Contributors Caitlin Augusta Contributing Editor Caitlin Augusta (Lauren Blakely profile, page 36, and "Tease," page 36) 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 (Andrea Parsneau profile, page 52) 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 Narrator Susan Ericksen," page 28, and "5 Questions with Narrator Santino Fontana," page 58) 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 photographs. 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: Aurelia C. Scott Aurelia C. Scott (Julia Alvarez profile, page 22) loves being an AudioFile Contributing Editor because she is able to hear a wanton number of audiobooks and interview occasionally wanton authors and narrators. Aurelia also writes the "Aurelia's Audio Adventures" column on AudioFile's blog ( 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 novels about a nineteenth-century scientist's adventures among the world's legendary and mythical creatures. She is also writing a memoir of women and lingerie. Tom Walken Contributing Editor Tom Walken ("Learning By Ear," page 48) 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 business 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, evaluates executive candidates, and spends his free time cook- ing, playing music, and enjoying his friends and family. 6 n AudioFile/ Tom Walken Candace Levy Jessie Grearson Caitlin Augusta Aurelia Scott
