Molly Snyder loves Milwaukee. Born, raised, and a resident of Brew City for her entire adult life, Molly graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in English and even has a "Milwaukee" tattoo stretched across her left forearm. Today, she lives in Milwaukee's Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner, Royal Brevväxling (co-author of this book); two sons, Kai River and Levi; and chihuahua, Frankie. Molly has worked for OnMilwaukee (onmilwaukee.com) for almost two decades as a senior writer, editor, and manager. Her work with OnMilwaukee earned six Wisconsin Press Club awards. She appears weekly on WISN Channel 12 News, is a regular contributor on numerous radio stations, and co-hosts the podcast Dandelions: A Podcast for Women. Royal Brevväxling is a writer, educator, and visual artist with a PhD in Rhetoric and Composition from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He works at two Milwaukee-based colleges, teaching communications and humanities courses, and regularly self-publishes zines documenting his travels with his partner, the co-author of this book. Royal's visual art often focuses on constructions of class and gender, as well as portraits of Frankie, the chihuahua. His photographs have been published in OnMilwaukee, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, and Details magazine, among others.
