Kevin Brusie photo by Sharyn Brusie Contributors Caitlin Augusta Contributing Editor Caitlin Augusta ("Tease," page 38) 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, tal- ented narrators, and happy endings found in romance audio. Kevin Brusie Kevin Brusie ("Listening With" photo, page 72) has a passion for capturing images, and he's photographed many listeners for AudioFile over the years. His goal when creating an environmental portrait is an exchange—"I give my vision: lighting, perspective, experience. The subject presents their true self, no façades." More of his work can be seen at 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 review- ing, Sonja also writes about children and family listening on AudioFile's blog. See her "In the Studio" interview with Jarrett J. Krosoczka on page 60. Jessie C. Grearson Jessie Grearson (Daniel José Older profile, page 22) 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. Candace Levy Contributing Editor Candace Levy ("5 Questions with Michael Kramer," page 32, and "5 Questions with Robert Petkoff," page 44) 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.
