School and Library Visits

I'd love to visit your school or library! I offer programs ranging from the mechanics of mysteries, real world inspiration for writing, my author journey (and finding yours!), and I am also happy to work with your curriculum and present on other relevant topics.

Pricing is as follows (subject to some exceptions): 

Local (within 40 miles of San Francisco):

- $350 for one presentation (1 hour) 

- $600 for a half day visit (max two 1 hour presentations
+ lunch with students or faculty (30 min))

- $1000 for a full day visit (max three 1 hour presentations
+ lunch with students or faculty (30 min))


There is no mileage charge for local visits. I am happy to do non-local visits, but please contact me for pricing.

I am a frequent presenter at conferences and other events. If you would like to book me for a speaking engagement, please contact me for more information. 

"My students were so inspired by Jill’s visit.  Teaching writing is such an important part of our curriculum, and having a conversation with a real life author was motivating and inspirational.  Jill answered questions, connected classroom lessons to real life experience, was engaging and accessible. I highly recommend having Jill come for a visit!"
