I've always been a rather private person, still am in fact. Publishing a book wasn't easy for me, as it meant showcasing myself to anyone who picked up my work. It took me a long time to muster the courage to finally do it. I've always believed that an author's work is a window into their mind, knowing this and being rather self-conscience, I've always been a tad afraid to let anyone have a peek into mine.
Ruling Body has been something I've been working on for a number of years, trying to perfect it and of course, enjoy it. These characters are dear to me, and at the end of it all, seven books in total, I hope others will enjoy the stories, the characters, and their situations.
Once these stories are finishe ... read more

I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying ... read more

Robert W. Fuller earned his Ph.D. in physics at Princeton University and taught at Columbia, where he co-authored Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics. After serving as president of Oberlin College, he became a “citizen diplomat,” working toward improving international relations during the Cold War. During the 1990s, he served as board chair of the non-profit global corporation Internews and promoted democracy via free and independent media.
When the Cold War ended with the collapse of the USSR, Fuller reflected on his career and realized that he had been, at different times in his life, a somebody and a nobody. His periodic sojourns into “Nobodyland” led him to identify rankism—abuse of the ... read more
The Wisdom of Science
Follow me on Twitter at bretonauthor
Once upon a time, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I used to lie in bed at night and make up stories in my head. At the age of eight, seduced by the feel and smell of a fresh sheet of lined writing paper, I began writing them down. Those first stories, heavily influenced by the "Lad" books of Albert Payson Terhune, were usually about the grand and glorious relationship between a dog and its human. But by the time I reached the age of twelve, a curious thing happened to those man/dog relationship stories: I started writing about human relationships instead. Love stories. And although there have been many variations on that theme in the years since, I'm still writing love stories. I can't imagine writing anything ... read more

I enjoy reading a wide variety of genres. When it comes to writing, however, romance is something I understand. It's about feelings. We all have them. Loving and being loved is a universal desire. I may eventually branch out into other areas of writing, but for now,I'll stick with what I know.
I live in Florida with my husband of nearly thirty years. The kids have left home and, fortunately for me, I still enjoy my own romance with my husband. I love being near the water where I can snorkel, shell, fish, and walk the beach with my husband.

I consider my best challenges in life to be those that will eventually benefit others. My writing includes fiction and non-fiction for children and adults. I am a mom, teacher, registered nurse, licensed massage therapist and author. My primary goal as a writer is to promote literacy by engaging a child's imagination through reading. I believe that a strong literacy foundation will promote long-term academic success in children as well as enrich their lives socially. My fiction books are inspirational, warm hearted in nature and hold the interest of any reader by making them feel part of each story. The goal of my non-fiction books is for you to gain something positive from them. Thank you for visiting my profi ... read more

Author's Foreword to the Electronic Edition of
My Hands Were Clean (Unlikely Stories Press)
The end of everything is going to be like a jumbo jet crash: what kills you is the sheer bouncing avoirdupois of all the other assholes jam-packed around you. The unprecedented apocalyptic monstrosity of the internet makes it obvious that our universe, and everybody in it, is hurtling into the final few screams of the Great Dissolution, as promised in the Vishnu Purana. The Night of Brahma will follow, when we all have to shut the fuck up, and even stop publishing e-books.

"I began writing fan fiction short stories in 2011, as means of escape. The response to the stories provided the necessary encouragement to continue on. A wife and mother, working full time plus another job on the side, and helping others in need, I made writing my therapy, my release for stress. I hope to continue on with this love, providing the same enjoyment she receives while writing."
Elizabeth uses writing as therapy, her release from everyday stress. At night, after work and once the children are finally tucked in bed, for the fifth time, she sits at her laptop and lets her imagination flow.
