Find Courage – Read!
I adore my young readers and I’m enthusiastic about traveling across the US (and beyond!) to meet them.
I give inspirational talks on the power of books to help us find the strength we need to conquer whatever mountains stand before us.
You can often find me giving writing workshops and presentations to small groups of students in libraries and classrooms where we share from the heart. Or, you’ll see me giving large, motivating talks about overcoming adversity to assemblies of 250-450 students.
My most recent large talks include a whirlwind speaking tour with Scholastic Book Fairs in Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia, and the Special Needs Keynote speech at the University of South Carolina-Upstate Diversity Conference.
