NS also edits and designs (ebook and book covers plus interior layouts) of the character-driven stories published through PIE: Perception Is Everything ( Neale is a former member of the Writer's Guild of America - West (WGA-w)'s Video Game Caucus.

            “Characters should have depth and reality, and be unique in their own way.” And how’s this for “range”? With life experience as a temp or perm employee in various fields besides writing; including: business banking and wealth management, accounting, engineering, live theatre, cinema, music (vocal, instruments, and radio), erotic photo modeling, historical and cultural research, and even microgravity research at NASA, Neale builds characters who have unique depth, freshness, and reader memorability.

            Neale was also a Founding Advisory Board Member for "Creative Screenwriting Journal", studied Graduate level Film & Video writing and analysis at American University, DC, and has a Performing Fine Arts Bachelor Degree from Lake Erie College, OH. And continues studies in game design, storytelling, research and confirmation, people observation, and yoga.

            Neale Sourna is a graduate of John F. Kennedy H.S. in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, a former (and again) student of Cuyahoga Community College (Digital Film & Editing, Game Design Building), an undergrad-intern semester at Mount Vernon College with the National Endowment for the Arts Opera-Musical Theatre Financial Distribution Program, and an academic term alone abroad in Vienna, Austria just living, making friends, and learning.

            A fun fact. Neale shares a birthday with these sensual and sensational authors the Marquis deSade of France and Thomas Hardy of England, which says a thing or two about Neale's take on dramatic writing.

        "I don't write 'romance' stories, but character love stories, like the short story fiction published at and at, with romance of the heart and of adventure, in its many, many human varieties, as seen through the eyes and hearts and bodies of realistic characters; whether about military special forces regiments, mail order brides in the outback, class-crossed samurai lovers, wealthy Victorian 'minorities,' or luscious vampires of another color." All of which are still in the works, but coming your way!

        Oddly, Neale has also has had a few stories of the North Coast Academies' Series BANNED by Amazon Kindle, after they had sold them previously at Amazon for years!

        Neale was also banned by her writing group--without redress or explanation--evidently simply because of the TITLE of her first nonfiction about learning and doing successful and caring cunnilingus; "Neale Sourna's CuntSinger." (aka SexSinger for those afraid of the title).
