About Me and Bootstrap Grammar


I retired in 2004 from College of the Rockies in Cranbrook, BC, where I taught English as a Second Language, specializing in grammar.

I continue to reside in Cranbrook and now spend my time volunteering with literacy programs.

I believe that anyone can learn to understand and avoid common errors in writing.

This book is dedicated to Sister Mary Frances Shafer, B.V.M., my teacher, and the memory of Lois M. Tracy, my mother.

The ‘boot’ graphic used on this website and in the PDFs was created by my granddaughter, Samantha.

The website was designed by my son, Benjamin, using Apple’s iWeb.
