Author Visits

Interested in having the author visit your school? Please contact Mark at for availability and rates.

Author visits include classroom and/or grade level presentations. Being a 2nd grade teacher, Mark is able to adjust the presentations to meet the needs of each particular grade level and presentations are tied to the state standards. Mark discusses the writing process/publishing process including ideas, prewriting, word choice, revising and editing, finding a publisher, and the illustrations. Mark relates his experiences writing his books to the work students are producing in their own classrooms.

Student participation and interaction is encouraged.
