Daria Salamon and Rob Krause

Daria Salamon is the author of the best-selling and award-winning novel The Prairie Bridesmaid and has written for The Washington Post, The Globe and Mail, and Today’s Parent. Rob Krause has been a zoologist, a lawyer, and a record label owner, and has been published in The Globe and Mail, Winnipeg Free Press, Exclaim, and The Canadian Journal of Zoology. Together they published Don’t Try This at Home (Turnstone), the story of their 12-month journey around the world, featuring the planet’s most stunning vistas but also the challenges of foreign customs, broken-down buses, stomach bugs, personal loss, and their often less-than-enthusiastic children.
