About the Author

Deanna Keahey has loved travel and adventure her whole life. She is a veteran of the travel industry, and for 7 years, ran an international tour company that operated trips in the US, Canada, Caribbean, Central and South America, and Europe. Her timeshare experiences began with one rather painful (but funny in hindsight) timeshare presentation years ago in Mexico. Since that time, she's enjoyed many fabulous timeshare vacations.

Brian Cook has owned timeshares for over a decade, owning at several different resorts. He has bought timeshares for as little as $1, and discovered many ins and outs of timeshare ownership. He's used every avenue available with his timeshares, learning to multiply his vacations and minimize the costs. He takes numerous timeshare trips each year, with 11 weeks of timeshare vacations in 2012.

When the two of them met, Brian showed Deanna how he uses timeshares to get many vacations and unbelievable deals. She quickly realized that Brian knew how to work the timeshare system much better than most people. Some people pay tens of thousands of dollars, and end up with a timeshare they barely use. Brian was paying a tiny amount for timeshares, and getting a huge amount of benefit from them.

Thus was born the idea for this project, Winning the Timeshare Game. Deanna wrote the book, while Brian provided insider information, practical tips, and a few of his personal success stories. We both hope that this information is useful for you, and that you get as much enjoyment out of timeshares as we do!
