   Welcome to the website of a writer, teacher, speaker and thinker.  I teach because I can't help it, write because I can't avoid it, and think because that's what people do--or should.  Here you'll find links and study guides for my books, writing tips and book reviews for kids and teachers, fun stuff for Shakespeare fans, and Schoolapalooza!--a guide for those who ever wondered how to schedule a school visit.  Don't forget to check my blog for the latest news.  Come in and look around!

NEWS!
