Visits & Events

Author Visits

Let’s talk books, reading, and writing! I would love to visit your school, library, bookstore, or festival, either in person or virtually. I live in St. Louis but am open to traveling. I enjoy discussing the writing process and my publication journey, and after September 2021, I’d especially love it if your group has read Your Life Has Been Delayed. My debut novel is targeted at young adult audiences, ages 12 and up, so it’s a great fit for middle and high school readers.

Conferences/Writing Groups

I love talking to other writers and have presented to multiple groups about my road to traditional publication (10 years in the making!). I queried for seven years and can give tips on querying agents, participating in contests, and fielding multiple offers from agents.

If you are interested in arranging an in-person or virtual author visit, please use my contact page to check my availability, rates, and more specific topic options.
