When I was married, I wrote and edited my husband's newsletter for our business and enjoyed it.
After my divorce, I was stirred to write a guest column for the local newspaper and it was published. This inspired me to join a writers' group. I won their international writing contest with my story, "All Time Victim",which is on my website, and I was hooked. I flew to New York to receive my poetry award. There I heard about the Santa Barbara Writers Conference and attended the next seven years. I was a judge several years for the contests of the Northwest Writers Conference.
- How long does it take you to write this book?
"Paradigm Busters, Reveal the Real You," has taken 25 years with three major rewrites to be ready for publication. My other books have come together quite quickly while still working on "Paradigm Busters." My books seem to write themselves, often.
- What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
I do not keep a rigid schedule to write as I also see counseling clients, give classes, and do volunteer work besides having a significant other in my life. I put on my calendar my appointments I have. I then write in the open spaces of time available throughout the day, weekend or evenings. It seems to work out.
- What brought you to write this book?
In meditation, about 25 years ago, Archangel Michael told me that I would write a book to bring spiritual answers to the mainstream population.
- How you become a published author? Any inspiration?
I had begun writing poetry from the pain of my abusive life and how I was changing my life. I did not think of publishing anything until I took a writing class in my community. I was sharing my work in class. The teacher was also a publisher. One night, I got up enough courage after class to ask her if she would publish my poetry book, "Roses Have Thorns, Encouragement on evolving from pain to joy." She agreed on the spot and said it belonged in every counsellor'swaiting rooms. It is available on Amazon.com or through my website angelicasgifts.com
do you get your information or ideas for your books?
I write from my own experience of overcoming nine addictions, a childhood and marriage of domestic violence and rape, PTSD, depression, mental illness, Bipolar Disorder, sexual abuse, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and more. This brought me also into understanding holistic health and spirituality that supported my recoveries.
Because I am a medium, I am often given information to write through spirit messages. This is the basis for my many articles on the internet. In addition, this is how my second paperback, "The Real Meaning of 2012, A New Paradigm Bringing Heaven to Earth" came about. I was told to write my information from channelling that day into a book.
When the media has information regarding certain topics, I often write to inform people of a different understanding than often presented. People need to hear the facts. I have the ability to see beyond the façade of many issues. I have written over a hundred articles for an online newspaper, Ground Report and several blogs.
- When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I was sixty years old when my first book was published. I started writing when I was in my fifties. My early writing was not for books. It was mostly articles, columnist in two newspapers (one was international), E-books, and materials for teaching metaphysical classes.
- What do you like to do when you're not writing
I enjoy painting portraits of people, pets, and your angels, seeing plays, golfing, being a therapist, meditation, psychic/medium, volunteer work, speaking, I am an avid reader.
- How many books have you written? Which is your favourite?
I have written eightbooks that are on Amazon.com including my coming one, "Paradigm Busters, Reveal the Real You". . I am included in three anthologies about success, too. They are "The Book of Success", "Success Uncovered", and "Walking Your Life".
They are all my children, and to pick one is tough. "Paradigm Busters, Reveal the Real You" is the quintessential and comprehensive book now available with the details for "how to" achieve a higher awareness and move into inner peace. It is the guide to find heaven on earth. It is the one Archangel Michael said I would write so long ago.
- What's next for you? What are you working on now?
I always have several projects on the back burner. The next books will be a series called, "Channelling from Higher Realms", from my channelings as a medium. The channelings are available on Youtube now. They will be published for reading the information. There will be around four or five volumes from my beginning work to the present. They will be sequential and build on each other.
I also plan a Volume 2 of "Roses Have Thorns" for another poetry book. It will be a sequential book from the first one showing my progress into a happier life.
