About the Author
Matthew Thuney: Mystified Scribe Everything started falling into place when Matthew and his wife moved to the hinterlands of northwest Washington. Lo and behold, he rediscovered his journalistic muse, reporting on his bumbling attempts to adapt to country living. He rediscovered his radio voice when a small band of crazed volunteers fired up a community radio station. And he rediscovered his spiritual roots as new friends and neighbors approached Matthew to give eulogies and even preside over the marriages of loved ones. Who'da thunk it? Certainly not his long-suffering spouse, who (thankfully) remains at his side. Nor their puzzled families, who long ago gave up trying to figure Matthew out. Nor their two-and-a-half cats, who are always giving him quizzical looks that seem to say, "What the heck are you up to now?" or "Where's the treats?" or "Will you sit down already--I need a lap." Matthew's literary influences include Kurt Vonnegut, Richard Brautigan, James Thurber, and Douglas Adams (whether they want to be included or not). Ellen Clark: Ambient Artist In her formative years Ellen studied fine art and business at the University of Utah, attended the Salt Lake Academy of Graphic and Fine Arts and attended Successful Artist School. She has more recently taken courses at Western Washington University , Shoreline College and accomplished Teaching Artist Training through the Washington State Arts Commission. For personal growth she has a CTM through Toastmasters International and is a graduate of Excellence Northwest. Always interested in the evolutionary trail of life, Ellen has been a fashion illustrator for a sporting goods company, cartographer for an engineering firm, product illustrator and copywriter for a nationwide drugstore, manager for several photography labs, and graphic designer for various ad agencies. Recent work includes creating sequential art for stories and books, painting public murals, being lead scenic painter for a 1500 seat theatre, teaching art to children and adults and having an annual commission to festively paint the featured window at Bellingham’s Cruise terminal. She has been influenced by such artists as Peter Max, Maxfield Parrish, Vincent van Gogh, Aguste Rodin, Leonardo de Vinci and Buonarroti Michelangelo.
