Four Handy-Dandy Books

These are some of my favorite books I use as a writer.

1) The Random House Rhyming Dictionary (pocket size):
Because I like to write fun poetry for my blog and a particular children’s magazine, this little book comes in mighty handy when I hit a mental road block.  Speaking of rhyming, visit    Very helpful when you’re looking for that perfect rhyme word.

2) Writing for Children & Teenagers by Lee Wyndham:
I’ve read this book many times yet I continue to turn to my folded  pages and highlighted paragraphs. Lee’s book is packed with information on writing for the young child to the teenager. She taught for 13 years at New York University. Boy, I wish I’d been in the front row!

3) The Everything Grammar and Style Book 2nd Edition by Susan Thurman: This book is user friendly which is something I appreciate when it comes to grammar! I should use this book more often. (o;

4) How to Write Attention-Grabbing Query & Cover Letters by John Wood:  You’ve GOT to read  page 150 (The Ideal Cover Letter). Need I say more?
