Author Visits

I love making connections with children! Seeing their eyes light up when they share their stories and creations reminds me how delightful it is to share our stories with the world.

For more information on author visits at your school, library, or conference, please get in touch via my contact page, or reach out to Andrea Cruise, Author Appearance Coordinator for the Penguin Young Readers Group for school visits.


More details coming soon!


“I had the great pleasure of hosting Mrs. Tillotson to my classroom as a guest writer. She inspired my third graders with photos of her writing space which was an invitational to them to create their own writing fort where they could grow new ideas. She connected with them and shared how non-fiction has been important in her life since fourth grade. Mrs. Tillotson read and shared images of extreme creatures that use tools to help them stay alive. Her writing is bright, positive and funny too! It captures the imagination in us all. Her work is so valuable and kids and adults everywhere need to read her words.” —3rd Grade Teacher, Ms. Laura Doolittle

“I wanted to send a quick note … to thank Mrs. Tillotson for taking the time to talk to the class today. [Student Name] was so excited and just abuzz afterwards. I think experiences like this really make a difference as we’re trying to keep [Student Name] engaged and excited about school. So thank you very much!” —Parent
