SPOOK-A-LICIOUS!  (For Middle-Grades)

Four hot spooky books and a hit television series all get discussed and dissected in this fast-moving, interactive presentation. As a former television writer and now an author, I use videos, novels and comics to cover the many types of writing. Also in the presentation: Creating Juicy Problems/Fun Characters/Handy Tips/Research/ Brainstorming/Editing and Publishing. I read from my novels and talk about the importance of inspiration and imagination. My presentation runs one hour.

WHODUNIT?  (For Grades 2 – 4)

Mysteries appeal to kids of every age. They love to solve puzzles, and nothing is more satisfying than the feeling they get when pieces finally start to fit and a picture begins to form. In my lively Whodunit? presentation I focus on my comedic, kid detective series The Ghost and Max Monroe.

Students will be introduced to the mystery genre. Topics explored are:

Vocabulary (sleuth – alibi – motive etc.)
Characters (detective – sidekick – suspects)
Elements of Writing a Mystery (crime – victim – clues etc.)

Interactive portion: Students will get to flex their memory skills and also solve a mini-mystery.
