I’ve spent quite a bit of time mulling over what I wanted to say on my ‘About’ page and could never really come to a definitive decision. I wanted to ensure that I included what I consider to be relevant information, whilst also retaining some mystery, or perhaps I mean anonymity. Although, how one can do that and still have a flourishing blog, together with a (hoped for) successful writing career is still a puzzle to me. If you know the answer, feel free to let me know.
After a fairly long dawdling period I came to the conclusion, that I would ‘borrow’ an idea from a fellow blogger (with permission, of course) and do a little Q & A about myself. Then maybe, it won’t be too boring for you, or too revealing for me, so here goes……
Where do I currently reside? – Perth, Western Australia but I spent several years living in London. I was originally born in the UK, my family emigrated to Australia, and I’ve frequently travelled back and forth.
Where would I prefer to live? – Give me at least 6 months living in Canada preferably Vancouver and I will be a very happy bunny. I do miss London drastically, though.
How long have I had psychic abilities, and how did they appear? – Very unexpectedly 33 years ago, certainly unasked for. There I was; going along minding my own business, and next thing I know I’m (a) psychic…..there’ll be more on this subject in a future post
What type of inherent talents do I have? – Clairvoyance, mediumistic and psychometric abilities, clairaudience, clairsentience and some claircognizance. I’m also a qualified past-life healer and I’m trained in soul retrieval.
What else have I tried, or studied? – Tarot cards, spirit rescue work, crystal therapy, colour therapy, runes, ribbon, sand and flower reading, Chakra Meditation, and I have also attempted direct voice and sat in several séances.
Have I had any frightening experiences? – Yes, approximately 5 of them, and 2 were very scary but as it’s over the life of my abilities, it’s not a bad ratio.
What interesting events have occurred because of my abilities? – I was very fortunate to be allowed to test my psychometric skills at the British Museum. I was given access to their Roman Coins & Egyptian artefact collections……a truly amazing experience. I was also interviewed for a UK magazine, which really increased my client base at the time.
Am I working psychically at the moment? – Not professionally as I’m having a sabbatical, and changing direction. Privately, yes the abilities are still there.
What’s the next stage for me within the paranormal field? – I would love to write for children about the paranormal.
Am I religious? – No, I follow my own philosophy, part spiritual, part pantheist and part Wiccan, but I totally believe in everyone’s unalienable right to their own beliefs.
What orthodox jobs have I held in the past? – Credit Manager, Software tester, Debt Recovery, Assistant New Business Manager at Harrods (yes, that one) and not forgetting banking.
What have I written so far? – I have self-published 3 spiritually based, self-help ebooks, and currently have signed a publishing option agreement with Blue Mountain Arts. I have 3 novels in the process, one being a children’s book, and I am also looking at non-fiction for children. In my orthodox life, I’ve created a manual letter suite, (credit- based) for a previous employer.
What would I like to write? – Fiction, Non-fiction, fo children, How-to’s and general articles. There’s not really an ultimate list.
What do I read? – I even like non-fiction but if I want to lose myself, romantic thrillers.
Do I have any food preferences? – I am a lacto-ova vegetarian and have been for about 30 years. I like my animals on-the-hoof or the wing etc….It crosses my mind often, to give up eggs as I really hate how ‘wiggly’ the white albumin can get when not fully cooked.
What pets would I love to have? – Dogs, for definite, but also a lizard, and maybe an Axolotl, or a bunny, or a chinchilla, or a rat/mouse, you name it I’d like it.
What do I dislike? – Unnecessary rudeness, dishonesty and most green vegetables, great vegetarian huh?
What hobbies do I have? – Reading (naturally), animals (all of them), music (classic Motown, soul, R & B, northern soul etc…), learning new things, walking in green places near water and finally, the gym.
I think that’s about it for me, I’ve given you an insight into who I am without divulging all and sundry.
