Melissa Hart offers school and library author visits that invite participants along on her journey to becoming a professional author, and inspire writers of all ages to start publishing now.
"Melissa Hart's presentation is fun and engaging for both children and adults. Her knowledge of raptors and owls is impressive and her enthusiasm is infectious. The addition of an owl pellet dissection to her book reading makes for an exciting, hands-on author event."
-Mary Gold, Author Event Coordinator, Grassroots Books
"Melissa is an enthusiastic and dynamic presenter. Her passion for owls and other birds of prey is contagious. My students were engaged throughout the presentation, asking questions about birds of prey and about being an author. Melissa shared motivational writing tips, and now my students are begging me to write."
- Debbie Knapp, Two Rivers Elementary School
