This is a very interesting title, because although I created it, I truly have no idea how the book came to be. I sat down at the computer one day and everything seemed to flow. Thom and Rachael told me their story.
Some of you may know that as I type, I constantly ask my Inner Guides all sorts of things. One of the questions I asked was what the name of the slave girl should be. I heard “Alaro.” When I finished writing for the day, I looked up “Alaro” on Google to see if anything was there. Surprisingly, it turned out to be a small town in Nigeria. Wow, that gave me goose bumps!
From then on, the story seemed to take on it’s own rhythm and words. I felt I was simply a channel. Especially when Thom and Rachael saw the house in Boston! It actually gave me goose bumps again!
However, without my forty years or so studying and experiencing many of the realms of metaphysics (above and beyond the physical) I could not have told the story. I have had many of the types of experiences Thom and Rachael had. As most of you know, I am a practicing psychic, I have experienced and done past-life regressions (yes, I had training!), I’ve played oh, so often, in the Void and have had at least two dreaming partners.
I thoroughly enjoyed writing Once, Again. It was fun because I had absolutely NO idea where it was going! NONE! I can’t tell you how many times the characters surprised me. The only thing I knew for sure was that Thom and Rachael had some really intense energy and I love happy endings and they did too!
As an aside, people ask me if the characters are like any I know – or are any of them me -especially the psychic! They’re not. They are them. With the exception of OM (the white cat gracing the cover of Sexy at Sixty) all characters are created from the figments of my imagination or from some other beings channeling their story to me. They know we are a good fit and I will tell the readers what they want them to know – as I did in Once, Again.
