Anne Milkovich used her fifteen years as a manager at companies like Microsoft and Adobe to create a one-stop, top-to-bottom management training manual. Everything in one book from someone who's been there. Karin Carter's interest in combining language and business led her far away from her California roots, first to a summer job in French-speaking Tunisia, then to a job in France, and finally to Seattle. A move to the east side of Lake Washington led to her dropping her resume at tiny Microsoft. Hired as a trilingual administrative assistant in the International group, she moved to a role where she helped produce user documentation for foreign-language manuals. After spending eight years in the International group doing book production, quality assurance, training, and management, she moved to the English-speaking side of the company. Her roles there included editing and management. She has an entrepreneurial streak: while working at Microsoft she created side businesses for desktop publishing, freelance editing, contemporary quilt making, and creating and selling greeting cards. She joined a blackjack team made up of Microsoft programmers and learned to count cards. She taught herself to trade options (puts and calls) and has played the stock market profitably since 1995. These days she might be found quilting, nailing fabric to a piece of found wood, sewing on paper bags, learning to draw and paint, or continuing with other entrepreneurial adventures.
