My current author-visit programs are geared for preschool through grade 5 and intended for classroom and library settings.

Some program selections are listed below; but customized programs may be available upon request.

  • Guest reader/Author Q &A
  • From Flower Pot to Plot; Planting Seeds of Friendship in Stories for Kids
  • Where Do Stories Come From? (Preschool or Elementary versions are available)
  • Crafting Your Story; a creative introduction to the five basic story elements with opportunities for a more in-depth look into any of the elements.

My goal is to connect with young readers and aspiring young writers in a way that is meaningful to them, while adhering to accepted educational standards for each grade level.

Program length will be tailored to grade level and teacher/librarian requests.

Please contact me two months in advance of the desired visit to discuss your program wish list, booking information and fees.

“D.J. Brandon (Ms. Deb) did a wonderful job teaching my preschool class all about authors and how they come up with topics for their stories. Her presentation was hands-on and kept my students engaged and entertained the whole time.”
