Caleb Nelson holds a BA in English and lives in Utah with his fabulous wife Chelsea, and three great children. When he isn't writing political treatises, he's probably playing with his kids, exploring Utah's wilderness, inciting hilarity with witty ripostes, or pwning noobs on Xbox live. Caleb enjoys singing and acting in plays, among which have been Romeo and Juliet, The Scarlet Pimpernel, and My Fair Lady. Caleb is an avid reader, consuming the likes of Robert Jordan, Ayn Rand, and Frank Herbert. Caleb's mix of reserve and razor-edged precision with words and concepts tends to be off-putting to irra-tional thinkers who don't know him. But it is that clarity of cognition which makes him a joy to his family and friends. His brain is a factory of flawless order, with complex thoughts spilling from his mind, fully formed, as Athena from the head of Zeus.Kenneth Jeppesen is an INTP who is frequently told he's "unique." He enjoys writing author bios, being meta, questioning arbitrary social norms, incisiveness, neurotic introspection, teaching Sunday school, Kermit the frog, discovering how the world works, and being a mentat. His interests include eating avocados, anything Joss Whedon has created, brewing malta, lifting weights, Minecrafting, critiquing movies, headshots with the DMR, pondering the Silmarillion, wishing he could meet Dalinar Kholin, and wondering if Orson Scott Card would be his best friend. Kenneth is in the process of pursu-ing a master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and hopes one day to be a fully-stocked dispenser of helpful knowledge.
