James T. Hawes

Technical Writing

Mr. Hawes' background involves technical writing for high-tech applications, particularly computers and electronics.

He is an internationally published author and editor. His works include technical manuals, magazine articles, exploded-view parts catalogs, videos, schematic sets and CDs. He's managed print or electronic production for most of these projects. Another aspect of his background is development of third-party production sources. He's also created help screens for the gaming industry.

  • If you purchase a broadband ADSL router, a Hawes instruction manual might come with it. Mr. Hawes wrote and edited print and html manuals for a U.S. Robotics router. He also coordinated overseas production of the printed manual.

  • If you need to look up something on your Compton's Encyclopedia CD, think of Mr. Hawes. He's a contributing author.

  • Maybe you recently had a chest x-ray. A Hawes service manual probably helped a technician to maintain the x-ray machine.

  • Do you play video lottery terminal games? Then you may have consulted Mr. Hawes' illustrated help screens!

  • For four years, Mr. Hawes penned an amateur television column for Spec-Com Journal.
