I was no longer afraid of the dark when I became one with the darkness. By facing one’s worst fears you can break free from constraints that stifle your potential and stunt your growth. However, you must be careful. In my Timeless trilogy, Timeless, Timeless Deja Vu, and Timeless Trinity, I take my readers on a journey from light to dark and back to light. I have made every mistake a person can possibly make in exploring the paranormal but have lived to tell the tale. We all have a piece of the puzzle and it is our mission to share that with others in any way that we can.
My paranormal stories are true, and they did happen to me, but I do not consider myself something special. We must work together to discover the truth. My pursuit of the truth has led me to believe that the quantum world, the spirit world, and the alien world, are all one.
I like writing in the early morning hours before anyone is awake. That is when I am usually most creative. I can also write when the hustle and bustle of the house begins, but that noisy time is better for editing. For inspiration I often take meditative walks (2.5 to 4.5 miles). During those “spirit walks” I practice my mediumship, pray, and listen to audio books or music.
I am a historian by trade, so non-fiction is my bread and butter. I have written seven history books on conventional topics such as foreign policy, women leaders, the Vietnam War, and a survey textbook. The last four years I have dedicated to writing about my paranormal experiences just recently completing my trilogy. The Timeless trilogy has documented 89 true paranormal stories including telepathy, telekinesis, mediumship, ghosts, demons, angels, aliens, and UFOs.
I guess you could call me a paranormal lightning rod. Some of these experiences have been horrifying, some amusing, some enlightening, and others just plain weird. What I have learned from the experience of writing my paranormal books is that we must be authentic and not confine ourselves to certain genres and thereby stunt our development as human beings and as writers.
Readers appreciate candor, honesty, humility, and risk taking. Writers are not oysters. You must explore your dark side in order to appreciate the light. Be the light, my friends!
