On her first two albums, 2013’s Lost and Found and 2014’s Bloom, Unfold, Wither, singer-songwriter Karen Dezelle took listeners on a mesmerizing journey through her thoughts and emotions, bringing them to life by way of introspective lyrics layered atop beautiful melodic flourishes. In support of those albums, Dezelle performed her unique brand of acoustic folk at famed venues across the United States and the UK including the House of Blues, The Hotel Cafe, Hotel Utah, The Bitter End and at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas.

Dezelle, who recently returned to Los Angeles after living in New York for several months, will soon be releasing her third album, Room for Two. On the first single, “Alchemy,” Dezelle sings of change and reflection, her voice softly dancing along a hypnotic beat and cascading instrumentals.

Lorraine Carey

Lorraine Carey’s love of books becomes glaringly apparent when you read her resume: she is an experienced children’s reading specialist, a teacher, and an award-winning author of several paranormal and mystery books. Carey has taught in Ohio, Arizona, New Mexico, California, and her current home, Grand Cayman, where she continues to write and work with children.

A love of ghost stories and scary movies at a young age inspired Carey to pursue the paranormal genre as a writer. Her stories are often founded on personal experiences with the paranormal and strange historical facts, which she heightens with a twist of magic and gripping mystery. Because of her teaching experience, most of Carey’s work is geared toward a middle grade or young adult audience. Years of reading with children showed her what kids want in a story, and inspired her to write for young readers.

Roxanne Price Love Ranch

In his 1890 novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde famously wrote, “The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it,” and for decades, the state of Nevada has been a prime destination for those looking to yield to their unique temptations. Las Vegas and Reno may boast bright lights and glittering casinos, but on the outskirts of Carson City, the women working at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch have been making the fantasies of customers a reality since 2008.

A “girl next door” who enjoys being active and spending time in the sun, but also loves curling up with a good book or video game, Roxanne Price moved to Nevada from the Gulf coast of Texas in 2014. She began working as a courtesan at the Love Ranch and, over the past two years, has used her compassion, sensitivity and strong communication skills to please clients from around the world. Roxanne’s goal is to not only fulfill the fantasies of her clients, but also to enhance their personal lives by connecting with them on both an intellectual and sexual level.
