Scott Calamar started his editorial career at local weekly newspapers in the late 1970s, and he was among the first in the technical writing industry, contributing light-hearted tutorial articles to computer magazines in the early 1980s. He then served as editor-in-chief of a ground-breaking computer book company, and went on to start his own book packaging company in 1995, which he still runs. His skills include editing, writing, developing, and publishing books, newspapers, magazines, software, subscription cards, and websites. These days, Scott edits and develops both fiction and non-fiction titles, enjoying the variety of different genres. He is also a songwriter and performing musician in Southern Oregon, where he occasionally writes for local newspapers.
