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.

Lambasting bureaucracy and jargon, this satirical book is a significantly revised version of An Alien in a Madhouse. Like its predecessor, it pokes fun at officialdom, officialese, political correctness gone mad and the vagaries of office life. It also ponders some of the usage booby-traps strewn across English, detonating a few of them with irreverent jocularity. This is why the book can also be seen as a reference source addressing several troublesome points of grammar, punctuation and spelling – albeit humorously.
