About the Contributors

Authors

Sybil Priebe has taught at every level of education: k-12, a few community colleges, and one university. She currently teaches a variety of courses at NDSCS. Sybil Priebe lives with her long-time boyfriend and old grey kitty. In her spare time, she likes to write, self-publish, read unconventional literature, drive her VW bug, shop at secondhand stores, go on bicycle rides, and attempt to kayak and paddleboard.

Ronda Marman has a long history with education that led her to completing three/four degrees that include undergraduates in Music, Business, and English, and a Masters in Rhetoric and Technical Writing. After a nine-year stint in the music business, a brief career as a fitness trainer, and some success as a wine steward and caterer, she is currently trying to balance raising a daughter, a German Shepherd, a husband, and two fat cats while teaching.

Dana Anderson loves how words teamed with visuals and smart document design can powerfully express ideas. Prior to teaching, she spent more than 10 years in journalism, publications/design, and corporate communications. At NDSCS, Dana teaches composition, technical communication, and professional writing classes. At home, she tries to keep up with her three boys and husband.
