Welcome to my Imaginary World
The Girl Who Swallowed a Star is a fantasy adventure about a young girl, who meets a mysterious boy, and bit by bit the forest near her house unveils its magic. Maria fights for her life and the life of the boy in a forest battle. But in the midst of a great quest to help her new friend return home, she also finds her intuition and some understanding and acceptance of her parents' impending divorce.
I wrote this book with Paulo Coelho's The Pilgrim and The Alchemist in mind. It's a spiritual adventure for children, if you will. As a long-time devotee of Paramahansa Yogananda, I've benefitted immensely from his teachings about intuition or inner guidance and how it navigates us through life's twists and turns and deepens our relationship with Spirit. For 30 years, I shared these ideas with any clients who were interested, and now with my imagination and my own intuition, I've created a chapter book about inner wisdom for children aged 8-12.
If our children learn the power of their own inner guidance, what a blessing it would be for the world and for them in making good life decisions and fostering a joyful, rich inner life!
Whether you want to help a child through a divorce or deepen their understanding of inner wisdom, or even if your child, niece or grandchild just wants to read a fun, positive book, I hope you share The Girl Who Swallowed a Star with them.
