Writer. Plain.

Though I’m primarily a tech book author (and former software engineer), I’m interested in a variety of subjects—the environment and the climate, animal welfare, sustainable agriculture and food safety, open documents, government, and, of course, technology.

I just finished a small book about web technologies for the absolute newbie. I also recently finished a second edition of “JavaScript Cookbook”. Since woman doesn’t live by tech, alone, I’m also working on three books completely unrelated to technology.

My Twitter account is @shelleypowers, my Facebook page is at Shelley.Just, and I sometimes write to Google+.

Or you can just Email me.
