​   VIRTUAL AUTHOR VISITS

With current restrictions due to COVID-19, I've adapted my school presentations to work on Zoom. For the 2020-21 school year,
I'm available for Skype/Zoom visits (that meet Common Core Standards) for free for a limited time. Google Meets works as well.

From Idea to Printed Book

Length: 30-40 min. (all ages, meets Common Core for grades 3-6)


How does an author write a book, and how long does it all take? This virtual presentation covers the whole writing process in a nutshell, from idea to that finished novel you can buy in the story. Includes writer's tips and Q&A.


How To Plot a Mystery
Length: 30-40 min. (all ages, meets Common Core for grades 3-6)


Ever wonder how an author plots a mystery, how to pick the crime, the suspects, and how to plant to the clues...? I'll show you how I plot a novel, from idea and theme to rough outline. I'll discuss perspective, and reference middle-grade titles for example. includes time for Q&A.

  ​   WORKSHOPS AND SPEAKING 


For Educators
I regularly speak at librarian/educator conventions on practical ways to get reluctant kid readers to read, as well as how to hold a successful Skype author visit. I've hosted sessions at CCIRA and the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival. 

For Writers
Want to find out how to add suspense to your writing? How to write middle-grade fiction, or how to manage social media as an author? I've spoken on all these topics at conventions like Pikes Peak Writers Conference, SCBWI Southern Breeze Wiki Conference, and Savvy Authors online, among others.

WHAT LIBRARIANS AND TEACHERS HAVE TO SAY

"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 F.T. 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.”
