I'm available for virtual or in-person visits for the
 2022-23 school year. I live in Colorado and can travel to the Denver metro-Colorado Springs-Pueblo area. 

Virtual visit: book talk plus Q&A (+/- 30 minutes) - FREE for a limited time. I owe a great deal of gratitude to educators and librarians who have made my book sales and recognition soar, and I want to give back. Just email me a picture of one of my books in your (school) library, and I'll do a free author visit. (email:

In-person visit, up to three talks plus Q&A - $400

Alternative: buy 30 or more paperback copies, or 15 or more hardcover copies of my books and the visit is free. Putting books in the hands of kids is most important to me.

Contact me for reduced fee visits. I'm flexible and want to make school visits accessible for everyone, regardless of budget!

"Our patrons were so pleased with the virtual writing workshop Fleur taught for Arapahoe Libraries. It was interactive, engaging, and dug into the elements of writing mysteries so that participants left with tools for writing their own."

-Kara Seal,  Senior Events Specialist, Teens and Tweens, Arapahoe Libraries, CO

I would highly recommend Fleur Bradley for a school visit. Her presentations can be tailored to your specific needs and tie in nicely to the grade level audience. (..) A great experience for students and staff.”
