More About the Author

It all started with Creative Writing 101 back in high school. There are oodles of unfinished fiction works around my desk, but it has been writing techy and artsy books that are the path I walk these days.

Hope you enjoy what I have provided. It's always a hoot writing a book - keeping late hours, forgetting to eat, and trying to pet my cat and type at the same time.

Thanks!

It says very clearly on the cover that this is the third (3rd) edition. On the back cover is the ISBN number 978-1-118-46084-9. I received the second (2nd) edition with the ISBN number 978-0-470-56816-3.
