Bonnie Biafore has always been fascinated with math in its practical and more esoteric forms. As an engineer and project manager, she's thorough and steadfastly attentive to detail but redeems herself by using her sick sense of humor to transform drool-inducing subjects into entertaining reading. She writes about project management, accounting, investing, personal finance, and technology. Her books, Successful Project Management and NAIC Stock Selection Handbook, won major awards from the Society of Technical Communication, although she appreciates the rave she receives from readers much more.

Bonnie is the award-wining author of more than 25 books including QuickBooks: The Missing Manual (now Intuit's Official Guide to QuickBooks), Project: The Missing Manual, and Online Investing Hacks. She has also published her first comedic crime novel, Fresh Squeezed. She writes a monthly column called "WebWatch" for Better Investing magazine and is a regular contributor to As a consultant, she manages projects for clients and wins accolades for her ability to herd cats.
