Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen
"Hilarious…This book charmed my socks off." —Patricia O’Conner, New York Times Book Review Mary Norris has spent more than three decades working in The New Yorker’s renowned copy department, helping to maintain its celebrated high standards. In Between You & Me, she brings her vast experience with grammar and usage, her good cheer and irreverence, and her finely sharpened pencils to help the rest of us in a boisterous language book as full of life as it is of practical advice. Named a Best Book of the Year by NPR, Amazon, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and Library Journal.

Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen
The Comma Queen returns with a buoyant book about language, love, and the wine-dark sea. In her New York Times bestseller Between You & Me, Mary Norris delighted readers with her irreverent tales of pencils and punctuation in The New Yorker’s celebrated copy department. In Greek to Me, she delivers another wise and funny paean to the art of self-expression, this time filtered through her greatest passion: all things Greek. Greek to Me is a charming account of Norris’s lifelong love affair with words and her solo adventures in the land of olive trees and ouzo. Along the way, Norris explains how the alphabet originated in Greece, makes the case for Athena as a feminist icon, goes searching for the fabled Baths of Aphrodite, and reveals the surprising ways Greek helped form English. Filled with Norris’s memorable encounters with Greek words, Greek gods, Greek wine—and more than a few Greek men—Greek to Me is the Comma Queen’s fresh take on Greece and the exotic yet strangely familiar language that so deeply influences our own.

Surviving by the Grace of God
Some people don't have or know love, faith, or the belief or trust in the Lord. They did at sometime in their life, but the paths that came along in their life cause them to lose it. Some were strong enough to fight back and somewhere not. I was one of the Blessed ones. I grew up a little barefoot country girl. At the age of 6 years I learned how to take care of my brother at 12 years my youngest brother. At the age of 18 I met the love of my life with two children and six months later we were married. I live in the small town of Garland North Carolina. I have one living child left with me for the rest of my journey. But I don't have to worry where my other four children are because I know they are in heaven waiting on me. Even with all the trials and pain I went through in my life, the Lord has molded me into something beautiful of his own.
