The Homer Bookstore is staffed by  three partners and any of an assortment of incredible
employees we have been fortunate to find over the years.

The three partners are:
Jenny came to Homer with a background in book-selling and archaeology. She was a former manager from the
Alaskan Book Cache chain. She is married to Michael Armstrong, a science-fiction author and local writer.

When she isn't at the bookstore, Jenny is either knitting, or skiing, or playing tennis, or marimba, or creating small
works of art; sometimes she chases after exotic nudibranchs. One of her fantasies has recently been fulfilled! She
now has a house large enough where both she and a TV
might be able to coexist.

Jenny is the calming voice of reason who keeps the other two partners from
throwing books at each other.
Sue has worked in bookstores off-and-on since she was
fourteen; starting as an indentured servant at The Bookstore.
She can do it all - except she hasn't mastered working in her
sleep yet. She is married to Jim Levine, an engineer who works
as a project manager for a local contractor.

When she isn't fixing her brother's computer mistakes at the
store, Sue is either horseback riding, or skiing, or kayaking, or
playing the marimba. Sue's favorite fantasy is to be able to
park-and-ride to work - on horseback.
Lee is closely related to Sue--in that they share the same
parents. Lee has been a partner in the Homer Bookstore
since the late 1970s. They keep him around because he
comes in handy when things break--sometimes he sells
books. His companion is Mary Maly, a computer addict and
co-publisher of Lee's Bone Building Books.

When he isn't arguing with the computer at work, Lee is likely
to either be working with animal bones
(, or chasing birds, or kayaking. Lee's
fantasy is to discover new tropical birds on deserted desert
islands--in Kachemak Bay.
