More About the Author
Martin (Marty) Matthews has been writing books that help people easily use technology for over 25 years, authoring or co-authoring over 80 books in that time. He is the co-creator of the very successful and highly acclaimed QuickSteps series of books, published, as most of his books are, by McGraw-Hill. His most recent books in print, through Spring 2012, are "Genealogy QuickSteps," "Computing for Seniors QuickSteps," "Windows 7 for Seniors QuickSteps," and "Windows 7 SP1 QuickSteps." He is currently working on "Windows 8 QuickSteps," due in the fall of 2012, and will soon start "Office 15 QuickSteps," due out in the first half of 2013.
Marty does consulting when he is not writing and likes to backpack, ski, and sail in the great Pacific Northwest where he lives with his wife Carole (who is also a writer) on an island in Puget Sound. Prior to their writing career, Marty and Carole were the co-founders and principal executives of a software company that developed and sold an estimating and accounting system for printing and contracting businesses. Marty has been "playing" with computers since they took up the better part of a football field.
