PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PDF guide is designed for children 8-12 years of age who are interested in writing their own mysteries. National Board Certified elementary school teacher and award-winning author Steve Reifman takes young writers step-by-step from the beginning of the writing process to the end and helps them craft stories that will keep readers guessing and on the edge of their seats. It doesn’t matter whether students are already seasoned mystery writers or brand new to the genre. This informative 56-page guide promises to take children’s writing skills to the next level.

In the easy-to-follow pages that comprise this guide, Reifman combines his teaching expertise with numerous examples from his book Chase Against Time to teach students about crimes, crime solvers, suspects, motives, clues, witnesses, alibis, red herrings, and all the other elements that make mysteries so much fun to read and write.

In addition to teaching the knowledge and skills required to help children write their own mysteries, Reifman focuses on higher purposes. He wants children to experience the same thrill of writing a mystery adventure that he had when he wrote Chase Against Time and its sequels. He also promotes valuable writing habits such as perseverance, pride, and paying attention to detail. Furthermore, he wants children to develop a passion for reading and writing, and he created the guide with these larger objectives in mind.
