School Visits

Janet does lots of school visits, giving group presentations for elementary, middle, and high school students. Most often, Janet comes to schools where the students have read at least one of her novels. She usually does a PowerPoint presentation that covers how she became a writer, the different novels she’s written, how she comes up with stories and characters, her writing process, and how she came to love research and revising – really! Each session is followed by a lively question and answer session where students can ask not only about her books, but about how she can help them become better writers. Most schools require two presentations, usually in the morning.

Janet has been doing school visits for fifteen years; you can email her at for details.
