Presentation Description

I love to talk about incorporating personal experiences and world events into fiction, as I've done with my last two books.I'm Good and Other Lies (coming in Fall, 2021)  is a young adult novel about--in part--a teen struggling in lockdown. Who is Tanksy?, my 2019 middle grade novel, is a satire of the 2016 US election, set at a middle school. I'm also happy to talk more generally on the craft of writing. I'm happy to tailor my presentations. I can also talk about the business of writing. Having worked as an editor as well as an author, I have a unique perspective.
