Author Bio
In Changed Forever, I shared with you some interesting things about the number thirteen. There will be more in book two. But, do you really believe there are energy patterns like that which affect our lives? Let me tell you a few things about thirteen in my life. My name has thirteen letters. I was born in the sign of Scorpio, which is represented in tarot by Key 13. I got my first job at the age of thirteen. I worked there until I graduated from high school. I had one other job after that. Then at the age of twenty-six, thirteen years after I got my first job, I switched to a good paying job which I kept for many years. There are other significant thirteens, but this is a short bio so I’ll skip to the present. On July 13, 2012, a Friday the thirteenth, a freak accident at work broke a bone in my hand. It was bad and needed surgery. I decided it wasn’t a problem but an opportunity; time to prepare myself, and get The Dreams of Sara Knight ready for publication. Exactly one year later, on July 13, I received the edited copy of my manuscript back from my editor. I was ready to go. So, here we are in 2013 and my life course is changing again as I publish my first novel. And by the way, as I do this, I have been studying with a western mystery school for 13 years. So, you decide, is life more about patterns of energy than we normally consider? It certainly is. We are vital energy beings first, and live in an electrical universe. Someday I’ll write the whole story and share it with you.

I hope you like the front cover. Isn’t that beautiful artwork? It’s called, The Connection. To me, it portrays the same thing as the yin-yang symbol, but in a modern, artistic, fractalized kind of way. Look at the front cover again. See how the two archetypal powers are intertwined in a beautiful swirling embrace; locked in an eternal dance with each other.
The alchemists often referred to these two divine principles as gold and silver, or the sun and moon. They were always pursuing the secret of secrets, the perfect relationship between them. One who succeeded in their art was born anew. See the new offspring being born in the picture?
This picture also depicts the inter-connectedness between the spiritual realm and the natural world. It even looks like penetration into the dream world. Can you see it?
Now, after you’ve read the book, look at it again. See if your knowledge and appreciation for this dynamic, rhythmic interchange hasn’t become more ecstatic. Beautiful art can touch the heart, so can beautiful thinking. Hopefully, The Dreams of Sara Knight will inspire beautiful thinking

Excerpt:
It was getting rather late, 10:45 to be exact. The girls were crashed out on the couch, exhausted after a long day of celebrating. Friends and family had been coming and going all day to be with them on their birthday. Sure, it was great fun, but now they were glad to just let go and relax. Kara let out a mighty yawn with a fully open jaw, as if she was a roaring lioness. Sara, unable to help herself, succumbed to the urge and responded with a powerful yawn of her own. They smiled meekly at each other as they realized what just happened.
“Hey! What’s all that noise going on in here?” their father asked, as he entered the room and witnessed what just happened.
“Hey Dad, why are yawns contagious?” Sara asked, barely moving.
“Wow Sara, here we go again with the synchronicity! I just looked that up, and now you’re asking me about it. It’s like I looked it up just so I could answer your question.”
“Really?”
Both girls sat up with renewed energy. They knew that life itself was often giving hints of its mysterious ways to those who paid attention. They were on high alert now, expecting something significant to reveal itself.
“That’s right! And I think you may find this pretty interesting. You see, they’ve done a lot of research trying to figure that out. Believe it or not, researchers think the reason we yawn is different from the reason someone yawns after us. First, they learned that they could get many people to yawn by showing them videos of yawning and other various things. Then they took it to the next level by trying to influence the rate in which people responded. By placing hot and cold compresses on people’s heads, they found that people yawned less when using the cold one. From that, they decided that we yawn to cool the brain. So, is that what you girls were doing, cooling off your brains?”
Sara laughed “I thought I was yawning because I’m tired.”
“That’s what I thought, too. Science is very good at collecting data, but sometimes their conclusions are questionable. If that were true, wouldn’t we see professional athletes yawning when they were really hot? We see them pouring water on their heads, but I don’t think I ever saw them yawning to cool off their brains.
“Anyway, to answer your question, they call contagious yawns a primal subconscious response. It’s kind of like the way we hold our breath when we see someone in trouble, or the way we smile when we see someone having fun. We can’t help ourselves. This seems to make sense. It’s something from our very ancient past. We connect in ways that are very subtle and mysterious, but very real, nonetheless.”

Quotes:

“The search is what everyone would undertake if he were not stuck in the everydayness of his own life. To be aware of the possibilities of the search is to be onto something.”-Walker Percy

“The aim of my teaching is enlightenment, awakening from the dream state of separateness into the reality of the One. In short, my teaching is focused on realizing what you are.”-Adyashanti

“Creativity comes from awakening and directing men’s higher nature, which originates in the primal depths of the universe and are appointed by Heaven.”-I Ching
