Recommended Reading


I’ve been an avid reader since a very young age. By age 7 I had read many books well beyond my grade level, and already had my own full bookcase that was taller than me!

All this reading influenced my life significantly. For example, at age 6 during a night of extreme trauma that caused a significant number of dissociative identity splits, my higher self was able to create a detective alter, modeled after the character Nancy Drew in the teen series, whose purpose was to “put the pieces of me back together” – which she did do one day after I was an adult and safe from the abuse!


I consider some books especially noteworthy because of they help they gave me in my earliest healing, long before I sought help for my extreme trauma, abuse and torture background. These books include:

  • Quantum Healing by Deepak Chopra – scientific proof of the connection between thought and reality
  • Many Mansions – biography about Edgar Cayce – explains the Karmic belief system of cause and effect, that everything happens for a reason, and the importance of awareness and compassion
  • Out on a Limb by Shirley MacLaine – higher self-knowing, spirit and out of body experiences
  • What Colour is My Parachute? by Dick Bolles and Focusing by Dr. Eugene Gendlin – guides to discovering and following your dream(s)
  • How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlich – cartoon-style guide to communicating with kids

Over my lifetime, certain authors have affected me profoundly, facilitating the transformation of me and my life with their consistently helpful information.

In the lists below, you’ll find some of my favorite authors whose powerful works can have a positive influence on your life too!
