A graduate of Dartmouth College, Nick grew up in Paris. He resides in foggy San Francisco with his wife Krista and their son Erik. More here.

Amy Hale Auker writes and thrives on a ranch in Arizona where she is having a love affair with rock, mountains, piñon and juniper forests, the weather, and her songwriter husband who is also foreman of the ranch.  She is the author of four books including Ordinary Skin: Essays from Willow Springs, released by Texas Tech University Press in June.
