A Great Presentation for Adults & Kids

The focus of my talks is to encourage more reading, writing and basic enthusiasm for learning. My partner, Annabelle the dairy cow (puppet), is also part of the presentation. I share examples of books I wrote when I was a youngster and some that have been created by my own kids.

When speaking at state reading and library conferences, writing workshops, schools and farm groups across the country, I stress the importance of writing from the heart. Whatever the setting, I strive to make the experience personal and memorable for those in attendance.
