Crossword Nation.  Over 50 million people, and counting. That’s how many Americans solve crosswords each week.*  In the 19 years since my first puzzle was published, I’ve been privileged to correspond with many of those solvers:  You, the Problem Solver.  I salute you!

I believe that solving crosswords — micro-solving — empowers us with skills to face life’s challenges.

Because when you’re a Problem Solver . . .

  • Your boss wants to hire 100 people just like you

  • You’re the better student (the better cook, tennis player . . . fill in the blank)

  • You empower your children, by example, with problem-solving skills they will use for a lifetime

  • You improve your community by being the solution, not the problem

  • You are mentally vibrant and proactive every day of your life

Whether you’re a top speed solver who knocks off a Sunday puzzle in minutes; or an I’ll-take-my-sweet-time crossword solver  (like me!) — solving any problem is just plain good sense.

If you’re interested in solving a new type of early-in-the-week puzzle, please join our Crossword Nation family by subscribing to our weekly puzzle.  You’ll receive a sparkling, brand-new puzzle every Tuesday.  It’s fun, accessible and sure to make you smile!

Ever In Your Corner,
