Dana's first book release event at Once Upon a Time bookstore in Montrose, CA

Would you like me to visit your school, library, bookstore, or book event?

I love talking with kids in classroom settings and other venues. In my presentation, I talk about how Avalon and Birdie came to be and use my journey as writer to inspire students to trust their own creativity. Through discussing the truths and myths around the creative process, I encourage students to do what they love!

I’m currently available for in-person visits in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and North Georgia but open to other locations around the country, too! Plus, I can Skype to anywhere!
