Scott Biddulph:

Scott Biddulph is a published writer, author, and poet from North Georgia. He began writing as a youngster and followed his lifelong dream of reaching people through the written word when he returned to The University of North Georgia in 2013 to finish earning his BA/English with a concentration on publication and creative writing. His publications include the following: an eBook, Apples of Gold: A collection of inspirational short stories and poems (Smashwords, 2010) and a paperback, Voices from the Heart, (Createspace, 2012). His poetry is published in Papers and Publications Undergraduate Research Journal. Vol 3 (2014) and the award-winning Chestatee Review (Spring, 2015), among other places (Check his LinkedIn profile for a full list of his publications). He is currently working on publishing poetry, creative non-fiction, academic essays, and his memoir.

Scott has also worked as an intern editor for the University of North Georgia Press. As a freelance editor, he has done the layout and design of several books and magazines. He is currently working with several authors on various publication projects in which he is either ghostwriting, editing manuscripts, or doing the layout and design.

Scott continues working on his memoir Twisted Ride. He also maintains a Christian blog: A Disciple’s Journey. Finally, and most importantly, he is a father, grandfather, husband, and dedicated Harley Davidson rider (with a huge beard). He and his family enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains where they live—especially their screened in back porch where they love to bird watch.

I love realism. I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul. I love to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told.

John C. Gyorki

John is currently an Electrical Skilled Tradesman for the University of Michigan. He has over 32 years experience in his field. He resides in Southern Michigan with his wife, Maryann. He spent four years in the Marine Corp as a 7011 (Aircraft Launch & Recovery Tech). After his tour, he completed a four-year Inside Wireman Electrical Apprenticeship with I.B.E.W. (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers).

At a very young age, John developed a love for reading and hoarding books and has continued to do so. It wasn’t uncommon to see him writing notes about something. John believes inspiration comes from an intentional reading of the word and following the Lord. He feels it encourages better living and thinking.

When John is not working, writing, and reading, he is trying his best at being a husband, father, grandfather, brother, son, friend, and uncle. On occasion, you’ll see him making sausage and jerky or fermenting cabbage and pickles. He is always put in charge of making Hungarian Goulash over an open pit fire. No one else is allowed!

“My goal is to foster traditional family community and common sense thinking.”

“I enjoy reading books about personal life experiences. When people are at their lowest, broken point, and then making a victorious comeback.”

  1. Hello all,
    I love the new look! Did not think I’d been away that long – it took me completely by surprise. I dropped by to thank you Marilyn for following my blog (A Purpose-driven achiever).
    Keep up the excellent work!

  2. What a small world. Your neighborhood sounds like one large book club. I’ll let you decide a literary topic and submit. All of us can use advice on better writing, a poem, encouragement, or what is working to get blog traffic. Be sure to include your bio and links, that way we all benefit, and that’s our mission.

  3. You have a beautiful blog. I came here through the Intentional Blog Course FB group after reading one of Marilyn’s posts. What a great mission you have. I am a one woman show, not blogging for profit at this point, but working on my site Just Write as well as my personal blog. One thing I noticed is how few likes review posts usually get, so I started a link challenge or party to offer a place for bloggers to link reviews they have already written. I post a review each week about a certain genre, and encourage others to link and share what others link. This is my post for this week. http://wp.me/p7tP3I-i9 It hasn’t gone over as well as I thought it might, but I still enjoy doing it.

    • Hi, Marsha, I thought I recognized your name from another comment. I wanted to thank you for commenting here, as well. I’m going to check out your post later tonight – promise.

      A one woman, or man show can get discouraging sometimes. You might consider a guest post with us. We actively promote and support our guest contributors. I hope you think about it.
