A writer-reporter at Sports Illustrated in New York for ten years, an editor at Whittle Communications for  ve, and over the past two decades a writer for a variety of regional and national publications from Washingtonian Magazine to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, Brooks writes in both quantity and quality. We’re grateful to have him write
our “Dining Out” column: this month he saddles up and takes on Lonesome Dove. Recently, he  nished his MFA in Creative Writing at UT, writing a soon-to-be published biography of Sally L. Smith. When he’s not putting pen to paper, you might  nd him rowing with Oak Ridge Atomic Masters crew.
Knoxville makeup artist Susan Bourdeau is a nationally recognized professional makeup artist and wardrobe
stylist with over 20 years’ experience. Susan’s talent and integrity keep her in-demand and on-the-go, traveling the country working for clients that include major television and cable networks and national magazines. Susan has introduced her own professional lines of makeup and skin care, with her main objective to create groundbreaking, high quality cosmetics and skincare available at reasonable prices, all while using the best possible ingredients and raw materials. This month, she worked with Cityview to style our “Dressing for Dinner” feature.
By day, Caitlin is a copywriter at a local independent advertising agency. By night, she is your typical southern belle full of sass and crass who enjoys putting words together to tell entertaining, informative stories. Sometimes these stories go into commercials; sometimes they stay in print. During the spring and summer months, on sunny days you can typically  nd her hiking around the Smoky Mountains or splashing in Abrams Falls. On rainy days,
she stays inside with her cat and drinks questionably large amounts of hazelnut co ee. In this issue, we  nd her investigating local sources of healthy, if not o cially organic, food in our “Olde Time Organic” feature.
When she isn’t working as Visual Coordinator for Young- Williams Animal Center, Hannah is dreaming up a seemingly endless plethora of new ideas and adventures. If she’s not thinking up a new way she could make apple pie even better than it already is, she can be found perched near her cat reading one of her many favorite books,
trying her best to write a new one, or watching the same sitcoms on Net ix over and over again. Hannah also enjoys trekking to the mountains in Thoreauvian fashion from time to time—with her camera, favorite people, and no agenda in tow. Recently, she headed to Sevier County to write this issue’s “Hidden in Plain Sight” feature.
