Kevin M. Sullivan is a writer and a teacher (M.A., English: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). He’s taught English in the United States and English, linguistics and humor studies in Japan. He’s also presented and published English-teaching research, paraphrased and indexed idioms for a vocabulary textbook (Impact Words + Phrases, Longman Asia, 1997) and written humor pieces. English alone couldn’t satisfy his language passion, so he’s been seeing seven others on the side, including Mandarin. A few languages took out restraining orders, but they’ve worked things out.
