Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
New Royal secrets uncovered. Many have CLAIMED TO KNOW. "You have discerned an amazing story." - Writer's Digest Right from the start there’s a paranormal mystery. Why did the ‘Mary Ann’, the only all-female convict ship among the Third Fleet of convicts to Australia, leave England in 1791 in such a hurry before the rest of the fleet and “under strange circumstances”? Who was the Commander of the ‘Lady Nelson’ and what was his true shocking identity? Have I found the unsuspected unknown missing children of George IV? Even legitimate children. What happened to them? Maybe I know. "You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever." - Steve Jobs. Have I found a new ethical way to live? Trusting the Universe and the Universe will have your back? It’s Newton’s Third Law of Motion, for every action in one direction there is an equal and opposite reaction in the other direction. It’s metaphysics. I’ve written a true paranormal story of trusting the Universe. The experience is paranormal, the principle is metaphysical. Is this how we can change the world, trusting the Universe? If we show respect for Mother Earth, as the Australian Aborigine believes, Mother Earth will always give us back all that we need. I believe that too. It’s an idea that’s 60,000 years old or more. It's a Law of Physics which are universal and can be applied anywhere to anyone, any time, anywhere, under any circumstances.
