What are your five favorite books, and why?
Conversations With God particularly books 1 & 3 by Neale Donald Walsch - some amazing insights and thought-provoking ideas that really encourage you to form your own personal spiritual belief system. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne because it brought the message of the law of attraction and manifestation to the masses. The Celestine Prophecy - much like The Secret news of this book spread like wildfire through word of mouth only - and before the internet was really used. I love how this books brought people together, people were talking about it with strangers on the London underground where mostly everyone sits in their own little worlds! Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kyosaki because it empowers ordinary people to make a difference to their finances. How To Become A Money Magnet because it talks about money from a spiritual perspective and about how money in good hands can do good things.

What's the story behind your latest book?
The power In Your Hands came about after I responded to an online forum where someone had asked what a lightworker was. I gave a short concise answer and then couldn't sleep. For the rest of the night the words went round my head until I caved at 3am and started writing, four hours later I had the structure and a lot of the content - hand writtten!
