As a former elementary school teacher, I would very much enjoy giving one of three kids' presentations of your choice: Inspire!, Writing Powerful Sentences, or Writing Powerful Stories. For second-graders, the time allowed should be no more than 45 minutes. 

For parents, home schools, teachers, librarians, or other adults, I am available for the following adult presentations: PTA & Home School, Library, or School Presentations.

Of course, book signings and other events can also be scheduled. 


Currently, the greater Kansas City area including all outlying cities and townships.


As an introductory rate, my fee for 2018 is $100.00 per presentation.


I am happy to accept checks, made payable to Chickadee Words, on the day of the event.


If I have to cancel, I will do my best to reschedule to the earliest date available that suits you.

If you have to cancel, I would appreciate as much notice as possible in order to be able to offer that date to someone else.
