- Is your name really Isis?
Yes. I was in a car accident in 1980 and opened to more consciousness. I felt as if I were a different person, and then had to change my life dramatically (just ask my daughters!). I legally changed my name in 1987, because people were already calling me Isis. I found it interesting that people were so psychic. I had dreams and flashbacks of being Isis, but they were not the same as the myth about Isis and Osiris.
- How long did it take to write these Chronicles?
I started writing about these memories in the early 90’s, but they were scary to me. It wasn’t time for that kind of information to come through, at least through me! I had more lessons to learn before I could open to the bigger story. It took about a year to write each (and then there is editing!).
- Why call it Awakening Earth Chronicles?
The question I asked of my “Self” before writing this trilogy was: What does the world need to turn away from violence?
- Do you believe yourself to be the Isis from your books, either the modern-day version or the mythological one?
I started writing these books with the feeling that I was that Isis from another time, but when I got to writing about President Dunning, I felt as if I also had to become her. After writing this story, I sense it may have been a story that needed telling, and I opened to doing so.
- Your books were inspired by your dreams. From where do you believe these dreams came?
I believe consciousness is huge, and we can open to more than our current life. I often felt the information streaming in the top of my head and saw the story unfold in pictures in my head as I wrote. I also felt shocked at where the story went. I think the dreams were that same energy continuing to enter as I slept.
- Are the books complete works of fiction, or do you believe the events in them, or something similar, will happen?
They are fiction, as there are no scientific facts to corroborate. I think we, as the humans on this planet, will need something compelling to unite us in love energy. We’ve already done the war/fear one too many times.
- Have you ever experienced the flashing, golden energy and vision of past lives with another person as you describe in the books?
I have not experienced the flashing. I did train to read past lives and have experienced seeing many other people’s past lives.
- What writers do you like to read?
I have read many or most books written by these authors (links to author’s sites on Amazon): Steve Berry, Catherine Coulter, James Rollins, Robin Cook, James Patterson. These two women authors had a very strong affect on me, and I’ve read many of their books: Zoe Ferraris (Finding Nouf), Ceanne DeRohan (Right Use of Will Series). I usually write reviews on Amazon of books I’ve enjoyed.
Some other books I’ve really enjoyed: Cairo Codex by Linda Lampert, Safe With Me by Amy Hatvany, Missing Persons by Claire O’Donahue, The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan, The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro, The Secret of Nightingale Palace by Dana Sachs, Black Fridays by Michael Sears, Power Play by Ben Bova, Ashford Affair by Laura Willig. I love fiction, because so many truths can be intimated that couldn’t or wouldn’t be made into statistical books and would be boring (or at least not hold my attention) if they were!
- How did you get into writing?
I have written numerous rituals and led many classes that had to have a manual of sorts, but Awakening Earth Chronicles is my first work of fiction.
