YALSa ya literature symposium and school visits in austin, texas
GHOSTLY EVIDENCE was released on October 1 by Millbrook, an imprint of Lerner. I wanted kids to know what evidence I had uncovered.
After four years of careful research, I had more information than I had book pages. So read the book for the basic evidence. Then check HERE
for a few stories not included in the book.
I'll also be adding more stories as I find them, true stories from eye witness reports. So check back often. And if you like EVP evidence, electronic voice phenomenon, be sure to listen to the audio clip posted below. It's from my research trip to the William Heath Davis House in San Diego, California.

Each year, I do a LOT of school visits and my calendar fills up quickly. I'd love to visit your school in the 2014/2015 school year, and my WONDERS OF WEIRD (2nd-8th) and WONDERS OF WEIRD DINOSAURS (pre-1st) presentations celebrate the magic of nonfiction, the importance of credible sources in research, and the wonders of our natural world, not to mention critical thinking skills -- very Common Core friendly.

If you'd like to know what other hosts think of my visits to there schools and festivals, click HERE. If you'd like to see my current calendar -- keeping in mind, it changes almost daily -- click HERE.
Thanks for your support and consideration. I really appreciate the opportunity to share what I do with YOU!

They will be published by Lerner's Darby Creek imprint in hardback, paperback and e-book, simultaneously. One will be about saving horses, one about saving a whale and one about saving stray dogs.
One year ago, I finished a ten episode video series for Microsoft called KELLY'S CURIOSITIES. Be sure to check them out! They were fun, and more are coming.
