Teresa Marrone is the lead author of three regional field identification guides for wild mushrooms (Mushrooms of the Upper Midwest, Mushrooms of the Northeast, and Mushrooms of the Northwest). She is also sole author of more than a dozen outdoors-themed books, including the Wild Berries & Fruits Identification Guides series (currently available for four regions of the U.S.). She splits her time between her home in Minneapolis and her cabin in northern Minnesota, abutting the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. With a background in the visual arts, Drew Parker has always had a strong attraction to the natural sciences, as well. He found his focus in fungi after arriving in the Northwest in 1973 and innocently wandering into the mountains with a new mushroom book in hand. He is a longtime member of the North American Mycological Association and the Pacific Northwest Key Council, a group of amateur and professional mycologists that was formed to further the study of Northwest fungi. Over the years, he has served as foray mycologist for the Spokane Mushroom Club and has worked for several years conducting surveys of macrofungi for the U.S. Forest Service. As a photographer, Drew has supplied images for numerous mycological papers and books, as well as for MatchMaker, a digital mushroom identification program, of which he is a coauthor. He currently resides with his wife, Katie, at their home in the wild woods near Metaline Falls, Washington.
