Creative Writing Funshops 

My passion in life is writing, and I love to share my story with children of all ages. For many years I have taught Creative Writing "Funshops" for students at libraries and schools. My programs are interactive and inspiring. And as I write in many genres I can adapt to any grade level.

I talk about the journey of the story from the spark of an idea to a book in your hands! I bring props and help students build their own characters and storylines with lots of laughs. I promise to have your students excited and inspired by the discovery that they have many wonderful stories ready to bubble out of their imaginations.                    2hour program
