Susan Kelz Sperling received her liripoops from Barnard College and Boston College Graduate School and put in her darg as a high-school English teacher in Connecticut. The author and her aimcrier husband live in a pleasantly purfled, many eyethurled home (a bit larger than a cosh) in the iqueme city of Rye, New York, free from fearbabes, killcows, and ug, where they rixle with storge over their three poplollies — two boys and a girl. Having always found great adlubescence in playing reaks with words, Ms Sperling expects to snirtle and keak over the woodness of words, either in hudder-mudder or with fellowfeeling boonfellows, right on into her chair day.
