About the Author

Ralph Keyes is the author of sixteen books. His bestseller IS THERE LIFE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL? was made into a Broadway musical that is still produced in this country and abroad. CHANCING IT was a NEW YORK TIMES “Notable Book.” THE COURAGE TO WRITE – which John Jakes called “one of the two or three best books on writing I’ve ever read.” – has been in print for nearly two decades. Keyes’s most recent book is EUPHEMANIA: Our Love Affair With Euphemisms.

On television Keyes has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show, The Tonight Show, and 20/20. On NPR he’s been interviewed by Susan Stamberg, Robert Siegel, Noah Adams, Brooke Gladstone, Neal Conan, and Terry Gross (on Fresh Air, All Things Considered, On the Media, and Talk of the Nation). PEOPLE MAGAZINE has featured him twice. His own articles have been published by magazines ranging from GQ through GOOD HOUSEKEEPING to the HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW where an article he co-authored won the McKinsey Award for Best Article of the Year.
