About the Author

Carolyn Howard-Johnson brings her experience as a publicist, journalist, marketer, editor, and retailer to the advice she gives in her HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers and the many classes she taught for nearly a decade as instructor for UCLA Extension's world-renown Writers' Program including a class on editing for self-publishers. The books in her HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers have won multiple awards. That series includes The Frugal Book Promoter and The Frugal Editor which won awards from USA Book News, Reader Views Literary Award, the marketing award from Next Generation Indie Books and others including the coveted Irwin award. How to Get Great Book Reviews Frugally and Ethically launched to rave reviews from Karen Cioffi, The Article Writing Doctor:

"I'm an author, content writer, and online marketing instructor. Reading Carolyn Howard-Johnson's The Frugal Editor has given me lots and lots of tips and reminders on how to write right, whether I'm writing fiction, nonfiction, blogging, or marketing. It's a writing tool I'll refer to over and over again."
Howard-Johnson is the recipient of the California Legislature's Woman of the Year in Arts and Entertainment Award, and her community's Character and Ethics award for her work promoting tolerance with her writing. She was also named to Pasadena Weekly's list of "Fourteen San Gabriel Valley women who make life happen" and was given her community's Diamond Award for Achievement in the Arts.

The author loves to travel. She has visited nearly 100 countries and has studied writing at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom; Herzen University in St. Petersburg, Russia; and Charles University, Prague. She has been in love with words and syntax since she took an advanced grammar class from Miss Jones (no kidding!) in high school and, curiously followed up with grammar from a professor who was of Russian royalty at USC and another in Heiroglyphics from a professor who was made a Duke for his service during the great flood of Florence in 1966.
