A Few Stops On My Book Tour (Live and Virtual)

 

 

Hey Everyone,

I am set to release my new memoir on April 16th. The memoir, titled Angels in the OR: What Dying Taught Me About Healing, Survival, and Transformation marks my first collaboration with publisher Post Hill Press, and will be distributed by Simon & Schuster.

I was an ordinary college student at the University of Texas when a serious car accident completely changed my life forever. While in surgery, I had a near-death experience that altered my faith and outlook on the world around me. This is my story of that moment and my journey through this culture as a young woman with new spiritual insights and challenges.

I look forward to meeting you across the country and in Europe.

Angels in the OR Launches on April 16, 2019!

Thank you everyone for your support on my journey.  I have several more interviews with near-death experiencers available on my YouTube Channel.

Also, Angels in the OR, which covers the story of my near-death experience and life after that moment, will launch on April 16, 2019— 25 years after that massive car accident I experienced in Austin, Texas during my senior year of college.  The near-death experience during spinal surgery at Brackenridge Hospital altered my life forever,  and I have never lost the memory of the light or the vast, unconditional love from the other side.  I have never forgotten the insights communicated to me.

The river that I saw during my near-death experience was strikingly similar to the river that flows outside of TCC’s beautiful Trinity River Campus, and I have spent the last ten years teaching English and Creative Writing here.  I’ve loved this job and all the wonderful students, staff, and faculty members that I have met over the years.  Many of our building’s beautiful classrooms and balconies overlook the Trinity River.

Last week, I shared some advance copies with people on our campus, and I can’t wait to hear your feedback on the book.  It is almost every English major’s dream to have a published book in print.  I have loved books since I learned to read the year before Kindergarten, and part of the reason I worked to accomplish this goal was to inspire my students to believe that they can achieve their dreams.

I hope you will pre-order  Angels in the OR  or purchase it on April 16th when it launches.  I am enjoying the feedback I’ve already received and can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

Survivor Memoirs—Angels in the OR

1ineducator

Thank you everyone who pre-ordered my book Angels in the OR! For over five weeks, my book stayed a #1 new release in the category of near-death experiences, survivor memoirs, and educator biographies.

I am particularly pleased that my book was a #1 new release in survivor memoirs because Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt was one of my models, and his book is categorized as a survivor memoir. McCourt worked as an English teacher like me, and his journey touched so many of us who have worked as teachers.

When Angels in the OR launches on April 16th, I would love it if the book reached a wide audience. One of my aims is to make near-death experiences more mainstream. Angels in the OR examines the spiritual and human journey in honest, straight-forward ways and offers healing perspectives to all too common tragedies that intersect many lives.

A near-death experience can happen to anyone—an atheist, an agnostic, someone of any religious background, a college student, a child, a doctor, someone in the military, a mechanic, a millionaire, a minister, etc. Making near-death experiences more mainstream was also my hope when I spoke about my near-death experience on The Dr. Oz Show in mid February.

One of the greatest joys of teaching and writing has been the opportunity to connect with others. I want to connect with those of you who pre-ordered the book. On March 14th at 7 p.m. Central time, I will go live on Facebook to give you intuitive answers to some of your questions in real time.

I would love to answer your questions about angels and how to use this realm more often in your lives. I will also delve into a couple of themes in my book and make this somewhat of an online book tour! Thanks so much for your support!

I would also enjoy answering any questions about near-death experiences. I have interviewed many experiencers on my YouTube channel, and this summer I will also be hosting the Second Annual Online Near-Death Experience Summit.

Follow me on Facebook and YouTube for updates about this event in June.

You can also follow The University of Heaven blog to get updates about The Second Annual Online Near-Death Experience Summit featuring Dr. Raymond Moody, Dr. Jeffrey Long, Dr, Eben Alexander, Karen Newell, Nancy Rynes, Howard Storm, Lisa Smartt, Lesley Lupo, Paul Perry, and many others. The webpage and sign-up form should be available soon.

To pre-order my book Angels in the OR: What Dying Taught Me About Healing, Survival and Transformation in paperback or e-book from Barnes & Noble click here.

To order the book from Amazon click here.

Thank you so much for your interest and support.  My continued hope is to bring more healing and greater participation with the light into the lives of others.

Angels in the OR: What Dying Taught Me About Healing, Survival, and Transformation–The Pre-Order Link is Available

Hello Everyone!

I’m so excited to let you know that my publisher has the pre-order link available for my memoir.  I greatly appreciate your support on this journey, and I am so grateful for all the connections that I have made these past couple of years.  The journey is always more important than the destination, and you are a big part of my journey.  Without you, I would not have had the energy to do this work and complete this book. Thank you for all your comments, questions, emails, and advice.

If you pre-order the book, please save a screenshot.  I will be offering discounts on readings, and many promotional opportunities for anyone who pre-orders Angels in the OR.

I have many goals with this book. I want to make near-death experiences more mainstream.  Also, I want to honor other public school teachers and professors through this book.  I also hope to bring healing to those who have experienced any type of trauma.  It is my belief that healing is always possible, and the intelligence and love from the other side makes this healing all the more probable.  Many blessings to each of you!

If you prefer to order through Barnes & Noble, here is that link. If you would like to order through Amazon, here is the link.  The Kindle and Nook versions are also available for pre-order.  Audible has purchased the rights as well.  I’m not sure when the audible version will be available.

This summer, I am going to visit to as many cities as possible, so I might see you on my book tour.  I will list those cities and dates soon!  I can’t wait to meet you!

Angels in the OR: What Dying Taught Me About Healing, Survival, and Transformation

ANGELS IN THE OR: WHAT DYING TAUGHT ME ABOUT HEALING, SURVIVAL, AND TRANSFORMATION is available for pre-order. I am excited to meet people across the country and the world who are interested in stories from the other side and how the light of divinity works in our lives for healing and transformation.

If there is anything I have learned on this journey it is that the connections with others is the real beauty of writing a book.  Love is all that matters in the end.  Though we may not be perfect at executing from a place of love at all times, love is all that we take with us and all that remains.  We learn, we grow, and we give more love to ourselves and this world.

Please follow my YouTube channel to keep up with my interviews and videos about timely themes in my up-coming book.
