Discussing The Destiny of Sunshine Ranch with Young Readers!

This week, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Mrs. Abramson’s 6th grade students!

As some of you may know, my novel The Destiny of Sunshine Ranch is part of their Language Arts curriculum. As a bonus, I’m invited to visit the class and discuss the many elements of the story and writing process. This is my third visit in as many years and every visit is just fantastic!

The students have a long list of questions prepared, and they’re always so extremely thought out and insightful. What a gift for an author to not only meet readers who enjoyed her novel, but to discuss the story and characters in depth!

I always enjoy my visits and pray that the students get as much out of them as I do!
Thank you again, Mrs. Abramson!

Hey, Catholic teachers! This one is for you!

Have you considered inviting an author to speak to your students?

One of the highlights of what I do is speak directly to young readers of my novels. As some of you know, I’ve written about these visits and how it’s such a wonderful experience. And I’ve also heard directly from the students who have expressed their appreciation at the opportunity to discuss the stories, as well as the characters that they’ve come to know.

Author visits are extremely valuable to the author and the students, and this month, you can read more about this amazing opportunity, including my own personal experience and advice—and that of some other amazing authors—in the summer edition of Today’s Catholic Teacher. The article, “Bring an Author to School,” profiles the benefits of inviting authors to schools to speak directly to the students. Whether via in-person visits or virtual, teachers can add a valuable dimension to a their language arts curriculum. Check out the article and see which other authors are available for school visits!
