About the Author

Michael N. Marcus is a journalist, bestselling author, award-winning advertising copywriter and a mostly successful amateur attorney. He is publisher of Silver Sands Books and president of Able Comm, Inc. ("The Telecom Department Store").

His writing career started when he published a newspaper in elementary school, and since then he has been an editor at Rolling Stone and has written for many other magazines and newspapers. Michael is the author of over twenty books and has provided the words for over one hundred websites and blogs. He specializes in making technology understandable, and often humorous.

At the urging of a misguided guidance counselor, Michael went to Lehigh University to become an electrical engineer and was quickly disappointed to learn that engineering was mostly math—and slide rules were not nearly as much fun as soldering irons. Michael was one of the few literate people in his engineer-filled freshman dormitory and made money by editing term papers for classmates.

Michael lives in Connecticut with his wife Marilyn, Hunter the Golden Retriever, and a lot of stuff—including both indoor and outdoor telephone booths, a "Lily Tomlin" switchboard, lots of books, CDs and DVDs, and many black boxes with flashing lights. Marilyn is very tolerant.
