I'm an elected moderator on Mi Yodeya and The Workplace, and a pro-tempore mod here on Writers. I'm pretty active on the SE network.

Professionally, I'm a technical writer who works with (and often helps design) programming interfaces. I've written programming guides, tutorials, reference applications (runnable examples), reference documentation (for Java, C++, C, SOAP, and REST APIs), and even a little user documentation. I'd love to see more technical-writing questions here on Writers!

A word of warning: if you are interested in the Biblical Hermeneutics site, I urge you to consider these words from a non-Christian who went down that path. They want people to help build their site (which they say is non-religious), but they allow Christian evangelism and presumption, quite a bit of it. Learn from another's mistake.

revised How can I (as a new author) publish a collection of essays?
fixed some formatting and focused the question more; discussion-forum "has anybody done this?" questions aren't a good fit, and it's better to focus on your actual problem
