Children's Author

Contact Nikki

Are you interested in having me visit your school, church, or organization? I am available for various types of author visits, including readings, signings, and presentations. I have over 25 years of experience teaching children in pre-schools and elementary schools. I love hanging out with kids!

I also speak at Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) events, and I'm available for other writing conferences as well.

NOW BOOKING 2019-2020 EVENTS! Presentations can revolve around my titles, or around writing in general. Please see the "Books" link for more information about my books.

I provide manuscript critiques for developing children's book writers as well. Please note: due to my writing schedule, I'm not offering manuscript critiques at this time.

You can email me at nikkishannonsmith@gmail.com for more information about presentations and critiques
