About the Authors
Laura Matson Hahn, author of the novel The Heart Code, loved reading and writing from her earliest years and knew someday she would write a novel. But to have something worth writing about, she spent several decades experiencing life through a career in Strategic Communications and world-wide travel, becoming published in multiple non-fiction formats. With a deep belief in the idea of the heart as the root source for one’s truth, Laura’s novel weaves the concepts of modern science’s research of the heart’s intelligence separate from the brain, into a tale of a Bohemian Grandmother who’s dearest wish is for her only granddaughter to hear and heed her own heart’s wisdom. Set in the delicious era of 1930’s Connecticut, New York City and Bohemia, the historical drama has contemporary relevance for young and old. When asked if her novel is autobiographical, Laura replied “I wish.”

Poet Joseph A. Chelius is the author of two poetry chapbooks: Taking Pitches (2006) and Row House Yards (2011), both published by Pudding House Press, as well as a full-length collection, The Art of Acquiescence, published in fall, 2014, by WordTech Communications. Employed as an editorial supervisor with a healthcare communications company in the suburbs of Philadelphia, he and his wife, an artist, have lived in lower Bucks County for almost 22 years and have two grown children. He holds a B.A. in English from LaSalle University and an M.A. in creative writing from Temple University, and his poems have appeared in various journals, including Poetry East, Commonweal, Christianity and Literature, Cider Press Review, Schuylkill Valley Journal, and Spitball. He has been a featured reader at such venues as The Buckingham Peace Fair, the Wordsmith Poetry Series at Bucks County Community College, the Newtown Library, the Manayunk Art Center, and the Philadelphia Free Library Monday Night Poetry Series.
