Product Description

About the Author

Kay Sayce has more than 30 years' experience in book publishing, starting with the publication of her first book in 1978. A year later, after a stint as a publisher's reader, she joined Faber & Faber, London, as an editor. In 1982 she became senior education editor with Macmillans Zimbabwe, and was subsequently production editor of Encyclopaedia Australia (Collins Australia) and general editor of Birds of Southern Africa (Readers' Digest). In 1985 she founded Quest Publishing Ltd to commission and publish titles in fiction, education and politics, including a major co-publication with John Murray Publishers, London. In 1988, working from the UK, she became a publishing consultant for international aid agencies affiliated to the EU, World Bank and United Nations; the work included co-publishing with John Wiley Publishers. As a sideline in 2005 she launched a series of small-format business books, selling the rights to the leading title to a Far East publisher in 2008. She joined the Firsty Group in 2010. Kay also works under her married name, Kay Powell

An excellent little book, a great addition to any bookshelf especially anyone interested in the English language. Clears up a lot of common misconceptions.
