School Visits

As a former high school teacher, I am very comfortable making school visits, and have made many throughout Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta.

Here are some presentations which I have given:

  • How does an idea turn into a story
  • Creating believable characters
  • Writing and researching historical fiction
  • Pioneer life
  • World War II
  • War and young people
  • What exactly does a writer do all day?

For my Pioneer life presentations I bring costumes and replica artefacts to share with the audience.

I am also comfortable presenting at conferences and have done so at the following events:

  • BookExpo Canada
  • International Reading Association, USA
  • NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English), USA
  • Thin Air, Winnipeg
  • Serendipity Conference, Vancouver
  • Vancouver Writer’s Festival
