What is your favorite thing about being a writer?
It is not easy to single out one thing but here is one that is high on my list. I am a firm believer in survival of souls after the death of bodies and reincarnation of souls, so all of my fiction and non-fiction books contain reincarnation events or information which I hope will encourage readers to do some investigation of their own on these topics. I have been amazed as well as pleased by the number of individuals who have contacted me to share their personal experiences.
What genre(s) do you write?
Inspirational, Paranormal, Reincarnation.
Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Definitely a pantser. I do not think I have had one book end up where I intended it to in the beginning before I got rolling.
How long have you been a writer?
I dabbled at it a little earlier but I was first published in 2010.
What other careers have you had?
I am a retired high school teacher.
Do you write under more than one name? Why?
I write under my real name as I am proud of what I write about.
Are any of your characters based on real people or events?
I do get ideas from other people concerning past lives for my fictional characters and I have also snuck a number of my previous incarnations into my novels.
How would you describe yourself if you were “speed dating” your readers?
I am not as crazy as you might think!
What’s something fans would find fascinating about you?
I receive messages from the other side including advice on what to add to my stories.
How do your family and/or friends feel about your books or writing venture in general?
Many of them think along the same lines as I do so most love my stories.
How do you come up with the titles?
The titles seem to find me or become obvious during the story.
When not writing, how do you relax?
I have done thousands of Sudoku puzzles.
Let's have some fun...
Which food could you not live without?
Apples. They keep the Doctor away!
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you travel?
I would love to visit the sites of the early lost civilizations like Machu Picchu, the pyramids, Stonehenge, etc.
Please share with us your future projects and upcoming releases.
My next release, scheduled for January of 2016 by 5PP, is Abandoned Soul, Book V of The Dacque Chronicles. I am working on two non-fiction books, like my already published by 5PP, The Soul of Jesus, using the readings of the legendary American mystic, Edgar Cayce. One is an account of the past lives of over 500 people who experienced incarnations in Atlantis. The second one is currently titled Understanding Your Soul Group and it explains why groups of souls incarnate together over and over to work on past Karmic connections.

The Soul of Jesus is my most recently published book.
As part of His preparations for the long-prophesied birth of our Savior, God selected a devout group of primarily Jewish Essenes to oversee this monumental undertaking. The Soul of Jesus delves into numerous details surrounding these readily-available but little-known preparations which preceded the birth of Jesus, and then carries on to share delightful snippets concerning the birth and life of Jesus before the commencing of His Ministry, Jesus’ Healings and other Miracles, His Apostles, relatives, friends and the group of seventy disciples, the Crucifixion and Resurrection, His activities after the Resurrection, and Jesus’ Ascension, that are not recorded in the Scriptures.
The surprises do not stop there. The Soul of Jesus saves the block-buster news until the very end – the soul of Jesus had a number of historical incarnations before its final incarnation, commencing many centuries back in time as the soul of Adam in the Garden of Eden.
Excerpt from The Soul of Jesus.
12. Then the entity aided, so that all was in readiness, when in the evening - just before the sun in all its glory of the Palestine hills gave forth almost into the voice of nature, proclaiming the heralding of a new hope, a new birth to the earth, and the glorifying of man's hope in God - the specter of His Star in the evening sky brought awe and wonder to all that beheld.
13. And the entity, being anxious, gazed with wondering awe at that UNUSUAL experience to all, and wept with JOY of those unfoldments within self, of the emotions that made for the expectancy of glory surpassing what had been told of all the glories of her peoples in the days of old. 14. There the entity felt what may be very close akin to the experiences in self in the present - that a new light, a new vision, a new experience was BEING BORN in every atom of its being. 15. Then when it was known to the entity that the den, the cave, the stable had been occupied - Oh, the rush, Oh, the desire to be off to see what that experience might be, held the very being of the entity!
16. And as soon as its duties were cleared about the home, as the space was very near, the entity started. But as the entity walked into the open upon that Eve, the brightness of His Star came nearer and nearer. And the entity heard, even as the Shepherds, ‘PEACE on earth GOOD WILL to men.’ 17. There came again that awe, that feeling of a new creation, of a new experience, as the entity among those - only with the closer attendant of the Mother - hastened; while all the rabble, all the jeers of a world were stopped!
18. As it hastened to the quarters where the Mother lay, in all that awe of a new experience, and the light as from His Star filled the place, the entity then first beheld the BABE. That was the crowning experience, until the plea that she - too - might hold that glorious child in her arms also! 19. Then as this became a reality, there were those feelings, those experiences - O that the world might know the beauty, the joy, the glory of the experiences of His Life in their own hearts and minds and beings! 20. There the entity also saw the shepherds gather, there the entity also saw on the morrow the Wise Men - with their ladened beasts or camels, with all their praise for those who had kept the faith, in making and preserving, in keeping and helping those that were in need, that were alone - yet GOD was with them! 21. There were those experiences of the presence as well as that expressed in those strange tongues to the entity, though the entity knew and thought and felt and experienced the reverence and awe as shown by all. [1152-3]
It is times like this where I like to pause and reflect, and try to imagine how Mrs.1152 must have felt as she sat there and listened to the in-trance Edgar Cayce describe her close and personal association with Glory.

War. Devotion. Deceit. Death. How long can a heart hold on before it breaks? Most women would carry on with their lives after being thrust into widowhood, but not Charlotte Adamsland. Upon learning that her husband, Captain Sanderson Redding, was killed in a botched escape from a Confederate prison in Illinois, she clings to his promise to return to her no matter what, and quickly heads north through a war-ravaged country with only her faith in God and her beloved horse to bring her Sanderson home - one way or another. After the war is over and Sanderson is home, life is good ... until the Army comes knocking with a bloody ultimatum where Sanderson's freedom hangs in tandem with a man's life while Charlotte is left home, shattered with worry and left to handle a rash of rabies that threatens the entire countryside -- Sanderson included. Can a love already tested to the limit survive on the trail to California as the peace Sanderson is trying to bridge between the Army and the Snake River Indians begins to fall apart and more importantly, when when all of their dreams come true, will Sanderson and Charlotte still have what started it all â their everlasting love?
Dacque LaRose, a retired high school teacher, is your proverbial Good Samaritan. After the unfortunate passing of his wife, a visit from his wifeâs spirit and soul, in Soul Awakening, Book I of The Dacque Chronicles, propels Dacqueâs entire future in a new direction. Like most of us, he had never given much thought to survival of souls after the death of our bodies, but the visit from the spirit of his beloved caused him to commence a thorough investigation into survival of souls and their reincarnation in the future. Dacqueâs education did not stop there. With his new-found understanding of souls and his natural Good Samaritan instincts, the Heavenly Powers enlisted his services to assist them in guiding lost souls and misguided individuals in their intended direction.
In Soul Rescue, Book II of The Dacque Chronicles, Dacque is directed by his Heavenly Guides to locate the earthbound spirit of a child and assist it to finally pass over to join its awaiting family members. Dacque eventually discovers that this assignment was not just an assignment, and the earthbound spirit was a close associate of his in a previous lifetime.
In Soul Mind, Book III of The Dacque Chronicles, Dacque is enlisted by the spirit of a recently murdered acquaintance to assist in bringing the murderer to justice. This is no simple task as the victim met his demise from a vicious blow to the back of his head and did not see his murderer. The real fun comes in trying to convince the local police to allow the spirit and soul of the murder victim to assist in their investigation of the murder.
Soul Connections, Book IV of The Dacque Chronicles, is a continuation of Book III where individuals associated with the murder victim are educated in the relationship of Karma and the reincarnation of groups of souls together in more than one lifetime. Have you ever wondered how total strangers can be thrown together and eventually become devoted friends or family members? It is all tied into Karma and the reincarnation of groups of souls together in a number of lifetimes until their Karmic connections are fulfilled. Curious? Let Dacque LaRose be your guide.
