ALI is a writer, primarily of fiction. She earned her MFA at Sarah Lawrence and her BA from Virginia Tech. To complement her writing in the most delicious way possible, she became a sommelier. She will shortly also be able to call herself a shepherdess, a keeper of chickens, and a maker of cheese. One day soon, Ali will be your hostess at Longhouse.
You can find her work here.
BYRON is a management consultant who, on weekends, becomes Lord Byron of DIY, gardening, and general handiness. Without his green thumb, Ali would probably kill all the green things you're likely to eat when the retreat is up and running.
