Events


As you can see from my events' line-up, I love connecting with book clubs and speaking at libraries. If you'd like to suggest THE UNLOCKED PATH for your book club or have your library host me for a presentation, you can download information to share with them. I'm available in-person, pending date and location, or over Zoom.
