Carolyn Howard-Johnsonabout this book: Carolyn Howard-Johnson picks the trip-you-up words that her clients struggle with and puts them in a quick reference guide light enough and small enough to be used as a quickie gift that the recipient can tuck into a glove compartment or purse to keep their homonym skills fresh and explains why following grammar rules assiduously isn't always the best choice for writers.
Now in its second edition, The Great Little Last-Minute Editing Tips for Writers booklet is part of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers now published by Modern History Press.

She feels privileged that she was able to share her wisdom and experience for nearly a decade with students of UCLA's renowned Writers' Program. She was graduated from USC (University of Southern California) and has studied at a variety of colleges in the US and overseas including Trinity College, Cambridge, UK; Herzen University, St. Peterburg, RU; and Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic.
