About the author (2001)

Susan Fawcett started teaching English at Bronx Community College right after she finished college. The idea for the books grew out of her frustration that adults needed remediation but the only material available had a tone more appropriate for middle school students. She occasionally teaches a class in Miami, where she lives in the winter and writes full time.

Alvin Sandberg is one of the authors of "Grassroots, " Seventh Edition, "Evergreen, " Sixth Edition, and "Business English: Skills for Success." Before retiring, he taught developmental writing for many years at Bronx Community College.
