June 1 I doubt that I would be starting this diary if it werenOCOt for laptops. I had a maiden aunt who gave me a pretty, red, imitation-leather notebook with OC My DiaryOCO embossed in gold on the cover. She said every girl should start one at age eleven. If I remember right, I wrote the date on the first page and immediately lost the book. IOCOm not too likely to lose this laptop, since itOCOs my bread and butter. And, because I regularly send my programming back to the office, IOCOll be uploading these words to my own personal files back there OCo encrypted, of course. Ah, the joys of modern technology.The only tradition IOCOm going to adhere to is in treating you like a person, Dear Diary. So let me tell you who I am before I start telling you all my secrets. IOCOm Elizabeth Axelrood, better known as Liz to all my friends. IOCOm now all of twenty-five, a business success and, while not a personal winner, at least I wouldnOCOt classify myself as a loser in that respect, either. I majored in psychology in college, and my mom and dad assumed IOCOd go on in that field, but computers fascinated me. Much against the wishes of my folks, I quit before graduation and went into programming. ThatOCOs how I met my ex-husband. We started our own company, Ax-cell Learning Inc., got into educational software on the ground floor, and have been running to stay ahead of demand ever since. Now, I suppose you want to know about Gordon Axelrood, and what happened between us.... Thirty-five short stories about love, romance and relationships by John Broussard. Boson Books also offers several mysteries by John Broussard. Visit our fiction page. For an author bio, photo, and a sample read visit www.bosonbooks.com."
