"A spectacular day! The children and faculty enjoyed every moment of your presentation. I heard nothing but wonderful comments from the children and teachers. Everyone loved you - from the smallest tot to the oldest faculty member."

Here I am, standing in front
of my high school, where
I set the novel, Scrawl.
I liked school, but I like
school visits a whole lot more.
I'd love to come speak at your school. It's natural: I've been a tour guide, a camp counselor, and a radio announcer. Plus, my wife's a reading teacher, and my kids are still young.
By the time I'm done, your students will not only laugh--
a lot--but they will also realize they're already writers.
"Scrawl was our choice for One School/One Book. When Mark came to speak, he was fast, funny... he had 1,300 students eating out of his hand."
-- Kennett Middle School, Landenberg, PA
"Our entire middle school studied Scrawl and went nuts for it.
The presentation was incredible and was nothing they'll ever forget."
-- Pioneer Middle School, Plymouth, MI
"The presentations were wonderful. I had teachers stopping by my office
to tell me how much they enjoyed your talk along with the all the great feedback from the kids."
-- Hudson Bend Middle School, Austin, TX
"The kids, families, teachers and administrators really enjoyed listening to you. You inspired many over your four days here. I believe that students went away less mystified by the whole writing process and now feel that they too can be an author! Thank you for sharing your craft with us!!!
