Today I had my first author talk at a school! It went fantastically (phantastically?) – the kids had such great questions and all groups (I met with K-8!) were attentive listeners. The staff were all fun and easy to work with and so helpful with getting me set up for the day.
Some of the most common questions asked:
- How do you have time to write when you also teach and have kids?
- What advice do you have for people who want to be authors?
- How old are you? (My answer: older than you!)
I also had quite a few budding authors in the audience! Many kids said they had written stories or books. The most random thing was one of the students comparing me to T. Swift – haha!
All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and one I hope to repeat at more schools in the future. (Hey, friends, if you’re reading this and work at a school – let me know if you’d like to set up an author visit!)
