About the Author

Caroline Taggart worked in publishing as an editor of popular non-fiction for 30 years before being asked by Michael O'Mara Books to write I USED TO KNOW THAT, which became a Sunday Times bestseller. Following that she co-wrote MY GRAMMAR AND I (OR SHOULD THAT BE 'ME'?) As a result of these books and HER LADYSHIP'S GUIDE TO THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH, published by Batsford, she has appeared frequently on BBC Breakfast and on national and regional radio, talking about language, grammar and Pythagoras's theorem. Her record is 16 radio interviews in one day on the subject of exclamation marks. Her other books include THE BOOK OF ENGLISH PLACE NAMES, THE BOOK OF LONDON PLACE NAMES, HOW TO GREET THE QUEEN (AND OTHER QUESTIONS OF MODERN ETIQUETTE) and A SLICE OF BRITAIN: AROUND THE COUNTRY BY CAKE which The Sunday Times described as 'engaging, greedy and droll'. Since then she has reverted to words, with 500 WORDS YOU SHOULD KNOW, NEW WORDS FOR OLD and her current project, MISADVENTURES IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, due in autumn 2016. The latest in her 'Her Ladyship' series for Batsford is HER LADYSHIP'S GUIDE TO THE ART OF CONVERSATION. Her website is and you can follow her on Twitter @citaggart.
