After several years of visiting Ireland on vacation - once with her sister Kate, sometimes with friends, but more often solo - she moved to Galway in 2004 to participate in the masters program in writing at the National University of Ireland.Camille thoroughly enjoys writing about all that Ireland has to offer: making 10-pointed K-turns on back country roads, drinking a pint of Bulmers (no Guinness, thank you) at the corner pub, and typing up the day's experiences in B&B rooms with faded floral wallpaper. She is also the co-author of Hanging Out in Ireland, a shoestring guide for college students published in spring 2001. In addition to travel writing, she also writes fiction. Her debut novel is Mary Modern, published by Shaye Areheart Books, a division of Crown/Random House.

Elizabeth Linhart Veneman

Elizabeth Linhart Veneman has always viewed growing up in Northern California as both a blessing and curse. There is so much to see, do, and experience all within a short drive-from broad sequoias in the Sierras to ancient lava beds north of Mount Shasta, from creaky Gold Rush towns to the pampering Wine Country-that she began to wonder why anyone would ever leave.Elizabeth was eventually lured out of the Golden State to Alaska's far north, where she traveled the Inside Passage, baked bread under the midnight sun in Denali National Park, and chronicled the state's burgeoning sustainable agriculture for Alaska Magazine. These adventures culminated in penning the travel guide InsightGuides: Alaska.But Elizabeth knew her California roots were too deep to stay away for long. Raised in Carmel, where her great-great grandmother opened the first restaurant (a soup kitchen with dirt floors!) at the turn of the 20th century, she would always call California home. So she returned and devoted herself to writing about the state she loves most. Her work has included the travel guides SmartGuide: San Francisco and InsightGuides: San Francisco, as well as reporting on food and sustainable agriculture for local publications.Elizabeth is still enchanted by Northern California's wondrous melding of natural splendor with cultural charm. She currently lives with her family in San Francisco's Richmond district.

Thomas Huhti

Thomas Huhti is a born and bred "Cheesehead." He developed a serious case of anywhere-but-here at a young age, which took him to China during university. He stayed there, finding ways to flee graduate school, which ultimately led to a five-year stint traveling the globe and living out of a backpack.At a certain point, homesickness hit him like a hammer; he realized he bled Badger red and understood where "home" was. Trouble was, he didn't really know what that meant. After Moon bravely took him on, he thus began the four-year pilgrimage about the state (and to libraries), researching the first edition of Moon Wisconsin, mostly done as a labor of love and as a gift to his parents, worthy Badgers both. He still has itchy feet and continues to research and write guidebooks for countries throughout Asia.Thomas lives in Madison, WI, with his co-pilot Yuki and navigator Bobo.
