Joanna Gawn and Ron Dickerson write together as The Lazuli Portals. They share a longstanding interest in spirituality, synchronicity, and the metaphysical (The Celestine Prophecy has been a key influence!)
Their writing tends to follow these themes - particularly in The Lazuli Portals series of novels - however alternative genres pop up in their other stories now and then, just to keep them on their toes, and enabling them to explore their 'shadow sides'.
They are both keen readers and enjoy listening to music - although not always the same sort!
Joanna has a maths and science background (she has a thing for spreadsheets) but discovered Reiki and 'subtle energies' when she developed a challenging health condition. That changed her life, and indirectly led to her starting to write again. She is also partial to cake, chocolate, and Breton cidre. She has a TBR list that will probably outlive her.
Ron Dickerson is proudly Cornish, with a background in rugby, business, and Round Table/Rotary. Writing enables him to explore the less 'logical' aspects of his personality. Ron is an intuitive healer, which has made for some deeply interesting discussions and experiences!
