In December 2003, I moved away from the city with my husband, to a home he built for us on a lakefront property. Although I still worked in the city as Office Administrator for an international company, moving outside the city provided a peaceful and quiet lifestyle.
To make our lives more tranquil, we got rid of our television leaving more quality time spent together. During the evenings, I read books to my husband or we read separately on our own.
Without the distraction of television and other outside noises, the notion of writing a book began to fill my mind. As I pondered the idea, I found myself formulating a storyline with scenes and characters.
One evening, after a full and stressful day at work, I opened my laptop computer and started writing my first novel, Root Of Deceit. As if I'd finally opened a gift that remained wrapped for many years, I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed it.
After completing chapter one, I read it to my husband. His enthusiasm and eagerness to hear more helped motivate me to continue. Having just an hour or two each evening to work on my book, the task was long and arduous. I stuck with it though, still reading each finished chapter to Gary even when long spaces of time elapsed between chapters.
At the end of July in 2010, I left my position in the city allowing me to work on my book full time. By November 2011, my book Root Of Deceit was completed.
After researching and contacting various publishers, publishing my book digitally appealed to me most because I owned the rights to my book and I chose the way it was published. Nearly everyone love technology in its variety of forms such as computers, iphones, e-readers, etc., so it seemed the most logical way to get my book on the market.
The story behind my new ebook, Cosmic Rain...
One morning during the month of November 2011, I awoke with a story in my heart. Right away, I recognized that it spilled forth by divine intention.
Following my inner guidance, I put aside another partially written book to begin the new one, Cosmic Rain. While writing, the words flowed with ease and continued that way to the end. Although Cosmic Rain is categorized as a fictional fantasy story, it expresses important knowledge that I know as true through intuition, research, and my own personal experiences. By turning that knowledge into a conversational piece of work, the story has the ability to empower the reader to comprehend and maybe experience the concepts described within the book.

Such a wonderful book, I could not put it down. I felt myself in the book not just reading it. The video on cosmic rain made me want the book so much. I could relate to much of the book, I kept thinking what a wonderful movie this would be, if done well. I so much believe in other beings and worlds and the spirits that move about us all the time. Valerie is a wonderful person and gifted writer, she has much to show and tell us. More books please, Valerie

Superb read! I was gripped by the story from the very beginning. I could easily put myself into the experiences of each of the characters. I enjoyed the tidbits that were left here and there throughout the story which may compel the reader to do further research of their own: where the characters discuss real issues we face in our daily lives (i.e. chemtrails, food preservatives, etc.). Most importantly, I liked the message of love, life, and the idea of a greater existence in the universe.

"Just finished Valerie's Cosmic Rain, an amazing read,I couldn't put it down! Valerie captured the very essence of the inner desires of the soul, she captures the positives and negatives that are experienced by so many in life. I felt like I was part of the story and that it was a real experience. I so related to her main character Rain as I'm sure many will. Her story transported me back to some of my childhood experiences and left me feeling happy and glowing inside and out. Valerie is a truly gifted author and I look forward to reading all her published works to come. Thank you Valerie for your amazing gift of writing."
