Cameron Coyle is perpetually seventeen...
When Cameron Coyle was a teen, he loved everything about high school: friends, parties, lunch, basketball, even a few of his classes, but the one thing that Cameron loved the most about Thomas High School was his best friend: Claire. Growing up in Dubuque, Iowa, Cameron and Claire trusted each other with everything and accepted one another's flaws, while they longed to be anywhere but Iowa. Ten years later, Cameron, now a high school teacher outside of Minneapolis, has found himself on the wrong side of a break-up, left with a job that he despises, and in a seriously downward spiral. Cameron is all but ready to leave the profession of teaching when an old friend calls with a job proposition... at his old high school in his hometown. Cameron is about to find out that the formative years Cameron loved so much, haven't changed much since he left them, and that his time behind the desk, isn't all that different from his time in front of it. And then of course, there's Claire...

Erik Trilk is a high school English teacher who lives in Marion, Iowa with his wife, Heather, his six-going-on-sixteen-year-old daughter Maggie, and his three-year-old son/human wrecking ball Owen. Erik grew up in the great state of Iowa in a semi-famous city called Dubuque. After graduating from high school, he attended the University of Northern Iowa as well as studied in the beautiful country of Wales where we was given the opportunity to discover good music, good film, good travel, and good people. Erik is in his tenth year of molding young minds in the classroom, as well as his tenth year coaching high school soccer and fourth coaching middle school cross country. When he's not doing things that he is contractually obliged to be doing, Erik likes to play the guitar, fascinate/cry over The Beatles and Oasis, cheer for the Minnesota Twins, Manchester City, and the U.S. national soccer team, spend time with his loving family, and dream about what it would be like to meet Paul McCartney, Liam Gallagher, or Sean Connery. Erik published his first novel: "Music, Drugs, and the Mess We're In" in March of 2012 and his first collection of short stories: "It's Never Too Late To Go Back Home" in November 2012. As a teen, he was a full-fledged member of the "I Don't Ever Want To Grow Up" club and was much more interested in friends, parties, and sleep. As he grew older though, he fell in love, got married, had two children, took a full-time job educating the youth of America, and in general realized that it's not that scary to get older as long as you don't "grow up". Erik's first collection of short stories, "It's Never Too Late To Go Back Home" was released in December of 2012 and chronicles the lives of high school teens and grown-up kids set in the 1990's: The Greatest Decade in American History. Trilk's first published piece was a short story entitled, "The Boy Who Loved Hockey" in the Washington Junior High newsletter in 1993 (Trilk's 7th grade year), in which they misprinted his line about the protagonist scoring the winning goal in the championship game as: "He shits! He scores!" His mom though that was hilarious.
