Yvonne Johnson has been writing computer books and teaching computer classes since 1982. She has delivered classroom training on computer applications to thousands of employees of large and small businesses, military and government personnel, teachers, attorneys, secretaries, and, yes, even Microsoft software support engineers. She has written more than 65 computer books for well-known publishers, including Que Publishing and other imprints of Pearson Education.
She started the first proprietary computer training school in Kentucky and operated it for 12 years. During that time, she wrote the curricula for all the software programs taught at the school. After selling the school, she worked as a freelance computer curriculum developer and developed a large percent of the curricula offered by the national training company Productivity Point International, headquartered in Chicago. She also wrote and trained extensively for the national consulting firm of PerfectAccess-Speer, headquartered in New York City, a subsidiary of the Washington Post. Ultimately, she took the position of vice president with PerfectAccess-Speer, where she became the head of the Curriculum Development Department. She’s been designing websites for years, and currently she is writing a book on Office 2011 for Macintosh for Pearson.
