About the Author

About the Author Jennifer Kaufeld spends most waking hours in front of the computer, writing about technology or reviewing educational software for home schoolers and home-education journals. Any free time finds her researching and re-creating Victorian and pre-1950s needlework, helping in the family game store (www.linguaplay.com), speaking at home education conventions about the educational use of computers and software, or presiding over the Greek and English lessons in the family home school. Writing several America Online books hasn't deterred her from the fun of tracking down new online areas and features. Look for her lurking around the system under the screen name JSKaufeld.
