Althia’s Awakening

“Althia’s Awakening” is based on true events in the life of a Montreal fashion model. A spiritually aware girl in a self-centered world, Althia uses her gut instinct and street smarts, along with numerous experiences from her Greek family, to guide her through the darkest pit of self-abuse to the light of universal acceptance. Uncanny clairvoyant talents and a generous heart make her the envy of her “friends” and coworkers. She is a pioneering woman of the New Age!

“Althia’s Awakening” recounts a spiritual awakening that moves through the challenges of sexual desire, drug abuse, family secrets, death, revenge, and mystery. This awakening begins when Althia begins seeing herself as different from her party-going, drug-snorting friends; she is faintly aware of “energies” given off by other people and begins putting this awareness to use. What is this feeling? How does she cope with it and the people around her? Where does it come from? These are the questions she must find answers to.

Through it all, Althia falls in love, rediscovers her connection to a universal God, and learns to love herself for who she is.

“Althia’s Awakening” is the first volume in a trilogy that weaves together a story within the glamorous and often tragic world of fashion models. It leads readers on a moral and spiritual adventure that will keep them spellbound.(less)

About Chrissy

I'm a Montreal, Greek-Canadian teacher & author. Sometimes I'm all of these, sometimes I'm none of these. Music is my life. Art is my life. Reading is my life. My children are my life. My husband is my life. I have self-published three books: Althia's Awakening, Althia's Calling and Althia's Journey along with Zaharoula Sarakinis; based on her life as a spiritualist. My manuscript was recently accepted by Muse it Up Publishing for Fall 2014; a paranormal romance with a love triangle. My wordpress blog explores some vampire romance, my recent obsession, and of course an abundance of poetry for the soul. Writing is a journey that never ends! View all posts by Chrissy

Amor Vincit Omnia

We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers And sitting by desolate streams; World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world for ever, it seems. ~Arthur O'Shaughnessy
