Publisher Description

Welcome to a word usage book with attitude. (Some say humor, too, but nearly everyone agrees on attitude.)


WORD WATCH is a compilation of columns written over several years for Update, the newsletter of the Washington (D.C.) Romance Writers, and Novel Ideas, the newsletter of the Virginia Romance Writers.


It stemmed from a conversation with a fellow author, who suggested – none too gently – that Word Watch quit griping about words being misused by writers and do something about it. 


So, here it is: An attempt to share a lifetime of word usage scrutiny and a journalistic career of picky editing.
