About the Author

Lowell Heddings runs the popular How-To Geek web site that helps him win the Microsoft MVP award year after year. His thousands of technology articles have been read by tens of millions of people worldwide, and he's even been published in Popular Science magazine a couple of times. He's currently wearing a t-shirt with a picture of Bender from Futurama.

Matthew Klein is an up-and-coming author who's penned many a great American novel while lying awake at night thinking "I should really get up and write this down." The How-To Geek Guide to Windows 8 is his first stab at professional writing and is, what he hopes will be, the first of many parent-friendly how-to tech books to come. Matt currently resides in Southeast Texas where he practices his Spanglish, searches for the perfect breakfast burrito, and wonders how much bigger pick-up trucks can possibly get.
