If you would like to have me speak at a school or on a conference panel, please email me directly.
I love talking about writing and sharing insights about: revision, publishing, the query process, how to get an agent, the submission process, how to overcome rejection, and what it's like to edit a young adult series with an editor at a traditional publisher.
So far, my favorite question asked by young people is, 'What's it like to do your dream job?' I enjoy sharing the 'behind-the-scenes' of author life, and the highs and lows of an industry that can be hard to break into. I love connecting with readers and writers, and inspiring people to pursue their dreams.
