About the Author
Born to a Christian family in Muslim Kuwait, Emile had his father's hard working habits to copy and his mother's intellectual care to thrive. After moving to Lebanon amidst a time of war and uncertainty, Emile nurtured his adolescent hunger with belief and religion. At the age of 18 his concrete thinking challenged him with a choice. Was he to go to medical school... or to a hermitage?
As a medical doctor, a part of him had to still justify that decision. Emile researched the Judeo-Islamic-Christian beliefs and traditions, then expanded to other religious philosophies before he was comfortable to call himself agnostic.
After exploring Masonry as a Master Mason and researching the Phoenician history, Emile presents in the 'Verses of Madison' an exciting mystery that delves into many forbidden vaults of secrecy.
About Kate Skye:
Kate grew up in a quiet area of eastern Ontario where the nearest town barely cracked 3,000. She had a lot of time to write stories, which she immensely enjoyed.
Raised Catholic, she began to question her faith in her early teens, and discovered a plethora of religions she hadn't learned about in school. Thus began her search for the truth. At the time of her grandfather's passing, young Kate and her family received condolences from a group of Masons. After witnessing their ceremony at the funeral and later accidentally coming across her late grandfather's little black Masonic book filled with cryptic verses and words blanked out from start to finish, she added Masonry to her search interests.
Kate has done some extensive travelling and has visited her grandfather's homeland, Lebanon. She continues to visit churches, mosques, temples, museums, and places that might help in her understanding of religions, associated symbolism and their genesis.
