You can always contact me by emailing I try to read everything that comes in, including school visit requests and questions from readers. I usually reply within 48 hours.

A couple of notes worth mentioning:

I don’t do a lot of paid school events. Most of my touring is done as part of a new series or book coming out and involves dozens of school visits in different areas around the country. You can usually find out where I’m going next by keeping an eye on the Patrick Carman Books Facebook page, which you can find right here.

The FAQ section of this site tries to answer questions young readers might have for book reports. It might be best to start there, and if you don’t find what you’re looking for, then email me at
