kyle-autumnKYLE

Kyle Autumn is the author of sexy contemporary romances that will melt your heart and your panties. She also writes erotic short stories series that will likely melt your panties more than your heart. Her debut book will release in January of 2017, the first in a series of three romances centered around four woman (two of which are package handlers for a delivery service) who meet up every Thursday at their favorite bar.
Though she writes a lot, she generally has Netflix running in the background. Some of her favorites include Supernatural, iZombie, Heart of Dixie, Downton Abbey, The Blacklist, and Sons of Anarchy. She loves romcoms, Marvel movies, and anything with Chris Pine, Theo James, or Ryan Reynolds in it. As far as books go, she went through a paranormal/urban fantasy romance phase and fell in love with everything from the Night Huntress series and the Fever series to the Twilight series. But she’s also obsessed with Emily Giffin, Janet Evanovich, and Nicholas Sparks books, so who knows. Plus, she’s a sucker for a good YA romance too. You just never know with her. 😉

Nicola Matthews was born in Biloxi, MS in 1975. Raised in southern Mississippi, she still resides in her small hometown with her husband of twenty years, their three children, and their pet Yorkie, Lily-Claire. She loves music and her favourite thing to do to de-stress is crank up the tunes and hit the treadmill. Nicola enjoys reading as well as watching movies, shopping, and meeting new people. Her favourite genres include mystery thrillers and supernatural/fantasy movies and books.

Nicola’s love affair with reading and books first began at the age of seven, when she immolated her favourite author at the time, Dr. Seuss. As the years passed, her passion for writing and reading turned into a way to escape a broken and oftentimes violent home life. She funnelled her love for all things creative into her writing, penning her first novel at the age of thirteen. By her graduating year in high school, she had racked up over one thousand rejection letters. Undaunted, she opened her own publishing house in 2005 and began publishing her own works. Today, she works for a multi-million dollar technology reseller by day and continues to write, publish, and do graphic artwork and book formatting during her free time.

Fandoms include Black Veil Brides, Davey Suicide, Echo Black, A War Within, Bret Michaels Band, Anne Rice, Laurell K.

THE FH2H ORIGIN STORY

From Helios to Hollywood spent better than two years as a wish list item for Pure Textuality PR owner Jena Gregoire.  The idea was originally a meme on our blog, but typing the words “the movie blows compared to the book” got old quickly and the meme was retired.

Months later, Jena got the idea to turn the meme into a podcast.  Without the time or resources to move forward with the production, the idea sat simmering on the back burner.

A few months ago, while sitting around with Pure Textuality PR staffers Dubo and Mel, we started tossing the podcast idea back and forth again.  Rather than limit ourselves to only talking about books-turned-film, we settled on just talking about whatever we wanted.  All of us are pop culture addicts and it made much more sense to open the subject matter up to whatever we wanted to chat about at the time.

In January 2016, Jena announced her move to full time with Pure Textuality PR.  The change in schedule gave her the opportunity to finally move forward with From Helios to Hollywood.

The first episode of From Helios to Hollywood was taped Friday February 5, 2016, on the evening of Jena’s last day of work, and the podcast is now available via YouTube, SoundCloud, and iTunes.

In November 2016, we decided to expand FH2H from being just a podcast to a full pop culture blog.
