Ben Tousey

Life comes with a quandary. It always ends, and it ends badly. And while you may only be alive for a few decades, you'll be dead for billions of them; and being dead might not be everything it's cracked up to be. Ben Tousey's books explore this concept. What is life, and what does it mean juxtaposed alongside ‘death, what is it and what does that mean?'

Ben's fiction explores the deeper, and sometimes darker questions we struggle with: about ourselves, the world we live in, and our connection to it. Using occult themes, he explores, on a very deep level, what it means to be human… alive and dead.

His books are highly rated by readers for this unique approach. Readers also comment on the almost seamless overlapping of the natural and the supernatural.

But what readers enjoy most is the connection the characters have to each other. This character development creates such vivid imagery and emotional connection that you can't help but find yourself concerned by their experiences as they move through the many twists and plot turns along the way.

Ben's books include:

And his vampire series,
The Eye of the Morning:
And due out in 2014,
the fourth in the series:


Benjamin David

According to the Oracle of the Bacon, Benjamin David is 4 degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon. Benjamin's book, "Acting Your Dreams" was reviewed by psychiatrist, Dr. Richard Vath, who also counseled Debby Boone. Debby Boone was in 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders with Brandy Norwood—who was in the 39th Annual Grammy Awards with... Kevin Bacon!

Ben spent fifteen years in various forms of reparative—or "ex-gay" therapy before finally coming to terms with the reality of who he is. He writes about that experience in his book, My Egypt.

His writing can best be descried as Religious Satire, in which he takes a humorous look at some of our most sacred cows, including the rapture, God, and the Christian response to the search for gay rights within our communities.

Benjamin David's books include:


Mo Mentor

So, despite all the political and religious antigay fervor, you've decided to be gay. It's the best decision you will ever make, and we here at Mo Mentor couldn't be more proud of you. We're going to help you to understand that you've just decided to express who you truly are, and we'll mentor you through that process.

We'll discuss issues that may arise with family and friends—especially those who disagree with your decision to be who you are. We'll do so in a way that empowers you and honors those who love you (even though they think you're setting yourself up for eternal hellfire—or worse, an Amway presentation).

  • We want to reach out to those of you who find yourselves isolated and ostracized and show you how to find a connection
  • We want to guide you through the gay community and help you understand the culture
  • We want to show you how to be FABULOUS!
  • We want to help you keep yourself safe
  • We want to talk to you honestly about the issues that face the gay community:
    • drugs
    • alcohol
    • violence
    • abuse
    • self-destructive behaviors
  • We want to talk to you about sexual safety.
  • Ultimately, we want you to be the happiest, healthiest, coolest and safest Mo you've ever met.

Mo Mentor wants to have the big conversation about… well… about you.

 

Timonthy Ryker Kole

Sex and sexuality are a major part of who we are. Sex is one of our strongest drives, and takes up huge portions of our focus and concentration. It colors everything we say and do—and even who we say and do it to. Many have vilified this but sex is just as much a part of who we are as our own personality. Sex is not something to be feared, but to be celebrated.

Timothy Ryker Kole spent his formative years, those years that should have been filled with discovery, in a small town in central Wyoming, where coming out for him could have cost him his life… literally. And he did, in fact, have a few close calls.

At a time when others were experimenting with their sexuality, Timothy was hiding… from himself, and everyone else, and there are very few places on earth darker than the gay closet. But now that he's out, and writing about all the ways that sexuality can bring people together, and even bring healing.

Timothy embraces not just his sexuality, but sexuality as a human expression. He likes to write about the ways that sexuality, even in its raw form, can bring us together, not separate us. Sexuality is also a creative expression, and the characters in Timothy's books make this discovery and are able to use that expression to bring their own lives deeper meaning.

Timothy's books include:


Missy Laneous

Missy is, by far, the most difficult to categorize. She likes to have her hands in a little bit of everything. She writes and produces music, she does standup comedy, she blogs, podcasts, and you'll see her name at the top of almost any list.

Missy has worked as an actor, musician and standup comedian with heavy-hitters such as Grant Goodeve from Northern Exposure/Eight is Enough, Barry McGuire from the Broadway Musical "Hair" and the hit song, "Eve of Destruction," and standup comedienne Vanda Mikoloski.

The best way to describe Missy is through the words of her best brined:

  1. First take 1 cup of comedy
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of sarcasm
  3. Add 2 pints of hair gel
  4. Add 1 cup of sifted observations
  5. Add 3 quarts dramatic interpretations
  6. Add a touch of the Drama Queen
  7. Mix them all together with a microphone
  8. Stir vigorously
  9. Bake at 500 degrees for one hour
  10. Then remove from the oven piping hot
  11. Chill on the windowsill and enjoy the show
