I am an experienced picture book editor and qualified Montessori teacher so I bring to author visits a passion for books and experience of working with children.
I love art and books, so my talks and workshops involve lots of storytelling and making things. Interactive and hands-on – and even a bit messy! – my aim is to get kids fired up about stories, using their imaginations and believing in themselves as future inventors and creators.
"We have many budding writers among our students and Natascha's obvious passion for the research and creative writing was really wonderful."
"She carefully included children and adults of all different ages, and very creatively used props and visuals to orient the children to the past."
I love to visit kindergartens, schools, libraries, bookstores and festivals. Contact me to book an in-person or FREE SKYPE virtual visit. (Find out more by clicking the link below).
"Natascha's interesting, age-appropriate presentation, accompanying power point, and question-and-answer time, Natascha took students through Edward Binney's fascinating invention process--complete with challenges and even initial failures--and added depth to the story by helping kids understand the historical context of both Binney and his invention."

Skype sessions are a great way for me to share the fascinating story of the invention of Crayola crayons and my author journey with school children and answer some of their questions without me having to spend any time traveling. Plus they have a lot less impact on my carbon footprint than a regular school trip. School Skype sessions are completely FREE!
