Woooohooo! I’m beyond excited for the release of this book & cannot wait to share the amazingly beautiful cover with you. Akasha joined us for a quick Movie Tag on the 9th of June 2016, read more about it Here.
Akasha first started writing Gothic stories to entertain her Halloween guests in St. Paul, Minnesota. She went to college in Minneapolis where the radio station nominated her to be Production Director and “The voice of WMMR”. Akasha enjoyed a wide range of musical influences from The Beatles, The Who, Prince, U2, Pearl Jam, The Replacements and house music. She then honed in on a show featuring dance music hosted with her honors’ writing classmate. Fortunately, the first PR proposal she ever wrote said ‘Yes’! Voila, First Avenue of “Purple Rain” fame sponsored her award-winning radio show. Akasha continued to round out her writing, PR and producer skills in alternative radio, event and video production, then travel from sea to shining sea.
Akasha’s proud of her work as a writer, producer, and actress; she balanced branding work as a writer and producer in Minneapolis, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, London, Paris/Cannes, Maui and Hawaii. She excels at helping clients shine with 15 awards/accolades since 2007.

We all have our own noise, both internal and external within the industry. The sooner we can hear the noise and quiet it, the sooner we’ll be able to shine through that noise.
My own noise came from working in temp jobs and film for free or low wages; I was what we’d call a starving artist in LA for several years. I was very fortunate that one of my managers at a temp job saw some great promise in me and my abilities and then became my mentor.
I then learned how to understand my creative and business strengths, the industry and the best ways to balance those strengths and present them professionally.
My wage and job offers went up as well as my job satisfaction and ability to do things besides just work to pay bills.
That mentor at American Express took me traveling on business and opened many intriguing doors. I’m grateful for that and go through lessons I’ve learned and can now share in the book Secrets to Shine through the noise.
It’s practical but also inspiring from what my readers and tribe have shared.
WOW! Epicness! Legend…Wait for It….DARY! Se Manifique, it looks like the cover of a beautiful movie and knowing Akasha, I’m sure it will be soon.
All I want to do is turn the page and begin reading.
