About the Authors Jim and Cynthia Tunstall are the dummies behind this guide. Jim has been an editor and writer for The Tampa Tribune since 1978. Cynthia is a freelance writer and photographer whose work has appeared in Better Homes & Gardens, Elegant Bride, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, among others. Together, they've authored six travel guides, including Frommer's Walt Disney World & Orlando 2001 and Florida for Dummies, which you can find in bookstores in late 2000. The Tunstalls are native Floridians who live in Lecanto, Florida — a radar blip that's 70 miles west of the Magic Mickey. They currently share space with two horses, two dogs, two cats, a parrot, and a lot of cranky wildlife, including a gopher tortoise named Ike.
