I love talking to students and I’d be honored to speak at your elementary school! Getting kids to read and showing them that books are super cool is my passion. 

Below please find the answers to some frequently asked questions:

1) What is your author visit like?


I have a fun and interactive presentation that covers the following topics:


  • Why books are super cool

  • How I got the idea for Avina Heart

  • Come with me behind the scenes:

    • How to write a page-turning story

    • How to create fascinating characters

    • How I work with my editor and illustrator

  • Let’s read (15 minutes)

  • Questions and answers


2) How do my students get their books?


Once we’ve arranged a date for the visit, I’ll provide you with order forms to distribute to your students. I will then bring the pre-ordered books on the day of my visit. I'm also happy to sign a personalized inscription for each student.


3) Where do you travel?


I do in-person school visits (public and private schools) in the following districts in British Columbia: Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Mission, Langley, and Surrey. 

3) Do you do virtual visits?

Absolutely! I would be thrilled to visit your school via the internet.
