Bruce Coville, Why Didn't You TELL Me?

Turns out I've been pronouncing some authors' names incorrectly. (Cornelia . . . Foonk? Funky?) The coolest way to determine whether you've been doing this, too? This site. Heck, I'd heard Maggie Stiefvater speak at a conference, and I was still getting it wrong. But no more!

Kind of funny that the site doesn't include a clip from J. K. Rowling. If they think that her popularity means people aren't mispronouncing her name, they are wrong.
