We're Jill and Dave Henry. We met while coaching sports at the same high school. Imagine one of those “awkward teenager” rom-coms and then apply it to adults in PE clothes. Dave asked Jill out in front of her entire cross country team, which resulted in Jill receiving an hour of dating advice from 16-year-old girls. Good thing she listened to some of it, or she might have challenged Dave to that push-up contest while speaking in her man voice after all.
We're parents to two awesome kids with very Scottish names (Cormac & Campbell) and one loveable but poorly trained pup, Russ. We live in Los Angeles.
We've been writing together for fun since our honeymoon. What started as a blog to let our families know that we were still alive turned into a true hobby that absorbed us for a couple of hours every morning on that trip and several others that followed.
We never thought we'd write about more than our misadventures.
And, to be honest, that theme is continued in our book.
The Greatest College Health Guide You Never Knew You Needed was inspired by our work with high school athletes, particularly the seniors, who confessed that they were worried about the transition to campus life.
Our hope is that by sharing our stories and advice from hundreds of students across the county along with a whole lot of research, we can set students up to better take care of themselves once they're on their own for the first time, while also giving them strategies to get back on track when they inevitably run off course.
