Without further ado, here's the rest of the Thematic Tarot team!
Craig Conley has been called “a true Renaissance man of the modern era, diving headfirst into comprehensive, open-minded study of realms obscured or merely obscure” (Clint Marsh) and “America’s most creative and diligent scholar of letters, words and punctuation” (Encarta). He is a curator, benefactor, philosopher, author, music producer, and documentarian. A former college teacher of writing and literature, he left academia to pursue his research into one-letter words, two-fold deities, and ancient Zen versions of Rock-Paper-Scissors. In addition to his Magic Words: A Dictionary and One-Letter Words: A Dictionary, he has written several educational titles, including four editions of the textbook Human Diversity: A Guide for Understanding, published by McGraw-Hill. His latest documentary, “David Lynch and His Precursors,” traces the avant-garde filmmaker’s influence through time, to movies that predate Lynch’s own body of work. Philosopher and magician Lawrence Hass writes: “If David Lynch and Jorge Luis Borges created a book the result would be something very much like the writings of Craig Conley. As with those artists, Craig’s work creates truly remarkable and subtle effects. His books are ones to dream with and learn from.”
Conley is a visionary thinker. In 1999 he developed a new system of musical notation called “Do-Re-Midi,” allowing musical ideas, melody lines, riffs, arrangements, and even full scores to be easily shared via e-mail or other text-based English communication, with no special composing software or music font required. Novices can read Do-Re-Midi more easily than standard musical notation, as no more than a rudimentary familiarity with the musical scale is requisite.
Conley’s ideas are often decades ahead of their time. He invented the concept of the “virtual pet” in 1980, fifteen years before the debut of the popular “Tamagotchi” in Japan. Conley’s virtual pet was actually a rare flower that needed the proper water, light, fertilizer, and TLC in a computer game entitled “Florist.” He is pleased to report that his virtual flower is still flourishing and has in fact grown to a nearly incomprehensible size, though he cautions that “If the seed pod were to fall in the real world, we’d be facing a major catastrophe. Truly devastating.”
Elizabeth's readings are like spiritual spelunking. Tarot, read regularly over time, can peel away our defenses and manufactured layers. It helps reveal the lost parts of ourselves. These lost parts are more commonly buried treasure than shipwreck. Once these bits of spiritual booty make it to the surface, we can see our own futures.
Fortunetelling starts with discovery. Once we know ourselves, we can chart our own courses.

Ron Boyer is the co-creator and artist of the Snowland Tarot and Coffee Tarot. Although he's married to the founder, Janet, she shows no favoritism towards him--and offers frequent smackdowns. Ron works primarily in acrylics, although he's been known to do pyrography (aka woodburn), watercolor (he doesn't likey), carpentry (someone has to build Janet's bookcases), culinary feats (mean pear pie and potato soup), gardening (Janet calls him "Javier"), sculpture, intricate pencil art, Stringilism and other creative endeavors.
His favorite color is blue, and his favorite number is 9 (although he tends to have an aversion to numbers in general). Favorite creatives include T.C. Boyle, Richard Brautigan, Michael Graziano, Douglas Adams, Alex Grey and Normal Rockwell.
