Presentations + Readings

Sometimes I talk in front of a bunch of other people, and the crazy part is, they seem to listen when I do that.

Understanding Teen Dating Relationships

  • The Dynamics of Domestic Abuse: Tactics, Myths & Social Norms
  • Decide, Don’t Slide: Understanding the Difference between Healthy, Unhealthy and Abusive Relationships

Babysitting Your Book: Notes from a Nonfiction Ghostwriter and Kinship Caregiver

2022. Comments from my presentation facilitator, Sharman Apt Russell:

“Andie had a lively and fun presence, using gestures and enthusiastic body language to convey her interest and passion in her subject. She handled a problem with technology–midway through her presentation–with grace and ease. Her friendly and engaged manner was one of her greatest strengths. […] Her handout complemented her presentation very well, with some good specific tips and specific apps that I think many writers will appreciate.”
