Neal R. Voron contributes lyrics and lyric inspiration for several songs and is RyKy's Records' publisher, marketer, webmaster, and ebook writer/producer.

Neal's song, "We Thought She'd Live Forever", co-written with Pokorny, led to the founding of RyKy Records and is a climactic song in the "Wind Dance Musical".

Voron's self-help/inspirational novel, "The Obstacle Course", was the inspiration for the upcoming "The Obstacle Course Musical", written by Pokorny.
