What are you working on at the moment?
The book that I am writing on at the moment is part non-fiction/fiction, which is set 100 years in the past, and continues throughout the decades. This is based on my grandfather’s life who was known as the British Houdini which transforms into the mystical journey of adventure throughout the world, with illusion, magic, mysticism and wisdom.
Tell us about your latest work and how we can find out more.
Now It Begins is a comprehensive self-help book that draws upon personal testimony, professional guidance and the best of New Age thinking to empower people to fully take control of their lives. Split into 10 distinct "phases" it systematically tackles some of life's biggest and most personal questions about identity and interconnectivity, love and fear, and choice and destiny. At the heart the title is the simple assertion that once you can let go of illusion and draw upon a more fundamental, universal source of motivation, then you will reconnect with your true purpose on earth.
Illustrated throughout with ancient learning and short stories that gently bring home the important points being made, Now It Begins will consistently inspire and encourage people on their exciting journey to freedom and fulfilment.
The world is now on the verge of a great spiritual awakening and everybody owes it to them selves, and their neighbours, to tap into the limitless energy of the moment and bring about a lasting change for the better.
As the world is changing fast, a great shift of universal energy is taking place. Some of us are aware of this and are ready to move forward and leave behind an old world that has suffered from greed, selfishness, anger, blame and hatred. This means, raising our vibration of energy from within and connecting with one another on a higher and faster frequency that is happening now on this planet. For some this is inconceivable and for others, the transformation has already begun.
