Natanya Pitts' Bio


Natanya Pitts is a writer, trainer, and WebMaster. She is currently a full-time trainer and courseware developer for Pervasive Software Inc., an Austin-based database development organization. In addition to her day job Natanya is also involved in the research and writing of Web- and HTML-related books, and the development of related Internet- and networking training materials. "The Official BBEdit Book" (principal author: Bob LeVitus, ZD Press, 1997) is her authorial debut, but her ghostwriting credits include "Webmaster Macintosh," with Bob LeVitus and Jeff Evans, and the "Hip Pocket Guide to HTML 3.2" by Ed Tittel and James Michael Stewart. A 2nd edition of the "Hip Pocket Guide," with Natanya as an accredited author, was completed for IDG in December, 1997. Natanya is also the principal author of "The HTML Style Sheets Design Guide" from The Coriolis Group (September, 1997). Her more recent writing activities have focused on the latest and greatest Web trend -- XML. She is the principal author of "The XML Black Book" for The Coriolis Group (November, 1998) and the sole author of "XML In Record Time" for Sybex (December, 1998). Her current efforts are directed -- with Bob LeVitus and Robby Anderson -- towards the development of "Tango for Dummies" and "Tango Bible" both for IDG due out in Fall, 1999 and Spring, 2000 respectively.

In February, 1997 Ms. Pitts began teaching HTML and Web design classes at Austin Community College (ACC). Her courses, which include classes on "Beginning HTML," "Intermediate HTML," and a variety of advanced HTML topics (including Frames, Shockwave, and Animation techniques), have become so popular it looks like she has a guarantee of lifetime employment! She has also spearheaded LANWright's push into Web-based versions of these same training courses. Natanya teaches a classes on a variety of subjects from Dynamic HTML to XML at conferences around the country including MacWorld and Hewlett Packard World.

Prior to her employment at LANWrights in 1996, Natanya was the WebMaster for Southwest Educational Development Laboratory, an educational research institution and think tank, where she also mastered educational CDs, and helped affiliate institutions with their Web sites.

When Natanya's not attached at the hip, or rather wrist, to her computer, Natanya enjoys two-steppin', reading, working out, and complicating her husband's life. The happy couple is anxiously awaiting the birth of their first child in September, 1999. The arrival of the precious bundle promises something of a change in lifestyle ahead, but it's nothing that an aspiring "Queen of the Universe" can't handle!
