Welcome to ‘Verbs in Storyland’. This series of books will introduce children to irregular, and regular verbs through the use of stories, and the odd drawing or two. I hope that you like them because I believe that they are unique in their style, and concept. Here is just one exert.
“Jim…here at ‘THEIVES’ we pride ourselves on stealing good things,” Mr. Jones said.
“Yes, I know,” Jim said, “that’s why I want to work here.”
“Gloria, tell Jim what you stole last week,” Mr. Jones said with a bright smile.
“I stole this!” Gloria said as she held up a pencil case.
This exert is from Steal-Stole-Stolen, and there are nine others in this book.
Overall there are over 600 irregular verbs, and many more regular verbs. So, as you can see, I will have my work cut out for me writing all of the stories.
So happy reading, and I’ll catch you in the next volume.
Anthony T. Hincks
Hmmm, let’s see. I am fifty-seven years of age, and I am married with one daughter.
I wrote eight books previously, but they were done at a time in my life that I wouldn’t call stable. The English in them was not all that good, and I only wanted to get them published so that I had a record of them getting done. All, but one were published under the name Anthony Hawes, and I am currently in the process of rewriting these books so that they will be better.
In the last year I have also published, on Goodreads.com, over 1,500 quotes/sayings under the name Anthony T. Hincks. They are published, and used all over the world, and have appeared in newspapers, newsletters, books, and other publications. They have also appeared alongside many famous people, which I find quite humbling and rewarding.
I love to write!
I am more Buddhist, than anything else, and I believe that this is where a lot of my inspiration comes from for my quotes.
I love animals, the environment, life, and I try to look for the best in people not matter what their background or circumstances.
So, that’s me in a nutshell, as they say.
