A Message from Susan J. Owens

The latest breakthroughs in technology have the potential they have to make our lives more productive, efficient and uncomplicated. I realize not everyone shares this enthusiasm. As a writer, I focus on taking some of the mystery out of technology so that others will not feel so intimated and become willing to try something new.
