I have always been fascinated with Atlantis. I discovered it when I was sixteen during a phase where I was dissatisfied with my religion. I spent a lot of time in the library, studying books on various world religions. The study of Hinduism led me to past lives, and then to the new age section where I found the work of Edgar Cayce. He was known as the sleeping prophet, and was famous for his past life readings, particularly the ones in Atlantis. My imagination has been hooked since then. I have never been conventional. My whole life has been devoted to my artistic path. I have traveled for decades, embodying the famous quote from the Hobbit "Not all who wander are lost."

I was raised Catholic. When I was a teenager I was distressed by the ritual and lack of spirituality, love and compassion. I felt like it didn't practice what it preached. I was very abused in Catholic school by the teachers and other students. They didn't understand my sensitive nature. For a long time I had disdain for all religion. But I'm lucky to be in a family who are very spiritual about catholicism. I can't say as though I'm back to being religious, but I respect it now, and appreciate the doctrine from a scholarly perspective. Honestly, there are some Christian undertones in my work. As for the second part of your question, I have been researching atlantis voraciously for almost 30 years. One can say it's an obsession. Every aspect of my work includes reference to my research. In a way it's my dissertation. (less)

Sooner or later, it will come. It's best to avoid struggling, and self-judgement in the process. (less)

Winter Must Go

I just reached the end of a month long blog tour with Silver Dagger Book Tours. I have to admit, I get caught up in my writing sometimes, and it's difficult to break away and follow links and look at blogs. But it looks like I managed to gain a bunch of new fans, which is really exciting. This past holiday season gave me the gift of a surge in the Shadows of Atlantis followers. It's been a wish of Read more of this blog post »

"Loved it!

Such an enjoyable read. Beautifully & creatively written. Visceral descriptions of characters and the surrounding, you feel connected and immersed. Looking forward to Symbiosis. ~amber"

Shadow of Atlantis is a very unique and interesting take on the legend. I like reading it, the mythology is on point- well established and very interesting. Although writing is a bit dense at times and there is a" Read more of this review »

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Mara Powers I added Shadows of Atlantis: Awakening to the Smashwords summer sale. Since I am seeking reader reviews, I have decided to offer the ebook for free all of July!
I have managed to finish a grand edit of book two of the series "Shadows of Atlantis: Initiation"
It's such an exciting endeavor because, well, to be honest, I think book two knocks the first book out of the park. So, get your free copy of book one and join the hype for the release of book two by this Halloween.
Here's the link. It expires July 31. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...
Enter the code SSW75 for 100% discount upon hitting the buy link.
