ReShonda Tate Billingsley always did have an active imagination. From making up stories to crafting award-winning poems, the national bestselling author has always maintained a love for telling stories. After numerous rejections from publishers, ReShonda stepped out on faith, established her own publishing company, and released her debut novel, My Brother’s Keeper. The book caught the attention of one of the country’s top literary agents, who secured a deal for ReShonda with megahouse publisher, Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books.
A former television and radio news reporter, ReShonda has been in the journalism business for more than two decades. Currently, she is the co-host of From Cover to Cover literary talk radio show, a freelance reporter, an editor for the Houston Defender Newspaper, as well as a professional editor, ghost writer and literary consultant. ReShonda recently added ‘actress’ to her impressive resume, starring in the national touring stage play “Marriage Material,” along with Allen Payne, Tank, T-Boz, Michael Colyar and Jill Marie Jones.

A Silly Rhyming Alphabet Book About Animals from A to Z, Emily-Rose's Day at the Farm, and a coloring book; Coloring and Activity Book: Based on A Silly Rhyming Alphabet Book About Animals from A to Z. 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.

Geronimo Redstone is the pen name adopted for fiction releases by a two-time award-winning urban policy advocate, an accomplished public speaker, and a self-described multiculturalist. In his debut novel and three-part tale, The Bachelor Scrolls, Redstone maneuvers the imagination with lyric writing that walks the line between the old and the new: Gothic fiction and urban fantasy. His narrative style is inspired by classics of Western epic such as Dante’s Divine Comedy and Milton’s Paradise Lost. However, he re-invents the epic as a modern genre by blending themes of urban decay with a passion for ancient Egypt informed by years of research—as well as visits to temple sites and tombs along the Nile. It was at Boston University, his undergraduate alma mater, that Redstone’s literary interests were originally formed as a member of a creative writers’ collective. It was also there that he first became interested in the linkages between Egyptian and Western civilizations.

He went on to receive his Masters degree from the University of Phoenix. Ra'Mone is currently living in Miami, Florida; a place that he cites as his second home. Due to a desire to provide people with an uncensored, informative, and uninhibited place to learn and express one's self, regarding everything sexuality; Ra'Mone created the website The Quis Box. It includes everything from a blog, discussion forum, videos, and more. He is also the Founder and President of True T.A.L.E.N.T.S. Foundation, Inc.; a 501c3 nonprofit that he started in 2011. Its mission is to mentor and enrich the youth of our communities, ages 13-18 years old. With talents including music and the dramatic arts; Ra'Mone finds joy in writing, cooking, entertainment, exercising, eating, and traveling...just to name a few.
He initially released his 1st book District 69: The Crimson Edition to rave reviews courtesy of his own company Kace Books, LLC. Eventually he acquired the attention of Grind 2 Glory Publications and his 1st novel was released October 26, 2014. His followup to his smash hit first novel, is to be released January 2015 and it is entitled District 69: The Color Haven. This talented up and coming author has a gift with his manner of story telling. He has a bright future and a lot of things coming his way.
I have travelled the world, mentoring and learning from world changers; spoken internationally on relationships and love; and worked with the best in the legal field and corporate America. I've chased hurricanes to Florida creating the world's first radio crisis-intervention, trauma-response platform; responded to 911, all the while acting as a crisis intervention spokesperson for major News media; wrote books on relationships; launched cutting edge mentoring and leadership businesses; acted as a consigliore for executives at major Fortune 500 companies such as Hewlett-Packard and for learning institutes such as California Institute of Technology; and worked with families and businesses in closely held companies.
What I have learned along the way is different than you might imagine. In all of this exploring and learning, crisis intervention, and business consulting I discovered a few secrets about relationships: how they work, why they fail, and maybe the biggest secret of all--why they thrive. That's why I wrote "Get Love: How to Transform Your Love Life," because if there is one common denominator to any relationship in your life--it's you. Your love life cannot change until you do. So, Get Love™... you deserve it."
