Melissa Sage Fadim
Melissa Sage Fadim is the mother of four, a grandmother and the creative and financial Godmother to countless artistic and educational endeavours.

WRITER / DIRECTOR
Terry Spencer Hesser
Terry Spencer Hesser is a published novelist, biographer, produced playwright, award-winning screenwriter and recipient of three Emmy awards.
She has been telling stories in print, on TV, and on the stage for three decades and has worked with people as diverse as Audrey Hepburn and Oprah Winfrey. She has wielded garlic for A&E whilst searching for vampires in Transylvania and braved the equally potent aroma of Limburger to tell Wisconsin’s cheesy history for the Food Network.
Kira Cook lives, writes, and acts in Los Angeles. She is a native Chicagoan who enjoys old people, old places, and old things. After finishing a Master’s degree in Modern Literature in England, where Kira read a lot of Joyce and Stein and wrote for various websites, she left the grey of London for the yellow of Los Angeles to re-pursue acting and writing.
