Win a Hand-Crafted Liberty Oak Pen!

Liberty Oak Pen hand-crafted by Steve Hooley

What is a Liberty Oak Pen? Glad you asked.

Trees have growth rings that show how long the tree has lived. The wood in this beautiful pen is from a white oak tree that was growing in 1776 at the time of the Revolutionary War.

My friend Steve Hooley is a gifted woodworker who salvaged lumber from the 1876 Quincy, Ohio school building when it was torn down. The growth rings in the floor beams show the tree was 100 years old at the time they were milled. That means this tree was growing in 1776!

Steve turns this historic wood into one-of-a-kind pens like the one shown in the photo. Its beauty and high quality make writing a pleasure.

Steve is also the author of the imaginative Mad River Magic series of fantasy books for young readers. To spread the word about his books, Steve is holding a free drawing to win this stunning pen. 

To enter the drawing, all you have to do is email Steve at, and put “Pen drawing” in the subject line. US residents only, please.

Deadline is January 31, 2023. 

This is your chance to write with a piece of history!

Good luck!
