Meet the Author

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. His new book, IZ: Voice of the People (the Biography of Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole), is now in national release.

Marcie Rasmussen Carroll, freelance travel writer and former communications director for the Hawaii Convention and Visitors Bureau, wrote political, environmental, and other news for the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Jose Mercury-News, and United Press International in Atlanta. She was a journalism fellow in Asian studies at University of Hawaii and in energy studies at Stanford University.
Together, the Carrolls, who moved to Windward Oahu in 1983, collected and edited the anthology Travelers’ Tales Hawaii: True Stories of the Island Spirit, which one reviewer praised as “the best collection of contemporary Hawaii travel stories.”

Candy Aluli has lived in the Islands since 1983, residing first on Kauai, then on Oahu, and now on Maui. A marketing consultant and freelance travel writer, Candy has collaborated on other Hawaii guidebooks and travels extensively between the Islands for both business and pleasure.
