Doug Lowe has been writing computer books since 1981, including nearly 40 For Dummies books, among them PowerPoint 2007 For Dummies and Word 2007 All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies. He lives in sunny Fresno, California, where the motto is “Fres-YES!,” (unfortunately, that’s true) with his wife, the youngest of his three daughters, and a couple of dogs (a goofylooking six-month-old Shar-Pei/Black Lab mix named Lucy and a yellow lab named Odie). He’s one of those obsessive-compulsive decorating nuts who creates computer-controlled Halloween decorations that rival Disney’s Haunted Mansion.
