More About the Author
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.

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.
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.
Caroline Reeder, Author
Careers in Grant Writing (Volume 1)
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.
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.
