Alec Hastings grew up in the Vermont foothills just west of the Connecticut River. His grandfather taught him to swing a scythe, sharpen an ax, and drive a war-surplus Willys Jeep. His father taught him to shoot a rifle, play the Scottish bagpipes, and love the written word. His grandmother filled him to bursting with sour cream cookies and fresh-baked bread. All his elders filled him with stories! He has done the same for his own children, grandchildren, and the students in his high school and community college writing classes. He continues a lifelong habit of writing down stories, and he continues to live happily with his wife Denise in the hill country of Vermont.

Barbara holds an undergraduate degree from Keene State College and a Master’s in Counseling from Antioch University. She studied writing at the University of Vermont, taking additional coursework at St. Michael’s College, and Johnson and Lyndon State Colleges.

During the two years she worked for the University of Vermont Extension Service, she wrote a weekly column for The News and Citizen and a monthly newsletter for 4-H families. She even tried her hand at writing blogs for the Flynn Theatre.
During the summers, Barbara lives a quiet life on a small Northern Vermont lake. She recently took up fishing to pass the time during this Covid-isolation-summer, and as an excuse to get out on the water. When winter approaches she flies away to her Florida property with the rest of the snowbirds. There, she starts her day walking the undeveloped trails in her neighborhood, then moves on to creative pursuits.
In addition to writing, Barbara is passionate about genealogy and restoring vintage photographs. She played guitar in a Ceilidh group and clarinet in the Newport Community Band. She sang with Northsong, a Classical Chorus, for sixteen years until the Covid pandemic shuttered the doors on group activities. She started a knitting group at the Goodrich Library that lasted over ten years, again, furloughed by Covid-19.
Barbara has three grown children, and six delightful grandchildren who are not furloughed by the pandemic. People say of her, she makes a friend everywhere she goes.

Bill Schubart has lived in Vermont with his family since 1947. Educated in Morrisville, Phillips Exeter, Kenyon College and UVM, his great uncle was the renowned photographer and champion of impressionist art, Alfred Stieglitz. Noted publishers of the time were well represented in his family. Roger Straus (Farrar, Straus, & Co.) and Alfred and Blanche Knopf (Knopf / Borzoi Books) were cousins and part of his early family on his father’s side. At Exeter, a sonnet he’d written earned admission to George Bennett’s creative writing class. Bennett taught many future American writers, like James Agee. Like Agee, Schubart went on to become head of the Lantern Club, Exeter’s literary society, and invited Father Flye to visit Exeter.
Schubart is fluent in French language and culture, which he taught before entering communications as an entrepreneur. He has served on panels and spoken at numerous industry and media events including Book Expo, IPNE, The DMA, and The Entertainment Marketing Conference. He writes about Vermont in fiction, humor and opinion pieces and is a regular columnist for VTDigger.

He also founded the Pleiades Music Group, a music publishing company. At 26 he was elected Chair of the Vermont Arts Council – the youngest trustee ever to serve as Chairman – and then served again at age 41. At 30, he joined the Board of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. In 1984, he became Chairman of the Vermont Folklife Center. Schubart has chaired the Arts Council’s Media Panel, Literature Panel and Visual Arts Panels and has served as a resource panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts. He also chaired Fletcher Allen Health care, a 450 bed university medical center, The VT Business Roundtable, and VT Public Radio.
