Angela Verges
Angela Verges
Humor, Non-Fiction

Author, comedian, and edutainer Angela Verges was born in Detroit, MI. One of her favorite books as a youth was, Are you there God, it's me Margaret, by Judy Blume. In fact, she liked it so much that she wrote a book report on it in 6th grade and again in 8th grade. Shhh, don't tell her teachers. Angie began writing in 5th grade when she received her first diary. She continued keeping a journal through high school and college.

Angie is a graduate of Michigan State University and currently working in the field of recreation. Writing has always been her passion and any time she can sprinkle it with humor, she does. Angela has two adult sons who quite often fill her humor bucket with their antics. Her book Menopause Ain't No Joke started as a collection of blog posts, which have also accompanied her on stage in comedy sets. Her words continue to scream onto the pages of journals, the back of envelopes, napkins or anything handy. Angie likes to write books for children and blog about parenting experiences as she practices being a grown up.

Marian Volkman
Marian Volkman
Inspiration, Nature

Marian Volkman grew up in a family of seekers and has always been interested in the possibilities of human potential and of inter-species communication. In addition to conducting training in Traumatic Incident Reduction and the educational system of Applied Metapsychology in many countries, she maintains a private practice working with individuals using these methods. After attending the University of Michigan for three years (it was the sixties), she dropped out to pursue a more eclectic education. Years of study and travel lead her to a meeting in the early 80's with Frank A Gerbode, M.D., the developer of Applied Metapsychology and they have worked together ever since.

She is married to author and publisher Victor R. Volkman and has a daughter, Stephanie. They live in Ann Arbor Michigan with, yes, it's true, many cats. Marian contributed to the book Beyond Trauma: Conversations on Traumatic Incident Reduction, edited by Victor before completing her own book Life Skills, and her work of fiction, Turtle Dolphin Dreams. She has three more nonfiction books in the works and another work of fiction.
