ARTIST BIO"Born in a City, raised on a Farm, now isn't that a delightful song?!" ~ Daniel Spears age 4 years old.Yes... Yes, Dan was always creative. His outlet was always art.. "Mom! Why doesn't he get in trouble for coloring on the wall!?!" I would whine. Our mother would explain that it was his outlet. Dan's talent really sprang forth in Jr. High with the start of Space Seekers, registered, inc. The drawings came pouring forth to the determent of his homework! Drawings after drawings... and yet more drawings, which at first displayed the influences of Spielberg and Lucas; then began reflecting his own imagination and teenage angst. Whereas with others of his peers, it was just a phase; Daniel kept at it- producing drawing after drawing. He worked security in early adulthood- which was a great job to draw, draw, draw and game! Then his art propelled him into college to become a web designer. Resulting in the creation of many successful websites, which led to many of Dan's clients expressing in amazement that Dan was able to transform their ideas into logos web pages, and create exactly what they'd imagined and wanted. In the recent years, many a dot com businesses have gone bust- but Dan has survived on pure talent. We- his friends and family- are so happy to see his work compiled into this series of books. Besides being an artist the one thing you can always hear in the company of Dan is: "Dan, you should be a stand-up comedian, man!" So we are happy to have his humor as well as his Science Fiction and Abstracts featured in these books............ Angela Sullivan, Dan's sister and life long friend
Kit DeCanti has been writing mysteries ever since the 1950s, when she and her siblings spent hot California summers inventing mysteries to solve. DeCanti's first mystery novel was published in 2009, and practically before it was in print she had two sequels swimming in her head. Although her suspenseful mysteries could stand on their own- Kit typically wraps an intriguing romance around them. As if a mystery and romance weren't enough- Kit DeCanti also takes you on a vivid word tour of the fascinating Lake County, California where she and her husband has lived since 1996. Besides Secret On Cobb Mountain and Return To Cobb Mountain, other books DeCanti has out are The Rock House which is a children's book based on the house Kit's father was born it and was illustrated by Dan Spears; Secrets Of A Lazy Cook- or How I Survived Marriage to An Italian When I Hate The Kitchen, a cook book filled with great recipes and funny family stories. DeCanti also wrote the commentary for SpearsSpheres & SpaceSeekers- Absolutely Abstract, an art book by Dan Spears. Out soon is DeCanti's Crossroads Inn Time trilogy, also set in Lake County. Kit likes to refer to herself as a 'late bloomer', because although she has written since she was eight years old, she was almost fifty before becoming prolific. Kit credits Lake County California for her recent creativity, "I started painting and writing almost before I unpacked after moving to Lake County. Just one drive around Clear Lake tells you why the county is full of artists, authors, musicians and poets.- I can't imagine not being creative surrounded by such beauty."
