More About the Author

Hi! I'm the founder and lead consultant of Creative Resources & Research (CRR) in Woodland, CA. I have been successfully writing grants for over 15 years and for the last ten years I have also been helping others to find grant writing success. I have been a school teacher and school administrator, as well as a member of several non-profit boards of directors. I have written over 200 grants and my company has brought over $100 million to our clients in the last decade.

Even though I live in California, I work with clients (school districts, non-profit organizations, law enforcement agencies, and governmental agencies) around the country. I also provide lots of training, both in person and through our website (www.grantgoddess.com).

Here are a few of my favorite things: The San Francisco Giants (Go Giants!), reading, gardening, enjoying time with my family, and helping others learn that they can do many things they thought they couldn't.

"101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers" is written in short, easy to absorb chapters that make it easier to squeeze into a busy schedule like mine! Veronica Robbins has clearly established a wealth of expertise based on many years of experience and success as a professional grant writer and, like a true master (or in this case, goddess), she is able to provide readers with many thoughtful "tips" without ever being condescending or overwhelming. Many of the chapters on what might be considered dry topics are quite literary in the hands of such a skillful writer!

I like the practical advice, chapters that follow the sequence of a typical grant proposal, space to write my notes, and the attitude of the book. It all works well together to support the process of grant writing - for the novice, the experienced, and those in between. If the reader puts even a few of these tips into practice, a "good" grant application just might turn into a "great" one. I highly recommend this book.

"101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers" provides practical advice and helpful tips for both individuals who are starting their careers as grant writers as well as a refresher course for seasoned grant writers. The book is divided into chapters on grant writing basics, building a case for your program, goals and objectives, program design, budgeting and more. Each chapter is filled with nice "bite-sized" tips to help make the grant writing process smoother. The author does a great job of translating what is often dry, difficult to understand information into an easy to read and engaging format.

I especially recommend the book for those working with government and large foundation grants. The author is clearly an expert regarding these grants and her tips will save you many headaches! While the book is geared toward aspiring grant writers, I recommended it for intermediate and advanced grant writers as well. I have worked in the field for 15+ years and found it to be a very helpful resource that I have added to my reference shelf. I would have loved to have this book when I was first starting out and highly recommend it.

"101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers" is certainly a must-have resource for anyone intending to write a grant, from first-timers to experienced grant writers, both at government and private level. The information is well ordered, lucid, and never dry. The material is clear, beautifully written, and structured in such a way as to take the grant writer through a typical application step by step. I have written several grants and only wished this book had been available back then.

Ms Robbins, professional grant writer and the Director/CEO of Creative Resources & Research, is very encouraging throughout and gives concrete reasons as to why a first-timer can be successful even in the case of a hotly contested grant. Make no mistake, an experienced grant writer will find this book full of indispensable and valuable information. A busy grant writer will not have to wade through filler as everything in the book is pertinent and to the point.

I most certainly will never apply for another grant without referring minutely to "101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers." I was not surprised to find out that Ms Robbins' funding rate in some categories is 100%.

Grant writing can be daunting but Veronica Robbins' tips and insider secrets make the whole process easy, even enjoyable. Ms Robbins truly is a grant goddess! No grant writer can afford to be without this essential resource.

101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers is an excellent reference for anyone interested in government or private grants. It is written by a professional grant writer with years in the business, who also has a background in education. It is detailed, simple, easy to read, and has tips that will help anyone who is writing or considering writing grants to be successful. It is a time saver, and will help to fine tune your grant writing process.

If you purchase another book on this subject, I would suggest also purchasing 101 Tips, because each individual tip is delineated on a separate page, and the book and table of contents is so well organized, that it makes it very easy to find information that applies specifically to one's particular application.

You don't have to read a lot to get a lot out of this book. The application of just a couple of the suggestions here, can make the difference between winning and not winning a grant. So, in terms of time-effectiveness, this is an excellent choice as a primary reference on grant writing, or an additional reference.

I highly recommend 101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers.
