I'm living proof for kids: You really can grow up to be a children's book author!
Allow me to
As a work-for-hire writer, I get a steady stream of assignments from publishers. I've seen new books
I've written hit library and bookstore shelves
every year since 2007. My programs cover:
my personal path to writing children's books,
how work-for-hire authoring works,
how creativity figures in, whether writing fiction or nonfiction,
how the publishing process works,
Each program is tailor-designed for
your class, grade, or school.
I'd love to meet your students!
That's me: a small child with big dreams
