My childhood library was a mansion. A castle. A book-lined building of burgundy brick. A portal to imagination.

Adventure. Possibility.
People I met through reading.

Trapped in a tiny town, I reconnoitered the world. Letters. Language. Pictures, sometimes. I toured England and New York. India and Indiana. Southeast Asia. The Arctic Circle. Space. Thousands of years ago. Millennia from now.

Books took me

My library
made me
a better writer.

I want to meet them.
Libraries are booking me now for Fall/Winter appearances,
reading clubs and panel discussions.

If you’d like to see me or my books at a library near you, here’s what you can do:

  • Recommend my books to librarians. They are available through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, standards for library ordering.
  • Tell event librarians about my presentations. I have a growing list of librarians who are willing to endorse me as a reliable, entertaining speaker for any library event.
  • Ask librarians to book me for your library event/reading group/panel. They may contact me via my Contact Page HERE.
