Dallas G. Releford was born in Central Kentucky. He attended school there until he was seventeen. At that young age, he ventured to San Francisco, California in 1964 to pursue his educational objectives. His greatest objective was to be a writer and he had been writing at every opportunity since he first discovered books.
While in California, he studied business, office occupations, electronics, computers and took every English and writing course that he could. He worked as a photographer, reporter for a small local newspaper and even worked as a disc-jockey in a local radio station. Working at whatever he could find to get enough money to continue his education became the normal mode of operations for him over the years.
In 1968, he moved to Cincinnati and worked several jobs there until he met his wife, Sharon in 1983. Within a few years, he earned his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Masters of Science in Management Information Systems and several other degrees. During this time he was working in the computer field more frequently and even worked part-time as a computer consultant.
The next several years saw him writing more and he even finished a full-length novel that he started in 1962. This book, Something Whispers was published finally in the year 2000.
Since that time, he has worked as a writer, technical editor, reviewer, consultant and just about everything else in the publishing field. At present, he has worked on over 80 books on computers for such companies as Macmillan, Sybex and many smaller companies. He has published over thirty full-length articles on everything from computers to how to set up a solar powered house suitable for the year 2000. He has plans for six more novels but has been too busy working for Macmillan to pursue them, presently.
He currently lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with his wife, Sharon. His hobbies are computers, astronomy, electronics, photography and Linux.
