Author Visits


Before turning my attention full time to writing and publishing Time Traveler Tours Story App iTineraries and Time Traveler Tales interactive books, I was a career educator. 

I spent 20 years on several continents in classrooms ranging from pre-primary to university as a teacher, teacher-trainer, and mentor, helping to develop students' English language reading, speaking, listening, and creative writing skills.

Today, I visit schools, libraries, book stores, community centers, and writers' groups all over the world to present and/or facilitate hands-on workshops in YOUR area of interest.


"I was very excited when Madame told us that Sarah would be visiting. She was fantastic! She lived up to all of my expectations! Her enthusiasm hooked us on the presentation and her information was interesting and presented well."

Student at St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School, Alexandria, VA, USA, Sept, 2012
