The world is huge and has a diversity of people. At this point, there are 7.8 billion people in the world, and each person has a unique quality that distinguishes them from other people. This quality makes them shine brighter and is the reason why they get recognized in the world.
While some people are exceptionally good at teaching, others are known for being brilliant leaders, some people are good with technology, some are recognized for their ability to listen to other people, while a part of this population is known for creating a whole new world by joining words together.
Like everything else, putting words together to narrate a story is an innate trait. And because of that, the world is blessed to have so many esteemed authors who give their readers the possibility of venturing outside the real world and into a fictional realm.
Today, an author who stands distinguished in the urban fantasy genre is Lynn A. Dalton. Dalton is not just any writer; she is a devoted and passionate writer who is known for her exceptional storytelling skills, which are reflected through her uniquely crafted books!
A PEEK IN THE PAST
Lynn A. Dalton was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts in the United States. Growing up, the author was fond of reading and would spend prolonged hours reading books, especially by Dean Koontz, Stephen King, and Iris Johansen. Her favorite books were Iris Johansen’s series about Eve, the forensic sculptor. Cherishing every moment, she spent reading, Lynn was often found lost in her own fantasy world.
With a major portion of time being given to reading, Lynn’s imagination grew vividly, and her crafting skills were strengthened, encouraging her to start writing stories of her own and that she did! By age ten, the author had already begun writing stories, surrounding herself with friends with the same interests. Throughout school, the author spent hours with her friends enthusiastically giving ideas and creating stories together. Even when they were not together, the friend circle used to exchange stories through the mail!
Lynn’s love for writing was not just limited to the few people she knew, she loved sharing what she created with others as well. The girl loved putting a smile on people’s faces and watched as people’s faces lit up after listening to her stories. The passion started blooming, especially during her time at the Girl Scouts’ campfires, where nights were spent making smores and sharing stories. It wasn’t a surprise that a keen head would turn to Lynn since her young mind always had a magical story to share, and that too, was on the spot!
Bidding farewell to high school, Lynn was determined that instead of putting her skills aside, she would polish and perfect her writing. Even though she didn’t start a career in writing, she induced her love for storytelling in her professional life.
The author began working at the Winchester Memorial Hospital, where she would have to interact with patients regularly. To make them feel better, the author would offer them a listening ear and then narrate her own fictional stories as well, creating a special bond with every patient she knew.
She got her MBA in Acquisition and Contract Management from the American Graduate University in Covina, California, and completed her Bachelor of University Studies from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Later, the author became the Public Affairs Officer at the rank of Captain in the Civil Air Patrol. She worked for the federal government for a period of 34 years where the use of her writing skills were required, and Lynn was happy to do so. Making up stories was something that she was always good at, and she created comical poems covering the working career of retiring Air Force personnel.
A LOOK AT THE PRESENT
A mother of two sons, David Angelo and Michael Thomas, the author found the same love of fiction in her children. Dragons, sorcerers, witches, and magic was what the children enjoyed reading, and the author enjoyed telling them stories about urban fantasies. The author was encouraged to write and pursue it as a career by her children.
Sadly, the author lost her youngest son, David, in the hands of fate when he was just 24. Shattered by the tragic incident, the author wanted to keep her son’s wishes alive, and she was ready to step into the writing industry.
On May 23, 2017, the author got her first book in the Dragons, Kings, and the Blazing Slicklizzard Heart Trees Series entitled Scindinvian Battles and the Black Magic Draco Ice Dragons published. Upon the writing of the first book of the Dragons, Kings, and the Blazing Slicklizzard Heart Trees quadrilogy, the author received an overwhelming response.

Impacting Lives Will Always Come First – Avi Grondin
The purpose of human existence is to help other people reach their fullest potential in life. We are created unique, with varying degrees of light and awesomeness, to help others become better versions of themselves while we become ours. Avi Grondin, CEO of Variance Marketing, believes that human existence has grown over the centuries because humans became so good that they gave others the license to become better.
Avi Grondin has had speaking opportunities at the TedX stage in Canada and has been featured in some of the country’s top business magazines, continually speaks of impact as the core of every social purpose. Avi reiterates that there is a need for every person to recalibrate their minds to become more impactful and more human-centric in their dealings. For Avi, the moment we shift our work’s focus from being rich and accumulating wealth to impacting lives and changing the narratives of those around us, we become better humans and make way more money in the process. And the world is better for it.
In his TedX speech, Avi said that he has learned from his mother and his clients that creating positive impacts has ripple effects. The effects spread to different people at different times. There are too many people whose sole aim of doing business is to make money. While this is good, Avi points out; it isn’t sustainable. It doesn’t meet the core requirement of our purpose.
Avi will never agree that making profits comes before making an impact. He agrees that businesses should make money. What he disagrees on, he said during one of his speeches, is for the money-making process to trump the impact-delivering.
“Whenever I speak to people, young or old, I feel good, somewhat fulfilled. You know why?” Avi asks his audience. “It is because I know that I am impacting lives, helping people see the light in themselves, helping them get better,” he says.
Avi is a serial entrepreneur with years of experience growing businesses. His marketing agency, Variance Marketing, has been at the forefront of helping many small and big companies make the most of their marketing. Avi says he offers value and makes an impact through his company when he creates and delivers marketing strategies to his clients.
‘The work that I do as a marketer is impactful. While many may see it as making sales, it goes beyond that. We not only improve sales; we also help the customers with the valuable content necessary to nurture their prospects. It is a win-win situation for all parties involved,” Avi says.
Avi is also delving into the retail cannabis space and sees his new dispensary chain, ModernDay Cannabis, as another way he can impact people’s lives.
“For every tree we buy, we plant trees,” Avi said about his new cannabis business. The savvy businessman, 24, has made it his life’s work always to give back, and make an impact with whatever he does. It is still about making the world better.”
