My presentation is a behind-the-scenes look at publishing and the writing process — where do ideas come from, how do you develop characters, what kind of research goes into writing a dragon fantasy -- with lots of time for questions from the students.

TUI FUELS CONSERVATION AT GATES

It was a really fun school to visit—the librarian, Sheila Magovern, is SO great and friendly and welcoming and prepared and lovely to spend time with. There were drawings of dragons by the kids all over the doors to the library, and she'd clearly gotten them all excited about the visit and voting—when I announced the winning charity, there was a lot of cheering. The winning organization was the Wildlife Conservation Society, and I'll be donating $2000 to them. And the kids were just awesome—wonderful listeners with tons of great questions and enthusiasm. Yay for the Gates School! :)
