Every year I receive letters and email from students all across the U.S.--and often from other countries. I do my best to be helpful, but many of the questions that I’m asked can be found in my books. If you write to me, I may post your letter or email in whole or in part on my Facebook page or use it in a speech. (If I do, I will include only your first name, the name of your school, and/or your state/country.) If you don’t hear from me right away, I am probably in the middle of a project of my own--researching it, writing it, or revising it.
For Event Organizers
I am a teacher--always have been, always will be. I like to say that I never stopped teaching, I simply changed venues. As Literacy Consultant . . .I have always enjoyed visiting schools and have traveled to present programs to students on three continents--North America, South America, and Europe. I long ago lost count of how many schools I’ve visited, some more than once or twice. But I’ve been to schools in every state of the U.S., except for Maine and Oklahoma. (What’s up with them?!) It was a difficult decision to make, but after thirty-two years of visiting schools, I have decided to retire from making school visits.I no longer offer Skype visits, as they lack the energy and give-and-take of an in-person program. Nothing beats a visit by a real, live auhor or illustrator.For book festivals and conferences of educators and fellow-writers, please contact me directly at the link below.e: firstname.lastname@example.orgTOP
