I love talking with readers, from school groups to book clubs to festivals to the guy stuck next to me on an airplane (ok, that last part might be a lie).


I love participating in book festivals and speaking on panels. I’ve participated in the Decatur Book Festival, Houston Teen Book Con, the Southern Festival of Books (Nashville), the Vegas Valley Book Festival, the Southern Kentucky Book Festival, and many more. I’m always looking to add to the list, so email me for more information.

School Visits

I have done school visits for students from 5th grade through college. With younger students, we do group writing exercises and answer questions about writing and publishing. With older students, I do a presentation on writing and publishing with a Q&A to follow. Based in Georgia and a huge fan of road trips, I’m easily available for school visits across the southeast. I charge an honorarium + travel expenses, though the honorarium is flexible if you are able to pre-sell my books through a local bookstore. I’m willing to work within your budget and on a sliding scale for school districts in high need areas. Email me for more information.

Skype Visits

I’m available to chat with school groups and book clubs via Skype. I charge a small honorarium on a sliding scale based on your budget. Email
