Meet the Author

Stephen L. Nelson, CPA, MBA (finance), MS (taxation), has a simple purpose in life: He wants to help you (and people like you) manage your business finances by using computers. Oh, sure, this personal mandate won't win him a Nobel Prize or anything, but it's his own little contribution to the world.
Steve's experiences mesh nicely with his special purpose. A CPA in Redmond, Washington, his past small business experience includes a stint as an adjunct professor of taxation (S corporations and limited liability companies) at Golden Gate University graduate tax school and a few years working as a senior consultant and CPA with Arthur Andersen & Co. (er, yeah, that Arthur Andersen — but, hey, it was nearly 30 years ago). Steve, whose books have sold more than 4 million copies in English and have been translated into 11 other languages, is also the bestselling author of Quicken 2012 For Dummies.

Loredana Stroup, DPhil (Oxon), MBA, has over a decade of experience working with businesses in various capacities including management consulting, software training, and technology systems design and integration. Her passion is to help people run their businesses more efficiently and effectively, especially through the use of proven digital technologies. She founded and runs Alta Training Limited which specialises in QuickBooks setups, training, and troubleshooting. Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks, has recognised her expertise and tapped it in the development, testing and launching of QuickBooks (UK), and also in engaging her to write training materials and deliver training programmes across the country.
