Keynote and Conference Programs for Adults

To inquire about a visit from Lynda, please email her booking agent at


Writing workshops (for adults):

I will do programs for adult writers on topics such as finding an agent, organization for the non-linear thinker, and marketing.

Keynotes/Presentations for Teacher Groups:

Considering that FISH IN A TREE is one giant thank you note to teachers, I love speaking with them. First of all, I was a teacher for almost 10 years, so I know the experience –the frustrations and triumphs– very well. My presentation is designed to tell my stories – as a former child, teacher, and author. Designed to inspire, motivate, and educate I discuss the impact a teacher can have on a student’s life through personal stories and discuss suggestions for reaching the unreachable child and/or reluctant reader.

For a 60-minute keynote my cost is $2,500 (Can be tailored to each organization’s wishes.)

I do NOT charge for lodging or travel (for a single day) within the State of Connecticut. The exception may be Fairfield County as traffic makes it very difficult to get there in the morning. If you can schedule your presentation time a bit later, that helps :-)

Areas outside of CT: I will ask to be reimbursed for a hotel room for whatever number of days I present +1. For example, if I am scheduled to present for two days, I’d ask for three nights. (I will lessen this if possible). I will also ask to be reimbursed for travel expenses and a rental car. I usually book these as packages through Expedia for a discount.

**I prefer to book my own transportation and hotel when necessary.
