Ellen Sue Feld got interested in grammar out of desperation way back in 1980, when she started teaching developmental writing at a community college. She was not prepared! (She wrote poetry and fiction while earning her master's in writing at the Johns Hopkins University.) She started studying the student textbook, learned the language of grammar, and brought it into play in the classroom. Through the decades, Ellen has worn a variety of editorial hats, including newspaper reporter and copy chief, personal essayist, website reviewer, and developmental editor. She is the creator/instructor of online grammar refresher courses that have served more than 45,000 learners and is the author of the children’s storybook Paragon and Jubilee. As a dedicated vegan, Ellen uses no animal products in the many food-based grammar examples you'll find in this book.
