Please take a look around. On my site, you’ll find free downloadable activity guides to be used along with most of my books.

If you’ve planned a school visit or other literary event and need hi-res photos of me, you can download them from here.

If book covers are needed, you can find them on individual book pages.

If you’re an author looking to publish independently, please understand that I only work through my literary agent, Andrea Brown Literary Agency.

I’d love to visit your school library. If you’d like to inquire about a school visit, please visit my booking agent, The Booking Biz.

Thank you for welcoming me and my books into your libraries!
