Peter and RoccoWaggit's Tale CoverWaggit Again CoverWaggit Forever


Presentations: I visit schools and libraries where I do a PowerPoint presentation about how the Waggit series came about, as well as talking about therapy dogs and pet adoption. I have a very popular assistant at these presentations called Rocco. You can see both of us in the photograph at the top of this page on the left. I sometimes think I could just send Rocco and the event would be just as successful - maybe more so! I also discuss the writing process with the audience.

Audiences: My age group is 8 - 12, but the grade that seems to be the most popular is fourth grade.

Available Times: Whenever I'm not booked to do something else.
