School Programs - Free Books for School Libraries


I offer a variety of presentationsauthor in residence programs and conduct workshops for children at schools. All bookings of a full day or longer will receive a complimentary set of my seven novels for the school library. This special offer is valid until May 31, 2013.
I offer a variety of presentations for grades three to eight, but can work with grades one and two as well. I cover such topics as where ideas come from, story structure, editing and revision, character development, time travel stories, history and research, plus many other aspects of writing and publishing.
I will present to around one hundred students at a time, although we can also look at workshops with smaller groups or individual classes.
Each of my novels provide ideas for classroom projects and you may find some suggestions on the Study Guides page on my website. 
Contact me for details of fees and availability for school presentations.

Its great to see authors such as yourself going to school libraries and talking to kids about your books. It gets them excited to read, and to think about what they are reading.

Thank you, although very few schools actually invite authors to visit these days. Hopefully that will change in the future.
