More About the Author

I love computers but I hate complexity. That's why I specialize in making complicated topics easier to understand. My computer books tackle a variety that include Microsoft Office and computer programming. Besides my many computer books, I've also written books on non-computer topics such as stock investing and screenwriting. When not writing books, I also perform stand-up comedy so I can bring a humorous touch to my explanation of complicated topics so they're easier to learn.

In the stand-up comedy world, I've been performing stand-up comedy for over 20 years, having appeared on A&E's "Evening at the Improv" and SiTV's "Latino Laugh Festival" along with appearing at the Riviera Comedy Club in Las Vegas. Currently I'm focusing my comedic writing skills towards occasional comedy performances but mostly towards screenwriting. You can read my screenwriting blog at The 15 Minute Movie Method (www.15minutemoviemethod.com). I've collected the best ideas from my screenwriting blog and condensed them into an e-book also called "The 15-Minute Movie Method," which is available as an e-book.

In 1992, I got my first cat and after reading a basic cat care book, I found that none of the advice offered had any basis in reality for dealing with the quirks and whims of a real cat. Based on that experience, I wrote a parody of a cat care book called "How to Live with a Cat (When You Really Don't Want To)." This book is now available as an e-book and I also run a blog called Cat Daily News (www.catdailynews.com) where I collect interesting cat news from around the Internet.

In the teaching world, I've taught at community colleges around San Diego as well as teaching at the University of Zimbabwe in Africa. Currently I teach an online Microsoft Word and OS X/iOS programming course through a company called Ed2Go.

In the writing world, I've written for several magazines including Computer Power User (CPU), Boardwatch Magazine, and Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities. I also write a weekly Macintosh column in an online computer magazine called ComputorEdge (www.computoredge.com). In addition, I've ghost written several books for real estate experts, stock day trading specialists, and network marketing millionaires. In 2008, I helped San Diego State University's film department win their first student Emmy when they filmed my sitcom pilot, "Three of a Kind," which is about three generations of couples forced to live in the same house without driving each other crazy from their different points of view on everything.

In the game designing world, I've created and published a game in 1983 called "Orbit War," which was published by Steve Jackson Games (the game is now out of print). The game simulated low orbital combat between satellites.

I'm interested in always learning something new and combining my various skills and experience to help others understand changing technology. To keep up with my random thoughts concerning advice I wish someone had given me, you can read my personal blog at www.wallacewang.com.

My latest interest involves creating interactive e-books, so I also run another web site called The Electronic Author (www.electronicauthor.com) where I give tips for how others can publish e-books inexpensively and maximize their profits. Since printed books cost so much to make, ship, and store, and bookstores are fading from relevance faster than the latest reality TV star, you can see that the future of printed books is about as promising as Kim Kardashian suddenly deciding to go to college and earn a Ph.D. in nuclear physics.

With all my books I strive to simplify complex topics in a fun way that everyone can enjoy. Life is too short to remain mentally stagnant, so keep learning and striving for your goals, and I'll be happy to help through my books so you can reach your dreams.
