Sometimes I show up at conferences, retreats, bookstores, and haunted places to chat about books, writing, mindfulness, chasing ghosts…or all of the above! Come say hi and swap a ghost story, if you can!
What, when, and where?
YOUNG WRITERS & ARTISTS CONFERENCE
I’ll be presenting workshops about writing to students from across Iowa and Minnesota in 5th – 8th grade.
When? Tuesday, March 7 & Wednesday, March 8, 2023
Where? Bethany College in Mankato, MN
This event is for children in grades 3-8. Students must provide their own chaperone. Online registration ends March 5th.
Fun Fact: When I talk to kids about being an author, I often reference a time in my childhood that really encouraged me to see myself as a writer – when one of my middle school teachers recommended that I attend a young writers conference in Mankato, MN. There was a tornado warning, so we spent much of the day crouched in the boy’s bathroom with our hands covering our heads. You guys, THIS IS THE SAME CONFERENCE! I’m always stoked to talk to kids about writing, but this one might be a little extra special. I wonder if the boy’s bathroom looks the same as it did 30+ years ago! I’ll report back!
GHOST STORIES INK PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION
When? Friday, April 14 – Sunday, April 16, 2023

There are a limited number of tickets available in each tier, and these events tend to sell out quickly.
