Queen Bee to the Big Screen?

Because QUEEN BEE is written in such a visual manner, I’m delighted to share that the story is being considered as an animated film or TV series. Recently, I joined Bespoke Film Group in partnership to bring QUEEN BEE to the big screen (or the little screen) in a way that will delight and entertain in the visual arts as much as it does on the page. 

Because no one can accomplish a dream alone, I am incredibly thankful to my friend and manager, Jeremy Tick, founder of Bespoke Film Group, who is a true believer in big dreams and whimsical stories of all kinds.

We are both excited to see where this adventure will take us!

Events and Appearances

I love book events tailor all my talks to each audience, hoping to connect with them and empower them to see the world and each other in a new way.

Whether I’m working with children or adults – in-person or remotely -, talking about the subjects of my books or the writing process itself, I focus on delivering practical knowledge in basic terms that help others appreciate the wonder and power of story in every day life.

I love how I never know what to expect at an event, because the crowd is always different. Here are just a few places where I’ve appeared over the years. If you’d like to book me for an event, whether in-person or via Skype, just reach out to me via the contact page here on my website.
