Subject: RE: 10.0670 computers and writing

One commercially successful author active in computing (word processing and on
the Net etc.) is Terry Pratchett ... I quote from one of the two web pages
referenced below:

"Terry Pratchett was born in 1948 and is still not dead. In 1965 he started to
work as a journalist. Then he became press officer for four nuclear power
stations but, 1987 he quit since it was much more enjoyable to write the
Discworld series. He also writes books for younger people. Terry lives in
Wiltshire, UK, with his wife Lyn and daughter Rhianna. His mail-address
is: TerryP@unseen.demon.co.uk

His books leap out at you from EVERY bookshop in the UK ... and probably out
of all bedrooms of schoolboys who read.
