Author Interview:
1. What inspired you to write the book?

The remarkable events’ following the death of our son was the inspiration. On a daily basis, we were receiving calls and emails from his friends and acquaintances, telling us they had dreamed of him or had symbols of his presence.

2. When did you realise that you want to write a book?

I am a psychiatric nurse and I have always encouraged my patients to journal in an effort to reconcile emotional conflict or pain. Following my own advice, my journal became the book.

3. Who helped you in writing the book and please say about their contributions?

I wrote the book alone, however my wonderful husband, David was instrumental in the format and the editing of the book and all of the computer needs.

4. How is your book going to inspire the readers?

SACRED MESSAGES offers hope to the individual suffering loss. It describes the proof of life after life and will change the way one looks at death. “One need only open their eyes to see.”

5. If you are given the chance to change one thing in your book what would it be?

I would have included more photographs, the one way to freeze time.

6. How do you find time to write and which part of the day is best for writing for you?
I am a Psyche nurse with a long commute. I often write as the other drivers drive. At other times I prefer writing into the early morning while the world sleeps, a quiet, pensive time.

7. Which books have inspired you the most, in the journey of writing this book?

Books written by authors who have also experienced spiritual and mystical events. The Bible will always be a source for me as well.

8. What is the best advice, you would give for writers who are trying to write a book?

Write down every thought. Keep a pen and tablet near your bed for those unexpected inspirations as you sleep.

9. What are your hobbies?
I enjoy traveling with my husband, reading, gardening, going to movies and wandering in dusty antique shops searching for treasure. Most of all however is the precious time spent with our sons, Matthew and Jason and our seven grandchildren….they are the core of my life.
10. What can we expect from you in the future?

I am currently writing a sequel to SACRED MESSAGES.
