     Vibrant Publishing traces its roots all the way back to 1992 when Stephanie Castle created Perceptions Press to publish her first book, “Feelings”.  This book is still in print today.

     Over the years Stephanie went on to publish more of her own tittles and those of other authors. In 2005, with Stephanie approaching her 80th birthday, she sold Perceptions Press to Roz Shakespeare.

     Vibrant Publishing was created with Perceptions Press as its foundation and  Vibrant Publishing has been growing steadily since then.


Blue Badger Books:  When I chose to develop a separate image and imprint for children's books I wanted something that was colorful and fun.  I also wanted an image that would convey a deeper spiritual message.  The color was the easier part as blue represents the throat chakra and the gift of communication. 

The color was the easier part as blue represents the throat chakra and the gift of communication.  I wanted the image to represent something to both children and adults.  I went into the world of animals and chose Badger.  Badger represents self-expression and storytelling.  The Badger is quick to express their feelings and has the courage to use unconventional methods.  Badger is also the keeper of the Earth's healing herbs.

Our Authors Bios

Sharon Tenenbaum

     Sharon is a photographer rather than an author and yet I still call her an author because her photos ‘speak to me’.  I have heard people refer to her photos as spiritual.  Her eye is fantastic.  Some of her work has been published in National Geographic.  She lives in Vancouver but travels the globe for her art.


Rebecca Ananda

     Rebecca studied writing at Concordia University and acting at Vancouver’s Studio 58.  She has the ‘travel bug’ in her system and a passion for writing.  Her most recent trips have been to South America and India.  I suspect there are more stories to be told.

Joy - a feeling evoked by well-being, success or good fortune

Joy's passion is in assisting people to see the unique and amazing human being inside them.  She is committed to assisting you in setting goals, overcoming obstacles and loving yourself.
