Author Sherrilyn Kenyon: Recognized as an Honored Member of Cambridge Who’s Who for Outstanding Achievements in Writing

The Cambridge Who’s Who selection committee carefully selects special honorees based on their accomplishments, academic achievement, leadership and service. Sherrilyn Kenyon, award winning author of the widely-acclaimed series Dark Hunter, Lords of Avalon and The League, has been recognized by Cambridge Who’s Who for exceptional work on her best-selling vampire, science-fiction, fantasy and romance novels.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s journey to literary fame was not easy. After enduring economic and physical hardships and the passing of a family member, her ability to write was severely hindered. With great determination and the steadfast support of her husband and friends, her writing career took off with the signing of a three-book contract with Saint Martin’s Press. Kenyon published the novels from her Dark Hunter vampire series in 2001 launching her to a new level of success. The popularity of the Twilight and True Blood series is not surprising when one considers that Kenyon’s 19-book Dark Hunter vampire series (firmly based on Greek mythology) brought Kenyon international acclaim.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s achievements include six #1 New York Times bestseller slots in just over a single year. Night Pleasures, Kenyon’s first book in the series, spent an impressive six weeks on a USA Today book list and was ranked sixth on Amazon.com nine months before its release date in February of 2002. The book has currently sold more than half a million copies worldwide. Over time, Kenyon’s other fantasy, horror and romance books series, The League and Lords of Avalon have sold countless copies, won a variety of literary awards and have given Kenyon an extensive national and international fan base. She has over 17 million books in print in over 30 countries.

Since she wrote her first novel at the age of seven Kenyon knew this was the path she was meant to follow. Her readers are male and female, from a wide spectrum of ages and come from all walks of life. Hundreds pay her tribute – adorned with tattoos of symbols and images from Kenyon’s work. But despite her success and popularity, Kenyon remains grounded and cherishes her family and friends first and foremost and remains deeply moved, encouraged and inspired by her readers. She is actively involved with the Autism Society of America and the American Cancer Society. Kenyon is a member of the Science Fiction Writers of America, the Horror Writers Association and Romance Writers of America. She received her Ph.D. in history from the University of Georgia.

Cambridge Who’s Who Member, Nancy Bauser, Publishes a Guide to Help Survivors of Catastrophe

Cambridge Who’s Who VIP member, Nancy Bauser, is a social worker and disability life coach with the NSB Group in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. She has published a book entitled Acceptance Groups for Survivors: A Guide for Facilitators. The book is intended for use by professionals who work with survivors of traumatic brain injuries or other conditions resulting in disabilities.

In 1971, Ms. Bauser survived a head-on collision, which resulted in a severe brain stem injury. After the accident, she had to relearn how to walk, talk, think and function independently. Ms. Bauser said in an article published in the June 2008 issue of Psychology Today that she believed the secrets to her success were not seeing failure as an option, maintaining determination while accepting temporary setbacks to position herself for future success and refusing to capitulate to helplessness. This allowed her to be ambitious and accomplish the goals she had set for herself. Written in a straightforward manner, Ms. Bauser reaches out to other survivors through Acceptance Groups for Survivors to help them continue with their lives.

With its basis in personal experience, the book also presents a systematic method on how to help victims of catastrophe. Ms. Bauser has developed an approach that facilitators, social workers, psychologists and rehabilitation personnel can use to aid those who have suffered similar physical traumas. She has designed a structured group program, helping survivors to accept their deficits, so they can begin recovery.

Frank Farelly, a former clinical professor, author and internationally known psychotherapist says that Acceptance Groups for Survivors is a well-organized, compassionate and realistic guide. Others have also described it as a “user-friendly guide that asks all the right questions” and is “most interesting.” Her book relays the message that recovery is making progress, giving her peace and the ability to be content with her life and limitations.

After her severe and life-threatening brain injury in 1971, Ms. Bauser made more than a full recovery. She went on to earn her bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in 1973 and master of social work from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1976. Ms. Bauser also became a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers in 1984.

The newsletter also features a health and safety section to assist readers in selecting safe toys during the holidays. Ms. Theriot warns her readers to pay attention to how a toy is constructed, its appropriateness for the child in question, choking hazards and toxic chemicals used to manufacture the toy.

The household tips section outlines the financial and environmental benefits of choosing reusable bags over paper or plastic. According to Ms. Theriot, using reusable bags is a great way to become a more “eco-friendly shopper” and help the environment by saving trees, oil and the Earth.

At the close of the newsletter, Ms. Theriot lists six things that can drain your money such as eating out and drinking bottled water and shares her recipe for an easy-to-make breakfast casserole.
