School Visits, Library Events, and
Appearance Opportunities

There’s nothing I love more than connecting with readers and writers! I’ve done school visits for grades 6-12 across the Chicagoland area, as well as library events for all ages. Giving students and writers the opportunity to chat with a published author is a great opportunity to spark inspiration and show that achieving your dreams is possible; let’s schedule an event together! 

Choose between these options, available as in-person visits (Chicagoland) or as virtual events:

Author Visit

(45-60 minutes)

My author visits focus on my journey to becoming a published author, touching on my wins, setbacks, and lessons I’ve learned about what it means to follow your passion and never give up. 


  • Q&A session
  • Book signing (if in person) or mailed signed bookplates (if virtual) 

Great for:

  • Middle and high schools
  • Libraries
  • Book clubs

Writing Workshops

(60 minutes) 

My workshops focus on the questions I get asked most by writers. Through real-world experience and interactive activities, I give tangible tips and tricks to help writers find inspiration and support on their next steps. 


  • Q&A session
  • PDF worksheets to guide through topics

Great for:

  • Teens and adults
  • Libraries
  • Writing groups

Available topics: 

  • Writing Productivity Tips: How to Stay on Track with Your Writing Goals
  • How to Find Your Next Big Idea and Start Your Novel 
  • How to Get Published: A Step-by-Step Guide
