Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
This is quite an intense question! At 36 years of age, I believe I went through what some would describe as a 'spiritual awakening', however it felt more like a journey to hell and back! I experienced a series of failures in my life, one after the other which left me feeling sad, lonely and depressed.

Through listening to the messages the universe/God provided to me, I went on a three-day Ayhuascha retreat which was significantly profound. During those three days of intense journeying, the book title and message were given to me which took me on a 3 year journey to complete this work.

A lot of the lessons I went through are contained within the book together with helpful reminders of who we really are. There's also a reminder of the pain and suffering we cause ourselves when we move away from our own innate being.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Whilst I hold some reservations on the advancement of technology in our lives, I really respect the fact that unknown authors can access a platform which allows them to publish their work. Personally I think its a great advancement for us all as the process of writing can be so cathartic, healing and a lot of fun. You're free to authentically express yourself and who you are.

There's none of the fear of receiving tons of rejection letters from publishing houses who are so overwhelmed with submissions that they can't give your work fair attention. Plus there's strong evidence to suggest that some authors who did receive such rejection proved the publishers wrong by selling milions of books! The prospect of this excites me greatly.
