Quebec Children's Book Author Dr Nicole Named One Of Top 10 Quebec Women By The Maman Dion Foundation, Founded By Celine Dion's Mother

Dr. Nicole is a best-selling author, based in Quebec, who writes children’s books that educate, inspire and teach valuable life lessons

Multi-award winning Canadian children’s book author Dr. Nicole received recognition as one of Quebec's Top 10 Women in a recent ceremony held by the Maman Dion Foundation. The Maman Dion foundation was founded by Thérèse Tanguay-Dion, known as Maman Dion, a television personality and the mother of Céline Dion. The event, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Foundation, was held on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, at the main event pavilion complex of Baie de Beauport.

The Maman Dion Foundation is an educational foundation that provides support to underprivileged children in the form of clothing, eyewear and school supplies.

In the traditions of Walt Disney and Dr. Seuss, Dr. Nicole breathes life into inanimate objects and wildly entertaining characters that engage children in powerful ways. Through parent/child interaction, her works develop a love for reading while helping children develop the most important skill of all - critical thinking. For, if a child can master the art of critical thinking, nearly everything else falls into place.

"Being selected by Maman Dion’s Foundation as one the 10 top Quebec women of influence was the most important day of my life", Dr. Nicole stated. "We traveled together to Quebec. She told us Celine’s story. She sang for us as she did with Céline when she was young. This mother is the woman behind her world famous girl."

As it appears in her website, in the last 2 years, Dr. Nicole’s books have won numerous awards.

Nicole is entered in the 2016 '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading Book Awards'. '50 Great Writers' focuses on the story of the author, rather than on a particular book. Members of the public can read her entry and vote at The Authors Show site at

In her essay, she wrote: "My intentions regarding being an author are to inspire children to read, to set their imaginations free and to encourage good decision-making regarding health, safety and moral responsibility. Writing children’s books is a way for me to give back and be a positive source to the community. I have dedicated my life to changing the world one reader at a time."

Dr. Nicole has sold over 150,000 books in her career. She is highly regarded for her work with children’s books and a health guide for families. Her goals are to create in children a love for reading and to create interaction and engagement.

Award Winning Author Dana Lyons Announces New Paranormal Thriller Novel, 'The Road To Babylon'

Lyons brings readers stories no one else could write. Her books feature quantum level adventures that combine science with spirituality.

Award winning author Dana Lyons has announced a new paranormal thriller release, 'The Road To Babylon'.

Dana Lyons creates stories no one else could write. Her books feature reincarnated lovers, time traveling souls, and an epic battle against ancient powers and alien forces. All of her books are fast paced, engaging and enlightening, written in contemporary time with modern elements as well as scenes from the ancient past. She takes her readers to worlds ancient and contemporary for adventures of the heart, mind, and spirit.

The new paranormal thriller details an epic battle against evil forces that could bring about a renaissance for humanity — or it might call to action an ancient Brotherhood that frightens even the Illuminati.

In the storyline of 'The Road To Babylon', Eli J. Peterson has infiltrated the Illuminati, the world’s most secret and feared society. Suddenly, he is a threat causing them to fear him — a threat that can’t be tolerated.

But Peterson has a secret, and a mission that will destroy the Illuminati if he can correctly follow the clues placed before him one at a time. Aiding him in this journey are the wealthy St. Germain family, along with a brilliant female archeologist, and a descendant of the world’s most famous Egyptologist. With their help, Peterson is poised to fulfill a destiny put in motion millennia before his birth.

Through museums and deep into Egypt’s ancient past, to abandoned sites of long-ago castles and the mysterious hidden bosom of Besu, Peterson and his friends follow the prophecy encoded in his blood.

"What's your idea of empowerment?" asked Lyons. "Superman? A Marvel comic book hero? Lucifer walking the streets of Los Angeles? The Road to Babylon is my vision of empowerment for humanity, eliminating all political, financial and gender oppression. I wrote The Rosetta Coin and it's sequel The Road to Babylon because in my heart I believe humanity has a tremendous potential yet undiscovered. If only we were free of political oppression and deprivation of opportunity we could access our true power, changing the future of this planet and all its inhabitants."

Dana Lyons was chosen as one of 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading in the 2015 '50 Great Writers Book Awards'. Her body of work also includes:

'The Rosetta Coin', an adventure that could change the world and humanity's view of science, religion and mankind;

'A Love Reborn', a modern tale of ancient love, magic and betrayal;

'Heart Of The Druae', a time travel romance featuring a love that bridges the past and the future.

'The Road To Babylon' has received rave reviews. One said, "What a great finish to the 'Rosetta Coin', again capturing me from the first page to the last page making me feel as if I were a part of the journey." Another stated, "Sheer brilliance. It should be re-read."

Dana Lyons is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at All of Dana's books are available at Amazon and other online retail outlets. More information is available at her website at

NDE Expert Brian McLaughlin Co-Hosts TV Episodes Dealing With Suicide Prevention, Bullying, Mental Health And PTSD

McLaughlin's book about his NDE details his totally unique near death experience. It is raw and it's real. There is no embellishment, no preaching and no hidden agenda

Brian McLaughlin, near death experience expert, speaker and author of a highly praised book about NDE, 'A Flight Without Wings, My Experience With Heaven', recently served as co-host of two segments on Madhouse TV. McLaughlin's near death experience brought him to a state of unshakable peace and total freedom from fear. His experience gives him a unique perspective on topics such as suicide prevention, bullying and PTSD.

The October 10th segment of 'Chapters Rap' on Madhouse TV addressed suicide prevention, mental health and bullying and focused on creating awareness and solutions. The segment featured Linda Rossi, founder of 'Chrissy's Wish' and a local representative of the Long Island Crisis Center.

The October 17th segment focused on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The segment featured Lou Falco, Director of Operation Initiative Foundation Inc., an organization that provide resources to Veterans and families of Veterans.

 McLaughlin stated: “Recently I signed on to co-host an internet TV show known as the ‘Chapters Rap’, which may become ‘Double Vision’ at some point. My contribution to the show is my perspective on the common element of fear.

"The past two shows dealt with suicide prevention in youth AND veterans, as well as bullying and PTSD. The fear factor is obvious in some topics, but may be more obscure as it relates to the subjects mentioned here.

"There is an age old dilemma of dealing with self worth, self esteem, finding one’s identity which may manifest themselves in the form of becoming a bully. This creates a fear for the victim. Where that leads is anyone’s guess. It sometimes culminates in completing suicide. Understanding the dynamics of bullying may bring some clarity to the victim in finding an alternative option.

"PTSD may be more complex, but still exhibits some connection to fear in exploring the different remedies available. My best guess is that sufferers of PTSD might suffer with, among other things, a fear of isolation in facing these complexities.

"All in all, many of these adversities in life contain underlying fears of failure,  certainly the fear of an unknown solution/result, and maybe fear of embarrassment in seeking support... among other fears.

"The message I try to convey is to seek help, as you may be surprised at how many people want to help.  It can be a difficult emotion to deal with alone."

Brian McLaughlin shows us clearly in his book how we can experience a life filled with peace in the midst of discord. We can find freedom from fear when faced with uncertainty. We can overcome any form of anxiety, even while facing down threats from within and without. Depression, despair and dismay can easily be transformed into peace, confidence, contentment and joy in one single stroke. What is this most powerful concept that will allow us achieve these states?

The key is to accept that the afterlife really does exist - without question. This has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with truth. While the afterlife cannot be proven using a scientific method based in the physical, it can be proven through one's experience. McLaughlin is one of very few people who have had that experience. He speaks from that experience and his readers and audiences reap the benefits.

A Flight Without Wings' offers readers a look at the near death experience from an unbiased point of view. It is the presentation of the material that sets this book apart from the other books about the near death experience. It is raw and it's real. There is no embellishment and no hidden agenda. While his book has a spiritual flavor certainly, there is no preaching and no religious messages. It is his near-death experience, just as it happened.

McLaughlin's experience changed the course of his life forever.  It instilled in him what we all seek - certainty about life after death. And with that a peace of  mind that can never be shaken, nor can it be doubted. His near death experience brought a sense of clarity. It brought a sense of real, lasting peace. He now knows with certainty that we exist forever. It is that simple message he brings to his audience, both through his book and at his speaking engagements.

Brian McLaughlin was chosen as one of '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' in 2015. Reviews of 'A Flight Without Wings' have been overwhelmingly positive. Dr. Penny Sartori, author of 'The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences', said "This book will help others who have had an NDE to make sense of their experience and will also help those close to someone who has had an NDE because NDEs affect close family members and friends too."

Jack Magnus, a reviewer with Readers Favorite, called the book a "well written and moving memoir that neither delves into the fanciful or dogmatic,...”  "…Well worth reading, and is highly recommended." Another stated, "Being a mother who lost her only child I found it to be a great comfort to me." Another said, "I have read many accounts such as these, but this beautifully written account simply touched my heart in ways that previous ones have not."

Mark Feuerstein, Actor (Royal Pains, USA Network) wrote: “I have read it and I think it’s an inspiring tale of deep insight and so personal and yet so universal . . . such profound perspective.”

Brian McLaughlin is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at 'A Flight Without Wings' is available at Amazon, Payhip and other book retailers. More information is available on his website at:

Canadian Indie romantic fiction novelist Rusty Blackwood has announced a series of upcoming events throughout the Niagara area. Blackwood is the author of two romantic fiction books, 'Passions In Paris' and 'Willow's Walk'.

Rusty was interviewed on The Joe Show for a segment of Fun Food Friday. The show will air on October 28th at Blackwood also did a reading from 'Willow's Walk'.

On October 30th she will hold the first official book signing for 'Willow's Walk' at Ancaster Chapters, Ancaster, Ontario between 1:00 and 4:30 pm.

She will also be taking part in the Ridley College Xmas Market on Friday, December 2nd from 2-7pm at the Ridley College Fieldhouse, 2 Ridley Rd., St. Catharines, ON.

"I am very much looking forward to sharing the October 28th airing of my participation in The Joe Show's Fun Food Friday," stated Rusty Blackwood. "I had such fun taking part in this weekly Friday segment, and I hope my readers will enjoy listening to it." Miss Blackwood goes on to add, "I am also pleased to announce my first official signing for my newly modified 'Willow's Walk'. Ancaster Chapters, located on the outskirts of Hamilton, Ontario, is an interesting and extremely bustling bookstore, so I am hoping to meet new readers, and discuss my newest romance novel with them. The same can be said with regard to my return to the Field house at Ridley College for their Annual Christmas Market. 'Passions in Paris' and I took part in it last year, and I am pleased to be invited back. This is, without a doubt, one of Niagara's largest Christmas venues, so I am greatly looking forward to it, and to be once again offering 'Passions in Paris', as well as the newly re-released 'Willow's Walk'."

Blackwood's latest romantic fiction novel, 'Willow's Walk', follows the release of 'Passions in Paris: Revelations of a Lost Diary'. Her first romantic fiction novel is a sweeping saga written in the tradition of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' and 'What Dreams May Come'. It has been compared to Erich Segal's 'Love Story' and Nicholas Sparks' 'The Notebook'.

Willow's Walk' is a gripping new tale, certain to hold readers captive from the very first page. Set in the beautiful city of Ottawa, Canada in 2003, this touching story centers on the life and times of a woman determined to prevail at all costs, regardless of what is set before her, the result of which is certain to leave the reader reeling in its wake.

The path each person walks is entirely their own. The pitfalls along that path, as well as the way in which they are dealt with are entirely up to the individual. But Willow Sutherland-Crosby walks a far-different path, and with her own agenda.

Abuse, deception, intrigue, and a never ending quest for happiness and love - will she find these, or will her blind determination be her downfall?

'Willow's Walk' has received a number of 5 star reviews from professional reviewers. Maria Beltran stated, "I highly recommend this book." Gisela Dixon said, “I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the life of a person presented in such a wonderful manner." Another said, "Brutally honest. I was touched by the bittersweet conclusion that sometimes purpose and happiness are only found through great tragedy ..."

'Passions in Paris' has also received rave reviews. Linkk Kula Kane said, "Passions in Paris I think stands its ground with these other powerful romantic stories like 'The Notebook' by Nicolas Sparks." Reader Fred Pifer stated that “'Passions', is a fascinating book of a love story that seemed to be written with me in mind. In the book 'Love Story' by Erich Segal, he told of a deep abiding love story that reminds me of Cullen and Joy’s in Ms. Blackwood’s book, but the twists of intrigue and mystery that she adds keeps the reader on edge throughout."

Information on the new romantic fiction release, including a new book trailer, is available at Blackwood's site on the 'Willow' page. Readers can download paperback and Kindle versions of both books at Amazon sites worldwide, including
