Zuton is a native of Denver. She graduated from George Washington High School and works with elementary children. Zuton is a wife, mother, and lifelong writer. On Thanksgiving Day, 2012, she released her first book: Mommy’s Reflections: Losing Zumante and Finding the Mustard Seed. Written following the death of Lucero-Mills’ 9-year-old son, it details a journey of grief and growth. Although it chronicles the devastation of losing a child, it is also a testament of faith and courage. Zuton is currently working on several children’s books. The first, Remembering Mimi, is expected to be released Fall 2014. The author will be selling copies of her book. Learn more about Zuton on Goodreads, LinkedIn, her website and Amazon.

Orville Springs was born and raised in Denver, Colorado where he attended Maria Mitchell and Columbine Elementary schools, Smiley Junior High, and graduated from East High School in 1958, the same year he won the Woodbury Medal for Declamation. He completed his post-secondary education at the University of Colorado in Boulder where he majored in International Relations. Eventually he was hired as a reporter at the San Francisco Examiner where he was chosen by the Ford Foundation to do graduate work in journalism at Columbia University in New York, New York. That didn't work out as Mr. Springs is a creative writer and, as he says, "journalism cramped my style." Ordained in the Ministry of Salvation, Orville is a member of the St. Paul Singers, and serves as liturgist at St. Paul United Methodist Church and is a member of the Salvation Army's Red Shield Bible Study Class in Denver.
