News from the Nonfiction Ninjas

 Hello Nonfiction Writers!

We are busy working on the 2023 Nonfiction Fest and this year we'll be dedicating it to the memory of our good friend, Pat Miller, who had the vision for this event. We Ninja, know that Pat wanted the Fest to carry on because she gave us specific instructions to do so!! And so we will!

We are making a few changes that will make it easier and hopefully more fun. One of those changes is that we are moving our Ninja Blog to this site. You will be seeing posts from the Ninjas leading up to and after the NF Fest. This way we hope to encourage your writing journey all year long. 

We will also be announcing a new event for Fall 2023. It's going to be an exciting challenge!! Stay tuned for details.

But first, we would like to invite everyone who has benefitted from Pat Miller's kindness and generosity to participate in a book donation in her honor. We would like to encourage you to donate a nonfiction book of your choice to a school or library in your community. Then post a comment on our blog or a picture on the NF Facebook site.

Pat was devoted to children's literacy and worked as a school librarian for many years. This would be a wonderful way to celebrate Pat and her work with both readers and writers.

I'm going first -  I'm donating a classroom set of my Top Secret Files Series to my local elementary school here in St. Charles, Missouri.

Now it's your turn! 
Help us celebrate Pat Miller and Nonfiction!


  1. What a wonderful way to honor an amazing lady. Thanks ninjas!

  2. Such a special way to celebrate Pat Miller's life by donating nonfiction picture books to a school or library. I continue to think about family and friends who loved and cared for Pat.

    I look forward to the new NF Fest in the Fall of 2023.
