Virtual Visits


So, if you are reading this, I assume you are a teacher and/or a school librarian. YAY!! THANK YOU for all that you do! Our kids need champions like you more than ever.

THANK YOU for your interest in a virtual visit with me. (Email below)

FYI, I do have videos that I have made for you. Feel free to use and share them.

One for the Murphys page:



Thank you,


Connecting with readers is my most favorite part of this author gig! Therefore, I am happy to do a “Meet the Author” Zoom visit in which I will begin with a brief introduction re: where my books “came from” and then take three questions from your readers (total of 15-20 minutes) at no charge. I ask that your students have either read or heard one of my books. Please have questions prepared ahead of time as our virtual visit will run more smoothly that way.

The cost of a full 45-50 minute Skype visit is $350. I will give a brief intro but this is mostly just straight Q&A for your kids. (no powerpoint/screen sharing)

THANK YOU for your interest in connecting with me! To inquire about a virtual visit, please e-mail your answers to the following questions to my incredible booking agent, Andrea at:

(1) What kind of virtual visit are you interested in?

(a) Free 15 minute Skype when I answer 3 questions from your kids

(b) 45-minute virtual visit where I will provide a brief introduction and then answer questions/chat with your kids for 45-50 minutes. ($350)

(c) A full powerpoint/screen sharing experience for your kids where I will do much of what I would do at an in-person visit. This program is tailor made to your needs, specifically, by aligning my presentation to your answers to a special questionnaire filled out by you ahead of time. I        will also include a Q&A for your kids. Program up to 70 minutes. This includes a digitally signed bookmark for each of your kids which will be shipped directly from the printer. ($1,000)

NOTE: No recording of presentations, please.

Honorarium MUST be received before bookmarks are shipped or virtual visit can occur.

(2) Your location 

(3) Grade level(s) of the children who will attend

(4) How MANY children will attend?

(5) Which of my books will your students will have read? (This year, I must prioritize schools whose kids are familiar with my work. It makes for a deeper visit for them.)

(3) What time of year you’d prefer (if you know)

** If you are a ONE BOOK/ONE SCHOOL inquiry, PLEASE let us know! 

Please send your responses to these questions to my fantastico Author Visit Coordinator, Andrea, at

Wishing you a Silver Dollar Day!
