Several of you have asked who I am. Good question.
I started Flora's Hideout in December of 1995. I had just quit my job at Enterprise Rent-a-Car and had no idea what to do with myself other than wait for graduate school at Sac State to start in September. My husband suggested I learn HTML and a create a little Web page. Little did he know then that Flora's Hideout would grow into what it is today.
During the summer of 1998, I registered my domain name and www.floras-hideout.com was born. I also left my technical writing job at the CHP and began working for InfoPros. They placed me at Intel in February, 1999, where I worked on technical writing and Web development projects. In February 2000, I left InfoPros to be a senior technical writer at Realty Plus Online (which was later bought out by First American Corporation) where I was the lead writer for a product called CloseYourDeal.com. I can now say that I experienced the dot-com frenzy! But enough of that. As of May 2001, I became a Learning Products engineer (aka project lead/senior technical writer) for Hewlett-Packard in the storage division.
For the record, Flora's Hideout is not a corporation or a business. I'm also not an expert chef. I just happen to enjoy baking desserts and I try to round out my meals with some healthy foods every once in a while.
Thanks for visiting my page and I hope to see you again!
