Oden, who is from Colorado, has spent more than 3,000 hours tutoring international students in Conversational English. He currently attends the University of Alberta where he is pursuing a Master's degree in Education.
When asked how the book came about, he said, "Any of us trying to learn a new language will make a lot of mistakes, and some of them are going to be pretty entertaining. Whenever one of my students said something funny, I would always jot it down. One night I printed up my collection, and my roommates couldn't stop laughing. They wanted copies to give their friends, and that's how it started. It's been a lot of fun putting it all together and getting it published. I just hope it spreads a little laughter, which I think we could all use a little more of these days."
"Never Lick a Gift Horse in the Mouth!..." (ISBN 1-932738-13-4) is available through bookstores December 1st.
