To save time, for school visits, my wife, children's author Cynthia Leitich Smith and I charge $3000 per day for up to three sessions. We also do cyber visits. We travel fairly regularly to the following destinations: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Oklahoma (the whole state), Kansas City/Lawrence, Des Moines, Chicago, and the San Francisco bay area. Folks in these areas are invited to inquire about coordinating events with pre-scheduled trips.
