Rick Carroll, AUTHOR OF MANY HAWAII BOOKS, is the creator of the best-selling Hawaii’s Best Spooky Tales series and Madame Pele: True Encounters with Hawaii’s Fire Goddess. A former daily journalist at the San Francisco Chronicle, Rick wrote award-winning travel and feature stories about Hawaii and the Pacific for the Honolulu Advertiser and United Press International. He is a contributing editor for Hawaii magazine, and his stories appear on the Internet at www..hawaii.rr.com. His new book, IZ, Voice of a Nation: the Biography of Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole, is now in national release.

She was a Journalism Fellow in Asian studies at University of Hawaii and in energy studies at Stanford University.
