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.
