I currently live in St. Louis, Missouri, though I have planted my butt in other parts of the country (including Washington, Oregon, Boston, Vermont, Arizona, and San Francisco). My focus has been on books about technology, but I'm currently working in other topics such animal welfare, the environment, sustainable agriculture (including issues related to food safety), and bad politics. But then, everyone writes about bad politics.
At this moment, I'm finishing a book titled "Ringling Brothers: The Greatest Show in Court". It's about the 13+ court battle between Feld Entertainment (parent to the Ringling Brothers circus) and various animal welfare groups. The court cases that form the basis for the book are centered around elephants performing in circuses. The book has thrills, chills, accusations of conspiracy, and fascinating trips through our legal and regulatory systems. Oh, and elephants. Lots of elephants.
All my non-tech books will be self-published, as well as some newer works related to technology. More on these in the near future.
