'''Larry Correia''' spent his formative years in El Nido CA where he tells us the cows far outnumbered the people. There being little of interest in El Nido, he shot a lot of guns and read a lot of books—both of which activities contributed strongly the the “formative” part of “formative years.” The latter interest led him to empty the local library by age 12. First came Louis L’Amour, then Terry Brooks, Raymond E. Feist, David Eddings, John Dalmas, Frank Herbert, and more. In between the reading came the shooting—for pest control, for food, and for enjoyment; not all at the same time.

'''Stephanie Osborn''' is a former payload flight controller, a veteran of over twenty years of working in the civilian space program as well as various military space defense programs. Stephanie is retired from space work and has moved on to be a heck of a writer. She's been known to claim she's still fairly new at this "author stuff," but that's getting harder to take seriously all the time… just look at the body of her work. Her website—[http://www.Stephanie-Osborn.com www.Stephanie-Osborn.com]—lists a huge array of novels (some co-authored with the likes of Travis S. Taylor, Darrell Bain, or Darrell Osborn), short fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and even a YA fantasy book. Stephanie was a major hit as our Mistress of Ceremonies at Con†Stellation XXX in 2011—so much so that she's become our semi-permanent MC :-)

For us at Con†Stellation, '''Toni Weisskopf''' may be the epitome of a hometown <del>gal</del> <del>woman</del> <del>person</del> hero made good. OK, so Huntsville isn't actually her home town, but she moved here with her family at age 12 and credits our fair city as the place she discovered fandom.

Toni has kept Baen Books one of the leading publishers of sf and fantasy since then and shows no signs of slowing down. When you talk to her at Con†Stellation you can ask her about Baen's e-publishing program and how their philosophy on Digital Rights Management seems to be spreading; or about the stellar list of authors she's worked with; or about, well, just about anything to do with sf/f publishing. You can also ask her about fandom—she may be the consumate pro but she's also still a fan, and was one of the driving forces bringing DeepSouthCon back to Huntsville for its [http://www.dsc50huntsville.com/ 50<sup><small>th</small></sup> incarnation] last year. You can read more about Toni Weisskopf in a [http://www.locusmag.com/2007/Issue03_Weisskopf.html <em>Locus Magazine</em> interview] or visit the Baen Books website [http://www.baen.com/ here].
