If Shannon didn’t have to be an adult with a grown-up job, she would be a professional gypsy and travel the world. Instead she takes really long vacations and dreams of the day when she can be a professional back-packer, book-reader, and hammock-swinger. She likes crossword puzzles, detective stories with quirky protagonists and is the proud mama of two gorgeous, brown rescue dogs.

Vic is about as close to a professional traveler as you can get. For the last five years charter boats, odd jobs, and an urge to keep moving have taken him around the world and back. Vic enjoys new experiences, new people, and seeing what happens when he takes the word “no” out of his vocabulary. When he’s not hiking, spear fishing, or hunting back at home, he’s eating, or dreaming about eating, meat on a stick with a cold Chang (Thai beer) to wash it down.
Vic’s Favorite of the Moment:
City: Galway, Ireland
Band: too many… couldn’t live without music
Beer: Guinness (the real stuff you can only get in Ireland)

Christine Robinson wrote her first book, “Things I Have Said That Are Funny” at the young age of nine. Despite the fame and fortune this brought her around the house, she went on to acquire a BA in English, minoring in Art and Literature. She spends her time camping on her front lawn, shooting guns at paint-filled balloons and encouraging people to name songs after her. She has just returned from a short stint studying in Barcelona, Spain with the University of Iowa and cares to continue educating herself from New York City.
