Jennifer Parks and David Ingram teach ethics and social justice at Loyola University, Chicago. Jennifer grew up in Kingston, Ontario, and received her B.A. and M.A. degrees at Queens University before getting her Ph.D. at MacMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
David Ingram grew up in Whittier, California, received his B.A. from the University of California at Irvine before completing his Ph.D. at the University of California at San Diego.
They met four years ago, shortly after Jennifer was hired at Loyola, and the rest is history (yep, they're married). And yes, their collaboration extends into the classroom as well (they've team-taught classes on social justice and disability and travelled together to Guatemala as part of Loyola University Ministry's social justice alternative immersion break for students). Besides having two cats and a pug dog for their ethics laboratory (the critters are always fighting and making up), they also have two very loving and supportive families. David's ten-year old daughter Sabina and his identical twin brother have knocked him down a peg or two, which is a good thing for the readers of this book. Jennifer's mom, Lauretta (who won't divulge her age) has done the same for Jennifer; and so both David and Jennifer have become humbler (and hopefully better) persons. After all, it helps to know your own faults when writing a book on ethics!
