Public speaking is one of my favorite parts of the writing life. I enjoy sharing my passion for putting words on paper with readers and writers of all ages. Some of my favorite topics are:

* My Writing Life (Includes a short PowerPoint presentation.)
* Writing Historical Fiction
* Researching Historical Fiction
* "Where do you get your ideas?" Turning daily experience into story.

I'm open to tailoring my presentation to your needs. I love being challenged to think about something new!

I have given presentations to large and small school groups from preschool through high school, in person and via video conference. I've also spoken to teachers groups, writers groups, children's book writers conferences, church groups, parent organizations, and college and university classes.

My rates vary depending on type of presentation and distance from my home in Western Massachusetts.
