Contributors Sonja Cole As a former middle school librarian and author of Booktalking Around the World: Great Global Reads for Ages 9-14, Sonja's mission is to get kids excited about books. For her, a perfect day includes knitting while listening to a brilliantly performed audiobook. In addition to reviewing, Sonja also writes about children and family listening on AudioFile's blog. See her piece "7 Kids' Audiobooks About Autism" on page 68. Emily Connelly Assistant Editor Emily Connelly (Nnedi Okorafor profile, page 52) enjoys working with AudioFile's wonderful team of reviewers. She is a former wildlife biologist, an avid reader, and a parent to two book-loving little kids. Emily first discovered audiobooks as a child at her local library and now loves to take her children into the Portland Public Library for armloads of books—and audiobooks, naturally. She is balancing her work coordinating reviewers, managing AudioFile's blog, and contributing to AudioFile's podcast with earning an MLIS degree. Candace Levy Contributing Editor Candace Levy ("5 Questions with Kirsten Potter," page 36) is a full-time freelance book editor as well as a book reviewer and journalist. When she's not working, you'll inevitably find her listening to an audiobook while cooking, walking, making lace, or taking photo- graphs. She was honored to be the 2016 Audio Publishers Association's Audiobook Blogger of the Year. Look for her "Take 5 with Candace" column on AudioFile's blog: Randy O'Brien Randy O'Brien (Jason Culp profile, page 22) has been a reviewer for AudioFile since 2003. He is a veteran journalist and anchor for WLAC-AM and Rock 105.9 in Nashville, Tennessee. He's working on a new novel that he is hoping to self-publish in the near future. Marti Stone Marti Stone ("Listening With" photo, page 72) is a pho- tographer based in Rockport, Maine.
