Bio: Deb has had a lifelong passion for the British monarchy and is a proud royalist. As a young wife herself, she connected with Princess Diana watching her royal wedding over 30 years ago. She thrilled to watch Diana’s son Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton on the streets of London in 2011. She also attended a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in 2014.

Deb’s first novel: Diana, A Spencer in Love is an historically accurate yet fictional view of Princess Diana’s first extraordinary year in royal life. It tells the story from Diana’s point-of-view exploring what she was thinking and feeling during this incredible time in her life.

Watch for the next two books by the Princess Diana Storyteller: Diana, A Spencer in Turmoil and Diana, A Spencer Forever to continue Princess Diana’s journey!

Bio: Bryan’s wide-ranging personal interests are the foundation for his professional writing career. A series of successful academic text projects between 2004 and 2013 for US-based Gale Publishing and Lerner Media (books garnering three successive American Library Association ‘Science Text of the Year’ awards), provided the springboard for Bryan’s three ambitious Canadian works set for 2017 publication:

* ‘A Boy from Botwood: Pte. Arthur W Manuel, Royal Newfoundland Regiment, 1914-1919’, Dundurn Press (Toronto), January 17, 2017 publication (co-author Andrew Traficante) … a remarkable, long-hidden soldier’s memoir, a Gallipoli, Somme, and Passchendaele survivor. This story is the only detailed, first hand account of a WWI North American soldier’s time as a German POW (17 months, including Manuel’s capture, escape from a notorious ‘slave camp’, and recapture…)

* ‘Its Time to Keep our Word’ Dundurn Press (Toronto), July 1, 2017 publication … a provocative solution to Canada – First Nations and First Peoples’ treaty disputes, with Professor Michael Coyle (UWO Law, aboriginal rights expert), and Andrew Traficante

* ‘Paradigms’, a forthcoming (late 2017) work co-authored with John Allan, former Durham Region Police Service Homicide Unit head, including a remarkable account of the now-notorious 2014 Alan Smith ‘cold case’ murder prosecution

Bryan is also a founding partner of United Front Entertainment (Toronto), where he heads its IP rights acquisition & management. UFE is a multidimensional Canadian and international film distribution company and . Bryan divides his time between Whitby, where he resides with his family, and Sault Ste. Marie’s Tagona Creative.

Living Underground, (Seraphim Editions, 2012)

Living UndergroundSheila Martin’s dismal childhood is irrevocably transformed when Sigmund Maier, the family’s enigmatic German tenant, introduces her to opera, music and much more. When he reappears in her ordered and successful adult life, Sigmund asks for her help with an immigration issue. Will she now discover the truth of why he vanished years ago?

Sheila soon discovers that “truth” has no clear definition and memories are nebulous as she is drawn into the turmoil and accusations surrounding his life before and during World War II. As she struggles with her own issues and family conflicts, she is forced to finally confront the secrets she has held for over 30 years.

Moving back and forth in time, this novel explores the ambiguity of human emotion – how our natures can embody both the ideals and delights of love alongside the most base and dispassionate sensibilities.

Bio: A young writer in his early 20’s trying to establish his voice in the world as a fiction writer. Projects and written works represent conceptual views and interpretations of spiritual values, interconnected systems, and the ideals of “moving the human race forward”. In these works, characters, places, events, timelines, perspective are representations of the many variances of life that both motivate and hinder us as a collective. In these attempts, it is my goal to compound all my knowledge, experience, and wisdom (yet never finished accumulating) into one concentric field of perspective on how we live our lives, and how we could live our lives.
