 Gordon Osmond
 Gordon Osmond is a graduate of Columbia College and Columbia Law School, where he served as Decisions Editor of the Law Review. His entire legal career was spent at a single Wall Street law firm. He compensates for his excessive professional stability by having a fairly tumultuous personal life.

Osmond is the author of several stage plays, which have been produced throughout the United States. He has also taught English and Business Communications for very low pay.

In his various endeavors, Osmond has been inspired and challenged by the wonders of the English language to which his book, "So You Think You Know English--A Guide to English for Those Who Think They Don't Need One" is dedicated. Those who have relied upon or enjoyed "The Elements of Style" and "Eats, Shoots & Leaves" will find Osmond's book a valuable addition to homes, schools, and libraries.

Osmond continued with non-fiction with his "unauthorized autobiography," Wet Firecrackers.

In January, 2013, Secret Cravings Publishing launched Osmond's debut novel, Slipping on Stardust, which has already received professional reviews that sound like they were written by family members that owe Osmond money. They weren't.

Osmond hosts a weekly radio broadcast, sponsored by the Eclectic Authors Showcase. He interviews "name" authors and others who are struggling to become such.

'The Page' is a satire along with an honest outlook on people affected by policies and their being used wrong of the Environmental Protection Agency. The book is very realistic, well written and a short read.  It's realistic, because the characters do things that sometimes real people do on impulse. Two characters, Candy and Jim Lovett have a fashion manufacturing business.They are the picture perfect of a family that has it all. When the powers to be in Washington make a new law, the Lovett's lose all their money. Candy and Jim have a son, Cameron who becomes a page to the senator that came up with the law. Cameron is still a child, he hasn't matured yet, but he has some street smarts.  He's smart and cunning. He can give you an answer at the blink of an eye. Then enters Luana Rosas, very intelligent, lovely and quite aggressive.  Will there be a romance between Luana and Cameron? You will run through a series of emotions while reading this book. Challenges in life along with finding purpose in life.  The ending will totally surprise you. The more you read the more you will feel you know the characters at different levels. The author also brings parts of his own life into the book.  It's a story of ethics and morals.  Not everyone looks at them the same.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Gordon Osmond in exchange for my unbiased view. No other compensation was received.

I would give this book 4  STARS.
