Ever since she was a little girl on a farm in rural Iowa, Jenny Bullington's heart has been filled with wanderlust and adventure. She started writing at an early age, and has never stopped. After traveling around Europe, Africa, and Asia, Bullington's desire to transport others to those places and to raise awareness of important humanitarian and social issues takes hold in her writings.
She received her Bachelor's Degree from Iowa State University and her Master's Degree from Pacific Oaks College. In her spare time, Bullington enjoys teaching as an adjunct college professor, writes parenting and child development columns for a taekwondo kids program, is a student of taekwondo, jiujitsu, and krav maga martial arts, is passionate about social justice and advocating against domestic violence and human trafficking, serves on the Board of Directors for an Omaha nonprofit named Survivors Rising, and volunteers at her children's school. She's a featured storyteller at Ode/Beacon Story Lab, an Iowa organization that promotes positive impact through empathy. Her adventures never stop as she raises her five small children with her beloved husband, Branden, in the Midwest.

George Sirois has yearned to be a storyteller all his life, no matter the medium. That drive first led him to drawing his own characters while in grade school, and then - when his skills never advanced beyond the most primitive sketches - writing about them in various short stories and screenplays before moving on to novels such as “Excelsior” and the five-part serial “From Parts Unknown.” He is a regular contributor to Write Pack Radio (www.windingtrailsmedia.com) and was named President of the Missouri Writers Guild in May 2017. After living in New York City and Richmond, Virginia, George, his wife, and their two dogs now happily call St. Louis, Missouri their home. In his spare time, George is an avid cinephile, a collector of film scores, and a lifelong fan of the New York Giants. He enjoys West Coast Swing dancing, and is currently pursuing work as a voice actor & audiobook narrator. “Excelsior” and the first of two sequels - “Ever Upward: Part Two of The Excelsior Journey” - are available through Aelurus Publishing: www.aeluruspublishing.com.
George is now the host and producer of the new podcast "Excelsior Journeys," which launches October 9.
George's Twitter handle is @GeorgeSirois and his Facebook page is www.facebook.com/excelsiorbooks. For more information, go to www.hesgotit.com.
