Being a software developer type in a prior life, I confess that I couldn't resist designing my own author web site. So that's what I did. Guess what? It showed. Particularly because, as a SW developer, I couldn't bring myself to use any of the pre-canned packages that make assembling a web site a snap. Nope. Not me. I had to roll my own from scratch using an earlier generation of Microsoft Publisher.
Those days are done. I acquired some help. The Todd Thorne site now has a fabulous and slick new look-and-feel.
