I love visiting schools and libraries to talk to pre-teens/teens. My presentation focuses on on the areas of: living a purpose driven life, finding and cutlivating their passions and the importance of literacy and learning. It then transitions into my personal experience and journey towards publication and I share a little bit about my works. I also read exceprts from some of my award-winning novels. Truly, giving back to young adults and empowering them to be productive citizens is the whole reason I write. I did public speaking for a large rehab corporation for several years across the country and I am very comfortable answering questions and engaging my audience at their level.
Along with my standard presentation, I offer workshops on the following topics:
- From Idea to Page
- How to write a Page Turner
- Creative Writing 101
- The Life of an Author
