C.J. Heck
“We all have an inner voice, our personal whisper from the universe. All we have to do is listen -- feel and sense it with an open heart. Sometimes it whispers of intuition or precognition. Other times, it whispers an awareness, a remembrance from another plane. Dare to listen. Dare to hear with your heart.”

“We writers are a crazy group. I can't think of any other profession where the actual work is deep within, uncomfortable, and wanting out.”
