About the Authors
Tasher was divorced on her 26th wedding anniversary, and she embarked on a new life. Her marriage was broken all to pieces, she was not going to let the divorce break her. Tasher quickly discovered that single life was very different from all those years ago. One case in point is dating; there was not an internet back then, and cell phones didn’t exist. Like many, she initially was scared but being a smart businessperson she set up a plan of how to date yet continue to keep her and family safe.
Tasher has dyslexia yet always enjoyed writing and decided to share with others the things she learned while rebuilding her life. The launch of Divorced and Scared No More.com was November 2012 and quickly received a worldwide following. As she started sharing her experiences, others in-turn shared some of their stories. The intent of the site is for people to share without fear of reprisals. The logo for the websites inspiration was a set of broken pilot wings (her ex-husband is a pilot).
Tasher is not a professional therapist, rather she is sharing because she has “been there and done that” and understands how it FEELS. No two people will have identical situations, her hope is that the shared experiences will guide others through this time in their life with the least amount of trepidation.
Tasher’s quest to help others forgive the past and rejoice in their new life did not stop with the website or DASNM book series. She has contributed to DivorceSupportCenter.com, HopeAfterDivorce.org, The Good Men Project, Single Sassy Mom (dot) com. She has had guest appearances on John Brislin Show, David Essel Alive! and Developing a New YOU. Guest Co-Host on Single Again Now What and The Divorce View. The Ed Tyll show did an entire show highlighting Tasher and DASNM.com. She is also involved with the Tough Angels Organizations, The Wedding Rings Project and Wings of Hope. Plus the Acts of Random Kindness and ARK Harbor.
Tasher is single and a mother of three adult children and a proud Grammy to three grandchildren. She lives in Houston, Texas with her daughter, two grandchildren, two dogs, three cats, and the occasional rescue animal.

Tony Haynes is a lyricist/songwriter/author/philosopher and a practitioner of Acrostic Poetry. In less than a minute Tony can literally pull words out of thin air. Give him the title of what you’d like to call your poem, or song and he will create it for you on the spot. The catch is, he will write your name in the air, and show you how the beginning of each line in the work he’s creating spells the letters of your name downward. It’s an eloquent combination of spontaneous penmanship & showmanship. He calls it "Creativity in an Instant."
Before Tony realized he had this rare poetic talent, he was and still is a prolific lyricist, songwriter, music publisher and record producer. In this capacity, Tony has accomplished a great deal. "Send A Little Love," his first song, was recorded by the Spinners in 1981. Since then, Tony’s songs have been recorded on over 200 albums, selling in excess of 60 million copies worldwide. These songs have earned him 60 gold and multi-platinum awards, as well as several ASCAP Awards. He has collaborated with the most successful writers and producers in the world. Rather than leave anyone out, feel free see Tony’s Wikipedia page for more detail on this aspect of his creative life.
In 1993, Tony turned his considerable talents to the world of children’s entertainment. He began producing audio products, writing books and creating animated characters. Tony has authored 34 children's books based on the Baby Looney Tunes characters. Tony is also the author of several books adults will enjoy such as Reincarnation of Douglas Kavanaugh.
Tony has added 'spoken word artist' to the hats he seems to juggle seamlessly. A collaboration with French composer, Stephane d'Esposito; The Pianist and The Poet is elegant and romantic production.
Last but certainly not least, Tony is also executive producing and creating original programming for television. He has several shows in development based on his novels and scripts.
