"Deborah is a psychotherapist and a screenwriter. My favorite combination." - Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ernest Thompson
Deborah has always been fascinated by the transformational power of story. As a young girl, words charmed her in their ability to weave ideas into shape and color. Unifying her early excursions into both prose and psychological research, she wrote a thought-provoking parable on the art and science of self-love called Looking Glass Sky (Jalmar Press, 1995), which arose from her years in private practice as a psychotherapist. Deborah’s love of story next led her deep into the fabric of screenwriting, from which she spun four screenplays based on the mythic hero’s journey format. Threaded throughout the lives of each of the leading ladies in these inspirational stories, you’ll find hers. They include an ageless astronaut, a 40’s jazz singer, a Clipper ship Captain's wife, and a mother with a deep dedication to both her daughter and the earth. Deborah’s recent heroines, Ms. Bee Haven and Mzzz Pink, among others, originate from her cartoon world Splash City, a playful approach to personal transformation (for adults and young adults) using 'Cartoon Mentors,' therapeutically woven fables, and a splash of wonder. Deb lives near the seacoast of New Hampshire.
Craig’s passion in life is to uncover the art and science of the dream. This passion has taken him on many exciting journeys, starting with a bicycle ride across America at the age of 20, operating a successful Tropical Design business in New York City, participating in the Albert Schweitzer foundation, working on Tony Robbins' events staff for 8 years, building “Airships” in the 80’s, and to producing, directing and hosting the television series “Power of a Dream.” Craig is a musician (bass guitar), a designer ("it's all about form and function!"), and meditates best while roller skating. He regularly chats with plants, animals and bugs. Some of the extraordinary stops on his dream journey include the time Tony Robbins stopped the firewalk to add more shovels of hot coals just as he was about to take his first firewalk, his exclusive interview with the man who saved the Hubble telescope; and the time he first set eyes upon Mzzz Pink on a hot July day at York Beach, Maine. Craig lives near the seacoast of New Hampshire.
