Aurelia C. Scott Aurelia C. Scott (Kate Atkinson profile, page 34) loves being an AudioFile Contributing Editor because she is able to hear a wanton number of audiobooks and interview occasion- ally wanton authors and narrators. Aurelia also writes the "Aurelia's Audio Adventures" column on AudioFile's blog, posted twice a month ( category/aurelias-audio-adventures). Herself the author of an award-winning nonfiction book about competitive rose gardeners, Aurelia is writing the first in a series of nov- els about a nineteenth-century scientist's adventures among the world's legendary and mythical creatures. In between, she is writing a memoir of women and lingerie. Caitlin Augusta Contributing Editor Caitlin Augusta ("Tease," page 30) is a librarian at the Stratford Library in Connecticut. She has reviewed for AudioFile since 2006 and judged for The Audies since 2010. She is a longtime Jane Austen fan and romance reader who loves the variety of memorable characters, talented narrators, and happy endings found in romance audio. Jessie C. Grearson Jessie Grearson (Nicol Zanzarella profile, page 46) is a freelance writer and a writing teacher living in Falmouth, Maine. A graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop, she has co-authored two essay collections and is currently at work on a practical handbook on college essay writing. When not writing, teaching, or coaching her high school speech team, she can be found visiting lighthouses, searching for sea glass, or in her garden, dreaming up new recipes. Tom Walken Contributing Editor Tom Walken ("Learning By Ear," page 54) began writing reviews for AudioFile in the mid- 1990s while he was still practicing clinical psychology. His "Learning By Ear" column started a short time later. He says the many audios he's heard on personal growth and busi- ness topics have kept him current on how people can make their lives better. From his adopted home in Raleigh, NC, the Baltimore native now works with entrepreneurs, evalu- ates executive candidates, and spends his free time cooking, playing music, and enjoying his friends and family.
