  1. Hi Tim.
    I got an email from Valerie regarding swapping reviews. Pleased to. How do you want to proceed? Valerie mentioned you have a review from an English reader who doesn’t realise that American spelling is different to and in my view more straight forward than, English. I’ve also had some silly reviews done by vindictive readers. It’s easy to say, ‘Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me’ but in this case the unkind words can do considerable damage. It seems we are in the same place trying to built sales of our books.


    1. Hello Graham,
      Sorry it has taken this long to respond. I am sending you an email to the address you provided. I think swapping reviews is a grand idea. Thanks for your interest.
      Best Wishes,

    Dear Mr. Hemlin,
    If you would recall, you were previously an instructor of the English language at Dulles Middle School. You, my friend, were a real ride or die. You made me love learning, and I kind of don’t remember learning, but those socratic seminars, man… they really warmed my soul. I am no longer a bitter 15 1/2 year old. I want you to know that you broke my smol, fragile heart when you left and out of all the people to give your favorite student award, you gaVE IT TO RC! Also, why would you let Ms. Strange choose our substitute??? I was disappointed in the selection of our sub instructor. You should come to Dulles High School and teach us, because I doubt there is something better that you have to do. Thx, bye.

    P.S: your hair is hella™
