From Techie to Fiction Writer

It seems that uber-techie Mark Russinovich has turned to fiction writing.

His name is usually associated with the Sysinternals suite of tools and his infrequent blog posts are always worth a read because of the incredible detail they contain. But, will either of those talents translate to the pages of a book?

Mark cites Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton as authors whose style he feels is close to his own. Expect then a high level of detail in the narrative. (If I ever took up fiction writing, I would probably end up exhibiting a similar style.)

I look forward to having a read although I hope that it doesn’t date too quickly.

Michael is a Senior Consultant for Xtravirt. If it's got buttons or flashy lights on it then it'll probably be on his radar. When not "mending computers" (it's sometimes easier than explaining "cloud" to relatives), Michael provides essential education, entertainment and trampoline services to his two children.
