When people ask me where it all comes from, this writing, I tell them I have this special software - it's called 'my imagination'. There's reality and experience in the background though; for example, when I was young we lived in a run-down pub not unlike The Black Bull.
I first started writing when I was a young Mum with two small children. I entered a novel writing competition in a magazine - I didn't win, but it taught me to type!
My characters do most of the writing for me, they become voices in my head and take on a life of their own. They're no angels, and they get into the sort of relationship situations which fascinate me. They make me care about them; they make me cry, and they make me laugh. I hope ... read more

Since acquiring a passion for how the body works in chiropractic school, I have continued to indulge this desire by reading some 120 peer reviewed medical journals per month. I’m always learning more about how to help people avoid chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis, obesity and cancer, and pass along this information in my blog. There are currently almost 2,000 posts cataloged on almost every health topic imaginable!
For some reason, the information that we understand about avoid and managing chronic diseases remains a big secret. Drugs dominate and lifestyle is pushed to the side. Time after time I have new patients come into my office that have not been given the informat ... read more

About John D. Ayers: As a gentleman, I truly appreciate and love everything from the regency period of Jane Austen. Mr. and Mrs. Darcy’s world is one that many of us have journeyed into often, where we lose ourselves within their story. It was and is a veritable escape from the harsh realities of current life. My words contained within this novel are expressed to move you, as my thoughts pour forth. Should the images and my feelings induce a shiver down your spine, or cause butterflies to engage within your very being, then I will consider myself highly successful in my venture. Words are powerful and can transport us all to a better time and place. This world, for me, is full of carriages, waistc ... read more

The youngest of four children, I was born in North Kent forty-something years ago and that is where I lived, on a council housing estate, for the first twenty-five years of my life.
When I was nine or ten years old, I was fortunate enough to encounter that precious thing, a wonderful teacher, who planted the seed of possibility that writing was something I could do. I caught the writing bug. It was a love that stayed with me throughout my childhood.
However, when I grew up, real life, work and family took over and it was many years before I started putting pen to paper again and still more before I made the decision to publish. It is a decision I haven't regretted. My only regret is that I didn't do it soo ... read more

Well, I hail from the frozen north of Quebec, Canada. A wondrous isolated land where I spent many a chilly evening staring up at the sky dreaming of new worlds and adventures I would love to be having instead of freezing my butt off. Even from a young age I loved to spin a good yarn to anybody who would listen, though my parents told me I just loved to talk. I would make up songs, short stories and plays to entertain myself and my cousins during long summers at the fishing camps. I followed my dream and started working in the video game industry in Vancouver and it is during this time I found the inspiration to finally put my tall tales to virtual ink and began to write my childhood dreams.

I am a foreign news video producer. At age twenty-four, I left Australia on a journey, spending much of my life reporting war and civil strife. I’ve documented every major conflict since then, from Bosnia, Chechnya and Rwanda, through to today’s Arab Spring. Interestingly, I found it wasn’t the appalling events seen in war or, unfortunately, the death of colleagues that tormented me most, but matters of the heart.
In many intimate moments I learnt things I later didn’t want to know. This is where the real stories were – pillow talk and the profound two-o’clock-in-the-morning conversations with friends. The tragic fact is my fictional story is a watered-down version of the truth, because the truth w ... read more

I have enjoyed writing since I was a child. Born in Michigan, I spent much of my childhood in San Francisco, CA and have fond memories of going fishing with my father and brothers in a sleepy, spot across the Bay called Sausalito (quite the chic locale today!). Early on, I developed a deep appreciation and love for the natural world - nurtured by my father who took daily delight in that which most people ignore or take for granted - the flora, fauna, various species of animals, birds, trees, etc. that share this planet with us. Respecting the harmony of the universe has helped to enhance my understanding of the complexity of human behavior, the value of a higher state of being and the distinctive power to ... read more
