Two Shakes of a Lamb’s Tail

Yes, I’ve published a new book! Non-fiction this time. Here are the cover and the back page blurb:


This book explores the source and use of 355 common phrases and words in our wicked, wonderful, wacky English language. 

While it’s raining cats and dogs, we’ll horse around with pie in the sky and, when we’re at the zoo, a bird will briefly land in our hand before it bites the dust. However, devil-may-care and full of beans, we’ll use body language to discuss breaking the ice and calling a spade a spade. If we go belly up, though, we’ll bite the bullet, pick up on the scuttlebutt, face the music, and then think outside the box. Now that we have an axe to grind, we’ll let the chips fall where they may, grab a snickerdoodle, go on the lam, and start living the life of Riley.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!




Click on the small cover image in the left-hand column, which will take you to the web page. There you can read a few samples and find out where to get it as an ebook. I am having copies printed as well, which should be available from me by the end of next week. 

It was a fun book to write and I think you’ll find it a fun book to read.
