The John Paul 2 High team: from left to right: top row: Andy A+Hat, Johnny
bottom row: Ry, Regina the Series Queen, small child mascot, Token "Teenager", Julian
Missing: H, Craig and Jamie Spiering, Fr. Christopher Pollard, Jaime, Ann (and Bowman the Black is not in the picture because he was taking it).
These are some of the people who brought you the John Paul 2 High series. As you can see, I have a hard time getting them all in one room at the same time, but these were the ones who were able to make the last meeting: mainly our writers (all the guys in the picture are writers). The Token Teenager (in pink) is now 21 and thus no longer a teenager, but she still gives us feedback on how realistic our characters sound. Some of the others not pictured are editors and idea people. Fr. Chris Pollard is our chaplain and checks the books against Church teaching. Everyone is an important part of making this series work. It's been a lot of work thus far, but also a lot of fun.
Anyhow, in the coming weeks we're hoping to post more about the characters on this blog and on the website, and to give you all a chance to get your questions about the series answered.
So stay tuned, and if you think of it, say a prayer for us! Thanks!
