Will you give a speech/ presentation at my event? 

For speeches and speaking engagements, please drop a line to Rob Firing at Transatlantic Agency (

How can I invite you to my literary festival?

I love festivals and all things bookish. Please get in touch with one of my publicists. They keep my schedule organized and maximize my time when I'm away from home. I've been replying to requests that come directly to me but to be honest, it is becoming too difficult to juggle. So please contact Erin (M&S) or Charlotte (Doubleday).

Will you come to my book club?

If your book club is in St. John's and I'm available, then yes, I'd be delighted to attend. Take the first half of the meeting to speak candidly about the book and then I'll drop in for a Q&A in the second half.

When are you coming to my town?

I keep my events page updated with readings and public appearances.

Can I hire you to review/ help with my manuscript?

Not this year, I'm afraid. 2018 is BONKERS.
