Her Masters' dissertation explored angelology in Jewish mysticism and she has published several books on this topic. She also writes poetry. Since an original idea in the 1970s, she has been the overall architect of Roll Over Jehovah!

Will Shaman—Music and Lyrics

Picture of Will Shaman

Will had a passion for music ever since he mimed with a walking stick while watching Oh Boy! on television at the age of five. In his teens, he worked with his father writing and performing humorous songs to great critical acclaim. For most of his life he worked professionally as a designer (handmade wallpapers, books, websites, you name it...). The task of writing the songs for Roll Over Jehovah! was a perfect vehicle for his strong desire to prick the balloons of dogma, both religious and political. Sadly, Will died in October 2021, but his music lives on.

Tim Jarman—Book

Picture of Tim Jarman Tim studied English Literature at Oxford, where he narrowly escaped a career in academia, and then programmed computers for a living. His interests include philosophy, world history, esoterica of all kinds, and all manifestations of the Creative, especially music, poetry and drama. He is a published poet and short story writer, and is currently in negotiations for the publication of his first novel. Roll Over Jehovah! is a natural expression of his belief that life is a miraculous and joyful thing, and the world might be a better place if more people noticed.
