About The Author
Elyse Bruce started Idiomation in January 2010. The single parent of a child with multiple disabilities including Asperger Syndrome (an Autism Spectrum Disorder), Myasthenia Gravis (an incurable life-threatening neuromuscular autoimmune disease), and a number of minor-in-comparison disabilities, disorders and diagnoses, she started Idiomation to help others to better understand idioms.
Originally intended for those who have difficulties with figurative language, soon history buffs, newspaper hounds, educators and everyday folk began visiting because they, too, were interested not only in the idiom of the day but the history behind the idiom of the day.
A member of the American Federation of Musicians Local 446 (AFM) and SOCAN, Elyse balances her time writing and recording music, writing articles, mastering new technology, teaching songwriting and marketing courses, raising awareness of invisible disabilities by way of her international tourism and culture initiative, Midnight In Chicago, and more. Elyse also enjoys thinking up new and exciting projects that involve — and benefit — as many people as possible.
