Writer: ecrivien (masculine), or ecrivienne (femininine)
Accent ague on first e for both.
Pronounced (ay-cree-vee-en) or (ay-cree-vee-ennn)

I'd say "ecrivienne des choses <whatever the word for 'technical' is>".
Literaaly, that's "Writer of things technical", which approximates the grammar
a French speaker would use.

BTW, "computer" is "ordinateur" (or-dih-nah-tur); "book" is "livre" (lee-vruh).
Not sure about "manual" or "software"

Have fun in France. Unless your French is pretty good, you won't get much of a
chance to talk about what you do for a living. Although many French speak
English, I discovered most prefer not to.
