Freelance Technical Writing and Computer Training

Freelance Technical Writing

Elaine Marmel spends most of her working time as a freelance technical writer. She was a contributing editor to monthly magazines PeachtreeExtra and QuickBooksExtra from 1994 to 2006. She has authored and co-authored more than 80 books about computers in general and a wide variety of software packages such as Microsoft Project, Microsoft Windows, and Microsoft Office. She used her business and accounting background to write books on Peachtree (now Sage 50), QuickBooks, QuickBooks Online, Quicken for Windows, and Quicken for DOS. From the Publication List link above, you can download a complete list of books...or you can search for Elaine Marmel at to get a pretty accurate list of her most recently published books. 




Elaine established Marmel Enterprises initially to provide training on basic computer software packages. Before establishing the business, Elaine worked on projects to build computerized financial management systems for New York City and Washington, D.C. and trained folks to use these systems. Using this prior experience, Elaine broadened her training spectrum to include helping small businesses implement computerized accounting systems. And, she helped many of those businesses link Timeslips, the time and billing package used widely by consultants, attorneys, accountants, and architects, to their accounting systems.
