Lorraine Pestell was born in London and has lived and worked as an IT professional all over the world, including the UK, several European capitals, the USA and Singapore, before moving to Melbourne, Australia, for the turn of the millennium. Having suffered from chronic clinical depression since childhood, and later diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after a violent marriage and other challenging events, she turned to creative writing as therapy and to escape from the world.
A passionate advocate for mental health awareness and rational suicide, Lorraine has two main goals for her writing: first, to inspire fellow sufferers to rise above their symptoms and make a success of their lives; and second, to encourage non-sufferers to tolerate, support and even love those afflicted with mental illness in their quest to live a "normal" life.
The six-part contemporary fiction serial, "A Life Singular", is truly Lorraine's life's work, starting out as an adolescent romance in her early teens. It has since become six long books exploring the human mind and social justice, wrapped in the universal theme of love and our endless fascination for celebrity. Parts One to Four are available now, with Part Five due for release in March 2016.

Author Ellen Butler has lived in the Northern Virginia area for thirty years. Originally living inside the beltway, she moved to Prince William County ten years ago, in an effort to flee traffic congestion. Unfortunately, the traffic followed her down here, but the community keeps her family firmly rooted in PWC. She has a Master’s in Public Administration and Policy and her history includes a long list of writing and editing for dry but illuminating professional newsletters and journals, and windy papers on public policy and political science.
