John S. Bowman has been a freelance writer and editor for more than 45 years. He specializes in nonfiction ranging from archaeology to zoology, baseball to biography. He first visited Greece in 1956 and has traveled and lived there over the years. He is the author of numerous guides to various regions in Greece; for several decades, his Travellers' Guide to Crete was the premier guide to that island. He currently resides in Northampton, Massachusetts.

Sherry Marker majored in classical Greek at Harvard, studied archaeology at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, and did graduate work in ancient history at the University of California at Berkeley. The author of a number of guides to Greece, she has also written for the New York Times, Travel + Leisure, and Hampshire Life. When not in Greece, she lives in Massachusetts and London.

Peter Kerasiotis, a native Athenian, currently lives in New York City where he works as a web developer and editor. A newcomer to Frommer's, he hopes to continue a career of travel- and screenwriting.
