Resources for Caretakers

I've created lesson plans to make it easy to use Livi & Grace in the classroom across a range of grade levels. If you'd like to share the book with your kids to help foster a more empathetic and caring group please fill out the form at the link below with some basic details so I can send you the best material for your unique situation.


School Visits

Sharing my book and my message directly with kids fills my heart every time! I am available for readings and educational programming at schools and libraries throughout Texas. Whether you're in my neck of the woods or not, please let me know if you're interested in booking an appearance.

Charitable Partnerships

I am a proud advocate for several organizations that benefit children in a variety of ways, and I have created a program that offers you a chance to help me make the biggest impact possible.

CASA exists to promote and protect the best interest of children who have been abused or neglected, by training volunteers to advocate for them in courts, in schools and in our community to help them find safe, permanent and loving homes.  I have been an advocate with CASA of Travis County since 2003 with the goal to provide for every child in need a trained advocate, a safe home and a promising future.

I’ve become a part of Literacy First in Austin and would like to help fulfill some of their existing need for book donations.  Literacy First, for the past twenty-five years, has been successfully closing the literacy gap in our underprivileged schools by providing daily, one-on-one tutoring to kindergarten through second grade students who are reading at below grade level.  I am honored that they have selected Livi & Grace to be part of their program.

If you, or your organization, has interest in making an in-kind donation of Livi & Grace to either cause please send me a message and I’d be overjoyed to help.
