Author / Editor

I’ve served as the Editor-in-Chief for two industry journals.  I was supposed to write a book on a trendy topic but the trend died before we could get to print and I had to return the advance.

I had a similar experience with a three book series on XML, XSLT, and systems integration but JSON rapidly replaced XML usage.  Ah well, someday I may actually write a book that makes it to the finish line.

I also contributed to several books from Wrox but I don't have references for them.
