- Author BiographyRachel Ryan is a Certified Teacher of English in the state of New Jersey with 12 years classroom experience. She also has a lifetime of acting experience coupled with 18 years of directorial experience in Community and High School Theaters. In her free time she has authored quite a few short scenes and monologues and has tried her hand at several full length plays. She has seen quite a few of them take the stage, including the stage version of The Search for Christmas, originally a musical she co-wrote with her father. Russ Scalzo has written too many songs to count throughout his lifetime, including I Know Why, a song that landed him and his band, The Hallmarks, a recording deal with Mercury Records in the 1960s. Since then he has penned hundreds of songs, including the ones heard in the musical version of The Search for Christmas. Russ is a self-taught musician and writer drawing from a lifetime of experience. As a father/daughter team, they have written four original musicals together and have seen them all take the stage with Lighthouse Productions, a theater company they co-founded. Over the past few years, Lighthouse has grown and is now a non-profit organization with a board of directors and an enthusiastic group of actors, musicians and technicians. It is through Lighthouse that the story of The Search for Christmas first debuted and was so well received by audience members of varying backgrounds. Each December it takes the stage and it is the excitement and buzz surrounding this story that prompted Ryan and Scalzo to scribe it into a novel.
