I have wrote a book called 'A Walk On The Other Side' all about  My Near Death Experiences which happened both during my time in the army and after I had left. It  explains all I was shown and what I learnt about the spirit world and gives information about what happens to us once we pass on from this life.

I was in the British Army at the age of nineteen and was held prisoner and raped and beaten many times while I was there. At times I was beaten so badly my heart stopped and I stopped breathing. I could see with my eyes what looked like a silver cord floating from my body to the roof of the room. The first time I remember leaving my body I felt a jerking feeling the type you get when you fall asleep and feel you are falling and jump!. I remember seeing my body on the floor and seeing those that had raped me looking at me and saying "She is dead". I looked up and saw my Gran (who had died when I was a child) who I had loved dearly as a child and she told me to go with her. With a flash of light I was in a lovely little farm cottage and was sitting by a log fire as my Gran told me I was in the world of Spirits. It seemed like I was with my grandma for ages when she told me I must return to earth as it was not my time.

When I returned to my body I could see the men who had beaten me saying "She is now breathing".

I had two more of these experiences and the second time I was in the same room after having no food and water for days. I could hear my heart beating as I saw the same silver cord float from my body. This time after looking down on myself I felt angry and this anger caused things to move about in the room my body lay. Things smashed on the floor and the men in the room were scared and running. My Gran came to me again and told me I didn't deserve to stay there as I would be grounded on the earth if I did not go with her. I followed her again and this time the experience seemed longer and I met more family members who had passed away and pets from childhood. I saw amazing flowers that were bigger than we have on earth and fields of green and blue seas. I also got to see my Mother who was still alive because I wanted to go home and my Gran said I only had to think of her and I would be with her. She could not see me but I could see her.

Again I was told this was not my time to die and was taken back to my body. The men who had beaten me were scared and said "She is a witch".

The third time this happened I was trying to take my own life after escaping these evil people in the army and getting back home, I couldn't cope and wanted to be back with my spirit family. I took pills and again was seeing the silver cord. This time I was taken away for a long time what seemed like hours but was only minutes in earth time. I was told many things about this earth and why we are here and I was told I had to go through this suffering to help others see we survive death and live on. This is the reason I wrote the book to let others know what happened to me and How I lived on after death. I know what I went through was real! because I was able to describe family members who had died when I was young and who I had never seen before and would never have known what they looked like. I was also able to predict the future and things that were going to happen. 

I  was very privileged to be given this Journey to the 'Other Side of Life' and I feel that in all I was shown and taught, that I must go on to live a Spiritual life and help others understand and learn about the 'Other Side of Life'  and about the reason we are all born and what we are here for and what happens once we pass on to Spirit. 

I  was always a Spiritual person as I was brought up in a Family that were all very Spiritual minded and I also had a Mother and Grandmother that were all well known and respected Mediums. So it was not surprising that I always followed such a Spiritual Path. 

This path was opened up to me more after  I had gone through a terrible trauma. Because of all my pain and suffering, I felt that I had a duty to go on and help others and make a difference to the Earth and its people and creatures. 

After my Trauma, a new way of life stood before me and I felt that I had to help others through the various gifts I held. I was born a Natural healer and Psychic,  but through this trauma, I found that these gifts got more and more profound and I knew that I had to use them for the good of all. 

I found that these natural gifts were now ready for me to use through using  Reiki healing,  my counseling work and the various other Spiritual work that I was doing.

There is no escape from the clutches of death, and each of us must face our own demise eventually.  But I feel  I  done much more than that; I has stared death in the face and lived to tell the tale, as the survivor of a near death experience. My life has been a personal battlefield; from My time serving in the British army, to my brave fight against cancer, and in A Walk On The Other Side I relive my story of tragedy, trauma and loss in order to guide and support others, through the darkness and into the light. In an amazing account of My near death experiences, I illuminates a truer reality than that of our everyday consciousness, exploring the reasons for our birth and death as well as revealing the existence of a vibrant living truth beyond the veil. A Walk On The Other Side teaches us how to move through pain and suffering and embrace the end of life and the passing from the mortal state to the spiritual.

I knew that I had been given a glimpse into the Spirit world and what some would term 'Heaven' and I have come to believe that I have a duty to share what I had seen so you can know what this Beautiful place that we all go to was like and felt like. 

I hope that the Book will help others understand a little more about the reason we are all here and what we all share in common. It will help to take out the Taboo of Death and help those who have lost a dear one see that they are safe and well and that from my living proof I can tell you all that we do live on and that no Soul ever dies! 

I was able to make this journey so that I could return to help others and share with you all the knowledge of the very existence of us all and the knowledge that we will all take that 'Walk on the Other Side'.
