I am a 54 year old woman, married since 1981, with 3 grown up children, and 1 grandchild. I am a Chartered Management Accountant turned writer. I had health challenges starting from my mid-30s up to mid-40s. I was not sick but I was definitely not healthy. No solutions from my doctors, just pills and more pills. So I researched for myself between 2006 and 2007 and came to the conclusion that food makes us well and food makes us sick depending on our choices. In January 2008 I embarked on a 4 month experiment to change the way I ate. All 8 symptoms disappeared. As a bonus I lost weight. That is when I decided to write my first book Top Secrets of Health. Because I have seen people struggling with weight, I have decided to write my latest book Lose Weight Naturally and Look Younger. It's all from my personal experiences.
Since I was 24 years old, I searched for answers to life's mysteries. I read a lot of books. I was searching but I had no idea what I was searching for. Later I had life challenges that "experts" could not help me with. I dug deep within myself and came up with my own answers. That is when it finally came together for me that all power is within, not out there. That is when I wrote the books Behold! The Kingdom of God is Within and the book Journey to the Kingdom in 2012. These are living books. I keep updating them as I find more information.
I am the type of person who will not accept the commonly held beliefs. Just because 3 billion people believe in something does not mean I have to. I cannot conform. I prefer to find out for myself what it is all about and form my own knowledge based on my own learning and my own conclusions. I don't mind if only 2000 people out of 7 billion people agree with me.

Smashwords Interview

What inspired your first book?
My health experiences inspired my first book Top Secrets of Health, Weight Loss, Rejuvenation, Increased Energy Levels the Natural Way. I grew up healthy and I was healthy up to my mid-thirties. Then I started to have recurring problems like urinary tract infection, swollen ankles, constipation, slow digestion, blocked nose, low energy, excess weight, etc. I was never sick. I was just unhealthy. My doctor just gave me medicine but could never solve my problems. After 10 years of such irritating problems, I started to search for answers. Thanks to the internet I had access to a lot of information. I finally tested my findings by changing what I eat. Immediately my symptoms disappeared. My weight went down. I had so much energy that I started to put together all the information that I had accumulated over the previous few years in the evening after work. Voila! I had my first book. I have since revised the book a few times, but the basic message remains: take control of your health!
How did you come up with the series Master of Your Destiny?
All my adult life I have been searching for truth about myself and the Truth about God. I always suspected that there was more than meets the eye. In order to do this, I had to stay out of all orthodox religions while I read everything I could find on human spirituality and religion. I found out what it means to be the image and child of God. I finally understood that most of humanity's problems are due to our ignorance about who and what we are. I learned what the Bible is all about. I finally understood what it is that Jesus was trying to teach us. I became aware that despite our religious differences, we are all trying to connect with God. I finally understood that as children and images of God, we were created perfect, and if we could turn our minds away from the earthly issues towards Godly issues, we can all become masters of our destiny. Therefore I named my book series Master of Your Destiny.

Master Your Destiny
Master Your Destiny is a series of books that show the way towards becoming master of your destiny. It starts with Behold! The Kingdom of God is Within, a book which explains Christ Consciousness, the Truth that sets you free. It explains the nature of God, the nature of man, and how the two are related. Journey to the Kingdom teaches the reader how to get rid of the ego in order to attain Christ Consciousness. The ego consists of everything that we learn beginning from childhood, and it breeds fear, hate, hurts, greed, anger, selfishness, grudges, envy and everything that is negative. It leads only to unhappiness, and the constant pursuit of material things in the hope to find happiness. Journey to The Kingdom teaches how to transcend all that and live only in unconditional love, where love for self, love for others, compassion, peace of mind, forgiveness and hope reign. That new mindset is the Kingdom of God, or Christ Consciousness.

The book explains that we were created as images of God, and masters of our destiny, yet we are unaware of this. Various spiritual masters came to teach us that the Kingdom of God is within us. All ancient texts written after each master, point out the same truth. If the Kingdom is within, we must claim our right as heirs to it, tap into the power within, and become masters of our destiny.
