I have been a seeker of the deeper meaning of life from a very early age. I knew
there had to be more to understanding the world and people based on what you
could see, touch or hear. I would glean what I could from the pages of the few books
I could find in school and public libraries regarding metaphysical subjects,
unsatisfied at the meager volumes they employed.
I also began collecting poetry that caused me to think, words and works that created
feelings more than the superficial first impression. I found that I could also write
poetry and prose. It has been a satisfying way of expressing my thoughts and has
helped me to make sense of life and love, a way to heal, purge or simply share
something from inside of me.
I possess what I call a “jukebox” in my head that plays an eclectic playlist. As a
teenager I would find myself sharing my own songs with the seagulls and sky while
driving the tractor on the family farm. As tunes and lyrics come to my mind, I am
sometimes able to write them down in less than 10 minutes. Inspiration does not
always come at convenient times. I have written on napkins in restaurants, on postit
notes while walking
down the street and on envelopes at traffic lights. Many of the
songs I have written have been lighthearted and mainstream, played by my close
friends in garage bands. They have even recorded a few.
In the past decade I have had the privilege of knowing many gifted psychics and
healers. They have shared with me their knowledge and wisdom, which has allowed
my soul to dig even deeper into the “unknown” and contemplate my own belief
system, my own knowing, my own truths. I studied a variety of topics and
discovered my connection to the angelic realm to be one that makes my soul sing
and brings me profound peace. It was through channeling the angels that I was able
to write and publish my first book, Rising Above Organized Religion: The Journey To
The Higher View.
The idea for Preflight and subsequent books in this series came to me after I had
read several books regarding reincarnation, soul agreements and contracts, life in
the spirit world, etc. It occurred to me that the concepts of new age and
metaphysical ideas could be brought to the masses in a way that was more easily
understood and perhaps closer to home. Preflight may be enjoyed as pure fantasy or
taken to a deeper level of understanding of our roles in each others lives and the
creation of our own realities as souls having a human experience and recognizing a
Higher Power that is a part of everything.
Music seemed a natural thing to be included in Preflight. The songs came to my
mind quickly and joyfully. There is nothing like music to bring people together. I am
grateful to my talented and gifted musicians and singers who understood my vision
and joined me for this first venture.
Boise, Idaho is my current residence. I enjoy the company of four children, two
grandchildren and a puppy named Nick. When I am not caring for the sick and
injured in my full-time work as a registered nurse, I travel to diverse places that the
Earth has to share with us.
