An Air Force veteran who held a Top Secret/ Crypto clearance, Tom is now a retired Philadelphia area businessman. He has been a Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) State Section Director for Southeastern Pennsylvania from 1986 to 2001, a Special Investigator for the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies [CUFOS] from 1991 to 2001, and a member of the CUFOS board of directors from 1997 to 2001. Tom began investigating aspects of the Roswell Incident in 1991 for the Roswell investigative team of Kevin Randle and Don Schmitt, and since 1998 has teamed exclusively with Don Schmitt to continue a proactive investigation of the case. Tom has authored or coauthored more than 40 published articles about the Roswell events of 1947, and has contributed to a number of books on the subject as well. He has appeared as a guest on many radio and TV shows throughout the country, including Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell and George Noory, Fox and Friends, Comcast Network Friends and Larry King Live! and has contributed to a number of Roswell-related documentaries - on-screen and behind the scenes. Tom was a consultant and interviewee on the highly acclaimed and rated 2002, two-hour SyFy Channel documentary, The Roswell Crash: Startling New Evidence, the History Channel’s Conspiracy Theory, the Travel Channel’s Weird Travels - Roswell, the SyFy Channel’s SyFy Investigates and the History Channel’s, The UFO Hunters. He was also a featured interviewee on the 20th Century Fox, Golden Anniversary, re-release DVD of the 1951 sci-fi classic, The Day the Earth Stood Still. His 2007 book, co-authored with Don Schmitt, Witness to Roswell: Unmasking the 60-Year Cover-Up, was the #1 best-selling UFO book in the world in 20072008. Its sequel, Witness to Roswell: Unmasking the Government’s Biggest Cover-Up, published 2009, still remains a best seller. Both books are considered to be the best books ever written about the “Roswell Incident.” A motion picture, based upon these books, titled Majic Men, is nearing production, as is a TV mini-series based on the book. A new book about the secret history of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base titled Inside the Real Area 51, also co-authored with Don Schmitt, is scheduled for release in August of 2013. Another book about Roswell, with Don Schmitt and fellow-researcher Kevin Randle, is in preparation for a 2014 release. Tom and his wife of 45 years, Doreen, have two grown children and reside in Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania.

Patty Greer In the summer of 2007 Patty Greer had a life altering OBE (outof-body-experience) in the center of an English Crop Circle. She passed out and awoke with a strange feeling that she had been seriously “re-calibrated.” Not understanding these new sensations she soon learned that ‘Something’ had changed the course of her life that day. In the following two years Patty Greer produced four full feature Crop Circle and UFO documentaries on her own. With no training, experience, or previous interest in film making or UFOs whatsoever, she brings tremendous new data and enthusiasm to Crop Circle research. Greer produced a 5th movie two years later and it offers astounding new ET images! Once she began creating the movie projects she couldn’t slow the momentum down. Editing 11-15 hours a day, Patty melded mentally back to England and into the Crop Circle energies. The movies happened through intuitive promptings and telepathic direction. The cinematography is unusually clear. The footage seems to repeatedly show that many Crop Circles are REAL! And that Balls of Light are involved in the process of their physical manifestation. Greer’s 5th movie is totally over the top with footage of Balls of Light up close. Witnesses claim to have seen ‘Illuminated Light Beings
come out of the Balls of Light one night!’ Greer’s movies are known to offer uniquely updated data and materials about what appears to be “The REAL Crop CircleMakers.” Crop Circles may be the first physical manifestation of ET communication that humanity can see. They’ve appeared in farm fields around the world for hundreds of years without relenting. We’ve seen sacred geometric patterns and binary codes, messages that have been decoded. Pictograms and planetary layouts have been seen in Crop Circles, might they be messages of importance? For the past 40 years more than 150 Crop Circles have been documented annually, with many of them looking incredibly intricate and covering acres of crop. Last year there were 69 new Crop Circles in England alone, did we hear about them in the news? Probably not. It’s time we take them more seriously now because THIS is how ETs are communicating with us. They are using a universal language that has few barriers : Art. Patty Greer has visited more than 100 Crop Circles personally and become an integral part of the unfolding Crop Circle story. She won 6 prestigious awards for the films and the movies have been screened around the world, receiving rave reviews. Greer documented her discoveries in the center of the phenomenon in Wiltshire England in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011. She brings her stories to life with amazing and authentic footage, to back up her claims quite clearly. Finally we know more about Crop Circles and the REAL CircleMakers!

Larry Holcombe’s introduction into the world of Ufology came in the late 1950’s after reading two of Major Donald Keyhoe’s books; Flying Saucers are Real and Flying Saucers from Outer Space. A year later, after watching Keyhoe debate an Air Force officer on the old Armstrong Circle Theater, and seeing Keyhoe being censored when he deviated from the prepared script the Air Force forced on the show’s producers, Larry was convinced the Air Force was covering up knowledge of flying saucers, later to be changed UFO’s. Those events started a fifty plus year avocation into the study and research of the UFO phenomenon. In 2006 he took early retirement and started his first novel, The
Great River Disclosure, a thriller based on the government coverup of an extraterrestrial presence visiting earth. His second novel in the Disclosure Trilogy, Satan’s Angel, was released this past fall in eBook format. In researching background for the novels he became intrigued by a 1970’s NBC-TV documentary, UFOS: Past, Present & Future. The documentary endorsed the theory that some UFO’s were extraterrestrial and astonishingly the documentary seemed to have the support of the government. Larry was able to locate the writer/co-producer of the documentary, Bob Emenegger, and Emenegger provided him with some remarkable background information on the making of the documentary that involved the Nixon Administration. From this background the idea of a work of non-fiction began to shape built around the documentary, the Nixon Administration, and the involvement of all modern presidents in the UFO phenomenon. A detailed book proposal was developed and in the fall of 2012 the rights to “The History of Modern Presidents and the UFO Enigma was purchased by St. Martin’s Press. Since the first of the year Larry has been traveling to research the book with a release date expected in early 2014. He has done a number of radio interviews and most recently with Pat Schouten host of The Fringe Radio Show on KTKK AM630, Salt Lake City. He continues to believe that the Roswell Incident was the defining event that has shaped the governments handling of this historical phenomenon. His lectures this year will include “Six indisputable facts that the Roswell Incident was an extraterrestrial event” and his soon to be released book, “The History of Modern Presidents and the UFO Enigma”. Anyone with information on the subject or interest in Larry’s work can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit his web site at www.larryholcombe.com. He can also be reached by phone at 804-529-1008.

Sharon King has been an early childhood Teacher, Program Coordinator & a Director in child care centers for over 26 years. She has always liked doing arts and crafts and working with children. Over the years she has made many fun activities to share with children. Her book Junior Alien Zone is a fun and interesting arts and crafts, and activity book about Aliens which can be used in many different ways. Sharon never thought she would write a children book and then it happened. In the summer of 2004, she and her husband took their niece and family on vacation to Roswell, NM. While they were there, they learned about the UFO Festival held every July. Sharon had so many ideas, she started to write them all down and the rest is history…a book was born. Thirty three days after Junior Alien Zone was published, she had her first book signing. It took place at the Roswalien Experience 2009 Festival in the International UFO Museum & Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico. The book received a lot of attention and positive exposure. Sharon’s new book titled “Oops Was Bullied?” tells the tale of two beings – a wee extraterrestrial named Oops and a young Earth girl – who become friends when Oops crashes to Earth. They couldn’t be more different: different languages, different points of view, different backgrounds, all packed into two very different little bodies. In fact, it’s those differences that lead to a harsh reality for tiny Oops, who is bullied because he’s not like others. Written for children from preschool age through grade five, the juvenile fiction, Oops Was Bullied? is a fun and easy read that teaches children valuable lessons about the consequences of bullying through the eyes of her vibrant and lovable characters. Sharon lives in Amarillo, Texas, with her husband of 43 years, Charles. They have three adult children, four grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and two dogs.

Thomas Reed is an award winning South Beach fashion photographer, and the founder of Miami Models, w/clients: Polo Black Label, Tommy Hilfiger, and Ralph Lauren. He held positions in upper management with companies, Honeywell and Entergy. The historic UFO case of the Reed Family, was assigned a Vallee classification of “CE4” (close encounter of the 4th kind), with a Case Category of 3 (physical evidence). The case has many layers and is deeply entwined and remains one of a few CE4 cases to be mentioned within the walls of the United Nations. The history involves Marian Burrows, grandmother, Nancy Reed, mother, and the two brothers, Thom and Matthew. The evidence in this case would include a significant amount of radiation, and strong magnetic fields, and is one of a few to have been collected and documented by those in law enforcement. The Reed encounters date back to June of 1954, with Marian and Nancy, while in a cabin at Moosehead Lake, Maine. The boys, Thom and Matthew had their first encounter, in September of 1966, while on their horse farm in Sheffield, Massachusetts. The second encounter on the Reed’s horse farm came the following year in the fall of 1967. This encounter involved the entire family. The family’s final encounter, and one that would cause them to sell their home and restaurant, the “Village Green”, and relocate, took place in September of 1969. Nancy, Marian, Thom and Matthew, were driving home following a horse show, at about 8:00 at night, when they observed what Marian referred to as a bright “floating strip mall” above the left side of the station wagon. What can only be described as some sort of energy running through the body was felt by the family before their car began to stall and coast to the right side of the road. Only the sounds of stones tapping under the fender walls of their car were heard, followed by a dead silence. A barometric change in pressure was felt before triggering a deafening eruption of katydids and crickets. The family has collectively been able to reconstruct and piece together much of that night in September of 1969 aboard the vessel. With that said, many have asked what the beings looked like, that were seen by the Reeds, and there has been a lot of speculation on the terminology. The best way to describe what was witnessed would be a genetically engineered or manufactured
intelligent insect-type being with some human characteristics, such as hands, that would stand and vary from three to five feet in height. Several of Thom’s childhood sketches from 1969, depicting what he witnessed first-hand involving his encounters, are displayed at the Roswell UFO Museum. It should be noted that the crafts that landed on the Reed’s property were also seen by numerous members of the community and their children. Thom was not the only child to draw renderings, as many of the children penciled what they had seen, which also hung next to Thom’s, beneath the chalk board in his fourth grade classroom. By the 1980’s, Thom’s father, Attorney Howard Reed, PhD, was in local office and had met Attorney Robert Bletchman and several others with political ties and aspirations. On October 2, 1992, the Reed’s case would assist their personal attorney’s efforts, (Robert Bletchman) by adding credible and corroborated testimony, to include the Reeds’ statements on the barometric change in pressure, electromagnetic “vibe”, calming state, and the manipulation of gravity, which was voiced by Robert at the United Nations Symposium. The objective of the Symposium was to introduce substantiated cases to motivate the U.N. to reconsider 33/426. (33/426 references an establishment of an agency or a dept. of the U. N. for undertaking, coordinating and disseminating the results of research into unidentified flying objects.). This came 10 days before NASA began SETI’s Microwave Observing Project (MOP/HRMS). Thomas comes from a grounded and well respected family in New England, and is the son of Dr. Howard Reed, a college professor and attorney, who also served the community on the Canaan Board of Selectmen. Howard was also strongly supported by Senator Christopher Dodd, in his run for office. In the fall of 2006, and soon after voicing his upcoming book project on the family’s experiences with vessels and other life forms, to include a compilation of sensitive material gathered over the years as well as referencing many of Robert Bletchman’s notes and research, Howard suffered an untimely death on the same day, October 2nd, 14 years after the United Nations Symposium on October 2nd, 1992. The CDC, on sweeping Howard’s office, reported finding a vial containing the deadly virus in his air conditioning unit. The building was closed and remains closed to this day. Oct. 6th was then proclaimed a day of remembrance in Howard’s honor, by the City of Bridgeport, CT. A Ph.D. who released his test results regarding the Reed case after evaluating family members, on September 15, 2010, was also found dead on November 12th, 2010, just eight weeks later.

Derrel W. Sims
Derrel W. Sims had his first encounter with an alien presence more than forty years ago. As he grew older, he experienced a malignant contact with these alien beings that would alter his life forever. At a young age, he made the decision that he would no longer willingly be victim to their bizarre quests. With the abduction of his young son, he was determined to change his role in life from being the “hunted” to the “hunter”. Every path he took would equip him mentally, physically and intellectually to become a warrior for his cause and to assume the role he was born to play. Sims has spent the past three decades researching the world of alien beings. His area of focus has dealt primarily with medical and scientific evidence of human/alien contact. To that end, he has spent years studying and training in a broad range of areas that would provide him with a full array of skills necessary for his search to find evidences of these entities. From his accomplishments and certifications in hypnotherapy, to his education in Graphoanalysis (handwriting analysis), he has pursued extensive training to assist in his efforts to aid abductees in reclaiming memories of their experiences. In addition to learning the methods for memory retrieval, Sims has acquired considerable training in police, military, intell and investigative work. These assets are critical to aid in the search, rescue and discovery of alien evidence. Being the first to collect and share the concept of alien implants, Sims has been sought by those in the UFO communities, as well as those within the medical and scientific communities, to share his breakthrough methods at worldwide conferences. In addition to this global recognition, he has
been acknowledged for his contributions via a series of awards and commendations. His acclaim is further recognized through the many requests he receives annually to appear on a variety of radio and television shows, where he shares his knowledge with thousands across the globe. Derrel Sims is the Alien Hunter.
Yvonne Smith began life normally enough: was mascot for her high school football team and that same year was asked to be a participant on the national t.v. “Dating Game’ program. She moved on to be in charge of the jury room for the busiest courthouse in the United States in Los Angeles…during which time she attended a lecture by hypnotherapist pioneer Budd Hopkins. She then became hooked by his presentation in learning that hypnotherapy was such a useful tool in helping people suffering from PTSD. Smith therefore began researching the UFO phenomenon in the late 1980s. After 2 years of studies and 1000 hours of internship a California Hypnosis Motivation Institute, the only accredited hypnosis college in the United States, she received her hypnotherapy certification in 1990. Specializing in cases of post traumatic stress disorder, she uses her hypnotherapy skills to assist such victims to work through their anxiety, with many of her subjects referred to her by physicians and psychiatrists who believe Smith=s expertise can benefit their patients. In fact, many such patients are themselves doctors, university professors, military, engineers, lawyers, domestic and foreign pilots other professionals and many non-professionals, sometimes flying from other countries to meet with Smith in Los Angeles. In UFO circles, whenever there is a reported “sighting” UFO investigators emphasize and evaluate whether the experiencer=s description supports, or not, the reality of a UFO contact. However, the emphasis of recognized regressive hypnotherapy expert Yvonne Smith concerns the too frequently ignored emotional trauma on the experiencer of their encounter. Because Smith (who is internationally known in UFO circles as simply “hypnotherapist Yvonne”) observed that many of the PTSD cases being referred to her involved subjects describing similar patterns of UFO abduction encounters, she founded Close Encounters Resource Organization [CERO] as a monthly-meeting support group for such individuals in 1992. She was also on the board of the Organization for Paranormal Understanding and Support (OPUS) which furthers support for such subjects. CERO International is an exciting new branch of CERO, Close Encounters Resource Organization, which was founded in 1991 by Certified Hypnotherapist, Yvonne Smith. The original CERO has for over 20 years conducted monthly support group meetings as a resource and safe-haven for experiencers of alien abductions or close encounters . Most recently Yvonne founded the open-to-the-public CERO International which branches out from the Alocal@ Southern California nature of its private support group CERO International expands nationally and internationally, and provides information, support and cutting-edge world wide UFO presentations and news. Its inaugural meeting in January presented AFire in the Sky@ Travis Walton and his fellow logger-witnesses, Steve Pierce and John Goulette. By hosting presentations by experiencers and researchers of international reputation, CERO International will step outside of and supplement its closed door support group meetings and educate the general public about the reality of the UFO phenomenon and the trauma to which experiencers may be subjected. In addition to being a hypnotherapist Ain demand@, since 1991 Yvonne has traveled extensively, presenting lectures in the United States at M.I.T. and several other universities, at many American AUFO@ conferences. The Roswell International UFO Museum
annually invites Yvonne to present multiple lectures, be a panel member, and be moderator of their investigator panel. She has also lectured and conducted many standing-room-only and record breaking experiencer sessions at the International UFO Congress in Nevada, U.S.A., and has also lectured for several years at international conferences from South America to Europe. As the foremost female hypnotherapist in this field, in the 1990s Yvonne traveled on a lecture tour with hypnotherapy colleagues the late Dr. John Mack of Harvard and pioneer Budd Hopkins, and also David Jacobs, PhD. of Temple University. Yvonne is the author of ACHOSEN: Recollections of UFO Abductions Through Hypnotherapy@ which exposes, with dramatic regressive hypnotherapy transcripts, the hidden memory trauma reality suffered by abductees. Budd Hopkins and Yvonne are the subjects of the DVD, AAlien Hybrids & Clinical Hypnotherapy.@ which is volume 1 from the Secrets of the Underground series. Further, as a Co-Host with Maj. Robert Dean, NATO ret., Yvonne is the abduction hypnotherapist lecturer on Dreamland=s UFO Anthology Vol-1 DVD. For more information about ACHOSEN@ visit www.YSmith.com ABOUT “CHOSEN: Recollections of UFO Abductions Through Hypnotherapy” In CHOSEN Yvonne Smith, a certified hypnotherapist specializing in the use of hypnotherapy to assist those who suffer post traumatic stress as a result of “close encounters” reveals the trauma of such individuals experiences. Such abductees’ experiences are more realistically described in CHOSEN than in previous publications due to many dramatic, unedited transcripts of subjects describing their trauma during their hypnotherapy.
Travis Walton is the subject of the Paramount Studios movie, Fire in the Sky, based on his book of the same name. On November 5, 1975 he was a 22 year-old member of a seven-man logging crew cutting trees in the forested mountain region of Arizona. On the way home from work, the crew encountered a strange glowing object, resulting in an incident that has become recognized as the best documented case of alien abduction ever recorded. Walton recklessly left the safety of their truck to take a closer look. Suddenly as he walked toward the light, he was blasted back by a bolt of mysterious energy. When his companions fled in fear and reported their UFO encounter, they were suspected of murder and give polygraph exams. They all passed. After a five day massive manhunt searching for Walton – or his body – he suddenly reappeared, disoriented and initially unable to tell the whole story of his terrifying encounter. In Fire in the Sky, Walton relates in his own words the best documented account of alien abduction yet recorded, the story of his harrowing ordeal at the hands of silent captors, his return to a disbelieving world, interrogators, press, debunkers and his efforts to try to make a truly significant contribution to the world’s understanding of this phenomenal after all. He speaks to audiences and media around the world to share what it has been like living through the ordeal of the experience and its aftermath. He presents the evidence for the incident and takes wide-ranging questions from the audience, which usually results in bringing out new perspectives and bits of information previously overlooked

Amy LaVere was born in Louisiana and moved around as a GM brat (“Dad moved around to open factories”), and the family eventually settled near Detroit, at least everyone but her father, who continued to travel for work. The family structure eventually gave way. She and her sister rebelled, and one of the ways Amy did so was by joining a band at age 14. Rebellion is still a potent theme for her, and she continues to defy and test love’s constraints, adding to the body count of the last album (“Killing Him”) with “Red Banks,” a sly turn on the blues/country yarn where the girl usually ends up getting it in the end. In “Damn Love Song,” she finally writes the love song that her lover has longed for, but it’s practically spit at him as she is walking out the door. “You Can’t Keep Me” is a insolent pop song that warns that she won’t be held captive in her relationship as a building cacophony of horns and Theremin joyously celebrate her imminent freedom.
