About the author

I am someone who is sick to near death with the dearth of basic writing and speaking skills in this country, as evidenced by the unedited work printed in books, newspapers, online, emails, magazines, as well as the poor grammar used by newscasters, spokespersons, teachers, politicians, and our children. This is not akin to a terrorist attack, but it offends me and makes me want to help the syntactically challenged.

I am a former English and drama teacher, a blog writer (A Pug’s Voice), editor, copywriter, author (Summer Pugs), and grammar Nazi. I know I can help, make the process fun, and introduce great improvements but in small, palatable doses.¬†
