About the Author

Judith Nadell was Associate Professor of Communication at Rowan University (New Jersey). During her eighteen years at Rowan, she coordinated the introductory course in the Freshman Writing Sequence and served as Director of the Writing Lab. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Tufts University, she received a doctorate from Columbia University. With a special commitment to grassroots literacy, she founded and designed an adult literacy program, a children’s reading enrichment initiative, and a family literacy project. She is the author of Becoming a Read-Aloud Coach and Vocabulary Basics (both Townsend Press); the creator of The King School Series (also Townsend Press); the co-author of Doing Well in College (McGraw-Hill), The Longman Reader and The Longman Writer. The recipient of a New Jersey award for excellence in teaching writing, Judith Nadell lives with her co-author husband, John Langan, near Philadelphia.

John Langan taught reading and writing at Atlantic Cape Community College near Atlantic City, New Jersey, for more than twenty-five years. Before teaching, he graduated magna cum laude from LaSalle University and earned advanced degrees in writing at Rutgers University and in reading at Rowan University. Coauthor of The Longman Reader and author of a series of college textbooks on both reading and writing, he has published widely with McGraw-Hill Book Company, Townsend Press, and Longman. Through Townsend Press, his educational publishing company, he has developed the nonprofit “Townsend Library”—a collection of more than a hundred new and classic stories that appeal to readers of any age.
