Hey y’all,

Don’t forget that you can access Aunt Ruth’s Common Grammar Problems for all (well, some) of your grammatical and word usage questions!

The list will soon be expanding, as well. I have made significant progress on the next Aunt Ruth book with another 40+ stories to whet your grammatical appetite. Look for it in Spring 2017!

Who Knew Grammar Could Be So Fun!

The title of this post is a direct quote from Apex Reviews, who both reviewed the book (I Laid an Egg on Aunt Ruth’s Head) and interviewed me recently.

The thing is that learning is not only a good thing to do, but it is fun too. Becoming proficient at grammar can lead to mind-expanding word games, such as puns and other word play. It exercises the brain.

Certainly, not all of us like or enjoy hearing a well turned pun or a carefully crafted metaphor. That’s okay.

I Laid an Egg on Aunt Ruth’s Head, featuring the adventures of Aunt Ruth as a way to humorously teach English grammar and usage, is available!  You can order it directly from me here (sales tax is included for NC residents). If you’re ordering outside the U.S., it’s probably easiest to do it through Authorhouse.
