Ravin Tija Maurice
My name is Ravin Tija Maurice and I'm from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I decided when I was six that I wanted to be a writer and I've been working my way towards that goal ever since. When I was young I would rework books that I'd read, writing myself in as a character and changing around details to make it my own.
I remember walking into a bookstore as a kid with my parents, I'd always had a thing for books but this particular time I remember seeing the name 'Stephen King' on a lot of shelves. At the time, which was the late 80's early 90's he did not take up as much real estate as he does now but it was clear he was important, it was also a name my parents read. I remember seeing the name and knowing that I wan ... read more

In a world where the super consciousness commands so much of our actions I've found it essential to cultivate what I consider my true self. However, many times the road to self-realization gets distorted from the desire to live up to external expectations. From the ability to balance the innate desires with those of the external we arrive at a transformation. This transformation could be likened unto the emergence of a butterfly from the cocoon. It’s that momentum that sparks the functions of a higher cognition.
This drive to infuse the thoughts emerging from the manifold aspects of being has resulted in the merging of my work path with that of my most innate imaginings. That's essentially what I am striving ... read more

As a travel writer for more than 30 years, Candy Harrington has spent a good deal of time on the road. Unfortunately her lifestyle wasn’t exactly conducive to keeping off the pounds.

Because they are quite easy to keep and breed in an aquarium, they are also extensively studied by scientists. The wealth of knowledge that this research generates, makes the fish much more interesting to keep for hobbyists as well. Tjern wants to make some of this knowledge available, along with practical tips on keeping and breeding zebrafish.

As a sailor in the US Navy circa 1967, did he continue his search for she who must be obeyed if he was to overcome the beastly side of his nature and reunite himself with soul.

My next thought took me to living in a house made almost entirely of glass, the inspiration for the concept of this series of books. I have always loved the idea of living in a place where I could just look outside anytime I wanted.

Maybe that was you.
It certainly was me.
As I have later come to realize through my work as a clinical psychologist, the good story is important.
Whether it is set in a distant futuristic universe or involves shiny swords, we
need stories to make coherence in our lives. Through stories, we are taught how there is more to our existence than the trivialities of everyday life.
