We are a Florida family made of transplants and native species. Will, a journalist, was born in Colorado and has lived in many U.S. states and, for six months, in India. Siobhan is a Pennsylvania native and a plant biologist who has fallen in love with the South not just because of the beaches and sunshine but also because the natural landscape provides her with endless opportunities for enjoyment and employment! The native half of our family consists of our two daughters, both born in St. Petersburg. They've each seen snow exactly once and still aren't sure about it. We're looking to change that during our upcoming sojourn to Canada. We all love reading (even the 2-year-old) and while our house will be free of most personal effects while we're away, we like to keep the bookshelves stocked for our guests' pleasure.
