School Visit Topics & Activities

My books include a variety of themes of friendship, feminism, LGBTQ acceptance, second chances and redemption, the hero’s journey, and the joy of being unafraid to be yourself. My stories are set in queer-normalized worlds with no anti-woman bias where anyone can be a hero! Presentations can be customized across a variety of topics, including: twisting fairytale retellings, finding yourself and your voice through storytelling, and the craft of writing. I’m open to Q&As, classroom visits, and book clubs!
