About Catherine Boddie
Catherine Boddie spent her formative years in a tiny town in Southeast Texas but finally found home when she came to Colorado to study all things library at the University of Denver.

Stephen Tafoya is a Technology Trainer for the Garfield County Public Library District and also develops programming for children and teens. A former teenager himself, Stephen often finds himself in goofy situations and ridiculous conversations, which contributes to his ability to build meaningful relationships with teens. When he is not working in libraries, you will find him procrastinating on his current novel or blogging for Littleelit.com, often paired with a cup of coffee and a goofy smile.
