About the Author
Rod Mebane is known for his ability to simplify complex things and to present them in compelling ways. In the early 1990s, for example, while living in Dallas, Rod decided to study Spanish at a local community college and (for *fun*) published Más Fácil—a Prentice Hall textbook that contains the rules of Spanish grammar in less than 100 pages of text. In 2020, Rod’s professional grammar focus broadened to include English with his publication of Everyday Grammar, from Wellfleet Press.
Exceptional analytical and presentation skills have served Rod well in his career—one that is anchored by a number of significant positions, including university treasurer, foundation director, chief learning officer, and consulting partner. He also earned degrees from Swarthmore College and University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication. Along this trek, Rod honed his communication knowledge and skill and now offers a variety of communication support services under the banner of Wordsmith Associates.
In this wordsmith capacity, Rod has published a variety of works, spanning the fields of education, investment and finance, and professional development. He has also helped numerous individuals realize their authoring dreams, enabling them to publish their stories, usually in the form of reflective, later-in-life documents (including letters, memoirs, and tributes). Rod lives with his wife Donna and blind-dog Willie in Geneva, Illinois, a far-west suburb of Chicago. When pursuing avocational interests, Rod can be found carving wood, keeping bees, and nurturing his family tree.
