About the author (2003)

Before focusing on her career as an educator and author, Linda L. French, CMA-C, NCICS, CPC, worked for 15 years in a variety of physician office settings as a clinical and administrative medical assistant, medical insurance biller, and office manager. She is a Certified Medical Assistant--Clinical Specialist (AAMA), Nationally Certified Insurance & Coding Specialist (NCCT), and a Certified Professional Coder (AAPC). French has served as an educator for more than 10 years, teaching allied health courses at community colleges, adult schools, post-secondary institutions, and private corporations through UCSB-Extend. Additionally, she has also served as a consultant for physicians and provided customized employee training for a private billing service.

Karen Hawkins was raised in Tennessee, a member of a huge extended family that included her brother and sister, an adopted sister, numerous foster siblings, and various exchange students. In order to escape the chaos (and while hiding when it was her turn to do the dishes), she would huddle under the comforter on her bed with a flashlight and a book, a habit she still embraces to this day.
