I Love Author Visits!

The best part of being an author is interacting with readers! As a former teacher, I truly enjoy visiting schools, book clubs, libraries or other groups.  If you are out of the Washington, DC Metropolitan area, feel free to contact me about a virtual visit via videoconferencing. If you would like to inquire  about visits please contact me via the Contact the Author page.

How about reading A LITTLE WICKED with your book club!

There are plenty of ideas, history, and situations to think about in A LITTLE WICKED. Talk about them with friends, a library group, book club or a Parent Child Book Club.  Check the Curriculum Guide for a helpful way to discuss A LITTLE WICKED and enjoy yourselves while you do.

What about me? I read it, too!  Include me in your group meeting (of six or more people) through a FREE twenty to forty-minute Skype visit. Please contact me well in advance to coordinate dates and times. I can share stories with your group about the researching and writing of A LITTLE WICKED (like where Dory’s name comes from) and/or answer your questions. I can also send A LITTLE WICKED postcards, bookmarks, and/or pens to your group!

About the Book

After her Scottish village is attacked, 12-year-old Dory must flee her home without her family. Once the granddaughter of the chief, now branded a fugitive, Dory embarks on a dangerous journey trekking through the Scottish wilderness and crossing the Atlantic in disguise in order to reach the distant and unfamiliar Massachusetts Bay Colony in the New World. There she must survive a crisis quite different from the one in Scotland but no less fatal. The year is 1692 and Dory is plunged into mayhem on both sides of the ocean.
