The fun part about reading, writing, and adventuring is getting to share the love with other readers, writers, adventurers, students, teachers, and other great thinkers. I'm a bookworm and history buff with an incurable wanderlust that has taken me to many stops around the globe, including Japan—where I set my first book (NOW AND ZEN), and where I served as the Regional Advisor for The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. Besides pinch-hitting as a substitute teacher from time to time (an adventure in itself!) I'm an anti-bullying advocate—a proud member of Young Adult Authors Against Bullying, and contributor to the DEAR BULLY anthology.

I present on a broad range of subjects, including—but not limited to—writing, publishing, history, travel, and bullies. Popular topics for school presentations in the past have included the use of forensics in fiction, the process of writing and publishing, how travel and life experiences inform my writing, the elements of mysteries, and story creation. I also present writing workshops in person and online.

Though I currently live in Japan, I travel frequently and am happy to schedule visits where time and location permits. I am also available for skype visits, regardless of time zone. Contact me for pricing and availability.
