Short biography
ELLIE MATHEWS holds a degree in geography from the University of
Washington with emphasis on cartography and graphic arts. Her illustrations
have appeared in books, magazines, newspapers, instructional videos, and
courtroom graphics. Later, she linked her interests in graphics with software
development; she designed the appearance of automated mapping, graphing,
and presentation systems. She taught short courses in Graphic Design,
Statistics Illustration, and Principles of Computer Graphics. She authored The
Presentation Design Book (Ventana Press) and published articles on digital type,
presentation graphics, and color mechanics. She worked for her own company,
for Florida Computer Graphics, Tektronix, and Aldus (now Adobe). Mathews
has developed illustrations for trials involving employment data, construction
timelines, scene-of-the-crime diagrams, and medical malpractice allegations.
She has produced maps for city, county, state, and federal agencies as well as
private entities.

Then she put all that aside and became a writer.

Some people think that winning a $1,000,000 annuity in Pillsbury's famous
Bake-Off is Ellie's greatest moment, but she puts more weight on being a mother
and a grandmother. After that she counts her publications among life's
accomplishments. The Pillsbury win was a stroke of good luck, pure and simple.
Very good luck indeed. (From the author's website: elliemathews.com)
