As a single mom and first-generation, non-traditional, disabled student, Gyan Devi learned to self-navigate the higher-education system because she HAD to. In 2008, she graduated with a BA in Psychology, a Masters in Professional Coaching, a 3.79 GPA, and a mountain of debt. While in college, Gyan struggled to balance her studies and health issues. As tuition fees piled up, she found locating scholarships was confusing and overwhelming. There was so much information, she didn't know which sources to trust or how to begin. Sadly, she’s not alone. Each year, students like Gyan juggle schoolwork and grades, class attendance and part-time jobs, leaving little to no time for procuring precious scholarship money.

The Night Climbers of Cambridge is a book written under the pseudonym "Whipplesnaith" about nocturnal climbing on the colleges and town buildings of Cambridge, England, in the 1930s.
"Whipplesnaith" is a pseudonym for Noël Howard Symington. The book was originally published in October 1937 by Chatto and Windus, revised in November 1937 and reprinted in 1952 and 1953. The second edition contains a reordered selection of photographs and a missing diagram explaining the escape from the roof of the Marks and Spencer.
The book was highly sought after, especially in Cambridge itself where it was regarded as one of few "guidebooks" to the routes onto the roofs of the town's ancient buildings. Famous climbs document ... read more

I grew up in a small southern Texas town where people didn’t lock their doors at night in fear. My sister and I could be found either on our bikes, in a tree or just running barefoot through our huge back yard. We were rarely indoors and our mother would stand on the back porch and call to us when it was dinner time. We could hear her from blocks away when she’d call us, and come roaring into the yard on our bikes, usually racing to ... read more

Now retired from the paid workforce, Winfreda is able to indulge a life-long ambition to write fiction. Although she enjoyed her later work-life writing (research reports, policy documents, academic theses), the joy of allowing imagination to run is liberating. Farewell to the constraints of facts and statistics.
Another ambition is to stay healthy for long enough to tap out the myriad fancies itching to take shape.
Winfreda calls on experiences from a long working life and a fascination with family dynamics to fashion characters and plots. But as she writes, some alchemy happens to merge the temperaments and personalities of the characters with unforeseen events that often surprise her.

Harry is a massive sci-fi fan, both of books and of anything that can be viewed on a screen. Without a book he is totally lost and one day it occurred to him to start writing his own stories instead of just thinking them and forgetting forever.
Harry has released two books on Amazon so far, "The Bell Curve" and "Sawtooth", both loosely themed on intelligence and eugenics in a dystopian world.
One of Harry's favourite pastime is writing biographies of himself, like this one, in the third person. It makes him feel like a proper author to see a brief summary of his achievements written by himself on a web page. He must feel so proud right now.

The art of writing for me is like a painting.
You have an idea of what you want to paint, (like a face). Is it a woman's face or a man's? Is the face thin or fat? What kind of facial characteristics does it have? That is in the background? Are there other people in the scene of the painting? Is it a realistic work of art or more open to the imagination like an abstract?
Well, all writing has some reality in it from the writer's world. Some have more realism in them than others. Mine are a combination of both. Some are stories within stories. Ernest Hemmingway was good at this. Some writers start with outlines on paper. I start with an idea in my head and the main characters.
Then I sit down and write. N ... read more

Writing is my first love. Even before I could read or put coherent sentences down on paper, I would beg the older kids to team up with me for the purpose of crafting ghost stories to share with our friends. This first writing partnership came to a tragic end when my coauthor decided to quit a day later, and I threw my cookies at her head. Today, I stick with solo writing, telling the stories that would otherwise keep me up at night.
