Dr. Skye Stephenson is a writer, global educator and crystal healer who has traveled the length and width of the Americas for three decades meeting and gathering stories of hope and inspiration from social activists, shamans, and regular folks.
She was inspired to write "The Spirits of Jade" when she found herself in a similar situation as the story’s main character: unemployed and unsure of her future. And the story began to pour through Skye shortly after she found her own mother’s dead body on the winter solstice night of 2006. Never expecting to write a novel, she was helped along by her ancestors, the power of jade, and her desire to make a small contribution towards envisioning a future more in tune with Mother Earth.
"The Spirits of Jade" joins Skye's other writings, which include a full-length book about South American culture, two poetry books, numerous academic articles as well as two monthly newspaper columns.
Skye received a doctorate in International Relations and Latin American Studies from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and was one of the first students at Wellesley College to graduate with a Latin American Studies major.
She has lived more than a decade and a half internationally, including twelve years in Chile. Currently, she makes her home in southern New Hampshire, where she enjoys a fulfilling life that includes two adult children, a wonderful partner, a job in international education, a small crystal healing practice, a transformational travel business, of course, writing her next story.
