Mallory Kasdan is a writer and voice actor. She writes about parenting and culture and does voice-overs for television and radio. Ella is her first book. Mallory lives in Brooklyn with her family - unfortunately not in a hotel. Read her essays and listen to her voice work at mallorykasdan.com. Follow her on Twitter @MalloryKasdan.

Rachel Heiman is an anthropologist whose research explores the relationship between habits, sentiments, and spaces of everyday life and the volatility of cultural, political, and economic conditions. Her first book-length ethnography, Driving after Class: Anxious Times in an American Suburb, was recently published by the University of California Press. She also is co-author of the edited volume, The Global Middle Classes: Theorizing through Ethnography. She has been a Visiting Scholar at the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, NM and the Russell Sage Foundation in New York. She lives in Brooklyn and teaches at The New School.

Matt Matros's writing has appeared in The Washington Post, CNNMoney.com, UCSB's Spectrum, and CardPlayer magazine. He is seeking representation for his novel Electives & Extracurriculars, a big-hearted send-up of college in the late nineties, and he's at work on a new project loosely based on Bob Bradley's tenure as coach of the Egyptian national soccer team. In his other life as a professional gambler, Matt has won three World Series of Poker bracelets, and he is the author of The Making of a Poker Player (Kensington, 2005). Matt has an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, and lives in Brooklyn with his wife Ivy.

Jamie Berk began his writing career as an editorial intern at Rolling Stone and continued it as a Senior Fellow at Dartmouth College, where he began work on an upcoming book about popular music. He has been a featured speaker at South by Southwest and is the co-editor of American Circus, a Pushcart Prize-winning journal of creative nonfiction. Last year, he wrote a series of articles investigating drug abuse in horse racing.
