Presentations: I offer a wide variety of presentations for grades three to eight, and on a personal visit can work with grades one and two as well. I cover such topics as where ideas come from, story structure, editing and revision, character development, time travel stories, history, research and more. Details of school programs can be found at http://www.simon-rose.com/school_programs.htm. For a virtual visit, we can look at a straightforward question and answer session, a specific topic or book, with either a large audience or with individual classes. I am very flexible and always happy to discuss the details of school visits with teachers and librarians, on how to best serve the unique needs of your students. Some details on virtual visits can be found at http://www.simon-rose.com/virtual_visits.htm.

A synopsis of each of my novels can be found on my website at http://www.simon-rose.com/books.htm.
