Back to School, Mallory

August 18th, 2017

Hi Everybody,

It’s hard to believe summer is coming to an end and that lots of you are already in back to school mode!  If you’re looking for some fun reading to get you into the spirit of things, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Back to School, Mallory and read all about Mallory starting a new school year at a new school and  . . . taking her mother with her as the new music teacher at Fern Falls Elementary. There’s never a dull moment in Mallory’s life!

I hope this is an awesome school year for all of you!

Happy reading and talk to you soon!

Author School Visits

July 31st, 2017

Hi Everybody,

One of the best parts about being an author is that I get to visit a lot of schools. I love meeting kids from all over the country and talking about the characters I’ve created and what it’s like to be an author. I also love conducting writing workshops.

If your school might is interested in having me, here is some important information:

Grades: K – 8
Length of presentation: 40 to 60 minutes depending on your school’s schedule and the age group of the audience.
Audience Size: Laurie’s presentations can be tailored to accommodate small, medium-sized or large groups, including classrooms of 25-40 students, groups of several grades/several hundred children, and entire schools with groups as large as 900.

I hope one day I’ll get to come to your school!

Hi Everybody,

Hope you’re having a lot of fun this summer at the beach, the pool, the library, camp, or just hanging out with your friends or family! Summer means different things for everyone. When I was growing up, one of the things I used to do in the summer was babysit. Of course I wanted Mallory to do it too, and she does in Mallory McDonald, Super Sitter.  I hope you’ll read about her adventures taking care of the twin boys who move onto Wish Pond Road. I had so much fun writing about what happens to her. Trust me, there’s never a dull moment!

Happy reading (and maybe babysitting too!)  

Talk to you soon!
