Two years of teaching K through 8 prepared A.V. Scrivner to handle all areas of high school English as well as first-year college writing. She has published books in the fields of English grammar and usage and American history, along with her fictional works in the Zahtya Trilogy series. Other literary interests include essays, poetry and screenplays. Another of her passions is her own aerobics-based symmetrical choreography, which served as the basis of the present volume of exercise/dance routines.
