Welcome to my author website!
As a first-time publisher, I hope everyone will enjoy my first edition/volume of Scrabble Homonyms. As I have put on the back cover of my book, I came up with this idea upon noticing the Scrabble dictionaries did not show how to pronounce such strange words that the makers(Merriam-Webster) included (like "How do you even say CWM, HWYL, & PUISNE?") and thought of putting it all together in a book adding some fun to it at the same time. I mistakenly left out that my very first time of writing experience began just out of high school back in the 1970's for my small-town paper in Ohio on star-gazing---NOT a great place for that near the Great Lakes!! Then I joined a Scrabble club in AZ, years after playing the game with my family in NW OH and it became more fun and learning new words along the way with its own sense of vocabulary (like words as verbs when you think of them as nouns), one of the main reasons for this book. You will learn oddball words such as blagging, bubu, cwm, futz, offal, putz, stonking, and zuz But no homophones for pogonip, unfortunately! There will be more to come in the 2nd Edition, besides additional homonyms. May this first one be an informative educational tool (to partly compensate the dumbing-down by the school system) and a blessing for your family.
