We LOVE Grammar Girl Mignon Fogarty. We follow her on Facebook, listen to her podcasts, read her books, check what’s new at her web site often, and her new book, “Grammar Girl’s 101 Misused Words You’ll Never Confuse Again,” will be a door prize our our annual writers’ conference in Springfield, Missouri, on July 23, 2011.
If you click on the image above (or on the link below), it will take you to a quick video of Grammar Girl thanking Ozarks Romance Authors members for our support. How cool is that?
How fabulous to see a peek into how a best-selling author is developing a love of reading in her three young children.
Emily Griffin, author of “Heart of the Matter,” “Love the One You’re With,” “Baby Proof,” “Something Blue,” and “Something Borrowed,” was recently profiled on People Magazine’s Celebrity Babies web site in a story titled, “Author Emily Griffin’s Top Summer Reading Picks — for the Whole Family.”
Griffin’s picks for summer reading with kids include “Harriet the Spy,” “Freckle Juice,” “The Little Princess,” “From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler,” “Fancy Nancy,” “Pinkalicious,” “The Story of Ferdinand,” “Where the Wild Things Are,” “Harold and the Purple Crayon,” “Madeline,” and “Emily’s Balloon.”
For the grown-ups, Griffin recommends reading “Falling Is Like This,” “Husband & Wife,” “Opposite of Me,” and “My Fair Lazy.”
Be on the lookout for Griffin’s “Something Borrowed” in movie theaters, starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, and John Krasinski from “The Office.”
