About Anthony Maybury

Anthony Maybury was born in Hamilton, Ohio in 1923. In 1943, he married the love of his life, Ruth, and they raised four children together. (Their son, Richard J. Maybury, is the author of the Uncle Eric books.) In 1959, the Mayburys moved to California.

In his career, Mr. Maybury progressed from shoe-shine boy to Western regional sales manager for a major coffee company. His diverse experiences in the business world led him to amass a wealth of "common sense" to share with others. Mr. Maybury was so successful that he was able to take early retirement at the age of fifty-five.

The book Common Sense Business for Kids is a collaboration between Anthony Maybury and Kathryn Daniels, written to benefit and encourage young people interested in entering the business world.

About Kathryn Daniels

Kathryn Daniels was born in Sacramento, California. After earning degrees in Cecchetti ballet from the International Society of Teachers of Dancing, Ms. Daniels attended college and graduated top of her class with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration/Marketing. She continued on to earn a Masters degree in Liberal Arts. Ms. Daniels is the author and editor of several Bluestocking Guides for the Uncle Eric books, co-editor of Economics: A Free Market Reader, and author of Bluestocking Press' most recent title Common Sense Business for Kids.

About Ann Marie Williams

After being homeschooled through high school, Ann graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in media communication from California State University, Sacramento.  She has spent over 10 years in the publishing industry, building a strong background in writing, editing, marketing, sales, distribution and customer service.

As an aspiring screenwriter, she spent the past several years entering screenplay competitions. Her scripts have placed in several screenwriting competitions including the semifinals of the Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition and ScreenCraft’s Sci-Fi Screenplay Contest, as well as the finals of the Nashville Film Festival Screenwriting Competition. Ann was also a Reader for the Austin Film Festival Screenplay & Teleplay Competition, which allowed her to experience the screenwriting competition process from the judge’s perspective. Through these experiences, she realized that not all competitions offer the same benefits or the same insights into the quality of the entered script.

To help other screenplay competition entrants determine how to select competitions that have the most potential to help improve their scripts and launch their careers, she wrote Screenplay Competitions: Tools and Insights to Help You Choose the Best Screenwriting Contests for You and Your Script. The book discusses how to enter screenplay competitions, what to expect from the competition process, and strategies to get the most from your entry (even if you don’t win).

About Jane A. Williams

Ms. Williams graduated from CSU Fullerton with a B.A. in English, a minor in History, and a teaching credential. After a short stint as a classroom teacher Jane Williams moved to Alaska where she worked for the Alaska legislature and also as a project director for a rural educational outreach study, which required her to travel throughout bush Alaska. She currently lives in the California Sierra foothills with her husband. She has two grown daughters who successfully navigated their home school educations from kindergarten through high school, both completing college with honors, primarily due to their abilities to learn the value of self-study rather than as a result of any particular teaching style or curriculum.

Jane Williams founded Bluestocking Press in 1988 with the following self-published titles:
How to Stock a Quality Home Library Inexpensively
Who Reads What When?
And later her Homeschool Market Guide.

Ms. Williams then expanded to publishing other authors' materials. Currently, she is the content editor of the Uncle Eric books by Richard Maybury as well as Common Sense Business for Kids by Kathryn Daniels. Ms. Williams is also the content editor and/or author of several of the Bluestocking Guides, which are student study guides for the Uncle Eric books. She is responsible for bringing Karl Hess' Capitalism for Kids back into print.

In the future Ms. Williams has plans to make available to parents and teachers, as a downloadable PDF, a resource listing of outstanding educational materials titled The Young Thinker's Bookshelf.
