Ann is a motivational presenter for adults and children alike. Her years of experience as a teacher and a member of Toast Masters, her travels around the world, and her natural "gift of the gab" make her a favorite presenter with young and old. Her enthusiasm for books and story telling and gardening is infectious.

Ann's presentations can usually include some of the following:

  • The kids in the gardening book and the project
  • A discussion about life as an author
  • A discussion about life as a gardener
  • Where ideas come from
  • The creative processes of writing and gardening
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Show and tell items
  • Short readings from her latest books
  • Questions and answers

Style of the Presentation:

  • Duration of the talk: about one hour
  • Size: Any number up to 100 (flexible only if discussed ahead of time)
  • Can do two talks a day (can be flexible about doing three if discussed ahead of time)
  • Ann uses a sliding scale of $50.00 to $200.00 per presentation.  For exact fee enquiry, go to "Contact" and select "Author's Presentations."
