Contact Me

I am, generally speaking, a nice person, but I tend towards being irritable and I am a bit of an introvert. This doesn’t mean that you can’t contact me, or that you shouldn’t contact me, but I recommend that you use caution, as though you were trying to interact with a large dog, if you’re not too sure the dog is friendly or not.


I can make myself available (via Zoom or Skype or what have you) for book club meetings in the evenings, or for library events. When the pandemic is over, I can be contacted for Young Author’s Day events at elementary schools, my work schedule permitting. I can talk about my process for authoring my picture book IF MY NAME WAS AMANDA. I work in Philadelphia, so it’s easier for me to do events in Philadelphia or Bucks County.

If you’re looking for a presentation about the Americans with Disabilities Act or assistive technology, I’m your huckleberry.

Signed Books

If you want me to sign a book, I am happy to do so as long as it isn’t a major inconvenience. The easiest way to do it is to buy a book, send it to me, and I’ll sign it and send it back; you’ll have to pay for postage both ways. Send me an email and I can walk you through it.


I generally use email (or e-mail, however you want to spell it, I try not to be picky) as a to-do list, with the goal of getting to inbox zero. So email is by far the best way to contact me. My address is blueduck (at) gmail (dot) com.


I am on Facebook at and you can follow me or whatever. I will respond to messages there but it’s not really my thing and I would rather answer an email.


I am on the Twitter at and will respond to direct messages if I get around to it.


I am also on LinkedIn at and am pretty good about replying to messages unless you are trying to sell me something, in which case, ha ha ha no.
