Steven J. Shupe


The author, after having been an active spiritual seeker and counselor the past twenty-five years, is generally a quiet nomad living in mountain retreat or shoreline solitude amidst pleasant climes.

On the practical side, Shupe has seen many fleeting endeavors and roles pass through his life, ranging from being an environmental engineer, to a lawyer, mediator, and finally, a water resource consultant described in 1989 by the L.A. Times as “one of the prominent forces for peaceful evolution in Western water policies.”

Shupe laid off his employees in that year for a temporary sabbatical break which quickly became a permanent reality shift filled with spirit guides, psychic encounters, and a path of discovery guided by amazing grace. While composing his spiritual autobiography in late 2000 along the Ganges River, Shupe ran out of steam on the true story, so fashioned a plunge into amnesia to enhance the path of exploration, as recounted in the initial volume of The Nyxall Chronicles, entitled “The Now or Never”.

Towards the end of the conjured amnesia process, the author realized that he was actually caught in a deeper, lifelong cycle of forgetfulness—one on the soul level wherein Spirit had fallen into earthly embodiment without any memory of where it had come from or why it is here. Consequently, Shupe began pursuing an intensive inner journey of discovery primarily involving Himalayan experiences, alternative spiritual practices, and additional writing to jar loose hidden clues and forgotten secrets via creative imagination.

“A Mindgame to Remembrance” charts his subsequent exploits through northern India, juxtaposed with scenes from a humorous heaven which is struggling to guide a stubborn Earth to its ultimate destiny. A third Nyxall Chronicle, “The ‘I’ of the Storm” reflects further explorations into alternative realms of existence, the nature of consciousness, and Mingo and Marla's excellent adventure into planetary upheaval.

In 2015, Shupe traveled to the Peruvian Andes to complete the plunge into the mystery, both in practice and in writing, as reflected in the final Chronicle, “Beyond Illusion”. He welcomes written contact at from fellow explorers of this multidimensional universe and its punch lines to freedom.

Please note that the four books in The Nyxall Chronicles, although interrelated, can be read and enjoyed in any sequence, since they each contain unique storylines, messages, and resolution. ["Beyond Illusion" is temporarily unavailable due to editing for the 2020 edition.]
