Gretchen Cook

Publisher

When she was four years old Gretchen discovered her love for travel. She packed a tiny suitcase and sat by the front door, waiting for some of her parents’ friends who had asked her, “Would you like to go home with us and be our little girl?”  She bawled when she realized she didn’t get to go.

When Scott was in 1st grade he wrote about wanting to become an artist and living on the streets of Paris; if nothing else, he’s always been a realist.

Dasha Peipon

Managing Editor, Central Mississippi & DeSoto

When Dasha was 10 years old, she started drama at school and always played the villains’ parts. Her best one was the Evil Queen from Snow White (she still occasionally scares her kids with lines from her part).Though she never understood why she got those parts, she embraced them. Every story needs a good villain.

Kara Bachman

Managing Editor, South Mississippi & Delta

When Kara was 12, her favorite thing to do was always roller skating – the social kind, that was popular in the ’80s. She’d wear four wheels (not the “roller blades” kids wear today–yuk!) and skate-dance to Michael Jackson and Journey every weekend under a disco ball at a neighborhood rink.
