Are you an educator looking for an engaging and relatable speaker to inspire your students to fall in love with reading and writing? Look no further! As a writer of middle grade books, I specialize in crafting stories that captivate the imaginations of even the most reluctant readers, especially boys. My characters explore important themes such as empathy, privilege, and bias, all while embarking on thrilling sci-fi adventures at breakneck speeds. With action-packed scenes that rival even the most popular superhero movies and video games, my books are the perfect gateway for kids to discover the joy of reading. Invite me to speak to your students and I'll share my passion for storytelling and inspire them to become avid readers and writers themselves.
