Are our lives already in a book? Do we just need to write it?
I decided to write a novel after thinking about the many different things that I had discovered whilst studying archaeology, history and researching into genealogy.
Life experiences had accompanied me, as yet I had not assimilated them in to my thoughts. Upon assisting a friend with her genealogical research, I wanted to investigate my family and my husbands lineage. Undertaking this investigation, along with my interest in history, some deep questions arose. My love of the eras; ancient, pre-history and early medieval, started to comfortably slot in to place.
A major change to my thinking came when I decided (out of the blue...or was it?) to visit a medium. I had never been to a reading before but felt strangely compelled to go.
The medium, was able to tell me things she could not have known, even to painting a picture of me as a child. Other things described astonished me, especially as I was completely sceptical and volunteered very little information. One further point they added, I was writing a book. I sat astounded, and declared to her in that moment I felt like I had just woken up.
Looking at me, she simply laughed, almost as though it had been expected.
I went away and thought about everything. As I began my journey to discover more, many things started to happen. A new understanding that I had to acquire knowledge, to be open to visions or dreams and generally be more aware. To this day I am open to new ideas and new discoveries.
So, why write a book?
Fated or otherwise, I had already started.
Now with new avenues to explore, as well as looking back on my life to this point, suddenly everything began to slot in to place. Like a jigsaw puzzle, the parts slowly joined to create a bigger picture. A picture with many peep holes remaining.
Now I have just published my first novel, The Windmill.
The book already known by the medium. I am at present writing another story which will compliment The Windmill and lead to a series of books that will all connect together and answer the questions, I hope the reader may have.
