Welcome! This blog is all about writing and the research that compels and inspires me. I’ll “undust” facets of historical events, people, and inventions; I’ll take you on virtual tours, or dive into how things are made; I’ll tell you about the novels I’m working on, and the nitty gritty of grammar, linguistics, syntax and all those little nuts & bolts of writing the English language. As an English teacher for adults, I’m not only aware of some of the pitfalls of language, but of the tendency for the nuts & bolts to get rusty, come loose, or get lost altogether.
In the real world I don’t have time for a job outside of the home! I’m a writer, author, editor, translator (German to English), vocal coach for bands, singing teacher, English teacher for adults, household manager, and all-rounder! I’ve been married to my best friend since 1993, and live in a small Swiss town near Zürich with my husband and our three feline flatmates.
