About the Author


An award-winning author, Cynthia Leal Massey has published hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles and several books. A first-place winner of the Lone Star Award for Magazine Journalism and a finalist for the Texas Institute of Letters O. Henry Award for Best Work of Magazine Journalism, she is also the recipient of a Will Rogers Silver Medallion Award for Western Nonfiction for her book, Death of a Texas Ranger: A True Story of Murder and Vengeance on the Texas Frontier. Born and raised on the south side of San Antonio, Massey has resided in Helotes, twenty miles northwest of the Alamo City, since 1994. Mike Jones was born and reared in Brownsville, Texas, and has lived with his wife of thirty-eight years in the gateway to the Texas Hill Country in far northwest San Antonio since 2005. He is the father of five and grandfather of eight. Mike has a passion for sharing the beauty of God’s creation from a fragrant field of Texas wildflowers on a cool spring morning to the grandeur of a Colorado mountain fall. He also enjoys photographing individuals, families, weddings, parties, and a wide variety of events. “For me, photography is about people and building relationships to share the beauty in and around them.” Mike’s work has been published in magazines, calendars, and websites, some of which can be seen on his gallery page at www.C116Photography.com. Rob Greebon is a fourth-generation Texan who resides in Dripping Springs on the edge of the Texas Hill Country with his wife and two daughters. As a self-taught photographer, Rob has successfully transitioned his love of the outdoors into an award-winning photography business. His work has been published internationally and appears regularly in local and national publications, on television, in many corporate and private collections, and in the books Austin: A Photographic Journey; Texas Wildflowers Impressions; and Big Bend: A Photographic Journey. As an admitted morning person, he enjoys the solitude and beauty that comes with a quiet sunrise, whether it’s from a high-rise in west Texas or a remote spot in the Texas Hill Country.
