About the Book

Annalia envisioned her life as paradise. Everything was heavenly until three furies stormed onto her lane, center stage. They nettled her and got under her skin. Ruled by monsters and fear, the girl's life was shrouded in darkness.

Who has not walked in Annalia's shoes? All children of life, regardless of age, encounter beastly characters and thorny obstacles. Listening to the spiritual guide who whispered wisdom of the ages, Annalia learned lessons to break free from dark night and move into a brighter day. Do you know the role thoughts, emotions, and free will play in conquering life's demons? Annalia does. Are you able to translate universal signs that pop up giving direction along the way? Do you know how personal resources might be used to weed a beastly mess from life's plot? How they might uproot a dream? Annalia learned how by mastering divine magic. Can your spirit soar aligned with its Star Code even when gravity-worshippers attempt to weigh it down? Can you shine your HeartLight to illuminate the way out of a nightmare? Annalia can.

This self-health novel provides life lessons taught by Lazy Lapis, the Dream Magician. Return with Annalia and her guide to The Forest of Perpetual Night that lies on the far edge of Tabankhu. Master life's craft and turn in an inspired performance daily. Learn to recognize horrible happenings-black holes, shifting landscapes, bottomless abysses, physical afflictions, sinkholes of despair and dead-end mazes- for what they are, life tests, nothing more or less. Refuse to wander through life as a Sleepy Noggin. When you show that you know what you know, you will be cast as a star in a living dream. If a young girl can star in life, you can, too. (A reader's guide is included as an appendix.)
