- In the beginning...
- I was an overworked technical writer, writing manuals for various silicon valley software companies and not having a lot of fun doing it. For fun I was hanging out on the Internet, which, at the time was a small and cozy place, and it was there that I first discovered the World Wide Web.
- Then suddenly...
- I was struck with the compulsion to write a book. After discovering that most of the good ideas were taken, I finally managed to write a book about HTML, called "Teach Yourself Web Publishing with HTML in a Week", which was published by Sams.Net, would eventually become a best-seller and allow me to quit my job and work as a freelance writer. This is a lot more fun than writing manuals.
- And finally...
- in the time since that first book, I've written a number of other books on HTML and Java, and am series editor for the Laura Lemay's Web Workshop series of books. I also write a monthly column for Web Techniques magazine, and am working on a book about Marimba Castanet. In my spare time (ha!) I collect and putter with non-running motorcycles.
