School Visits


I’d love to visit your school or book club—I also do career day presentations! I have a PowerPoint program available that is suitable for either large assemblies or small groups. I share my artwork, writer’s journey, and demystify the publishing process including the answer to everyone’s favorite question: just how much do money do authors make? On hand are the stars of the Magic Repair Shop books—my hissing cockroaches—for students to get up close and personal with—if they dare.


If you are interested in scheduling a school or library program, please email for availability. 

Virtual Author Visits

I offer two kinds of virtual author visits, using Skype videoconferencing software.

For Book Clubs: Amanda loves book clubs! If your book club is reading one of her novels, she'd love to join your discussion. 

Time: 20-30 minutes Cost: FREE

For Schools & Libraries: Lunch with an Author - When your students have finished reading one of Amanda's books, she would be happy to join them via Skype for a lunchtime question and answer session. 

Available: most weekdays/some weekends. Time: 20-30 minutes. Cost: FREE
