Appearances and Upcoming Events

During the next year, I will be partnering with nonprofit organizations that serve needy children. Check in here frequently to learn where and when I’ll be appearing. If you can’t make the event in your area, I’ll post here the names of bookstores where you can purchase the book. A portion of the author profits from sales at that store will be donated to the organization. I am also available for school visits. Interested agencies and schools, please do not hesitate to contact me.

First stop on my charitable tour was the Children’s Health Council, a nonprofit that makes a huge difference in the lives of children who face developmental, behavioral, emotional, and learning challenges. I was ecstatic to launch my book among peers and friends who have become my family. We raised almost $1000 for the agency, and a generous group of donors doubled my contribution!
