About the Authoress(es)

Etiquette expert Lady Snark grew to fame through her deportment class for inmates at the Haverford Women’s Correctional Facility. Once a world traveler, the much-widowed and twice-incarcerated authoress now lives year round in Bar Harbor, as the conditions of her parole prevent her from leaving the excruciatingly dull state of Maine.

A.C. Kemp is the director of the award-winning American slang website www.slangcity.com, and her innovative classes on slang and American culture have been profiled in The Boston Globe and The Christian Science Monitor. She is a lecturer in Foreign Languages and Literatures at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
