Spiritual/Self-Help Guru,


You'd have to scour two universes to find another one like Big. He's a deep thinker, esoteric, philosophical, wild, and fun crazy, an artist, storyteller supreme, and he's funny to boot. Larry's a genuine non-believer where technology is concerned. He's the one on the far right in the picture of four Mercer University guys from 1971.

Steve Cartwright

Author/Illustrator


It's well known that an artist becomes more popular by dying, so I'm typing this with one hand while pummeling my head with a frozen mackerel with the other. I've done art for several magazines, newspapers, websites, commercial and governmental clients, books, and scribbling but mostly drooling - on tavern napkins. I also create art pro bono for several animal rescue groups. I was awarded the 2004 James Award for my cover art for Champagne Shivers. I recently illustrated the Cimarron Review, Stories for Children, and Still Crazy magazine covers. Take a gander ( or a goose ) at my online gallery: www.angelfire.com/sc2/cartoonsbycartwright  . No pixels were injured during the production of this website. And please hurry with your response  this mackerel's killin' me! Your pal, Steve Cartwright.

Michael C. Smith (from New Zealand)

Bio; Born in Plymouth England in 1945 had a wonderful childhood in a family of six, sister and two brothers. as a family we did not have much money coming into the household, but what we did have was far more valuable, parents that gave us a happy up bringing. Schooling was not for me I was dyslectic and that caused a lot of problems with teachers who did not understand a child who saw and wrote backwards both with words and numbers. By the time I was fifteen I was more then ready to leave school. Only one teacher inspired me and the subject was geography he inspired in me a desire to travel the world so after Farm working for six years, three of which was working for a UK company supplying emergency staff, that enabled me to travel all over the UK. At the age of twenty-one I emigrated to New Zealand by way of South Africa, Australia and having promised my Mother that I'd return after two years did so by way of the Pacific Islands, the USA and Canada. I stayed over a few months in the UK before heading across the middle and far east to Australia and on to New Zealand where later got married did a honeymoon trip, worked in a TV factory to the UK returned to New Zealand after nearly two years in the UK Travelled back on a Russian ship, that was an experience in it's self. On returning to NZ I joined PYE/Phillips electronics and over several years ended up as the Quality Assurance Manager. During this period I was very involved in Jaycee (a young mans service organization) it enabled me to travel to Hong Kong and attend a convention in Japan. My marriage broke up shortly after and I left the company and moved to Tauranga a small city only a hour away, that enabled me to see my children and start a new life. I soon developed a business in the building industry employing up to 25 men, remarried, travelled to many countries over the next twenty-five years and retired in 2012 to start working on the internet with beezeebooks in 2013 something I really enjoy doing, it's very rewarding being able to help and encourage authors in promoting their books.  I can class many as good friends.

Qumran Taj

Sometimes it feels like the last 50 years of my life has been a kind of restaurant 'sampler' dish. Everything looked good to me and I had to be a life-hog and sample everything on the menu!

My journey included being a Christian minister, public speaker, counselor and mentor, later on an Interfaith minister, published author, writer, freelance artist, amateur musician, radio host and Certified Professional Life Coach. The seminars, classes, workshops I create are always designed to help individuals to grow into the best and most authentic version of themselves possible. My writings, articles, quotations and poetry have appeared in many respected publications. I have been interviewed on various radio programs, television and feature film.

Opening my retail store/ learning center/ community meeting place called “Wizards” is possibly the single professional accomplishment of which I am most proud. We dubbed it 'a strangely curious place' for good reason! You would understand what a truly unique and marvelous place it was if you ever had the privilege of visiting there. It transformed lives young and old in the most positive and wonderful ways. It was a great asset to the community and especially the youth in the area but, alas, the recession and other factors forced us to close prematurely.

It has been a great privilege for me to have developed my own inner or “sixth” senses over the years and then to help others to explore and develop their own gifts. The fact is, mystics and spiritual adepts since the dawn of time have been trying to tell us that we are really spiritual beings having a human experience and that we ALL possess hidden abilities. My own personal experiences have proven that this is true and this positive spiritual concept is one of the lessons behind some of my teachings that highlight a three prong philosophy: 1) Know Yourself, 2) Find Your Path, 3) Live YOUR Life.

Olivia Stanton   (Nyla Vox)

 am from Philadelphia PA. I am a writer, artist and I enjoy photography. I’ve been through a lot. People tend to misunderstand me. They mistake my kindness for stupidity, and my tendency to lean towards Love and happiness to mean I have no dark side, when in fact there can be no light without dark. I Love to laugh, but I am quick to cry and I can be as mean as I can be nice, especially when it comes to protecting what I am passionate about. I Love helping people, but have a low tolerance for gossiping and backstabbing. My favorite season is the fall. I Love music and the arts. I dream hard, I play hard and I will never give up on my book, The Worsening. It’s not just a book to me, it serves a purpose. All I will say, is it is a story that needs to be told. I fight for a better good and I though I go about it in my own way, I have no intention on stopping. The world needs to better itself.


        I also have a YouTube channel for ASMR, as I said, I’ve had a rough time, and I know what it’s like to lay there with the day chewing at your thoughts. I have a vlogging channel as well, but promoting the book has proven to be exhausting, especially when after you drop the book, people are saying, “Oh I didn’t know you wrote a book.” I blame only myself, if they didn’t know, I didn’t convey my message properly. I maybe be late in getting things done, but I will do as I say I will I am a girl of my word. I still owe Critic a video, lol. There are some people who are simply wonderful and though I hate clowns, he’s one of them. YES I hate clowns, dolls and dummies, (the kind ventriloquist use) but I have no problem in adding things that scare me to my writing, in truth, it makes it easier if I am terrified while writing to convey the fear to my audience. I feel this holds true with all emotions.


        My favorite animal is the cat, but I suppose you know that, I used to fancy myself a dog person, but after finding some stray kittens, my heart changed. I Love dogs too, but I find more of my own disposition in the soul of a cat

After finishing her degree she moved to Ohio to work as a fashion designer and in her spare time she decided to try an acting class. The acting bug bit, and Jessica decided to make acting her full time career.
In the last few years she has been cast in more then 70 projects including music videos, TV shows and feature films. In 2010 she won an industry award for being a Rising Movie Star. Some of her favorite recent performances include: playing sorority leader in The Sleeper and she starring with horror icon Steven Geoffrey’s in the film “Mr. Hush”. She also had the chance to work with legendary director Jim Wynorski on the syfy channel film “Camel Spiders” and the established horror director Jeff Burr on “Resurection”. She was thrilled to play screen legend Marilyn Monroe in “The Black Dahlia Haunting”, having been a fan of hers for many years.
In 2012 Cameron starred in the hit TLC Show Brides of Beverly Hills for its second season. Acting as a wedding dress stylist on the show utilized Cameron’s fashion history as well as camera skills.
2013 was the first year in which Cameron stepped behind the camera to direct and produce Truth Or Dare, a torture film that she co-wrote with Jon Scott Higgins. Truth Or Dare would screen nearly 50 times all over the world and win 33 awards. Cameron would direct several short films in 2013 including a segment for the Soska sisters Blood Drive PSA. She would produce 2 more feature films (Utero and Save Yourself) before embarking on her most ambitious project yet – filming 3 movies while traveling across the USA in an rv with some of her favorite film makers. The team shot 2 narrative features (Desolation and Mania) and the documentary surrounding the process called Kill The Production Assistant. Mania would mark Cameron’s 2nd time directing a feature film.

CLEO

Cleo is a podcaster who lives in The Netherlands.  You can find her at : Twitter: @Talk2Cleo

iTunes: talk2cleo https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/talk2cleo/id636664544?mt=2 

Stitcher talk2cleo http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/cleo-style/talk2cleo?refid=stpr 

But who is she and what is her podcast about? I let some people answer that question.

Cleo introduces us to people from around the world who have interesting insight on every level.  Don't expect a slick production. There is no pretense here. I can't say that about many podcasts or people. Cleo understands something few interviewers do: Being authentic elicits authenticity. No obsequious flatterer, she. Cleo speaks from the heart, and her heart, ever curious and probative, knows more than your brain. Her guests, many or most of whom are listeners, understand this implicitly and respond accordingly. They laugh. They cry. They show who they are... to someone who truly wants to know.
Cleo is a fantastic podcaster, especially considering English is not her first language! Her guests are varied and all of them have a story to tell. Cleo is able to identify the aspect of these people that makes them unique and really focus in to bring it to the surface.
Such a good independent podcast! Cleo brings onto the show many unique individuals from around the world to share a part of they're lives. The fact that she's able to take a normal life story and make it interesting & funny is amazing! Download if you want truly good conversations & a good laugh or two!

Laure Blankma

When I was 17 I enlisted in the Navy, but entered boot camp when I was 18. I was stationed at NAS Guantanamo Bay for 1 ½ years as a Naval Aviation Storekeeper. For the rest of my 4 years I was stationed in Norfolk, VA at a drone squadron, VC-6. They were target drones used to train pilots.
In 1979 I returned home to Bozeman, MT and attended Montana State University where I earned a BS in Elementary Ed. with a math option. My first teaching job was in a one room school. The building is still there, but is no longer a school. I taught 4th -8th grade with 4 students.
I got married to a Montana farmer/rancher and had two beautiful daughters. I started writing my stories for my girls and have been writing kid’s stories off and on for over 20 years. During that time I was hired by Manhattan Christian School and have taught Middle school and 3rd grade. I have been there for 19 years now.
My book, Along the Way with Little Blue, got its start as a writing lesson for my 3rd Grade class. I wanted to show them how a lot of authors begin their stories with other author’s ideas. They then twist the plot and make the characters their own. So I read them two stories based upon Little Red Riding Hood plus my own. They then wrote their own stories based on other fairytales.
My book has taken on a life of its own, and I now have 4 more sequels that I hope to get published.
My second book, Montana Raised, I wrote and illustrated.
The third book, The Potato Duck, I wrote and a fellow teacher illustrated it.

Her love of art continued into adulthood and she has experimented in many different creative ventures over the years.

She has been illustrating children's books for other authors over the years and has only recently started dabbling in writing again. A big kid at heart and a firm believer in laughter being the best medicine her aim with her books are to spread some cheer and to raise a giggle.

Basil Pearl was born and raised on a Tennessee farm. Given her grandfather’s name, she grew up sitting in his lap and hearing stories of yesteryear. She learned of times that were not kind to those who dug out a living from a small piece of dirt. Basil has developed a great appreciation for the preservation of family farms all across the nation. This passion bleeds through each page of her soon to be released fictional novel “No-Till”.
Basil lives on a small farmstead near Knoxville, TN. She enjoys several pets that include cats, backyard chickens and a few goats. She loves weaving the personalities of her pets into the stories she writes.


Basil’s debut short story Middlesettlements was published December 27th, 2014. Basil chose this day in memory of her grandfather, Basil, since it was his birthday.   A historical fictional short story that quickly gathered over a dozen 5-star reviews.

Suzanne L. Holko

A teacher by trade, Suzanne had the aspiration of becoming an author, since writing her first poem in the sixth grade. Two decades later, she completed her first book, "Grampy and Me." Motherhood being her first priority, it would take another two decades-plus before Suzanne's aspiration became a reality, in March of 2012. This was followed by the publication of her second book, "Letters from My Father," in December of 2012. Both are non-fiction.

Suzanne grew up in the great outdoors, nurtured by the imagination and creativity it brought forth. Children were out and about all day (or so it seemed), and were home in time for dinner. Sad to see how lost this important aspect of growing up has become. The book she is currently working on, "The Lighter Side of Wisdom," reflects on those times.

 Joe Eliseon, author of The Seamless Web: A Legal Comedy, has been an attorney for most of his life, writing non-fiction about other people’s problems. Now, he’s an author writing humorous fiction about his own problems or, rather, about his take on other people’s problems. (Joe admits to no problems of his own.) Joe found non-fiction frustrating. It rarely made sense because he could only tell disjointed bits and pieces of his clients’ stories. Worse, clients considered it bad form to laugh at them. He finds fiction more satisfying. It lets him tell the whole story. Even better, he can write fiction so it makes sense. You can laugh all you want. Of course, Joe’s been other things: ambitious lower middle-class kid; obnoxious Ivy League student; bleeding-heart probation officer; self-important Manhattan Yuppie; heartless real estate salesman; high-flying corporate executive; evanescent multi-millionaire (for 36 hours, before the roof fell in); and desperate, unemployed slob. His childhood resembled a Leave It to Beaver episode scripted by Mario Puzo. He’s a doting bachelor uncle, a devotee of Harold Lloyd, Robert Benchley, Preston Sturges and Ray Bradbury and a firm believer in Truth, Justice and the American Way.

She has published fourteen books plus a colleciton of articles, and is having a ball doing it! She and her husband have two lakefront homes in Michigan where they ski in winter and boat in summer. Hobbies are traveling, reading and playing the piano. Her first book, "Stories I Haven't Told," is autobiographical. The McBride Series books are good old-fashioined detective cop stories with new technology and great looking girls thrown in. "Leon and Esther" is an historical romance with Christian overtones, set in rural Michigan in the 1920's.
The New McBride Washington Series, is centered in the Washington D.C. metro area, with global repercussions. Mike McBride has changed professions and is now a crusading United States Senator. He has married his sweetheart, Juliette who now plays a starring role in Books two and three of the Series. The author is careful to make each story complete in itself, a full length novel, in the old-fashioned meaning of a "series" rather than the more recent type of series which never seems to end.
