About the author

Wild pronounsGwynneth Heaton has a BA in modern history and a BLS and MLS in library science from the University of Toronto. She has had a varied career in the USA and Canada including the following libraries:  the library of the Canadian Institute for International Affairs in Toronto; the Santa Clara County Public Library in San Jose, California; the library in the Graduate School of Business, at Stanford University; the library of the State University of New York at Binghamton; and the libraries at the University of Toronto, where she directed the Science and Medicine Library, and served as Campus Libraries Coordinator and as Director of Library Outreach.  She obtained her solid grounding in English grammar from the Bishop Strachan School.  She has published many articles in the field of librarianship, and some poetry. She illustrated her book and has had many paintings in exhibitions in Toronto.

With her book, she hopes that her readers will learn how to use pronouns correctly.  She calls herself the “passionate pronoun person” because pronouns are among the most misused parts of speech and she feels very strongly that those who speak and write correctly are more likely to make a better impression on potential employers (or mothers-in-law!) and to succeed in their work and in their life generally.
