Do you need a speaker for your meeting, retreat, or conference?

I have three hour(ish)-long workshops I can present to RWA chapters or other writing groups for monthly meetings, writers retreats, or conference workshops:

Writing Historical Fiction delves into the issues writers should consider when writing historical fiction, how to find answers to many of the questions you’ll ask yourself as you plot and write, and how to avoid tumbling into the research rabbit hole.

Wondering how to research the old-fashioned way, without the Internet? Research Beyond .Com serves as a guidepost to valuable offline resources we often overlook.

How to Speak Legalese: Understanding Literary Contracts explores the basics of author-agent agreements and publishing contracts from the writer’s perspective.

And the more esoteric Immigration to America in the Colonial Period offers a look at immigration policies in Colonial America–a fabulous resource for writers interested in that time period.

I am working on other historical topics as well, so if you’re interested in something in particular, just ask! For more information or to schedule a presentation, email me at
