Chris Tebbetts is the author and co-author of many books for young readers. His new YA novel, ME, MYSELF, AND HIM will be out in July, 2019. Titles include the #1 New York Times bestselling MIDDLE SCHOOL series, as well as PUBLIC SCHOOL SUPERHERO, with James Patterson and illustrator Laura Park; the New York Times bestselling STRANDED series with Jeff Probst; and THE VIKING series. His work has received children’s choice awards in Oregon and Hawaii, as well a Sunshine State Young Readers Award nomination, and a nod on the New York Public Library’s annual list of Books For the Teen Age. He has also taught writing and creativity workshops for the Antioch Writers’ Workshop; the Highlights Foundation; and at schools around the country.
Chris offers individual (45-60 minute) author talks (“From First Idea to Finished Book”) and writing workshops for students in grades 4-8. Workshops run from basic (developing an idea from a visual prompt; writing the beginning of a story) to more advanced (digging more deeply on the creative side, looking at core material and developing a story idea from scratch, based on personal interests).
