About the Author

About William Strunk Jr.:

William Strunk Jr. was a Cornell University English professor and author of The Elements of Style, which he wrote in 1917 and published privately for his English students the following year. He subsequently published an update to his book in 1935, collaborating with Edward Tenney, under the title The Elements and Practice of Composition.

Strunk began his career as an educator teaching mathematics for two years. In 1986, he earned a PhD from Cornell, where he taught English for the next forty-six years. He married Olivia Emilie Locke in 1900, and the couple had three children. In 1945, Strunk suffered a mental breakdown. He was committed to a psychiatric hospital in New York, where he died a year later. He was remembered by friends and family as "a kind man, a helpful teacher and colleague," who possessed "a boyish lack of envy and guile."


About Richard De A'Morelli:

Richard De A'Morelli, editor of the Classic Edition of Strunk's Elements of Style, published his first magazine article at age fourteen and signed a multi-book contract with a traditional publisher at eighteen. Since then, he has published 15 nonfiction books in the reference and self-help genres, three novels under pseudonyms, more than 500 by-lined newspaper and magazine articles; and two dozen writing and self-help/inspirational courses which he taught at Virtual University.

In addition to freelance writing, Richard has 30+ years of experience as a professional editor. He was a by-lined editorial staff member to the late Irving Wallace, one of the top-selling authors of modern times, and he has held management-level editorial posts with print and digital publishers. Richard currently resides on California's scenic Central Coast.

His recently published book, Elements of Style 2017: Professional Edition, builds upon Strunk's basic grammar primer, providing nearly 500 up-to-date grammar, punctuation, and style rules for modern writers, students, and anyone else who is called upon to write a grammar-perfect final draft. This essential writing handbook is available on Amazon.com in e-book and paperback editions at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MD0396I
