After raising a family, George Matthew Cole lives with his wife and dog in Burien, Washington. His career, that spans over thirty years, has been exclusively in the field of computing. He has worked with mainframe computers as well as PCs and servers. "Flashmath for Windows 95" is a flash card program written by Mr. Cole many years ago. It is still in use today. The idea for George's first novel, "Colt O'brien Sees the Light", came from personal experience working with high school students over a two year period.
