ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Jarl Alexandre Alé de Basseville of Normandy, descendant of the 1st King Harald of Norway, was born in Bordeaux on July 8th, 1970, the land of Aliénor of Aquitaine. He is one of the last direct descendants of the Viking and Norman Kings’ lineage.

Ale de Basseville portraitkl 1Through his great grandfather who created the first trading company in Luxemburg in 1927, to his grandfather who managed the Caltex oil industry, Alexandre Alé de Basseville sees the important role of energy as the cornerstone for an economically strong and sustainable Europe. Born into the oil business, he is passionate about it and has built strong relationships with royal families and corporate oil leaders in the Middle East.

Alexandre Alé de Basseville grew up among artists, philosophers, politicians, men and women of great influence and developed a taste for entrepreneurship. Eager for new experiences and knowledge, he carried out businesses in his own way.

His passion for Arts flourished at the age of 15, when he joined the world of contemporary art and honed his skills in photography, painting, filmography and sculpture under the advice of Andy Warhol. After studying at the La Scuola di Arte in Milan, he came to know Lucchi Renato Chiesa, known as “the last surrealist.” This relationship led to great opportunities, such as being represented by an international agent, recognition from the Metropolitan Museum of New York, and work with legendary fashion and design magazines. Later, he will serve as creative director for several major French and international brands.

While enjoying a successful career in the arts, he has turned to support the banking business narrowly connected to the oil business, holding a legal banking license and working in the financial sectors with interests in foreign currencies, online banking platforms, and private banking.
Alexandre Alé de Basseville has successfully brought the concept of the first entertainment fund backed by the support of AAA banking. His passion for expanding Internet commerce is associated with the first streaming company in America.

NGOs and associations play an important part in his life. At the age of 19, he joined in the fight against AIDS by making art that represented the violence of AIDS. His mobilization continues today around another equally important cause: providing work and education to girls and women in emerging countries. Living with a rare genetic disease, Alexandre Alé de Basseville is disabled and understands the need to fight for the construction of special infrastructures to improve the life and integration of disabled people.

From this inspired past and his passion for a better future, Alexandre Alé de Basseville decided to become politically involved in Europe to serve culture and tradition for which he considers himself as a charismatic and legitimate representative

Lisa Loucks Christenson, author of the book « Winter Bugs: 10 Year Anniversary Edition »

41n0lm7gccl-_ux250_About Lisa Loucks Christenson: I’ve enjoyed many career changes from working for the Minnesota Conservation Corps, various newspapers, radio, working as a traveling photographer, working in communications, dispatching, fulfillment and more. After years of selling my stories, articles, stock photos, books, both fiction and non-fiction, writing articles, shooting pictures, filming what I observe in the wild. I thank god every day for the blessing He has given me, and allowing me the opportunity to live my dreams: photographing His world, writing, illustrating, selling my art, cards, paintings, books, e-books, photos, and sharing my work through exhibits and speaking engagements.

____________________________________

How many books have you written? If more than one, are any a series… or trilogy?

I’m working on many books right now. Most have been in progress for years because I only create one illustration per year, or write one story for the series.

Wolves of Whitewater Falls, Eagles of Whitewater, Bow Wow Detectives®, Meow Meow Detectives™, Robinwood Ridge, and my Christian Dystopian releasing in a few weeks, First Christmas in Eden, #1, 8H: Eight Horsemen of Equinox Estuary, the book trailers are on my site.

Tell us a little about your book.

winterbugsWinter Bugs is a documentary filmed on the grounds of a former ghost town, the town of Beaver, Minnesota. The land was repurchased by the State and returned to its natural appearance. I was working on my Walk the Burn documentary and was looking for a subject to include for that day. I couldn’t find anything. It was very cold, -37 below, and it was snowing, and I had to keep moving, looking. I finally came to rest on a tree, and asked God to help me, I refused to go home without finding something. When I leaned off the tree there were several red box elder bugs staring up at me. They were my answer for the day and the inspiration for writing a book on insect life in winter. If these little nymphs could be out in this kind of weather I wondered what else was out there and decided to take the entire winter season to document what I could find. For the record: I found over 300+ species in various stages of their life.

Do you have plans for a new book?

I’m working on several now. I have spent 12 years in the valley documenting several species, eagles, bear, cougar, white-tail deer, Giant Canada Geese, a Muscovy Duck in the wild, more. I plan on putting these out over the next several years.

Is there an Author that you would really like to meet?

I meet authors every week on my radio show for Book Divas, and I love meeting them all. I really do get to meet some of the worlds greatest talent, I’m forever grateful for the experiences. I don’t care if people are new or established, we all have stories to share.

Do you plot or write by the seat of your pants?

I am usually sitting down with zero thought to what I’m about to write. I can write up 2K words a half hour to 45 minutes, sometimes 3K if the chapter is flowing. The most I ever wrote was 36K words in one day, literally 24 hours, with only a couple short breaks. I won’t attempt that again.

Winter Bugs: Ten Year Anniversary Edition is a documentary filmed in the Whitewater Management Area on the land where the former town of Beaver, Minnesota once stood. A real Minnesota ghost town now shrouded by insects and wildlife who live and die each year, but as this books shows, death doesn’t always come during winter.

Winter Bugs: Ten Year Anniversary Edition features close-up images of insects, spiders, and caterpillars, most of the subjects photographed were smaller than a grain of sand.
