Allysha Sujati Lavino is a writer and avid traveller whose studies in psychology, culture, religion, and human development have enabled her to work around the world. An active member of the hospitality and tourism industry, she has worked as a customer service representative for large companies as well as local operations.
After her own adventures and experiences living abroad in France, she started VesicAdventures with the dream of sharing deep travel with others. For the past five years, she has been working closely with Henry Lincoln learning firsthand the stories of his discoveries. Her upcoming debut novel, The Heretic, is based on her work with Lincoln, using his in-depth research to tell the epic story of Rennes-le-Château in a whole new way.
Henry Lincoln is the world's foremost expert on the region of France surrounding Rennes-le-Château. Co-author of 1982 best-seller Holy Blood, Holy Grail, his continued research has led him to incredible discoveries. As a writer, film-maker and historian, he specializes in knowledge of ancient myths and mysteries, codes and patterns, and has a passion for areas where the given history does not align with the evidence available.
He lives near Rennes-le-Château with his family and works to share the truth of his discoveries through the turmoil of controversy surrounding their broad-reaching implications. Read more about his current works on Henry Lincoln's Website.
