Q: What gave you the idea for SHAKESPEAREAN SALLIES, SULLIES, AND SLANDERS: Insults for all Occasions?
A: I’ve always loved Shakespeare’s language. I read all his poems and plays. He was a master of insults, so I thought it would be fun to write the best of them for older kids to use. “His face is the worst thing about him” or “I do desire we be better strangers.”
