About this Skype lesson

In a 45-60 minute Skype visit, I'll describe my often frustrating 12 year journey to publication. I'll discuss where the ideas for my books came from, the unique ways each book needed to be written, and reveal some edits that made the books stronger. I'll talk about some beautiful and unexpected reactions to the books, and the steps Hollywood is taking to turn them into movies. And then I'll open it up for questions!

I am available for 2 Skype visits a week.

My high school American and world literature classes are extremely interested in discussing what it takes to make it as a writer. We would love talking with you and possibly even collaborating on a project!
