Nancy reading to students at Carnarvon School.

Nancy reading to students at Carnarvon School.


Nancy loves traveling to schools around the Lower Mainland and all of BC to share her love of storytelling, reading and writing.

A one hour visit includes:

  • the reading of two books

  • a discussion of Nancy's writing methods

  • the publishing process

  • her sources of inspiration

  • true stories behind some of her books

Of course there will always be time for questions and comments from the audience.



Here is a note from a librarian who hosted Nancy at her branch:

The children listened enthusiastically to your reading of your new book. You have an intimate, quiet style which perfectly suits your lyrical, poetic stories. You gave the children a complete and rare literary experience and you filled out their understanding of this story by speaking about the books “dedication” and the process by which you get your ideas. You personalized their experience by telling them anecdotes about your own children who inspired the storybooks. Meeting an author is a special event in a child's life, you have given these children something they will remember always.
