More about “The Guy, the Girl, the Artist and His Ex” from Goodreads:

A rock chick.

An artist with attitude.

A girl with a past.

A party animal.

Four lives collide when one of the world’s most famous paintings is stolen. It’s a mystery that has the nation talking, but while Picasso’s Weeping Woman might be absent from the walls of the National Gallery, in other parts of Melbourne the controversial painting’s presence is being felt by Guy, Rafi, Luke and Penny for four very different reasons.

Life, love, art and one giant party intersect in this offbeat comedy about good intentions, unexpected consequences and the irresistible force of true love.

Gabrielle Williams BookAlthough Ms. Williams didn’t complete her education at school, her career is proof that an academic path isn’t the only route to success. She has an impatience about her, which has helped to spark an innovative flame and inspired her to write some of her most pioneering works. She is more interested in getting out there and pursuing her dreams than learning about someone else pursuing theirs. Her personality type is incredibly individualistic, and she doesn’t like doing things the way everyone else does them– she is a firm advocate of taking the road less traveled. Her latest book, ‘The Guy The Girl The Artist & His Ex’, was inspired by the real life theft of one of Picasso’s most famous paintings – The Weeping Woman. In order to achieve an authentic tone throughout the novel, Ms. Williams spent a great deal of time researching the 1980s, art fraud, art forgers and Picasso. She is grateful to have a fantastically supportive husband, as well as excellent friends. When Ms. Williams is writing a book, she goes the extra mile to ensure that the information she includes in the book is accurate for the setting. Her last two books were set in the 1980s, and she did a lot of research to understand current events and incorporate them into the overall tone of the novels. After completing her research, she sits down to write, type her ideas and work on the finished publication.

Ms. Williams has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards in Australia, and is interested in increasing her connections. She is also interested in traveling for her work and speaking publicly about how to use humour to hook teenagers in to reading, a subject she is quite passionate about. Her novel, “Beatle Meets Destiny,” was shortlisted for two literary awards in 2010. Her second book was shortlisted for the Gold Inky Award. “Beatle Meets Destiny” was voted as one of the top 50 reads of 2010.

Sonia Crystella Publishes “Unlocking the Secrets to Longevity” in Nine Languages

Sonia CrystellaSonia Crystella, a renowned designer, recently published a book titled “Unlocking the Secrets to Longevity,” which was freshly pressed in nine languages. The overall theme of the book is longevity and anti-aging, through science, diet, and metaphysical issues.

In her book, Ms. Crystella explains why she was inspired to write it: “I had an audition at 55 years old for a TV commercial, for a 50- to 60-year-old part, and saw them [producers] laugh at me. [Someone] suggested I write about why I looked so young. It started me thinking about my journey. I was born sick and spent a large part of my childhood and early adulthood in bed. My immune system didn’t function well, although at the time we were not aware this was my problem, after all it was the 1950s. The doctors continued to fill me with drugs and antibiotics, my body’s defense system struggled to cope and eventually it took its toll on my physical and mental health. At 21 years old, after giving birth to my son, I had no option to change my diet and find away to reverse the damage done by drugs and multiple illnesses. I came to learn how to repair my body by alternative ways, the very ways that science is now telling us slows the aging process. I knew I had found a way to heal the cells and slow the ravages of aging. I needed to share my story so others could be inspired to heal themselves and stall the aging process with the knowledge I had come to learn over a 36-year period.”

Sonia Crystella - "Unlocking the Secrets to Longevity"Ms. Crystella summarizes the book by explaining, “In the next 15-plus years one in two people are likely to have cancer. Diet and environmental toxins are aging us and making us sick. Although many do not care about a very long life, they do care about their quality of life. Once we hit 50, the way we have lived our life will start to show if it hasn’t already. Remaining healthy as we go into our twilight years is paramount if we want to avoid cancers and dementia, along with many of the terrible cognitive illnesses most are facing.”

Looking back, Ms. Crystella attributes her success to her determination to heal herself, as well as her good eye for fashion. She became involved in her profession when she started sewing at the age of 7 and learned the manufacturing end of the business from a family friend in the industry. She was sick at a very young age and has been through a lot of illnesses that made her look deeper into natural healing, as the medicines that were given to her were not working. This is a way of life for her now, and she wants to share that with others. The most gratifying aspect of her career has been solving her own health issues and slowing the aging process as a result of utilizing natural health and wellness techniques. This, by far, has been her greatest achievement, as teaching others will bring even greater rewards.

Ms. Crystella was recently inducted into Worldwide Branding and also maintains affiliation with the Australian EpiGenetic Alliance. In years to come, Ms. Crystella plans to do motivational speaking and help others. She will be working on another book regarding the chemicals around us, as well as meditation processes.
