>1. List the reference books (maximum of five) that you use most

In no particular order:

a. "Newton's Telecom Dictionary" by Harry Newton
b. "Dictionary of Internetworking Terms and Acronyms" by Cisco Systems
c. "The Masters Series: FrameMaker 6" by Thomas Neuburger
d. "Digital Pre-Press Complete" by Donnie O'Quinn and Matt LeClair
e. "How to Communicate Technical Information" by Jonathan Price and Henry

>2. In one sentence, summarize or list the kind(s) of writing you do. (i.e.
>manuals, help systems, marketing, fiction, humor, journalism, weird sig
>lines, etc.)

At work: I write software technical manuals intended for an audience
consisting of network operators and systems administrators, in the
telecommunications field.

At home: I write non-fiction SF and fantasy media tie-in books (The
Official Guide to the X-Files, etc.), science fiction poetry, science
fiction prose, and teleplays.

>.....and to keep this truly scientific......

>3. Are you a dog person or a cat person?

Dunno. Three cats, one dog. The dog is bigger than all three cats together,
but the cats are meaner. Go figure.
