Marmel Enterprises, LLC

Marmel Enterprises, LLC, is an organization that specializes in technical writing and training. Elaine Marmel has been President of Marmel Enterprises since she founded the business in 1988. Elaine has an MBA from Cornell University and worked on projects to build financial management systems for New York City and Washington, D.C. and train users to use these systems. This prior experience provided the foundation for Marmel Enterprises, LLC to help small businesses implement computerized accounting systems, with a focus on Timeslips, the time and billing package used widely by consultants, attorneys, accountants, and architects.

Elaine left her native Chicago for the warmer climes of Arizona (by way of Cincinnati, OH; Jerusalem, Israel; Ithaca, NY; Washington, D.C. and Tampa, FL) where she basks in the sun with her PC and her dog, Jack. She enjoys cross-stitching; she's currently in her "patriotic period," having recently finished the Gettysburg Address, but enjoys all kinds of cross-stitch themes, from samplers to pictures. And she enjoys listening to music of all kinds, but especially four-part harmony, which she sang for many years as part of the Toast of Tampa Show Chorus and the Scottsdale Chorus, both International Champions of Sweet Adelines International.

Elaine spends most of her time writing; she was a contributing editor to PeachtreeExtra and QuickBooksExtra, monthly magazines from 1994 to 2006. She is the author of the Microsoft Project Bible and has authored and co-authored more than 75 books about computers in general and software such as Microsoft Project, Windows, Peachtree, QuickBooks, Quicken for Windows, Quicken for DOS, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word for Windows, Microsoft Word for the Mac, 1-2-3 for Windows, and Lotus Notes among others.

When she's not writing, Elaine trains others on the use of software packages, even some about which she hasn't written books.
