She’s been using .NET since the pre-Alpha days, and yet still enjoys the fun of working with beta software.
Chris lives in Birmingham (UK, not Alabama) with her extremely understanding husband James, as she tries to fit writing alongside her hectic job and her attempts at gardening. She collects computers in much the same way as some old ladies collect cats.

Dave Sussman is an independent trainer, consultant, and writer, who inhabits that strange place called beta land. It’s full of various computers, multiple boot partitions, VPC images, and very occasionally, stable software. When not writing books or testing alpha and beta software, Dave can be found working with a variety of clients helping to bring ASP.NET projects into fruition. He is a Microsoft MVP, and a member of the ASP Insiders and INETA Speakers Bureau. You can find more details about Dave and his books at his official Web site (www.ipona.com) or the site he shares with Alex Homer (http://daveandal.net).

Quitting Wrox as a full-time employee in August 2001, he branched out into VB.NET/C# programming and ASP.NET development and started his own business, CUASP Consulting Ltd, in April 2003. He maintains a variety of sites from www.cuasp.co.uk, his “work” site, to www.atomicwise.com, a selection of his writings on music and art. The birth of his twins, Jay and Luca, in February 2005 took chaos to a new level. He now divides his time between protecting the twins from their over-affectionate three-year-old brother Nye, composing electronic sounds on bits of dilapidated old keyboards for his music project, Open E, and tutoring his cats in the art of peaceful coexistence, and not violently mugging each other on the stairs.
