Avid backpackers and campers, Victoria and Frank Logue wrote their first book, The Appalachian Trail Backpacker, to share many tips and techniques they had picked up in the backcountry. Since then, the Logues have written a number of other books, all known for their straightforward advice, with numerous anecdotes from their own experiences and those of their fellow outdoor enthusiasts.
The Logues have supplied writing and photography to a number of regional and national magazines including Outdoor Traveler and Backpacker. They have appeared on CNN and numerous local TV and talk radio shows. The Logues were also guests on the Discovery Channel's series, Go For It. For more than two years, the Logues hosted a weekly online chat on long distance hiking for Backpacker magazine.
Frank served for four years as a member of the Appalachian Trail Conference's Board of Managers (through July 1999) and as a member of the ATC's Publications Committee for eight years. Frank graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary in May of 2000 with a Master of Divinity. He was ordained a in the Episcopal Church in 2000. Together, the Logues founded King of Peace Episcopal Church, which remains on the web at www.kingofpeace.org. Frank now works as an assistant to the Episcopal Bishop of Georgia and writes at The Loose Canon.
Victoria continues to write full time, keeping our books up to date while working on fiction as well. Her first novel, Redemption, is a vampire story she completed just before hiking the Appalachian Trail in 1988. It was revised, published and is now available online and in stores. Her personal website is here: Victoria Logue.
In their free time, they continue to enjoy sharing their love of the outdoors (when they get a chance to) with their adult daughter Griffin, and with each other. Griffin is a college student with a major in Biology and an interest in animal rehabilitation. Her website is www.planetanimals.com
