Eileen McGervey - Owner
Escapee from corporate marketing to a place where she is surrounded by her favorite things - books, wine, chocolate and people who enjoy them. Love mysteries, wine, chocolate, peeps and Bill Murray movies. Sees more of her family and friends than ever since the store opened not that everyone knows where to find her. Misses traveling but hopes to visit her sister’s family in New Delhi one day soon.

Lisa Chavez - Marketing
Lisa Chavez is delighted to be employed by One More Page! An overwhelmed mom whose only means of escape is by “working” at the store, she happily latches on to any customer that offers adult conversation. You might not see her at the store very often (although somehow she manages to mysteriously hound the local press) but, if you do, we promise that she will be absolutely clueless about operating the store’s register. In her spare time, Lisa enjoys … well, never mind, she doesn’t have any spare time, but when she does luck out and has her house to herself, she relishes diving into a good book. And experimenting with hair color.
Katie Franzen - Book Buyer
Katie is a poor grad student trying to make enough money to fund her book addiction. She reads way too much for her own good, but on the upside, she will have a recommendation for any type of book you are looking for. She performs our Story Time events and will lead our Kid and Teen Book Groups. Katie has just received her Masters in Library and Information Science. When not slaving away over books and chocolate, she works on her blog and plays with her dog and cat.
Lelia is a non-recovering, non-apologetic book hoarder whose “job” at One More Page is actually an enabling device to support her unhealthily codependent relationship with books. She spends most of her time trying to defy the laws of physics in order to fit all of her books in her room, or watching television and blogging about it. An avid fan of fiction in any form, her true love is young adult literature, which she fears she will never outgrow. She tries to restrain her love of books so as not to alarm customers, but if she sees you eyeing one of her favorite books, her unbridled enthusiasm will be unleashed upon you like a rabid-but-friendly mountain lion. Her favorite books of all time are unquestionably the Harry Potter series. She has, on at least one occasion, had to visit the Lost and Found and ask if anyone had turned in her wand.
Terry Nebeker - Author Whisperer
Terry is thrilled to be working at One More Page. She previously appeared at the wonderful “Aladdin’s Lamp Children’s Books,” and has warmed up nicely to the world of grown-up literature. She likes to read non-fiction and loves memoirs, especially if some sort of addiction is involved. She specializes in describing the wonders of the store’s exotic chocolate selection, and stalking authors and luring them to One More Page to talk about their books. She loves tasting wine with Eileen when the wine guy visits and then staggering to the register to ring up unsuspecting customers, shortchanging them inadvertently.
