More About the Author

Kathi Wyldeck grew up in Sydney, Australia, won a Commonwealth Scholarship to the University of Sydney, studied Science and worked as a clinical and research technician at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, before becoming a full-time mum to raise her three sons.
After returning to work, she switched careers and became a general education tutor to children, teenagers and ESL adults. Kathi has taught a variety of subjects, but developed an interest in the teaching of grammar and writing skills.
Having been a Cub Scout Leader while her children were young, she also has a natural love of games - indoor, outdoor, active, quiet and educational - and this love has flowed through to writing three games books ("Family Games", "Games for Fun, Fitness and Learning" and "Grammar and Vocabulary Games for Children").
Her first two grammar books were published by Pascal Press in Australia ("All You Need to Know About Grammar" and "Everyday Spelling and Grammar") and these became best-sellers. Since then, further books on Comprehensive English ("English - A Comprehensive Course: Grades 3 to 5; 5 to 7; 7 to 9" and "English for Everyone - Books 1 and 2") and Writing Technique ("How to Write an Essay" and "How to Write - Writing Lessons for Middle School") have become popular on the international market.
Kathi has a love of reading, and writes as a hobby. Other interests over the years have included skydiving, hot-air ballooning, hiking, surfing, travelling, astronomy and photography. She thanks you for taking an interest in her work.

This book is a great mixture of writing lessons, model essays and topics for writing practice. Narrative, informative, persuasive and literary essays are all covered, plus information on how to present on-screen data, how to write a resume and how to write a job application letter. There are also notes on writers' techniques, as well as lessons and practice in prose and poetry analysis.

Format: Paperback
The tone of this short writing instruction manual is pleasant. That is the most that can be said for the simplistic writing exercises offered. The author urges us to create a visualized scene ("with lots of details!") that could be witnessed by someone sitting on a street in a New York taxi, then constructs a paragraph complete with an ant on a discarded hotdog and bun (could you see an ant on the ground from the back of a taxi?), then urges us to write from the point of view of the ant, then constructs that paragraph as well. I agree that shifting perspective is a valuable way to develop a piece of writing, but the examples are too elementary for anyone other than someone just starting out as a writer. The book is recommended for students from five through twelve, but it's too elementary for the average fifth grader, much less a high school student. Potentially useful to someone attempting to help adults who cannot read or write to achieve literacy.
