Thearon Willis is the author of Beginning SQL Server 2000 and Beginning SQL Server 97 for VB Developers. He began his career in computers in 1980 as a computer operator. During the fall of 1980 he took a course in BASIC programming using the Radio Shack TSR-80 computer and has been hooked on programming ever since.

Thearon first began working with Visual Basic in version 3.0. After version 4 was released he switched his career from the mainframe to client server development. He still enjoys working with relational databases and uses SQL Server as the back end to all of his applications that store and retrieve data.

He currently works as a senior consultant and develops Intranet/Internet and business-to-business applications.
