About the Author

Ron Simpson has an MA (Oxon) in English Language and Literature and a PGCE from Birmingham University. He taught English for 30 years and, during his teaching career, was Head of English at King's School and Pontefract and Head of Sixth Form at Campsmount School, Doncaster. He has worked with JMB, now NEAB, as Review Panel Member (English GCE/GCSE) and is currently Moderator for the GCSE English/English Literature, GCSE Oral English and Certificate of Achievement English. He has also worked as a reviewer and News/Features Editor of the bi-monthly Jazz Rag magazine almost from its inception.


"Most grammar books either lose themselves in prescriptive (or worse, proscriptive) admonitions, which quickly become outdated or 'quaint', or are so badly laid out and presented that they are consulted only by the truly desperate. Ron Simpson's book, on the other hand, manages to be entertaining, informative and well-structured." * - Customer Review *
