Speaking Engagements

I love to speak about mental health to groups of all ages and sizes. Shoot me an email to arrange a speaking engagement for your group. I usually don't charge and am willing to travel!

The least expensive way to order books is to send me an email. All orders come to me--Andy, and I never share your information with anyone else.   

You can order through Amazon, but they will just send me an email and I will take the books to the post office and mail them. I'd rather not charge you extra to pay Amazon's fees.
