Introduction (CONTACT: bookrevs@aol.com) A fulltime writer for the past 28 years, I've written several dozen books, among them On the Way to the Web; Blogging Heroes;, the New York Times bestseller Crosley; Before Oprah: Ruth Lyons, the Woman Who Created Talk TV; and a few science fiction novels. Forthcoming are a tell-all about Internet "interaction," a biography of Earl Muntz (who invented auto stereo), and computing titles. I've done quite a bit of editing, including acquisitions for Baen Books and serving as Associate Editor or New Destinies.
