$300


Ever wondered what your favorite author was like as a kid, and how he or she became an author? Here's your chance to find out. When Bruce Hale was young, nobody would've said, "That kid's going to be an author." Why? Because he hated books. But due to a lucky accident and some early inspirations, he set his feet on the path to publishing, ending up with over 60 books (so far) in print! Session includes embarrassing (for author) photos, storytelling, bad jokes, occasional writing tips, and ideas on how your children can pursue their own dreams.
