week's show featured Debra, author of AppleWorks for Dummies and contributing
author of Mac Office 98 Bible. Deborah started playing with computers
in high school, where a terminal called into
a mainframe at a local university. Throughout her years in video and
audio/visual production, computers kept coming back into her life. And
then came the Mac.... She got into the Mac for its creative abilities,
did some art and desktop publishing, and then found herself being
called a computer "expert."
Deborah has been on the Los Angeles Macintosh
Group's (LAMG) Board of Directors since 1993. She's also a member of
the Association of Database Developers and the Association of
Macintosh Trainers. You can find her teaching classes or leading
Special Interest Groups at the LAMG, speaking at MacFair and at Macworld
Expo, or teaching computers and computer software all over L.A.
