It was over four years ago while writing a few ideas in my journal one evening, suddenly, as of its own, a novel began to emerge. I was merely illustrating a simple point when the point turned into an allegory and then the allegory turned into someone's complex dream. It was ALIVE!
Prior to this, I had no thought or intention of ever writing a novel. And now as I complete the first book while continuing to edit the remaining three titles in the series, I now find the fifth writing itself. As its scribe, it seems I can hardly do otherwise if only to discover for all of us what may happen next in this surreal adventure.
Mystery, adventure, philosophy, spirituality and romance; its all there! It's hard to know how to categorize these narratives and so I just call them fantasies with a message; in fact many messages on many levels.
I anticipate the first book, The Summit, will be available for purchase by January of next year. At this point it is going through its final external review. You may also send me a message with your comments directly to my email address to my Facebook site. See CONTACT
The first book of the Elysium's Passage series involves a British philosopher from London named Dr James Philips, who, in this first narrative has a near fatal fall while climbing towards the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes.
While his body remains in a coma, he awakens in an altered state of consciousness before encountering two mysterious beings on the summit with very different perspectives on the nature of reality. Before returning to his body in London, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding of life's meaning and purpose, far beyond anything he previously believed, or could believe.
An engaging and surreal adventure with intimations of romance exploring the most important questions regarding the Passage that leads beyond this life towards our ultimate destiny.
The Plains of Elysium is described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiacal afterlife reserved for heroes.
The Summit is not just about a hero or a mountain expedition, but a fall into the mysterium of the unknown universe. I trust you will join our ascent as we venture 'further up and further in' Elysium's Passage.
The Summit is the first of five narratives of an ongoing story. The following will all be released over the next few years.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens. Carl Jung
