About the Author:

William Dean is an actor and playwright whose love of theater and acting were cultivated by exposure to the works of Shakespeare in high school. He earned a Bachelors of Arts from The College of William and Mary in Theatre and Speech in 1987. He has performed for television, film and stage, working behind the scenes as a Producer, Director, and Art Director. His spiritual studies began with an interest in the Edgar Cayce material, and he has been a student of Astrology for over 25 years.In 1995 Don Waldy, a business executive with over 20 years of corporate and Fortune 500 experience, received a spiritual reawakening during his first hours as a hospice volunteer. In his desire to understand the dynamics of the spiritual world, he read, studied, and participated in the esoteric areas that he felt pierced the veil of true knowledge. That knowledge showed the relationship between the physical and spiritual sciences, why each has its own applicable laws, and how both are inter-related, integrated, and necessary. Don continues his endeavors in corporate consulting, adult and children hospice, advocacy for children with Attention Deficit Disorder, and prayer-spiritual healing.
