I had the pleasure of being a panelist along with Laura Leventhal, Marty Gage, and Spencer Murrell at the UX Akron and OhioUX Roundtable entitled "Ohio UX Authors". During the discussion, the authors were interviewed by librarian Jennifer Stencel who asked thought-provoking questions. She discovered why we decided to create the books, how we wrote them, and what we plan to do to improve them.
