I’m a professional author and have written four books for The Pragmatic Bookshelf: iPad and iPhone Kung Fu (2014), Mac Kung Fu (2011 and 2012), and Ubuntu Kung Fu (2008). For other publishers I’ve written Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference, Beginning Ubuntu Linux (now in its Nth edition), Beginning SUSE Linux (in its second edition), and Beginning Fedora Linux.
Prior to this I worked as an editor on several books, and before that was a computer magazine editor, working on Windows and Linux magazines. I’ve also blogged professionally for PC World and MacWorld.
I live in northern Britain with three other lifeforms (including two cats). My hobbies include walking, cycling and vegetable gardening.
