It’s time to publish your first children’s book

About the School

We are now offering a school for authors this summer. We’ve developed an online course that takes students from concept to written script. The course includes the steps on getting their book written, illustrated, and published. Students will be given the space and time to learn and ask questions from industry professionals who have been carefully selected to guide you through the process of publishing your own book.


The Author School is now enrolling for the fall session. Reserve your spot below!

A Letter From the Professor

Hello Fellow Authors, 


My name is Dr. Marisa Christoffel. I am a graduate of National-Louis University with Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Middle School endorsements in language arts and social studies.  In May 2009, I earned a Masters of Reading from Northeastern Illinois University and received a Type 10 Special Teaching Certificate. In May 2012, I earned a second master’s degree in educational leadership from Aurora University and received my Type 75 General Administrative Certificate. In July 2021, I earned a Doctorate in Educational Leadership in Curriculum and Instruction from Aurora University.


As a professional educator and leader, I am enthusiastic in providing a positive learning experience which can meet the educational needs of all new authors. My mission has always been to help maximize learning through the improvement of instruction. My 19 years of teaching experience, different school leadership roles, and Doctorate in Curriculum and Instructionhave prepared me for continued success in the field of education. 


In addition, I have a nine-year-old son named Rocco, and a daughter, Vivianna, who will be six years old in November.  Recently, our family adopted a puppy who we named Lux. He is an Australian Cattle Dog and White Swiss Shephard mix. In the fall, I will begin an adjunct teaching position at Elmhurst University. I will have the opportunity to work with graduate students who are pursuing their master’s degree in Teacher Leadership. 


Feel free to call or email me at any time with questions or suggestions that would benefit your writing needs. I look forward to an exciting and productive Summer Author’sProgram!



Take care,



Dr. Marisa Christoffel, Ed.D.
