"In this exclusive Linux Pro Magazine interview, tell-it-like-it-is, Linux Today editor Carla Schroder talks about her latest book, The Book of Audacity , shares facts about herself you won't find anywhere else, a peek into her current projects, and offers advice for women on making their own paths, encouraging children, and more.

"Linux Pro Magazine: Can you tell readers a little about you, your relationship to the Audacity project, and how you got started using Audacity?

"Carla Schroder: I'll start off with my favorite subject, me. I've always been good with my hands, the classic tinkerer taking things apart to figure out how they work. And of course putting them back together, sometimes in better ways. (And sometimes not!) I used to be able to diagnose and repair cars, back in the olden days before they were computerized, I'm a decent carpenter, and once upon a time I worked as a massage therapist. Like a lot of people I have the kinds of hands that know things—I can touch something, look at it, study it, feel it, and learn about it. I can learn how to do just about anything; just give me some instructions and tools and get out of my way."

Hey, that's me! --ed.
