Meet the Author

About the Author Camille McCue has used PowerPoint since its beginnings, watching it grow from an infant presentation tool into a killer application. She built her first slide shows — chock full of Newton's Laws and Far Side cartoons — while tele-teaching high school physics via satellite. (And like all science teachers, she worships Gary Larson!) A bona fide Longhorn, Camille earned her bachelor's degree in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin. (While at UT, she also lived in the Jester Zoo, rode an Aqua Festival float, and drank hundreds of lattes at Captain Quackenbush's.) In her post-college years, Camille worked as a PC marketing representative (box-kicker) for IBM, and she instructed geometry and calculus to some very wonderful students in Pearsall, Texas. Along the way, she also picked up a masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from UT San Antonio. After a fateful interview featuring Tom Jones (the astronaut — not the entertainer), Camille landed a fabulous position producing electronic field trips for NASA. There, she traveled to each field center, creating live television events highlighting the agency's aeronautics and space research. Using everything from swimming robots to CU-SeeMe, Camille employed every conceivable technology to convey cutting edge science to the public. These days, Camille coordinates the Ready To Learn program for the PBS affiliate in Las Vegas, Nevada, boosting literacy among disadvantaged children. On a typical day you can find her happily singing "I Love Pumpernickel" with rowdy tots and a Barney ActiMates character. She also hosts PBS's Live From . specials, teaches educational computing at UNLV, and builds Authorware training CD-ROMs for the International Gaming Institute. In her spare time, Camille enjoys marveling at the architecture of the Las Vegas Strip with her spectacular husband Michael, who is an intellectual property and Internet attorney. Camille and Michael are the proud parents of a large brood consisting of two felines (Fritz and Tikka), three canines (Rio, Houdini, and Picasso), and two computers (Micron and Gateway). Camille is also the author of PowerPoint 97 For Windows For Dummies Quick Reference (IDG Books Worldwide, Inc.).
