Award-winning author Clayton Walnum started programming computers in 1982, when he traded in an IBM Selectric typewriter to buy an Atari 400 computer (16K of RAM!). Clay soon learned to combine his interest in writing with his newly acquired programming skills and started selling programs and articles to computer magazines. In 1985, ANALOG Computing, a nationally-distributed computer magazine, hired him as a technical editor, and before leaving the magazine business in 1989 to become a freelance writer, Clay had worked his way up to executive editor. He has since acquired a degree in computer science and has written more than 40 books (translated into many languages) covering everything from computer gaming to 3D graphics programming. He's also written hundreds of magazine articles and software reviews as well as countless programs. His recent books include The Complete Idiot's Guide to Visual Basic 6 and Teach Yourself Game Programming with Visual Basic in 21 Days. Clay's biggest disappointment in life is that he wasn't one of the Beatles. To compensate, he writes and records rock music in his home studio.
