Talks

I enjoy speaking for all kinds of audiences—librarians, teachers, book clubs, women’s organizations, bookstore groups, collectors, authors, readers, students—in fact, just about anyone who wants to hear about my books and how I write them. Terms are negotiable.

Most of my talks are PowerPoints, but they can also be presented as lectures. Most can be adapted for age groups 10+ (exceptions noted). Available programs include:
