Behind every great idea is a great imagination. And every so often, when great imaginations combine, they form an immeasurable force.

Such is the story behind the creators of the magical media upon these pages.

Read on to find out a bit more about the individuals responsible for creating such vivid inspirations.
The World According to Garp was perhaps the first sign to a troubled young man that his life might very well be okay. It was incredibly reassuring to see that a young man from such a deeply interesting background can find his niche in life. G. Russell Gaynor was not nearly as challenged as T. S. Garp but until the revelation of the character, relatively speaking Russell was the weirdest kid on his block. His father, a career United States Navy man, taught him how to stand up to face the most challenging aspects of life including the unknown. His mother, a nurse and a technician for the U.S Geological Survey, taught him how to love and how to understand.

Russell was 5 when he found that people should be responsible for what they say when he had to write a story to back up his claim to his grandmother that he could do better in his sleep than the black and white movie he had watched. He handed two notebook pads to his grandmother who then agreed with his opinion. That was indeed the beginning!

In the beginning, it was mostly stories about super heroes and the stuff of comic books. Then came the works of Alexandre Dumas and the ideal of romantic heroes. Now there was a need to make women swoon and men weep and poetry was discovered and written. Russell was 12 when he went to his first play, which revealed a love for the stage and was 14 when role-playing games filled his head with the adventures of steel and sorcery. This all concluded with the love of the story and its effect on the audience.

Although life defies understanding, Russell has set about the challenge of teaching through his stories, in small baby steps, the lessons of love and life he has come to treasure since learning so much through the viewpoints of others.

It will always be the opinion of those who receive art to measure its worth, but to date Russell has penned nine books, twenty screenplays, two plays, over 2 scores of poems and a role-playing game system. This too is only a beginning!

Born to an English-teacher mother, there was little chance that Madolyn wouldn’t at least respect the written word. Everything from Shakespeare to a cereal box would catch her attention until every syllable had been read. This early and enduring love affair would in turn serve her well in her position as Editor of her High School’s literary magazine. College found her writing and editing for yet another literary magazine, but she soon began concentrating on her other creative outlet – Theatre. It was the love of theatre that inspired her to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Theatre Performance) at Auburn University.

Over time, she spent less and less time on creative endeavors until she met Quicksylver Production’s President, G. Russell Gaynor. Through his influence, she realized how much she had missed writing, and began to test the waters once again. That testing has resulted in quite a few accolades, including poems published in various trade magazines, placement as a semi-finalist in the Screenwriters Expo Script Writing Competition and as the winner of a Short Story Competition for Ebony Magazine. The completion of her first novel, aimed at Young Adults, was a personal triumph.

A true romantic at heart, enduring themes of love in all of its forms are to be found in her writing whether screenplay, short story, novel, or poem.

Though she has a background in theatre, film and photography, it is rather her experience as an Executive Assistant, event planner, professional organizer and in project management that Madolyn Locke brings to the table as Quicksylver, Inc.’s Managing Director. With nearly 10 years in corporate management, Madolyn juggles the various creative departments of Quicksylver & is always eager for a new challenge.
