Author Description: Essentially a teacher, author Sheryl Lynn Christian's strengths are compassion, clarity, openness, and creativity. Coming from a place of kindness and love, she listens, empathizes, and understands the issue, and she uses her intuitive skills to creatively seek and help people find their solution. This practice builds trust and mutual respect, has served many, and will remain her approach. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Psychology with a research emphasis on the cognitive processes of creative expression.

Since 1989, Sheryl Lynn Christian continues to be a lifetime scholar and "miracle worker" of A Course In Miracles (ACIM) - a psycho-spiritual guide to inner peace. For twenty-three years, she has felt that her Divinely True Purpose is to heal the world. Opening to her higher self, the inner voice, and the angelic guides who are and have been with her always, she began her journey long ago by placing her trust in God, and she asked to be led where she needed to go. By doing all things with loving intent and starting with some of the same self-love practice techniques described in this book, she achieved a true sense of wholeness and peace.

In 1990, she became a Certified Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming Therapy® and a facilitator of Time Line Therapy™. She is a Past Life Coach and Medium certified by clairvoyant, numerologist, Eastern Astrologer, and Ayurvedic healer, Prince Raja Harindra Singh, Ph.D. As an intuitive and vibrational healer, Sheryl has worked with spiritual Astrologist and vibrational healer, Eduardo J. Caldera, and she is an instructor of Western Astrology and was trained by Astrologer, Diane Ronngren.

As spirit guided her, for over fifteen years Sheryl worked in the human services field in several capacities; as a volunteer and a trainer for the C.A.S.A. program, as a Certified Mental Health Crisis Para-Professional, and for twelve years she was a Caseworker in Child Welfare. As a Child Protection Caseworker, she spent the last five years as a certified Court Ordered supervised visitation specialist. She is regarded as a Court expert witness in the areas of child welfare and protection, supervised visitation, and on the effects of domestic violence and sexual abuse on children. She is also a certified instructor for Art Innovators - an art enrichment program for children and adults.

Sheryl Lynn Christian was raised in Los Angeles. She is the mother of four beautiful and loving children who are now grown. Most of her psycho-spiritual training was attended in Los Angeles. She and her children moved from California to rural Arkansas in 1992. In Arkansas, she met "Prince" Harindra Singh, Ph.D. and studied under him. "Prince" directed her to become an author and to adopt a pen name to write under. As an author and an artist, she has published several books under her pen name, primarily romantic historical fiction, and she illustrates the covers as well as creates images of her characters. Most of her ideas have come from her past-life experiences, dreams, fantasies, and visions. She is a mentor for Classic Insights, a spiritual college with an emphasis on the arts, and she is also a member of the Spiritual Emergencies Group - Council of Imhotep and Ma'at founded by Dr. Mitchell Gibson. Ms. Christian is in the process of launching an online psycho-spiritual university -

While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn't yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.

When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren't enrolled, you can't attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.

Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It's a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?

Author Description: Uvi Poznansky is a California-based author, poet and artist.

She earned her B. A. in Architecture and Town Planning from the Technion in Haifa, Israel. During her studies and in the years immediately following her graduation, she practiced with an innovative Architectural firm, taking a major part in the large-scale project, 'Home for the Soldier'; a controversial design that sparked fierce public debate.

At the age of 25 Uvi moved to Troy, N.Y. with her husband and two children. Before long, she received a Fellowship grant and a Teaching Assistantship from the Architecture department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where she guided teams in a variety of design projects; and where she earned her M.A. in Architecture. Then, taking a sharp turn in her education, she earned her M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Michigan.

During the years she spent in advancing her career--first as an architect, and later as a software engineer, software team leader, software manager and a software consultant (with an emphasis on user interface for medical instruments devices)--she wrote and painted constantly, and exhibited in Israel and California. In addition, she taught art appreciation classes. Her versatile body of work can be seen online at It includes bronze and ceramic sculptures, oil and watercolor paintings, charcoal, pen and pencil drawings, and mixed media.

Uvi published two children books, Jess and Wiggle and Now I Am Paper. For each one of these books, she created an animation video (see Author Videos at the bottom of this page.) She won great acclaim for her novel, Apart From Love, and for her poetry book, Home (in tribute to her father. Her collection of dark tales, Twisted, and her Historical Fiction book, A Favorite Son, are both new age, biblically inspired books. Rise to Power (volume I) and A Peek at Bathsheba (volume II) of her trilogy The David Chronicles have just been published.

A Peek at Bathsheba - The David Chronicles Book 2
Against the backdrop of wars, raging within the land and without, David is growing into the mantle of leadership. Between his anointment as a tribal king and his anointment as the king of all of Israel, he uses wisdom, cunning, and his own understanding of the forces of history, aiming for high ideals: stopping the bloodshed, uniting the nation, and bringing about healing and peace.

But then, having reached his peak, David falters. He makes a serious error that threatens to undo his political success, and cost him not only the adoration of his people—but also the sense of being sustained by a divine power. That error is the most torrid tale of passion ever told: his deliciously forbidden love for Bathsheba, followed by his attempt to cover up the ensuing scandal by sending her husband—who serves him faithfully in his army—to his death.

This is volume II of the trilogy The David Chronicles, told candidly by the king himself. David uses modern language, indicating that this is no fairytale. Rather, it is a story that is happening here and now. Listen to his voice as he undergoes a profound change, realizing the magnitude of his sin, and the curse looming over his entire future.

A Favorite Son
This story is a present-day twist on the biblical story of Jacob and his mother Rebecca plotting together against the elderly father Isaac, who is lying on his deathbed, in order to get their hands on the inheritance, and on the power in the family. This is no old fairy tale. Its power is here and now, in each one of us.

Listening to Yankle telling his take on events, we understand the bitter rivalry between him and his brother. We become intimately engaged with every detail of the plot, and every shade of emotion in these flawed, yet fascinating characters. He yearns to become his father’s favorite son, seeing only one way open to him, to get that which he wants: deceit

“What if my father would touch me,” asks Yankle. In planning his deception, it is not love for his father, nor respect for his age that drives his hesitation—rather, it is the fear to be found out.

And so—covering his arm with the hide of a kid, pretending to be that which he is not—he is now ready for the last moment he is going to have with his father.

Rise to Power - The David Chronicles Book 1
Here is the story of David as you have never heard it before: from the king himself, telling the unofficial version, the one he never allowed his court scribes to recount. In his mind, history is written to praise the victorious—but at the last stretch of his illustrious life, he feels an irresistible urge to tell the truth. In the first volume, Rise to Power, David gives you a fascinating account of his early years, culminating with a tribal coronation. Rooted in ancient lore, his is a surprisingly modern memoir.

In an era of cruelty, when destroying the enemy is deemed a sacred directive, the slayer of Goliath finds a way to become larger than life. His search for a path to power leads him in ways that are, at times, scandalous. Notorious for his contradictions, David is seen by others as a gifted court entertainer, a successful captain in Saul’s army, a cunning fugitive, a traitor leading a gang of felons, and a ruthless raider of neighboring towns who leaves no witnesses behind.

How does he see himself, during this first phase of his life? With his hands stained with blood, can he find an inner balance between conflicting drives: his ambition for the crown, his determination to survive the conflict with Saul, and his longing for purity, for a touch of the divine, as expressed so lyrically in his psalms and music?

Apart from Love
Secrets, passion, betrayal...

Coming back to his childhood home after years of absence, Ben is unprepared for the secret, which is now revealed to him: his mother, Natasha, who used to be a brilliant pianist, is losing herself to early-onset Alzheimer's, which turns the way her mind works into a riddle. His father has remarried, and his new wife, Anita, looks remarkably similar to Natasha--only much younger. In this state of being isolated, being apart from love, how will Ben react when it is so tempting to resort to blame and guilt? "In our family, forgiveness is something you pray for, something you yearn to receive--but so seldom do you give it to others."

Behind his father's back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him. These tapes, with his eloquent speech and her slang, reveal the story from two opposite viewpoints.

What emerges in this family is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness.

~ PRIDE AND PREJUDICE Contemporary Variation Novella ~

Jane Austen’s beloved characters return in this novella, a contemporary variation on Pride and Prejudice, one of the most popular novels in English literature. This is Book One in the Mister Darcy Series of five books by Barbara Silkstone. Each book can and does stand alone as a separate novella and yet each allows for the relationship between Darcy and Lizzie to unfold in a natural, unhurried way.

Doctor Lizzie Bennet, struggling against her conservative English countryside upbringing, determines to prove her worth as a dog psychologist. Nothing will deter her from her career until she meets the uppity and oh-so mysterious Londoner, Mister Darcy. His on-again, off-again flirtatious manner, and his pompous putdowns challenge Lizzie’s short temper. When Mister Darcy hires her to train his lovable basset hounds for an important foxhunt, Lizzie accepts the task despite knowing next to nothing about the sport and harboring an intense fear of horses.

Two of the villains Austen fans love to boo and hiss arrive to torment Lizzie: Caroline Bingley, in hot pursuit of Mister Darcy does all she can to discredit and humiliate Lizzie. Mister Darcy’s old nemesis, George Wickham, stalks the Bennet family.
