About the Author
Agatha Award Nominees and Lovey Award Winners
Honora Finkelstein has been an intelligence officer with the U. S. Navy, a small-press publisher, a technical writer, and a prize-winning features editor for Arundel Communications in Northern Virginia. She has been widely published in newspapers, magazines, and journals, has co-authored two nonfiction books, and has taught futurist and self-development workshops across the United States, in Canada, and in Europe. She taught workshops for the International Women's Writing Guild for 15 years. She has a Ph.D. in English and has taught Western culture, literature, and writing at several universities, most recently the University of Southern Indiana and the University of Evansville, both in Evansville, Indiana, and the Union Institute & University in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Her interest in metaphysical subjects goes back to childhood when she had her first out-of-body experience while learning to tie her shoes. In the 1990s she produced and hosted a talk show on self-development and futurist topics called Kaleidoscope for Tomorrow on community cable television in Fairfax, Virginia, an experience that qualified her as an “agent provocateur.” She also does past life and Tarot card readings and occasionally talks to ghosts.
Susan Smily, during her 25 years in the classroom, was an author, publisher, and workshop leader in elementary science education in Canada, Australia, and the United States. She created her own business for the development and production of a wide range of elementary education materials, worked as a writer, editor, and consultant with several educational programs, and made presentations at over 40 school and district professional development days. She was also once the Science Teacher of the Year (cover girl) for Boreal Science Supply Catalogue and as a result had coffee stains on her face in every high school in Canada.
She is the author of “Pianissimo,” a one-act play that was presented off Broadway on April 13-15, 1998, at the Festival of Collective Voices, at the Harold Clurman Theatre in New York.
She has traveled extensively in North America, Europe, Australia, and the Far East. She developed an interest in metaphysical studies in the early 1990s and has since become involved in studying many areas of spirituality, including Native American, Vedanta, and Kabbalah. She is also an energy reader and “psychic diagnostician.”
