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
