Jay Alden Bailey
Genres: Satire, Memoir
Jay Alden Bailey grew up in Durham, Connecticut in the 1960s and through the '70s. He was originally born in Portland, Connecticut, and also resided in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida where his parents enjoyed a wealthy two-home lifestyle uncommon for the times.
In a dramatic change of events, his father kidnapped Bailey and his older brother, hiding them away to live with a woman in Meriden, Connecticut, using them as pawns in a vicious divorce. They were told that their mother was dead and was lost for a time.
The boys were found by the authorities and were held in an orphanage until the divorce was settled.
They were reunited with their mother and went to live in Durham as penniless as their father could possibly make them.
Bailey, happy to be back with his mother, watched her struggle with poverty, and loss of support from the Church and her strict Irish-Catholic family, who blamed her for the loss of her husband and all the problems the family faced.
He grew up watching the changing times of the sixties and his mother facing adversity with powerful perseverance.
As the boys grew up in a turbulent time of social unrest with little supervision, Bailey matured quickly and began early to question the directives and motives of the adults and people of authority over him.
He found internal peace and escape from negative forces around him in the deep forest behind his home; where he grew up playing with wildlife and developing a profound appreciation for the natural environment.
As he advanced in age, he became aware of the poor guidance authorities at school who were out of focus on the skill set of the individual. He learned to question authority and take almost everything it pushed upon him with a grain of salt.
After graduating high school, Bailey went through a series of entry-level jobs and experienced many small businesses and their practices. Continuing to question the motives, values, and competency of his superiors, he became self-employed by the time he was twenty years old.
He started a residential tree service and over the years has been involved in all sorts of building and maintenance of an eclectic group of real estate and personal property projects.
With all best intentions and wisdom beyond his age, Bailey continued to be gullible. He was often taken advantage of by his own positive outlook on life and generally caring for the people he encountered and dealt with.
As he looks back now at over 40 years in business, he finds his own mistakes in trusting the good nature of others to be his biggest downfall and his biggest asset.
After years of trying his hand at many different things from arboriculture to building and landscape architecture, and being exposed to all sorts of trades and various occupations along with hobbies that include oil painting and interior design, Bailey now enjoys writing about his experiences and expresses himself in the medium of being an author. He shares his stories and anecdotes with satirical humor and a philosophical outlook.
He owes his vocabulary, English skills, and perseverance to his mother who was an avid reader and advocate of libraries.

Linn Aspen grew up in northern Sweden where the understated beauty and quietness of the landscape fed her contemplative nature. At age twenty, and thirsty for life experiences, she left Scandinavia for the USA. Since then, she has raised three children and engaged in many careers. Most valuable for the writing of her novel, The Dreamtidings of a Disgruntled Starbeing; Life with a psychopathic brother, was her work as a holistic practitioner. Working as a hypnotherapist, intuitive healer and channeler, Reiki Master, and Shamanic teacher all gave her intimate insights into the many challenges we face, as well as the innate strength of the human spirit.
Thus, The Dreamtidings of a Disgruntled Starbeing has sprung from this experience and from Linn’s lifelong exploration of life’s mysteries through philosophy, and metaphysics, brought on by her extrasensory perception and her own, personal, experiences of extra-conscious phenomenons.
She is now retired, or perhaps more accurately revived as, in this stage of her life she gets to embrace, not only grandchildren but a welcome return to a quiet and peaceful landscape, this time in Vermont, where she lives with her husband and their two tiny, tiny dogs.
Her novel can be found on Amazon and everywhere that books are sold.
Arabella Maghri is a British author who writes ‘feelgood’ erotica with hetero, bisexual and lesbian themes. She is also an international businesswoman, juggling overseas business trips with keeping her readers happy. One recent reviewer was moved to write, "I truly believe that you are the Goddess of Love walking the Earth amongst us mere mortals and sharing your Love with words.” She also writes in other genres under a different pen name. This is to keep her erotic life (and loves) a secret from her other audience and, most importantly, from her business associates. They would blow a gasket if they knew what she got up to. So far she’s published five books of erotica - three novellas and two full-length novels - in paperback and kindle ebook form. All are published exclusively via Amazon so that Kindle Unlimited subscribers can download and read them for free. Otherwise, her books start from $0.99, so most can afford to enjoy them. When she’s not travelling, Arabella lives in Cambridge, England with her long-term partner Greg and two cats.
