Andy started writing for FoxTalk magazine when he became the co-author of the monthly Kitbox column in April of 1998. Together with his friend and colleague, Paul Maskens, he wrote a total of 40 articles. Beginning in December, 2001, Marcia took over from Paul and she and Andy wrote the column until July 2006. They wrote their dialog style column on a regular basis for The Advisor Guide to Visual FoxPro from August 2006 through the end of 2007. They now write their column in Rainer Becker's new Visual FoxPro publication, FoxRockX.   In addition to the Kitbox column, Marcia also wrote "Programming to Interface Rather Than Implementation" for the March 2001 issue of FoxTalk magazine.
