Contact Nikki

Are you interested in having me visit your school, church, or organization? I am available for various types of author visits, including readings, signings, and presentations. I have 25 years of experience teaching children in pre-schools and elementary schools. I love hanging out with kids!

I also speak at Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) events, and I'm available for other writing conferences as well.

I'm currently booking events for 2017, featuring my book, The Little Christmas Elf. If you're interested in a visit that does not focus on the Christmas holiday, I often talk about the book making process, writing in general, and perseverance.

I provide manuscript critiques for developing children's book writers as well.

You can email me at nikkishannonsmith@gmail.com for more information about presentations and critiques
