Book an Author Visit

Inspire * Educate * Motivate * Encourage * Engage

Contact me to schedule an author visit for your school, library, church, or homeschool event.

One of my greatest joys as an author is connecting with readers through author visits at schools and community events.

As an author, teacher, and parent, I am able to connect with kids and adults in a special way as I share about my author journey. 

In my interactive presentations, I describe the process of creating my books and the lessons I have learned in the process. 

Students are inspired to persevere and pursue their goals and dreams.

Groups can range in ages from preschool to middle school, and may include Q&A, readings or games, depending on time and your requests. 


Minda was wonderful! She came to my ECFE classroom and read bits of her book and then did a fun movement activity with the kids. The parents and students enjoyed the book and the kids loved the activity!  - Olivia Timmons, Coordinator, Columbia Heights ECFE

Minda's presentation was both informative and engaging. By sharing her story, everyone was inspired to become authors and illustrators just like her! The audience enjoyed learning about language and animal facts in a fun and interactive way. I would highly recommend Minda's presentation. - Liza Shafto, Anoka County Librarian

Thank you so much for your wonderful presentation—it was full of authenticity, helpful information, and culture! - Sarah Kult, Minnesota Bankrupcy Court

Minda did an amazing job interacting with our families at Literacy Night. She shared her story about becoming an author and how she persevered even when it was tough. Our bilingual families enjoyed receiving a book and meeting a local author. Thank you Minda! - Katie Norton, Literacy Specialist, Mississippi Elementary

We loved having Minda out to visit our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders at Rum River! Her teaching background shows; she kept the kids engaged and really covered things we work on with our students. We especially appreciated how she talked about the writing process and its bumps, as kids hit those same bumps and need to know its okay to struggle. All in all, it was a great experience for all!" - Krista Fink, Teacher, Rum River Elementary
