More About the Author

Caroline Taggart worked in publishing as an editor of popular non-fiction for 30 years before being asked by Michael O'Mara Books to write I USED TO KNOW THAT, which became a Sunday Times bestseller. Following that she co-wrote MY GRAMMAR AND I (OR SHOULD THAT BE 'ME'?) As a result of these books and HER LADYSHIP'S GUIDE TO THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH, published by the National Trust, she has appeared frequently on BBC Breakfast and on national and regional radio, talking about language, grammar and Pythagoras's theorem. Her recent books include THE BOOK OF ENGLISH PLACE NAMES and THE BOOK OF LONDON PLACE NAMES, both published by Ebury Press, and A SLICE OF BRITAIN: AROUND THE COUNTRY BY CAKE from AA Publishing. The Sunday Times described this as 'engaging, greedy and droll'. As a result of this latest project she is visiting food and literary festivals around the country, talking about cake. Her website is carolinetaggart.co.uk and you can follow her on Twitter @citaggart.
