About the Authors
After working as an editor, teacher, and counselor, Jim Rader spent the last 18 years of his career as an aide to now-U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), first as a city official in Burlington, Vermont, and then as a Congressional caseworker. Now, in retirement, Jim has been able to develop the Quip-Find(tm) word puzzles that he invented some 40 years ago. He lives on a small Vermont farm with his wife, Meg Pond. They have eight grandchildren.
Jan Schultz has worked as a software developer and manager. He came to Vermont as part of a pioneering project called PROMIS at the University of Vermont Medical School and was instrumental in developing an electronic medical record in the early 1970s using touch-screens. More recently, he has helped Jim develop Quip-Find(tm) puzzles using the Ruby programming language which he loves.

ALL NEW Word Puzzles:
Find the hidden messages!

You become a sleuth and a code-breaker!
