Review: Free Your Pen – Eloquent & Profound!

A big thank you to Claudia Durr for the first review of Free Your Pen – so glad to hear you’re enjoying the book! Here’s the review:

★★★★★ Eloquent, Simply profound! July 26, 2017

All I can say is WOW! This is exactly what I needed! The simple yet profound advice the author has to offer resonates with the essence of my being. I haven’t finished the book yet and don’t think I ever will. If this were in paper back vs. Kindle I could picture the softly worn and creased pages 20 yrs from now.

Thankfully, the book is available in paperback! Get your copy here and remember to leave your own review…

The Year of the Rooster – Wake Up!

Welcome to the Year of the Rooster and the Fire Bird! This is an excellent post by Lisa Erickson on the symbolism of the coming year and what we can expect. It’s already hotting up out there! Be prepared to walk the razor’s edge between extremes…

A rooster crows only when it sees the light. Put him in the dark and he’ll never crow. I have seen the light and I’m crowing. – Muhammad Ali

The Year of the Rooster is almost upon us, or the Fire Bird in the Tibetan tradition. Within Chinese astrology, the Year of the Rooster begins January 28th, while this year the Tibetan New Year (Losar) begins February 27th. Not all astrologers in either tradition use the Rooster as this year’s symbolic animal – several look to other birds, including mythical ones such as the Chinese Feng Huang, the Tibetan and Indian Garuda, or the western Phoenix. I’ve drawn upon all of these symbols within my annual intuitive riff on this year’s energies. I hope you find it enjoyable and helpful.


Right now, somewhere on earth a rooster is crowing, announcing first light. Chickens are found on every continent but Antarctica…

Chapter 7: Thumbprint of God

In this final extract from ‘Addled: Adventures of a Reluctant Mystic’ Zoe celebrates Christmas with her friends and receives an unexpected gift. But when her guard is down, the presence circling in the darkness makes its move…

Adventures of a Reluctant Mystic

Fragmented images flashed and swirled about me, none of them lasting long enough to decipher. It was the tail end of a convoluted dream that had confused me even while I was having it, and I wanted to wake up and get back to reliable, linear reality. At last, I struggled into consciousness and lay with my eyes squeezed shut. I wanted to be awake, but didn’t want to get up. The weather had been frigid lately, and I knew once I emerged from the duvet, bits of me would start to freeze. The acidic tang of coffee hit my nose and made me think I was lying on the sofa downstairs. Disoriented, I opened my eyes and saw an envelope with my name on it leaning against a steaming mug on the floor beside the futon. I frowned at it, utterly baffled, until I remembered it was Christmas Day.

Chapter 6: False Pretences

Christmas arrives in ‘Addled: Adventures of a Reluctant Mystic’ and Zoe is ambushed by a psychiatrist with a hidden agenda and unusual facial furniture. Can she keep it together and convince him that she’s not crazy?

Adventures of a Reluctant Mystic

The lights had been up since October but it was only with the Big Day looming, that the mania set in. Everybody was getting stressed. I’d already had three desperate calls from panicked clients freaking out over poultry or puddings or oversized trees.

Adventures of a Reluctant Mystic

I was walking into Heaton, my backpack heavy on my shoulders, when my mobile rang. I knew it was Danny without looking and braced myself for the onslaught. Reality had penetrated the fug in his head and he wasn’t happy.

‘I’m not abandoning you, Dan. You’re not a child.’
