About the Authors

Jerry Joyce is a marine biologist who has conducted research from the Arctic to the Antarctic and has published extensively on marine-mammal and fisheries issues. He developed computer programs in association with these studies to simplify real-time data entry, validation, and analysis that substantially enhanced the quality of the research. He has also had a long-standing relationship with Microsoft: Prior to co-authoring 15 books about Microsoft Windows, Word, and Office, he was the technical editor for numerous books published by Microsoft Press, and he wrote manuals, help files, and specifications for various Microsoft products. Jerry is a Seattle Audubon volunteer and represents Seattle Audubon on the Washington State Oil Spill Advisory Council and the Washington State Ballast Water Working Group.

Marianne Moon has worked in the publishing world for many years as proofreader, editor, and writer—sometimes all three simultaneously. She has been editing and proofreading Microsoft Press books since 1984 and has written and edited documentation for Microsoft products such as Microsoft Works, Flight Simulator, Space Simulator, Golf, Publisher, the Microsoft Mouse, and Greetings Workshop. In another life, she was chief cook and bottlewasher for her own catering service and wrote weekly cooking articles for several newspapers. When she’s not chained to her computer, she likes gardening, cooking, traveling, writing, and knitting sweaters for tiny dogs. There’s a children’s book in her head that she hopes will find its way out one of these days.
