Meet the Author

A Minnesota native and longtime visitor to the North Shore, Kate Mayo now resides within view of Lake Superior. Frequent trips Up North finally gave over to permanent residence, and Kate has drawn on her previous perspective as a visitor to the area in the compilation of these narratives. She spent most of her career in the role of counselor and is a licensed therapist and addictions counselor, with an MA in counseling psychology.

Bill Mayo is a former Duluth resident and has lived in Two Harbors, Minnesota, for over two decades. Long a part of the poetry scene of the North Shore and a former Artist-in-Residence for Isle Royale National Park, he has published work in National Geographic's Traveler, Poets Who Haven't Moved to St. Paul and Zenith City Arts. He also holds an AAS degree in Human Services and is an enrolled member of the Leech Lake Pillage Band. His love of the North Shore came early while driving along old Highway 61 with his parents as a boy. Whether in a canoe, diving, or walking the beach, the eternal mystery of the Lake is always awe-inspiring for him.
