Beyond the Misty Fells

By Skiddaw Writers - including Anna Nolan

Action & adventure, Comedy & satire | Paperback, eBook


This book, contributed to by Anna Nolan, transports readers across continents and over time. In a kaleidoscope of travels and personal journeys, it explores landscapes, memories, adventures and discoveries. In a few unexpected twists, it even ponders some of the usage booby-traps strewn across the English language, detonating a few of them with irreverent jocularity. It is, by turns, quirky, serious, reflective, heart-warming and very funny, with Anna Nolan’s satirical sketches – largely about the English language – enlivening the book with their humour.



I am one of the authors of this book, to which I have contributed humorous sketches – largely about the English language. I am a linguist/ grammarian, educationalist, writer and editor with a penchant for irreverent satire. My two burning passions are English grammar and mountains, both of which I indulge with utter abandon. After working as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language and broadcaster at the BBC, I spent many years running public examinations, developing national qualifications, carrying out linguistic research, copy-editing and penning articles and books on English grammar, punctuation and usage. I also produce a blog, Flaming English, in which I write on the subject, alternating between jocularity and sobriety. My website/ blog can be found at: http://flaming-english.com/.
