started programming computers in 1982 when he traded in an IBM Selectric typewriter to buy an Atari 400 computer (16K of RAM!). Clay soon learned to combine his interest in writing with his newly acquired programming skills, and started selling programs and articles to computer magazines. In 1985,
ANALOG Computing— a nationally distributed computer magazine—hired him as a technical editor. Before leaving the magazine business in 1989 to become a freelance writer, Clay had worked his way up to Executive Editor. He since has acquired a degree in Computer Science, and has worked on more than 40 books (translated into many languages) covering everything from computer gaming to 3D graphics programming. He also has written hundreds of magazine articles and software reviews, as well as countless programs. His recent books include
Windows 98 Programming Secrets ,
C++ Master Reference , and
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Visual Basic 6 . Clay's biggest disappointment in life is that he wasn't one of the Beatles. To compensate, he writes and records rock music in his home studio. You can reach Clay by sending e–mail to [email protected]
