Relationships, and experiences do not have to be difficult if they are experienced through the eyes of the evolution as it pertains to that perception of the world.
had studied to be an accountant, but found the business world not to be of my liking, so became a teacher of accounting instead, and taught for 22 years before retiring at 57 to write about what I had learned over a period of approximately 25 – 30 years. I had bought many spiritual books in which I found the answers I was seeking, and spent many years studying them, particularly A Course in Miracles and Love Without End – Jesus Speaks, authored by Glenda Green. I came to understand that much of what we have been taught by the church and the sciences that dealt with the universe was open to question, and in the end, had a strong desire to put my thoughts about the universe, the mind/body relationship, ego, and consciousness into a book where I could draw all that I’d read in other spiritual books together so as to bring a more unified understanding of who we are, what our purpose is, and the reason we are here to the people, and so wrote The Profound Truth of Divine Existence – A New Modern Teaching.
I have not openly discussed much of what is in the book I have written with people, except for my youngest son. He became a sounding board for my concepts and ideas, and I spent a number of years talking with him during the evenings at home here, in order to hear what he thought of them, and to also clarify in my own mind how to present them in a manner that could be understood by those who sought the spiritual path to life. Some of it is quite complex, and requires an open mind if one wishes to accept the concepts into their being.
I have written my second book Innocent and True Perception, but it has not been published yet, and probably won’t be until later in the year, as I wish to see how my first book goes.
Jimmy is a unique artist with over 20 years in the music industry. He has worked with such artists as Zebra, the Good Rats, Steve Morse, Robin Trower, Blackfoot, Wendy O. Williams, Loudness, Queensryche and producers Nile Rogers and Tom Werman.
Don't bother looking for a pigeonhole into which Jimmy Packes will fit. He just lives to rock and he rocks out how he wants. Which means he gets heavy with hard rock and metal, lays out the soulful blues grooves and just keeps it real with honest, straight up rock-and-roll energy. Packes packs a sound that sucker punches you in the gut and leaves you bleeding and begging for more.
Packes has been courted to play guitar for Ozzy Osbourne, Guns N Roses, Never the Bride, Faith No More, David Lee Roth, 21 Guns and others. Touring has carried him across the country and around the world. Packes is also the co-owner of Azimuth Jag Records (New York and London). The UK press declared him one of the leading instrumental guitarists on the globe following the release of his “Axxe to Grind” release and he was also invited to the Montreaux Jazz Festival. He has announced the forthcoming release of new music and is spending time teaching guitar, bass, band classes and vocal coaching at The Music Vault Academy in Southern California. Packes co-owns and is head engineer/producer at Holy Grail Studios at Nyack, NY.
“Guitarists at the pinnacle of their craft are few and far between. Let's just say it's been a long time since someone like Packes has come along and there aren't too many like him.”
S.C. Alban was born and raised in Northern California. After graduating from San Francisco State University, where she majored in English literature, S.C. Alban travelled for a year. She ultimately moved back to Northern California where she obtained two Education Specialist credentials and a M.A. in Education. However, her passion for writing never died.
After reading an article about another writer’s success story, she was inspired to write again for pleasure. Motivated to push her skills to the next level, she began to develop her first novel. Her first break came when some of her poetry was published in Coalesce Literary Magazine, an online publication. And though it took many years of revision and re-crafting (and many rejection letters), her novel, A Life Without Living, was picked up by Solstice Shadows. A Life Without Living is a paranormal urban fantasy and debuted on December 5, 2014.
Most recently, the first of five short stories in a series titled The Woman Inside was published in February 2015, by Summer Solstice. Unlike A Life Without Living, The Woman Inside series comments on various contemporary women’s issues. The first story, Sara, has had a stretch in the Amazon Best Sellers Top 100 List for its specific category.
These days, S.C. spends every minute she can squeeze into imagining fantastic realities for her characters, who are very real parts of her life. She is an avid hiker, loves to garden and a relentless dreamer. Both of S.C.’s titles are available through Amazon and the Solstice Publishing website. Additionally, A Life Without Living is available on Barnes and Noble online.
Joel Hunter Gun Bio -
As a horror fiction writer of the macabre, dread, and terror, I’m also a father of one, a freelance copyeditor and proofreader, a BBA student, and a recording engineer graduate. For the past ten years, I have been bouncing back and forth between living in Ohio, Arizona, and West Virginia. Aside from working to publish new and upcoming short stories, right now I’m working to release my debut horror fiction novel. Considering it a work of art more than a novel, for over twenty years I’ve meticulously planned and structured its inner workings to make it a masterpiece that horror fans will deem irresistible.
It took me a while to figure it out, but after jumping around with heavy metal and rap music dreams for so many years of my life (writing hundreds and hundreds of song lyrics), I discovered that, all along, writing horror fiction stories was my true calling. I cannot think of anything better than to spook, scare, terrorize, and to morbidly entertain my horror craving fans. I have always lived for my writing, and my hope is that my fans can see that in my work."
In the past, envisioning it to be a learning experience, I have published close to a dozen short stories on my former website at joelhuntergun.com(currently, joelhuntergun-horror-fiction-stories.com).
Dr. Terry A. Gordon graduated from Emory University with a degree in Psychology. Having completed his medical school training at what is now known as the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, a rotating internship at Doctors Hospital, Internal Medicine training at Akron General Medical Center, he then completed his Invasive Cardiology Fellowship at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation.
One of his missions in life is saving the lives of our most precious resource, our children. After the tragic death of Josh Miller, a 15-year old football player at Barberton High School, Dr. Gordon, as then president of the Summit County Ohio American Heart Association helped to raise the funds to place automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in every junior and high school. His community became the first county of its size in the nation to do so. For his efforts, the American Heart Association named him the National Physician of the Year 2002.
Through God’s direction, Terry has continued on his life’s path. In 2005, he was instrumental in procuring from the state of Ohio, $2.5 million. With a partnership with the American Heart Association and Akron General Medical Center, over 2,200 AEDs were placed in schools throughout the state of Ohio. He then convinced the state legislature to allocate an additional $2.5 million needed to complete the task of placing over 4500 devices in Ohio schools. This initiative included the cost of the AED, training five individuals in each school in the use of AEDs and CPR, as well as aligning the schools with their local paramedic units. Over 15,000 individuals received this training. Fifteen lives have been saved as a direct result of this initiative.

married with 2 boys. Holistic therapist and naturopath.
Anna comes from the rolling hills of the Devon countryside and has been a holistic therapist for the last decade or more. Having first qualified to teach yoga over 12 years ago she branched out further adding hypnotherapy and past life regression. After years of hypnotising clients or working with just one therapy, it became clear that a one size fits all approach was not actually working for most people and she began to combine therapies to seek unique solutions. In 2011 Anna was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, a chronic condition with no real cure or treatment. Her therapy work became even more important and she decided to resign from her role in schools and concentrate full time on therapy and healing. Two therapists that she visited both hinted at a healing role in her past lives, and that they both felt this was now her true calling. Completely addicted to studying, further areas were added, from meditation to angel healing, reiki to NLP and even EFT, and the Holistic Alchemist was born. It has become Anna’s life work to combine therapies, to create unique solutions. One of the biggest stumbling blocks to a lot of alternative therapies is the cost, so Anna made the decision to remain affordable for all, allowing everyone to access and try the things that might just help. Due to the time constraints Anna found there were more clients than time, so has been working on several self help courses and books that can be access anytime. Her first course and book, a beginners guide to Meditation have recently been released, and there are 10 more in the pipeline. Anna has used herself as a guinea pig and managed to free herself from a lot of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia that are so draining. Anna is a mother of 2 and has a passion for dogs, living with 5 chihuahuas,.
