The ladies at NovelsAlive.TV wanted a one-stop catch-it-all website where readers could go to find interesting book information and special tidbits from authors that would help make the stories come alive to their readers. In this time of increasing media entertainment, it is our hope to compliment the written book with as much interactive and visual elements as the reader could want.

Teresa St. Mary – Teresa, is a wearer of many hats (figuratively) including, mother, wife, graphic designer, event planner, web developer and a self-admitted, avid reader of historical romance novels.
When she is not putting her creative mind to work fulfilling the needs of her design company A Step to the Left’s clients or planning projects as the COO of the fledgling Entertainment Marketing and Promotion corporation Screen Sirens, LLC Teresa is busy working on creating new events like the L.A Creative Arts Festival that help raise money for various charitable organizations, specifically those that directly effect the health and well being of woman and children in need.
Although Teresa is a “small town girl” (again, figuratively) from Missouri, through her various workings with clients and events, in and out of the west coast entertainment industry, she laughingly refers to Los Angeles as her second home. Teresa has produced marketing design work for actors, directors, writers and film studios, among others and played a strong behind-the-scenes role in the creation of entertainment oriented, fundraising events in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas over the past nine years.
Annette Batista – Three-time Emmy Award winning director/videographer, Annette Batista, was born in Havana, Cuba and moved with her family at the tender age of six, to Perth Amboy, New Jersey where she lived with my maternal grandparents until she was 19.
Her love for photography began as a small child at the age of 3 in Havana, Cuba. It was passed down from her maternal grandfather who was an avid photographer himself. Her grandfather would supply her with all the film she could use to encourage her to take all the photos her heart desired. He also gave her solid and loving advice on the best methods to shoot a picture and she eagerly absorbed his knowledge like a sponge.
Her knowledge of lighting and angles comes not only from the lessons of her grandfather, but in the lessons she learned as a technician and director/producer for several television news stations.
Aimee Krenz – Aimee adores the written word. Her parents fostered a love for reading and writing in her from a very young age and her passion for books continues to this day. Aimee has been blogging and writing in numerous places since 2006, both for herself and for publishing companies. In 2009, she created Nathan Fillion FANS, a fansite for actor and Geek God Nathan Fillion. Her affiliation with the site led to a partnership with his foundation, Kids Need To Read, to help raise money and awareness for underfunded schools, libraries, and other literacy foundations struggling to provide age appropriate reading material to children in need. Over the last three years, Fillion FANS has raised over $5000 for the organization, and she hopes to continue to help raise more in the future. In addition to running the fansite, blogging, and posting book reviews, Aimee is also pursuing her dream of becoming a published novelist. She holds an Associate’s degree in Psychology and is working towards her Bachelor’s degree in English.
