THOMPSON Once upon a time, Pamela Kleibrink Thompson lived in a big city out west. One day, her prince of a husband charmingly persuaded her to move to Idaho where they live happily ever after with their teenaged daugh- ter. Pamela doesn’t miss the traffic or stress, but some- times she misses her favorite Chinese restaurant. She has yet to ski at Bogus Basin or float the Boise River.

MCKETTA Elisabeth Sharp McKetta teaches essay and memoir classes in Boise and else- where. Her first poetry book, The Fairy Tales Mammals Tell, came out in January 2013. www.elisabeth

NICOLE SHARP Nicole Sharp writes fiction, swigs coffee and maintains an adamant belief in Jane Austen wisdom. She cham- pions world travel and would like to go down in history as the only writer who never ‘Tweeted’ about anything.
