Author Visits

I do speaking engagements, school visits, Skype visits, and run creative writing workshops. School libraries report a greater interest in reading and more students checking out books after I visit. 

Please contact me to inquire about my availability and rates.

“I was lucky enough to participate in one of Fred’s high school visits. He didn’t just talk at students but also tailored his presentation to be an interactive conversation. He shared his own personal experiences as a writer and growing up, but genuinely connected to students and their personal experiences, making it a powerful, affirming opportunity.”
