Simone's fourth children's book is called I Am Beautiful: When I Look at Me, I See...is set to launch on February 28, 2015 at the Toronto Urban Book Expo. This inspirational book, created for middle school aged Black girls, aims to empower and liberate them to believe that they are beautiful, despite society's notion of what "beauty" is.
In an era where the popular idealistic images of beauty are based on the western world's realism of beauty, it illustrates that beauty begins with knowing who you are, believing it, and accepting yourself as you are.

Wednesday, March 4, 3 pm ET the man with the world’s second-highest IQ and the highest IQ in America, television writer Rick Rosner joins Halli at her table when he visits The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
In 2012, The Huffington Post ranked Rosner, along with brainiacs like theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and chess Grandmaster Garry Kasparov, as one of the ten smartest people on the planet. According to the Giga Society, he has an 198 IQ which makes it all the more remarkable that, after graduating high school, Rosner forged documents, fabricated records, created disguises, and lied to officials so he could to return to high school over and again. From his teens through most of his 20s, Rosner spent time in five different high schools from Hollywood to Harlem.
All of that education and work as a stripper, a bouncer, a roller-skating waiter and a nude model somehow prepared him for his adult career as a TV writer. Rick’s credits include shows such as Remote Control, Crank Yankers, The Man Show, The Emmy Awards, The Grammy Awards and Jimmy Kimmel Live! All in all, Rosner has contributed more than 2,500 hours of broadcast television, earning himself 7 Writer’s Guild Awards and Emmy nominations.
TV Writer, brainiac, former stripper, nude model and more on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday March 4th 3 pm ET. For more information and to listen to the show visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

John Himmelman is an author/illustrator of nearly 80 books for children and books (for grown up kids) on various nature topics. He graduated School of Visual Arts in 1981, with his first book "Talester the Lizard" published later that year. Talester came about as a final assignment to create a story in his children's book illustration class. His teacher, Dale Payson, liked it enough to show to her editor at Dial - and thus began a career that continues today.
Himmelman's children's book genres range from whimsical to natural history. He is a naturalist, involved in many organizations where he gives lectures and leads trips in search of exciting flora and fauna (it all excites him). He strives to incorporate his interests with his career as an writer and illustrator because... it just makes both more fun. Sometimes, though, he just wants to make the reader laugh.

Myron believes inspiration comes in many forms and in many ways throughout one’s life. He believes that the “power of the pen” allows him to express life’s true meanings. His belief is there is no topic he cannot write about if he is truly inspired.
