books are created, depending on the age of the class, and what the teacher wants me to include. The final Q and A is often the highlight of my visit!



Do email me, and we can chat further about your class needs.
