School Visits

Do you mind if I drop in at your school? My greatest thrill is to share my passion for turning dreams into reality with young people. I would be honored to come to your school, classroom, or any place where dreamers and book lovers rule!

Brand new book coming January 2021 

A tale of friendship, empathy and a LOT of hair! –There’s not much Claire’s hair can’t do. It’s a jump rope, it ties up bad guys, and only needs washing once a year! But can her wild and wacky tresses make her best friend laugh again?

Illustrated By: Sara Weingartner

A humorous dose of healthy eating advice–What’s a kid to do when they get the hungries? Munch on some broccoli or dig into a heap of fries? Henry loves his junk food but finds he’s not the only one–it’s ‘Henry to the Rescue’ time!

Illustrated By: Brian Barber
