Events/Appearances

Author panels, Writing conferences, Group signings, Solo signings, Readings, Multi-city book tours, Corporate events.

I’ve said yes to everything but the dress. You name it, I’ve probably done it. What’s more fun than meeting readers and talking about writing? Eating pizza doesn’t count. That trumps everything. It’s not a fair fight.

I would love to participate in your event. I’ve been told I’m funny in person–and not by someone who’s related to me. Send me an email, and let’s see if we can make this happen.
