“I watched Lorna give ten presentations to 560 participants. Through her humour and lively manner, often acting out the instances she described, she kept the children engaged and entertained. Lorna’s presentations, however, are more than just entertaining – they are educational as well. With the clever use of well thought out questions and audience participation, Lorna was able to provide the children with numerous learning opportunities – whether about writing, current issues or the importance of following their dreams.”
“Lorna’s positive energy and love of reading and writing was infectious. She related exceptionally well with all ages. Lorna infused personal experiences that inspire her craft and introduced us to her many other titles. She emphasized the importance of reading and writing and the places books can take us. Her range of topics is appealing and appropriate for both genders.”
