When not laboring in his secret identity of a mild-mannered software developer, Elliotte Rusty Harold lives in a secret mountaintop laboratory on a large island off the East Coast of the United States with his wife Beth and dog Thor. He’s an avid birder and insect photographer. He’s also written over twenty developer books for various publishers including Addison-Wesley, O'Reilly, Wiley, and Prentice Hall. His most recent books are Java Network Programming, 4th edition, and JavaMail API, both from O’Reilly.
