author visits

For over ten years, I’ve visited schools and libraries to share my books and ideas about writing. I’d love to present at your school, library or special event.



Stephanie spent two days with the pre-k to fifth grade kids during the Blake LitFest. She had fun, age-appropriate interactive presentations, and her stories kept the kids engaged and asking questions. We loved working with Stephanie!- Jacquelyn Fletcher-Johnson, The Blake School LitFest Co-Chair
Stephanie helped the students create interesting characters by asking probing questions, which led to mapping out exciting individual stories. At the end of the workshop we had time for a Q&A session and autographs!- Rayna Lechelt, 3rd grade teacher at Prairie View Elementary, Eden Prairie, MN
We loved hearing the process of making a book and listening to Stephanie's stories.- Erin Geary, 2nd grade teacher at Lakeview Public School, Cottonwood, MN
