Angela is a 40 something fully paid up bookworm and a regular contributor to The Black Lion Journal. She lives and works in London. By day you will find her working in a busy hospital as a Macmillan Palliative Care Nurse Specialist. Her aim is to do those things which make her heart sing and spend time with those who make her smile. A love of books, reading, and writing has always been a big part of her life. ‘Changing pages’ began as a natural extension of that in 2014, and is a continuation of many years of dedicated scribbling and journal keeping. When she is not reading books, she can often be found writing about them or thinking about what she might read next. // More About Angela Vincent

Rachel grew up on Star Trek, X-Files and the Hobbit. She fell in love with Star Wars, then Stargate followed by Firefly and Doctor Who. Then Skyrim came and no fantasy stone was left unturned. Her love of all things comics started sometime during all of this on family vacations to Universal and with a single book. From then on it has been a healthy downward spiral into geekblivion. Now she cosplays, play Dungeons and Dragons, and writes about comics. // More About Rachel McGill

Inspirational & Influential Voices (Project-Only Photography)
Thaddeus Miles is a public Safety Director, Nonprofit Leader, Lover of Life, Black Man, Father, Photographer Looking through the lens of Life and HoodFit. His photography is an intimate gesture of composition: an embrace between what the eyes can see and the visual journey of imagination. Throughout his professional career, he has come face to face with the injustices and deprivation that fuel violent crime with tragedy, hopelessness and despair. He believes that detachment and denial are not antidotes. He has a commitment to support citizens of his community to develop their voices and to create their own urban legacy: to tell their own truths – about faith, resilience and community. A critical component of his work is to provide the technology, cameras, instructors and training necessary to endow residents with a multi-media capacity to tell their own stories. He also embarks on a personal journey through his photography to reveal a shared terrain of natural beauty. Photography allows him a vision beyond hopelessness and chaos. // More About Thaddeus Miles
