Lolita Mannik graduated from The Ohio State University with distinction in Physics, Honors in the Liberal Arts, and a minor in Russian language. She had always intended on going into espionage but got too attached to her dog and decided against a life of constant travel. She’s written software manuals and established an engineering documentation department for a high-tech R&D firm, which included writing assembly manuals and user guides, and taking the company through ISO 9000 certification. Lolita is an active member of the Society for Technical Communication and headed the special interest group for contractors and independent consultants in Denver. In her free time, she loves long distance running and spending time with her family (and dog) outside.
