Lanai Jarrico (Editor, Writer)
Lanai began her journey in January of 2003 when she created “Lanai” in the virtual world, The SIMS Online. She quickly found herself in a unique world that was much like the real one. It was a place that stirred up human emotion and created long lasting friendships, even feelings of love, conflict and loss. It was an interesting atmosphere, one of many possibilities and even more stories to tell.
On October 4, 2004, she founded the original TSO Enquirer. The inspiration came from sitting around a campfire chatting with her circle of friends. She decided it would be a cool idea to create a newspaper to inform and entertain them. Next thing she knew, viral advertising had spread throughout the virtual world community with unexpected results.
In 2005 Lanai was invited to Second Life by amateur filmmakers from Paris after working on a documentary project together. She initially declined but decided to give it a second look a couple of months later. Since then Lanai has been running The SL Enquirer along with Team SLE and has been featured in multiple publications and exhibitions throughout the years. Most recently, Lanai was the recipient of the Echelon Award presented by Pulse TV Network in honor of her long standing media efforts with The SL Enquirer and recent appointment as head of operations for Press Pass Media. In her real life, Lanai is a fashion blogger and full-time student in media and communications.
You can contact Lanai via e-mail and in Skype (lanai_jarrico), and you can learn more about her at the following sites: Flickr, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and MySpace.
Lacy Muircastle (Editor, Writer)
Lacy has been called “a writing fool…” by one of her editors. She is also Lanai's right hand in SLE operations.
Not only does she write for the SL Enquirer, but she writes for the likes of MORE Magazine, the BOSL Magazine, and VMS Magazine. She also contributes to Ivy Maverick’s WomenStuff/MenStuff group blog and was estate reporter for The Costa Rica Sims of the DSE Corporation. It is Lanai Jarrico of the SLE who initially gave Lacy the opportunity to write and set her on the path she now finds herself in SL.
Lacy’s all-time favorite author is Dr. Seuss – “Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”
Out in the big bad real world, Lacy’s human form is attempting her hand at ‘penning’ an actual book. Learn more about Lacy at her website and on Facebook and Twitter.

As a SL resident since 2008, Glossom Resident has done a bit of everything before engaging in the writing. Her inquisitive nature makes her restless! She loves to portray the places and people that cross her way, or vice-versa, by painting the words with all the colors of the rainbow. Luckily the river of ideas never runs dry as Glossom does not stops exploring exciting new corners and meeting lots of interesting new people with fascinating stories and projects.

Queen of the WindowLickers- and proudly wears that title in Second Life. New to the game, only on since March of 2013, I’m learning something every day. I write dark fantasy in Real Life, so of course on here I am a vampire… I mean come on, it’s awesome. I like chilling at clubs, hanging with friends, and I love to talk and meet people. Beware: I come with my own warning label though. Asks many questions. I like to understand, so yes I will ask until you tell me to zip it. I write the Snake Adventures, because my SL brother has always managed to end us up in some kind of drama or excitement. Gotta love SL.
I love Second Life. There is always something new to learn or get into and there are so many different types of people to talk to! ::Bounces up and down excited:: I like to try different things, I’ve found skydiving to be about my favorite so far. I keep my RL that, and I bring my morals, my sense of humor, and my personality with me to Second Life, but not RL. I owe many thanks to my friends on here, because without them I’d hung up the avatar a long time ago. Loves and Hugs.You can find my books on Amazon, my blog http://criscoursey.wordpress.com/ , or find my page on facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Cris-Coursey/496060460409725?fref=ts
