I’ve written a knockout book to expose a cover-up.

What was the secret of the ‘Mary Ann’ all-female convict ship in the Third Fleet to Australia?

Only a ghost could have known about it.

Because the truth was covered up and the evidence destroyed.

Then 200 years later a paranormal experience, quite a few in fact, fell into my lap and off I went on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Across 5 countries.

I was in Australia and the cover-up occurred in England.

Involving the Prince of Wales.

And his mistress.

They were married in a secret ceremony.

Officially it never happened.

I’m not so sure.

Back then a liaison between a Protestant and a Catholic was dynamite.

At the time the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots were causing fear amongst the population of London.

This happened in London.

I was in Australia.

The Prince of Wales and a Catholic widow.

That would have been dynamite too.

Officially it never happened.

My paranormal clues said otherwise.

And so, sensing an amazing story, I went for it.

I responded to the clues.

Which led me to Regency England, New Zealand and, yes, right back home to Australia.

I uncovered an amazing story

The writer’s magazine Writer’s Digest called it a “blockbuster”.

And more.

You can read the awesome reviews HERE.

Or buy my blockbuster 230 page book HERE.

It’s a “fun and entertaining” book says another reviewer..

See for yourself.

Love and Peace.

Where Is Your Soul Mate?

What if you were a Romeo waiting for your Juliet, a Guinevere waiting for your Lancelot, to show up in this life?

What if a past life ended tragically, in a death perhaps, untimely separation or unfortunate distance, leaving emotions and experiences unfinished or unexpressed.

How tragic.

What if we’ve returned to complete what was started last time with an unhappy parting?

What if, what if?

Are we going to blow it by settling for someone we’ve asked to be our partner too soon?

What if?

How do we know?

We don’t, except that we can go with the flow, by trusting that our interests are being taken care of.

Not so if we’re trying to force things.

What if there is a priority of the thoughts and influences in our lives depending the intensity and the degree to which each is important.

I’ve always thought that the recent talk of the Law of Attraction is only relevant as far as other influences which are in our mental make-up at the time are more important.

For example, are there aspects of our Destiny or our Karma that might override any forcing we set up as our expectation of the Law of Attraction.

And choices.

We’re free to make choices all the time.

That’s free will.

But how do we know whether our choices are, in the long run, in our best interests?

How do we know without a crystal ball?

Seeing into the future.

Are our chances of winning the lottery diminished by aspects to the contrary in our Karma or our Destiny or simply in our need to win the lottery over other considerations.

Are we always simply in the queue?

It’s a mix, like a cake.

Priorities are surely determined more by their importance on a spiritual level than our own sense of importance.

Much of which we may not understand.

It’s not either/or.

Trust.

In the Tao it’s known as “wu wei”, not forcing things.

For the past 30 years I’ve lived by not forcing things.

I had no choice.

Read about it in my book ‘Man Steps Off Planet’ HERE.

Take care.

Banished To The Colonies For Knowing Too Much. Why?

“At Rokeby, where the road branches off from Skillion Hill, through Glebe Farm on its way to Cambridge,” wrote Mabel Hookey in a small limited edition book published over 40 years ago, “there is an old cottage, once the home of Dr and Mrs Desailly.

“It was built in 1826, by William Hance and was one of the early landmarks of the locality.

“There was a certain cachet about the Desaillys, and a hint of strangeness as of exotic birds blown from their course by adverse winds.

“It was whispered that Dr Desailly’s English practice had been at the court of George IV, and that his beautiful wife had been a Lady in Waiting to Queen Caroline.

“What were they doing in this antipodean outpost? They held no official position, nor were they of the free settlers who were beginning to trickle into the colony.

“They did not swell the ranks of those unfortunates [convicts] who had left their country for their country’s good, nor were they political exiles.

“A vessel under special charter brought them to Van Diemen’s Land [Tasmania], and they always had plenty of money, derived from a mysterious pension, paid regularly and with great secrecy.”

I know the Desailly’s secret and I’ve written a fun and entertaining and revealing book about it.

It’s got everything it needs to be a blockbuster: romance, history, the paranormal, says Writer’s Digest.

Was Granny Really a Ghost on a Mission?

WAS GRANNY REALLY A GHOST ON A MISSION?

Did she live 200 years ago as a wife of the Prince of Wales?

Was her life covered up in the interests of the politics of the day?

And of saving the Prince of Wales’ neck?

At a time of serious anti-Catholic sentiment, of the Gordon riots, even the memory of her deceased late husband who died in the riots, was the cover-up in the greater interests of the country, the Parliament . . . and the throne?

Has she returned to state her case for justice?

Read chapters ‘Dr Desailly’s Secret’ and ‘Florence & The Ghost’ and you may wonder about what really happened 200 years ago.

THE PRINCE’S SECRET MARRIAGE.

A time when the Prince of Wales and the wife of a secret marriage, were living in dangerous times.

In a letter to the Prince of Wales, Whig politician and leader of the opposition Charles James Fox: “warned that her situation as well as that of the Prince would be perilous if they went through a ceremony of marriage.”

But they did.

And not only that.

WAS THERE A CHILD?

At first she refused all suggestion of marriage.

Then she changed her mind.

Could it be that she was having his child?

And was this child legitimate?

In the chapter ‘The Secret Marriage’ I present the evidence that there was a child.

There were rumours on the couple’s two summers in Brighton.

“It is said she is with child,” wrote a Mrs Talbot.

Could this have been the secret reason for their extended holidays in the seaside resort of Brighton?

Was this a good reason for the distraction of the building of the Royal Pavilion there.

The Pope declared the secret marriage valid.

WHERE ARE THE CHILDREN THEN?

At the time all of the evidence was destroyed.

This hasn’t stopped speculation as to whether there were children and, more to the point, where are they?

What happened to them.

I very much doubt, however, if anyone found the evidence I have offered in my book.

This was the time of the historic First Fleets to Australia of mostly convicts sent to start a new colony in the antipodes.

What a perfect opportunity to disappear an unwanted child and an embarrassment to the Prince of Wales.

And then there was the enigmatic Commander of the Tall Ship the . . . wait. I tell all in the chapter ‘The Lieutenant Without a Past’.

Was he also one of the mysterious missing children who sailed for the colonies in a famous ship and who played a big part at some of the big events in early Australian and New Zealand history?
