Of course, make sure that you fasten all windows and doors before you leave for vacation.

Lisa Roth grew up in an artistic family. Her surgeon father was also an actor, her mother was a sculptor and her older brother, David Lee Roth, was the frontman for Van Halen. After a career as a nutritionist, Lisa Roth co-founded “Rockabye Baby,” which licenses music by artists such as the Beatles, Nirvana and U2 and reinvents them as gorgeous lullabies. Of her own childhood, the Pasadena-based Roth fondly recalled trips with her family. “I remember taking the train from Boston to Miami to visit my grandparents when I was four,” she said. “We stayed in a hotel with a huge pool, which was all very exciting. I clearly remember climbing out of the pool with a tummy ache, climbing into my mother’s arms and throwing up into the front pocket of her polka dot, terry cloth coverup. It was a perfect aim and a great trip.”

Only a fool would try to make predictions about the future at this point, so let’s call these “guesstimaybes” (using data and projections where possible).

Lily Anne Harrison grew up in the public eye. The daughter of actor Gregory Harrison (“Trapper John, M.D.”) and model Randi Oakes and recently engaged to longtime boyfriend Peter Facinelli (“Twilight”), the actress and writer takes Hollywood in stride. Her latest film is “The Vanished,” which was spearheaded by Facinelli. Set in an RV park, the film follows the case of a missing child. Harrison resides in Los Angeles. Fans may follow her on Instagram (@lilyanneharrison) and Twitter (@lilyaharrison).

Born in Los Angeles and currently a resident of California’s Bay Area, author Nancy Jooyoun Kim focuses on a daughter who investigates her mother’s mysterious death in her novel “The Last Story of Mina Lee” (Park Row, $27.99). An avid traveler, Kim says she still has a destination she’d like to check off her bucket list. “I’ve always wanted to go to Australia and dive or snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef,” she says. “(It) is now in so much danger, because of climate change and global warming.” For more information on Kim and her book, check out her website (www.nancyjooyounkim.com).
