“When you have a book published it doesn’t take long before someone, somewhere will ask you to speak. Being a bit shy it took me a while to warm up to that idea, but once I figured out that it wasn’t really much different than talking to a lot of friends at once it became one of my favorite things to do.”
Here are a few things Robin enjoys talking about:
- The “Ooooh! Aaaaah!” Model for Fiction
- Play! How to Keep Your Child Heart
- Creative Problem Solving Techniques and Writing
- Writing Against the Wind
- Art and the Broken Heart
“I love to be in the classroom. I taught Sign Language at Furman University, have taught Art, Character Education and third grade. I also served as an educational interpreter in the public schools.
I believe the best learning comes by doing, and will come to your classroom ready to rumble.”
Or, if you are located far away, Robin is happy to Skype with your class.
