About the Author

About Suzanne Weixel

Suzanne Weixel is a writer and editor who specializes in the technology

industry. Her first experience with computers was in 1974 when she learned

to play football on the Dartmouth time-sharing terminal her brother had

installed in their home. Later, she graduated from Dartmouth College in 1981

with a degree in Art History.

In 1984, after a series of jobs that included stints in the advertising

department at Inc. Magazine, and as the Quality Assurance Coordinator

at International Training Systems, a now-defunct developer of interactive

educational training courseware, she wound up in the advertising department

of ComputerWorld Newspaper. The following year she moved to the

editorial department as the New Products Editor. In 1988, Suzanne left

ComputerWorld to become a full-time freelance writer and editor. Since then,

she has written, co-written, or edited more than 40 books, including the

Power User's Guide to Windows 95, Learning Microsoft Word 2003, Learning

Microsoft Office 2003, Learning Macromedia Flash 5, and Learning Microsoft

Windows XP.

Suzanne currently lives in Marlborough, Massachusetts, with her

husband, Rick. They have two sons, Nathaniel and Evan, and a dog, a

Samoyed named Cirrus. For fun, she walks, works in the yard, hangs out with

her family, and watches television. She is a lifelong fan of the New England

Patriots and the Boston Red Sox and attends as many games as possible. She

has been known to ski and ride a bicycle, on occasion.

Sally was a co-author on the Learn series since its inception and has authored
