She began The Guidebook for Publishing Philosophy twenty years ago, co-authored the 1986 version with Marcia Yudkin and put that version on the World Wide Web with Rachel Westmoreland (http://www.smith.edu/~jmoulton/guidebook). After writing The Organization of Language (with G. M. Robinson, Cambridge University Press) and Ethical Problems in Higher Education (with G. M.
