Thank you, Sandy! What I learned from this experience and firmly believe now, is that when someone 'dies' their spirit lives on. I grew up hearing about Heaven. Now I know it's real. I believe Heaven is our word for this other place, or levels of existence, that we move onto after this life ends. I know this now. And while we usually don't have contact with those who have 'passed on,' on occasion - we do. So many people have. Just about everyone has a story like mine, or knows of someone who does. Our loved ones know what we are up to! They can contact us if the need is sufficient and the time is right. That is wonderful! A great gift to me when I needed it most. I miss my dad very much. And others in my life who have passed on. And I've always been curious about eternity and abilities we have but haven't explored. Everytime I share with a stranger that I write about the supernatural, they always have a story to tell. About a visit, an experience. Something inexplicable, fascinating, often a comfort. I've always loved reading. I am never without a book! And one way I deal with my curiosity is by writing fiction that deals with the soul, with life after death, and unanswered questions regarding reality. In a novel I can work it all out through my heroine, have fun, and really take a look at these fascinating questions, while throwing in a villain, a possible love interest, and the shockingly unexpected. Works for me!
