30 Minute Program



I am excited to connect with young readers. Parents, teachers, and librarians are my community. Together we bring words to curious young minds. This 30-minute meet and greet can be custom to your readers. Two hardback books OR three ebooks of Curious World of Dandy-lion will be sent to your class or home. The author is open to discussions on the elements of the book, craft, or offering encouragement for young writers.

Curious World of Dandy-lion is not released until Nov 2, 2021. Please book class after that day to make sure students can have the book in hand.

About the Author

Lorraine Hawley lives in Gilbert, Arizona, and writes stories about tweens, teens, and fantastical worlds. She is the middle-grade author of CURIOUS WORLD OF DANDY-LION. The story about a remarkable sensitive girl who struggles to make friends in an impossible fifth-grade world filled with fantastical creatures only she can see. Set to release Nov 2, 2021 While Lorraine has attempted to write non-magical stories, her characters have refused to stay reality grounded, leaping off the pages to fly. So she gave up trying to be what she is not, accepting her role of a fantasy writer who hopes to share magic with the world. Lorraine enjoys connecting with others in literature and is enthusiastic about sharing writing tips. Drop by to say hello at for upcoming events, releases, and other musings of an untethered mind.
