About the Author

Steve Schwartz got an early start as a computer industry writer and author. Immediately after buying an Apple II+ in 1978, he began writing regularly for the computer magazines of the day. Since then, he has written hundreds of articles for major publications, including Macworld, PC World, InfoWorld, and Computerworld. He is also the author of more than 60 books on game and computer topics, including guides to business/productivity software (Microsoft Office, Access, and FileMaker Pro), Internet software (Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Entourage, and Gmail), and graphics/imageediting software (Picasa, Picture It!, Digital Image Suite, and CorelDRAW).

 

Before becoming a full-time writer in 1990, Steve served as editor-in-chief for Software Digest and technical services director for Funk Software. He also authored the first trade paperback on the then-new Nintendo phenomenon: Compute!’s Guide to Nintendo Games.

 

Steve has a Ph.D. in psychology, consults on game and database design issues, and lives in the fictional town of Lizard Spit, Arizona. You can see the complete list of his published books at http://www.siliconwasteland.com/misc.htm.
