It all started with a phone call from my friend and colleague, Jennifer Lawler. Working as an editor at a small publishing house, she had one question for me: “Would you like to write a math book?”
Would I? Heck yeah!
And so I wrote Math for Grownups, a sometimes funny, always accessible book about the math grownups need to be, well, grown up. To my great delight, people loved it.
I got to thinking. What about the subsets of the grownup group? (That’s an abstract algebra joke, y’all.) I decided to start with Math for Writers: Tell a Better Story, Get Published and Make More Money.
