Newbery Medalist Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's one hundred and more books are true to life, funny, and, most of all, well written -- you'd think that she doesn't have to work at writing at all. But that's not true. How I Came to Be a Writer is the story of one author's beginnings -- successes and failures, reviews and rejection slips -- things that mark the stages of a writer's life. Illustrated with photographs, and including samples of her earlier writing, this book will show you the inner workings of the writing process, from the spark of an idea to a book's actual publication. This classic writer's memoir has been revised and updated to include material on the writing of the Newbery-winning Shiloh and its two sequels.

Author Phyllis Reynolds Naylor was born in Anderson, Indiana, and she spent her teenage years in Joliet, Illinois with some occasional trips to Iowa. Two of her series are set in Indiana: the witch books and the Bessledorf mystery series. Some of the titles in those series include "Witch's Sister," "The Witch Herself," "The Witch Returns," "The Mad Gasser of Bessledorf Street," "The Bodies in the Bessledorf Hotel," and "Bernie and the Bessledorf Ghost." Naylor's book "Shiloh" won the Newberry Award and the 1995 Young Hoosier Book Award.
