Tanya Clark – Tanya is a Los Angeles native who loves living in a sunlit clime where she can drive to the beach for breakfast, the mountains for lunch, and the desert for dinner. She’s a freelance writer, therapist, and educator. On vacation, she likes to tour author’s homes, local zoos, and fresh farmer’s markets. She loves the Lakers, watercolor, daytime dramas, and every cat she’s ever met (almost!). “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” Lao Tzu.

Kelley Schepper – What started as a passion is now Kelley’s full career – writing. With a love for the written word that dates back to her childhood, Kelley enjoys expressing herself and sharing her views with others. Between being a mother of three and expanding her reach as a writer, Kelley has little time for other activities. However, she makes sure to spend time doing other things she loves, such as crafting, restoring furniture, and visiting new and exciting destinations.

Stephanie Seabrooke – Stephanie is a writer, wine lover, and pet wrangler, though not necessarily in that order. She enjoys satin sheets, scary movies, a good pen, and bizarre foods. On any given day you can catch Stephanie staring out of the closest window in a melancholy stupor, dreaming of faraway lands.

Olivia Lynch – Olivia now lives on the beautiful wild west coast of Ireland, having traveled the world wide and far. She spends her time writing about our beautiful planet and its people and blogging about all things human on her own blog and for many other online publications.

Marlene Ridgway – Recently a college graduate, I look for every opportunity to travel and share my adventures through writing. Writing and traveling are two passions that I love to combine. One day I hope to have a collection of stamps on my passport and to swim in every ocean. I also hope to one day live in New York City where I can adventure all day and write all night.

Laura Grace Tarpley – Laura is a writer and teacher who currently lives in Shenzhen, China. In her free time, she enjoys tinkering with crossword puzzles, hiking, and taking naps on her huge couch. Check her out on Twitter @lgtarpley or on her website.

Cara Harrington – Cara is the jack of all trades. She started in fashion, but found her true passion in writing. After mixing the two into a fabulous cocktail of freelance writing about all things style, she started a family. Her 3 kids keep her Prada pumps moving as they explore the world one adventure at a time.

Kitty Bradshaw – Kitty is an Online Influencer and Web Socialite that has been blogging for over 16 years. Upon moving to New York, she created a new, local blog which evolved into an online business called KittyBradshaw.com, and has since branded herself across the web. Over the last 5 years she has used the name Kitty Bradshaw to broker contracts and brand ambassadorships with Gap, Toyota, and currently Best Buy Electronics and General Motors. Kitty has written for the Wendy Williams Show blog, hosted events for McDonald’s Corporation, and Johnson & Johnson. She has also worked with Bacardi Mixers, which led to her own signature drink called “The Kitty Bradshaw”. Black Enterprise featured Bradshaw as one of the top African American bloggers in the country, and she was recently featured on Technorati. Bradshaw’s motto is, “Conquer New York, conquer the world.”

Julee Ho – Julee is a lover of all things edible and is willing to travel far and wide to find the best of the best. Born in Vietnam, Julee’s travels have taken her to the tropical island of Oahu, the bustling streets of Manhattan, and the growing suburbia that is Orange County where she currently resides. When she’s not eating, traveling, or writing, she loves to cuddle up with her two pups Crouton and Truffles.

Julie Zelco – Julie was born and raised on The Big Island of Hawaii, which despite its name can feel pretty small sometimes.  When she was five and learned to read she found her passion in the written word; however, if she wasn’t a writer she would be a Detective because she is convinced she could break anyone in the interrogation room.  If you don’t believe her just ask her husband because he may or may not have seen her in action a time or two.  By far she considers her best accomplishments her three children who fill her life with both love and endless chaos.  There is not much she is completely certain of but she knows with an unwavering certainty that she is going to be one of the mothers who will one day suffer from empty nest syndrome and is preparing accordingly.  When she is not writing she prefers to live her life the old-fashioned way – offline.

Siyana Riley I’m a writer who has traveled across the world, sometimes on vacation and sometimes because I’m dragged. I was born in the US, grew up in Dubai and California, and have spent most of my life scribbling random things on paper. Now that I’ve graduated college, I look to inspire more people to travel around the world and learn about different cultures. Favorite places to visit: Dubai, New York City [always!], London, Barcelona, Goa, Romania, Bruges, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuwait, South Africa, and Rio de Janeiro. My goal is to visit every country in the world before I turn 60, so let’s see how far I’m able to achieve that goal.
