Roland Hughes started his IT career in the early 1980s. He quickly became a consultant and president of Logikal Solutions, a software consulting firm specializing in OpenVMS application and C++/Qt touchscreen/embedded Linux development. Early in his career he became involved in what is now called cross platform development. Given the dearth of useful books on the subject he ventured into the world of professional author in 1995 writing the first of the "Zinc It!" book series for John Gordon Burke Publisher, Inc. http://www.kilibro.com/books/0934272395/zinc-it
A decade later he released a massive (nearly 800 pages) tome "The Minimum You Need to Know to Be an OpenVMS Application Developer" http://www.worldcat.org/title/minimum-you-need-to-know-to-be-an-openvms-application-developer/oclc/76032459&referer=brief_results which tried to encapsulate the essential skills gained over what was nearly a 20 year career at that point. From there "The Minimum You Need to Know" book series was born. http://www.theminimumyouneedtoknow.com.
Three years later he wrote his first novel "Infinite Exposure" http://www.infiniteexposure.net which got much notice from people involved in the banking and financial security worlds. Some of the attacks predicted in that book have since come to pass. While it was not originally intended to be a trilogy, it became the first book of "The Earth That Was" trilogy.

Lesedi - in his country his name means 'the light' though he has never chosen to walk in it. A man who has been driven by duty to himself now finds he must carry out one final duty for a country which isn't even his. He has finally learned the meaning of a phrase he had uttered much of his life "sucks to be you."
