  • Talon, Come Fly with Me

    Book 1 of the Talon series.

    Nine year old Matica lives in a remote village on a dry plateau in the Andes of Peru. She moved to Peru when she was five with Australian missionary and schoolteacher parents. Because Matica is trapped in the body of a two year old, her growth handicap has caused her to be rejected by the local people and they would not accept her into their community or allow her to play with the children.

    With patience and a sense of adventure Matica befriends a pair of condors. A strong bond and love develops between them. Matica rescues the egg the condors, Tamo and Tima, are trying to protect from poachers and nurtures it to hatching. The egg hatches on her 10th birthday and she names the new fledging Talon.

    Many adventures unfold, including her finally being accepted into the local community.

    This is the beginning of many incredible adventures with Talon and Matica. It is a story of hope, determination and love.

  • The Awakening

    Born in 1951, Marion has had an extra ordinary life. In a short space of time she has experienced events that have fast-tracked her spiritual understanding and personal growth. She has shared these events with you to show how she coped, with the hope that what she learnt will help you as well.

    However, life had greater plans for Marion and she was set firmly on a path of spiritual discovery, fast-tracked through the tough times, and lessons that taught her there was much more to life than one can consciously see and hear. Her healing abilities and spiritual understanding flourished as her spirit guides taught her how to heal and most importantly, to understand possession and entities and how this is so prevalent yet feared in our society. Marion’s journey is one of enlightenment and awakening.
