Kevin Brusie photo by Sharon Brusie Contributors 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 environ- mental 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 Jessie C. Grearson Jessie Grearson ("Listening With," page 72) 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 (Swaying: Essays on Intercultural Love and Love in a Global Village: A Celebration of Intercultural Families) published by the University of Iowa Press. She is currently at work on a practical handbook on college essay writing tentatively titled Irresistible You. When not writing, teaching, or coaching her high school speech team, she can be found visiting lighthouses, searching for sea glass, or in her kitchen garden, dreaming up new recipes. Susie Wilde Susie Wilde (Kimberly Brubaker Bradley profile, page 62) has reviewed for magazines and papers across the country for 35 years. When not reviewing, she's sharing stories with children and with adults who love children's books. She's usually sporting headphones as she listens nonstop to adult and children's audiobooks. Candace Levy AudioFile Contributing Editor Candace Levy is a full-time freelance book editor as well as a book reviewer and jour- nalist. 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 new column on AudioFile's blog: Take 5 with Candace. Aurelia C. Scott Aurelia C. Scott (Alyssa Bresnahan profile, page 40) loves being an AudioFile Contributing Editor because she is able to hear a wanton number of audiobooks and interview occa- sionally 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 novels about a 19th-century scientist's adventures among the world's legendary and mythical creatures.
