The I Love to Write Book is a get-started guide to launch young writers on a journey to success . . . in the classroom and beyond.

The I Love to Write Book is an instructional and inspirational get-started guide for young writers, ages 8-14, to launch them on a journey to become successful, confident, and self-motivated writers. Featuring many practical tips, techniques, and exercises, the book is ideal for use in the classroom as well as individually. Published in support of national "I Love To Write Day," celebrated each year in mid-November in more than 20,000 schools and libraries. Includes activities, worksheets, and examples for developing ideas, observing the world, writing different types of pieces (such as news articles, book reviews, thank-you letters, how-tos, and more) and best practices for writing poetry and fiction. Also covered are the basics of revising work and submitting pieces for publication. While ideal for classroom use, the book focuses on writing for personal satisfaction, community impact, and publication.

The I Love to Write Book features a preface by John Riddle, founder of "I Love To Write Day."

“An ideal gift for the young potential author in one's life.” -- Midwest Book Review

“An extremely well-done guide. The book offers practical advice for writers. Heck, even an adult would benefit from this clear, straightforward guide.” -- BookLoons Reviews

"A most welcome source for educators and children – both inspiring and practical. Her enthusiasm for teaching young people to write will grab the attention of teachers, librarians, and kids themselves. Teachers need her straightfoward text. Librarians can recommend it whole-heartedly to the public. And kids will grow in their writing skills enthusiastically. Buy two copies! One for yourself, and one to share!" – Jan Irving, author of Stories NeverEnding (2004) and Stories, Time and Again (2005), and consultant in the field of children's literature and library services to children
