Karen Little has been a computer consultant, manager, educator and programmer since 1980. By 1985, around the time the first IBM PC came to the market, she founded Office Technology Academy (OTA), a highly regarded computer training school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, which she ran until 1991. Karen left OTA and soon thereafter founded Clear Concepts, a consulting company providing training programs, documentation and technical illustrations to major manufacturing companies. She also wrote for numerous technical magazines and was Associate Editor and writer for Corel Magazine.
