NADIA BALLAS-RUTA is a mystic, writer, and a rebel for the Divine.
Due to being born into a family of mixed ethnicity and religion, she was free to pick whichever religion she wanted to follow. As a result, the concepts of God and the Divine became huge subjects of fascination.
At age 25, an intense spiritual journey began which included working as an attorney, initiation into the Ramakrishna Order, and so much more. To Nadia, spirituality is not a hobby…it is a way of life.
She currently works as a writer and lives in New Jersey with her husband.

I'm Jan, English, retired but hoping to be writing full time from now on.
I live near Launceston in Cornwall UK with husband Peter and Toby and Benji the Springer Spaniels - it's a tie between the boys as to who's maddest, but as I outrank all of them in being weird anyway it's not open to debate really.
I'm physically lazy with things that don't hold much interest for me (so that's mostly housework and, increasingly, cooking...), but I love where we live, mainly because I chose it for being so quiet and off the beaten track, very close to the moors and quite near to the sea.
I also love books, both to write and to read, the latter of which can be very eclectic (I enjoy Julian Barnes, Kate Atkinson, Jeanett ... read more

I felt the guilt of not being enough in terms of taking care of my mother, taking care of my job, taking care of my family, and taking care of my adult brother (Joe) with downs syndrome. Joe had lived with mom his entire life. They were inseparable until the accident.After Joe moved in with us (me, my wife and two children), I realized just how unprepared I was for taking care of a special needs individual.

Dawn wrote and illustrated the book about a little girl, who returns from home to find a Hippo in her bath tub and the trouble they get into trying to return the Hippo to the zoo .
This was a turning point as Dawn decided that from that moment on the only thing she wanted to do was write, she also decided that she would never be an illustrator as her drawing skills were somewhat lacking to say the least.

We are a family of poets that share one soul when it comes to poetry.

The biggest task, the hardest work, is to disperse the words so they may find the readers that they were naturally written for.
The writing comes easy. Finding where each poem belongs is the true challenge.
We are undertaking that challenge through Sylvan Gate Books.

I grew up in a small town during the ‘60s, as so many Americans did. My parents were Protestants but not very religious, so I had a lot of freedom to search many paths and areas of faith for myself. I did go to church with my father, where he sang in the choir and taught Sunday school to older children than I.
Our Sunday school had a pleasant enough atmosphere though I wasn’t too impressed with it all. The kind teachers would tell us about Jesus loving us and also that God was our Father in Heaven and He, too, loved us very much. We were to believe in Jesus Christ so that we would go to Heaven when we die. The minister, on the other hand, seemed to concentrate on Hell and punishment if we didn’t live up ... read more
