Jeanne Cooper grew up listening to songs and stories of Hawaii from her mother, who lived in Oahu as a teen. She began writing about Hawaii and its diverse cultures in 2002 for the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate.com, where her work still regularly appears. Her travel stories have also been published in numerous U.S. newspapers, magazines, and websites, including Localgetaways.com. She lives on Hawaii Island with her triathlete husband, a dog, and two cats.

Natalie Schack is a writer and editor lucky enough to be born and raised on the island of Oahu. Her work has appeared in HONOLULU Magazine, Curbed, Hawaii Business Magazine, Green Magazine, Hana Hou!, Flux Magazine, and many more. When she's not penning articles about Hawaii's unique culture, food, art, and business scene, you'll find her rambling through the Koolau Mountains, swimming Oahu's south shores, and enjoying Honolulu city life with her husband and newborn son.
