Lynne Truss is a writer and journalist who started out as a
literary editor with a blue pencil and then got sidetracked. The
author of three novels and numerous radio comedy dramas, she spent
six years as the television critic of The Times of London,
followed by four (rather peculiar) years as a sports columnist for
the same newspaper. She won Columnist of the Year for her work for
Women's Journal. Lynne Truss also hosted Cutting a Dash, a popular
BBC Radio 4 series about punctuation. She now reviews books for the
Sunday Times of London and is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4. She
lives in Brighton, England.
BONNIE TIMMONS is best known for inspiring and creating images for the television show Caroline in the City and illustrating numerous national ad campaigns.
