Meet the Author

After writing about technology for more than 25 years, Katherine Murray believes there’s never been a better time to be a tech enthusiast. She has seen personal computing change from big, slow, cryptic desktop-hogging machines to small, sleek smart devices we can tap our way through easily. She has worked with every version of Microsoft Windows there’s been, loving some versions (such as Windows 7) and loathing others (remember Windows Vista?). But now with Windows 8.1, she feels Microsoft is in sync with the times, offering a fast, fluid, and secure option for connecting with others, enjoying media, saving to the cloud, and integrating our work across multiple devices. She started writing about technology 25 years ago and still enjoys it, specializing in Microsoft technologies and the fascinating ways in which we stay in touch with each other. In addition to writing books, she writes regularly for Windows Secrets magazine.
