A Visit to King-Murphy Elementary School

I was invited to visit the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th-grade students at King-Murphy Elementary School on May 3 to talk about writing, publishing a book, and to tell them about Red Dragon’s Keep.



We talked about writing stories. The librarian, Ms. Juliana Reid, has been teaching the students about the important parts of a story: beginning, middle, and end. Conflict, climax,  crisis. I asked questions, and they knew the answers. Good job, Ms. Reid.



My daughter Anne, worked with me to put together a PowerPoint presentation for the beginning of my talk. She did a wonderful job. You can find it under MediaKit/Natli VanDerWerken on the website.




Dream the Dream. Write the Story.

It was a wonderful day, despite the May 3 all-day rain and the 5″ of snow at the school. Thank you, Ms. Juliana Reid, Mr. Rick Goben, and all of the teachers at King-Murphy Elementary School. Thanks especially to the students at the school. You were wonderful!
