Writers Craig Lancaster and Elisa Lorello started their careers on similar paths: both self-published their first novels, which went on to become incredible hits.

The couple met at an industry party in 2011 and became fast friends. Their friendship grew into a long-distance relationship, with both parties crisscrossing the nation—Craig visiting New York, Elisa visiting Montana—until the couple was married and Elisa moved west to join Craig in Billings.


Frank Warren—often referred to as the most trusted stranger in America—has received more than a million secrets in the mail since 2004, when he started PostSecret, a community art project where people anonymously mail him their secrets on a postcard. At times hilarious and heartbreaking, the secrets reflect complex issues of intimacy, stigma, meaning, humor, and desire.
