    About the Author: "Rania Alammar is a Saudi ex-journalist, living in Berlin since she fled her country Saudi Arabia due to the unbearable governmental oppressiveness which inflicted her own way of life but more on her people who are against the methods of the ruling of Al Saud royal family. She never dreamed she would become an author. Not about Diana anyway but her life took her to that direction and she never resisted. During the first months of 2013, Rania took the decision to leave the country to work with the opposition groups to the Saudi regime. An extended trip across many countries in the Middle East and Europe started. But there was always something in her mind and heart that pointed to her to research Princess Diana's case what caused her to write this book. Rania Alammar has released a new book on the case of Diana Princess of Wales under the title "Diana The Abduction Mystery Solved". The book is considered to be a thorough study of different sources and several investigative books that revives another possibility of what happened to Diana Princess of Wales in 1997. It's a new reading between the lines that opposes the published result. In the book, Alammar has not only denounced the British courts' judgement in 2008 which ruled that what happened was unlawful killing, but furthermore she disagreed with all the investigative writers who believed in the murder theory. Her search for answers to many previously unanswered questions lead her to the conclusion that, contrary to the general belief that Diana died of her injuries, she was in fact, abducted after the repatriation of her coffin to London on 31st August 1997. And as a result of this study, which took more than six years of the author's life, Alammar concluded that in fact the investigations' masking different medical evidence was not in order to hide a pregnancy as rumored, but to omit the existence of what might have raised suspicion in the nature of the body itself. The author adds a very eerie point in her book where she wrote that what occurred actually reflects the presence of another woman's corpse that was embalmed in France and then autopsied in London on August 31. This explanation to the famous case, which had an enormous impact on the modern history, claimed by the Saudi author is unprecedented and it might be the answer to why Princess Diana's case has always been an unsolved mystery."

    About the Author: "Cheray Gardison has a very unique story. With having to combat suicidal tendencies within her nine year old son, she was inspired to write Provoked To Anger some years later to bring awareness to this growing epidemic. After finishing the book and publishing it in March of 2014, on April 11, 2014 she lost her father to suicide. Because he never got the opportunity to read it himself, she wondered that if he had of, would that have made a difference in whether or not he would have gone through with it all. During the initial shock of her father's untimely death, Cheray was surprised with those around her, young and old, who opened up and confessed their own recent struggles with suicidal thoughts. That's when she received the revelation that cancer is NOT the number one killer today, but it is indeed SUICIDE. Because of her faith in Jesus, she believes, whether it be good or back, nothing happens just to happen. Her being inspired prior to her father's death to share this message was God's way of speaking to her about the issue. The loss of her own father in this way was just confirmation that it's a big problem. Her goal now is to help Christian parents, teachers, church leaders and even non-believers to understand the battle that we are fighting today; especially within our children. With all the violence and deception that is going on in the world many question "why"? The answer? We are fighting an unseen enemy and his job is to steal, to kill and to destroy. Unfortunately, he is doing a good job accomplishing his mission. Now it's time for us to get focused on the important things of life and fight him back with the weapons Jesus left for us to fight with!"

    About the Author: "Nobody will deny that serial killer thrillers have captivated the market for generations. My goal has always been to give readers all of the disturbing hallmarks they crave, while also pummelling them with highly-original characters and plot twists they have never come across before. I almost throw them into a movie and force them to be a character I had my first paperback book published in 2005 which is called *Show No Fear *the book is an autobiographical account of when I worked in hi-profile nightclubs in London back in the nineties. Writing that story stirred something inside me, and I enjoyed the writing experience so much that soon after *Show No Fear* was published I enrolled in an Open University fiction writing course, which I passed. That was just over ten years ago now, and since then I have written six other books which include several ebooks covering various subjects. I have now written four crime novels, *Necessary Evils* and its sequel *Nemesis*, *Never Say Die* (my homage to the Ian Fleming novels) and my latest crime fiction work *Dark City."

    About the Author: "Karen Millie-James was born in North London to a father who had escaped Germany with the kindertransport in 1939 and a mother who was a talented window dresser and designer in London’s West End. Inspired to do well, Karen studied business and languages at the University of Westminster which led to her joining the legal department of Levi Strauss, quickly being promoted to European Group Company Secretary where she remained until the company closed down its UK headquarters. For the following ten years, Karen worked for a multi-discipline organisation in Central London but it was always Karen’s dream to set up her own consultancy which she did twenty-three years ago. Now Karen is widely recognised internationally as an expert in the corporate field and she sits on many boards of directors in an advisory capacity. A couple of years ago she was asked to mentor MBA students at the University of Westminster on a voluntary basis to which she agreed with much pleasure. Karen never intended to write a book but what started as a hobby in her spare time away from the office, working in the evenings until late into the night and at weekends, has now become a new and exciting part of her life. Writing The Shadows Behind Her Smile has become her passion made easier due to her background in business, literature and linguistics and having a vivid imagination. Karen now lives in the Buckinghamshire countryside with her husband of three years and their three dogs. She still works full-time in her business but the remainder is spent writing, playing tennis, going to the theatre and travelling, and having quality time with her daughter who is a professional performer. The sequel Where In The Dark will be released at the end o 2016."

    About the Author: "Monica L. Smith lives a vast contrast in lifestyles. She has been working in the medical field since 1997, first as a Certified Nursing Assistant, then in 2005 as a Medication Aide and, since 2013, as a Licensed Practical Nurse. She was born in Louisville, Kentucky, where she received her diploma. She then moved to Maricopa, Arizona, with her husband and 3 out of 9 children. When she isn’t working, she enjoys old-school television shows such as “Perry Mason”, “Matlock”, “Forensic Files”, and more currently, “The First 48.” Her creative side began to emerge when she tried her hand at writing. She published A Softer Side of Me, a book of 10 poems focusing on her “normal” but inspirational life, including her husband, children and career. It spent time as #1 in the poetry genre on Amazon. But much like her character, there’s another side to Monica L. Smith, who has realized that she has a passion for urban erotic fiction. She enjoys writing what she calls “no-no” sensual sex scenes and while she does explore the dark side, she also firmly believes in writing about finding love, and hopes to inspire women to find their balance between sexuality and true love. She claims she may not actually do what she writes about, but she feels a connection to it and enjoys the thrill that drives her to see her stories through to their exciting climax and conclusion."

During his junior year, he studied at Oxford University and travelled throughout Europe. After graduating in 1968, Riese enlisted in the Air Force one step ahead of his draft board's invitation to join the army.

Discharged from the military in 1972, he attended Boston University on the GI Bill for a Master's degree in Broadcast Journalism. The following summer he was hired to script and film videotapes about government social programs for the elderly. His videotape grant ran out in 1976, but luckily at that time, companies were eager to hire people for their IT departments. With no computer experience, Riese was hired by Liberty Mutual Insurance. He learned later that the reason he was hired was his writing and communications background. He says, "This goes to show you that an English degree is a valuable asset!" During his 35 years in information technology, the industry evolved from mainframes to personal computers using the internet. He retired from Massachusetts Financial Services in spring of 2012.

At age 60 she took a year to drive from Boston to Los Angeles with only her dogs and an inquisitive nature. She walked all over Greece with a broken toe, and regularly enjoys ghost hunting. These are journeys that give her inspiration. Dubbed Lady Elizabeth of the Orange Purse by her friend and mentor, Eva Shaw PhD. Lady E, was recently "tiarafied" by her sister, who in her infinite wisdom saw the need for a crown of enlightenment. Lady E, having been a real estate goddess for thirty odd years, proclaimed the crown a fit. She likes to write in the warm winters of South Texas and the cool summers of mountainous, Western New Mexico. That is, when her doggies, three Bichons will let her alone. They try to help with the writing, but they really don’t type very well. As a confirmed chocoholic, Ancient Alien and NCIS aficionado, and wanderer, Lady E squeezes in time to write everyday. She posts to her blog at least three times a week and reads until she can’t keep her eyes open any longer. Currently Ms. Tullos resides in Rockport, Texas located on the Gulf of Mexico and for half the year she lives on top of a mountain in Apache Creek, New Mexico. Her three hilarious dogs keep her in stitches."
