About the Author

Mr. Hailes began writing in a high school Plane Geometry class where he wrote his first science fiction novel. His writing took a back seat for the next twenty years as he got married, graduated in English from the University of Utah, worked on a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature, became a salesman and then sales manager for Highlights for Children, managed a twenty-story medical building in Minneapolis, and finally came to California as a technical writer. Mr. Hailes lives south of Silicon Valley in San Jose, California about five miles from the historic Quicksilver County Park, the site of a gun battle in his western adventure novel, The Quicksilver Kid. For the last fourteen years, he has been writing technical manuals and training materials for companies such as IBM, Claris, Hewlett-Packard, and 3Com. He has written books with titles like TokenLink III 16-bit Micro Channel Adapter Guide, LANALert Network Management System User’s Manual, and Integrated Circuit Measurement System (IC-MS) User’s Manual. He also writes Windows Help Systems. These works, along with their hardware and software, have been purchased by millions of people.
