“When she’s not writing, Lillibridge can be found shivering in a hockey arena or getting sunburned at the baseball field.  She still doesn’t vacuum very often, but luckily she’s nearsighted enough not to notice”.

 

 

 

Don Hilton ~ Author

Don Hilton was raised in a small town in northwest Pennsylvania by a family of “unapologetic storytellers” and was never quite sure if the tales he heard were true.

His life has been a broad mix of experiences; boat pilot, lab techniciaIMG_5362n, sweetheart, husband, post-graduate research fellow, geologist, statistician, teacher, stand-up comedian, computer support analyst, father, martial arts instructor, freelance writer, and author.

According to Don, he’s done lots of dumb things that should have “killed him dead”.

The constant in Don’s life has been his storytelling.  He claims that he’s still not as good as the old folks he used to listen to, but that he’s getting there.

Suz Priestas ~ Jewelry Designer

IMG_5090

Hi, I am Suz, local jewelry artist and owner of Evolving Design Jewelry.

Throughout my journey of becoming a self taught artistic jewelry designer, I discovered my passion for creating jewelry.  Adoring many different styles, I find my pieces to be a very personal statement.

Working with the belief that a “voice of intention” is at the heart of each piece;
my goal is to listen to that voice, and bring it to light through my designs.
As an artist, I aim to reach an audience that my creations will resonate with.
My pieces are one-of-a-kind, handmade, original designs which I create using various techniques and mediums.
