Blog Bites

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.

  4. Same here! There really is life and death in the power of the tongue… or the pen… or the keyboard!

  5. Hi Stephanie.

    I am now Following ALL FOUR of your Blogs. :).

    Best Wishes. 🙂
    Kev. 🙂

  6. Great! I hope you enjoy the variety! Thanks for that quadruple vote of confidence!

  7. yo yo sup….. anywho, you asked me to post the “Hi Andy! I love your sense … I am about to post it on my blog for you. Gasp (deep breaths here), hard to believe your not following the fun!

  8. Thanks! Likewise. 🙂

  9. That is a busy life you lead. I’m currently doing a TEFL, hopefully one day I’ll spend a year or two teaching English somewhere in Asia or elsewhere… I admire teachers. My English teacher in high school plays a big role in the choice I made to come study in England.

  10. Hi Ellie! Thank you for stopping by, and following me!
    I did the TEFLA course back in 1994, and taught professionally for several years, including dozent-level at a business college; it’s very fulfilling, but like any teaching job you put a lot more hours in than you actually get paid for! The past few years I’ve mainly focused on writing, and teaching singing, but still tutor the occasional student, though most of my “teaching” of English is now online.
    I look forward to looking into your site – I am also a notebook addict; I have dozens of blank notebooks of every shape and size (mostly A5 & A6) just waiting for the perfect use to come along. 🙂

  11. WOW!! your last paragraph is truly impressive. I hope we can keep in touch, follow back please 🙂

  12. Thank you! And I’m glad to reciprocate – I do a lot of crafting in my spare time (or when I shift gears from writing to winding down 🙂 ); crocheting is my main thing, but I do just about every kind of craft!

  13. HI, Stephanie. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking a post. As an old retired guy, I am amazed at all you are undertaking. Looking forward to visiting your work. I hope you are getting enough sleep.

  14. Sleep? Oh, right… that… 😉 I am actually blessed by the fact that I only need ~5 hours a night! Enjoy snooping around my blogs, opening all the cupboards, and making yourself at home! You’ll just need to bring your own drinks…

  15. So glad meet you! Looking forward to reading more of your blog(s).

  16. Thank you! And welcome! Have a look around, and enjoy! 🙂
