Pick of the week

I am honoured that my new release Abigail Cottage has been named Pick of the week by thriller writer Lorrie Struiff

Check it out!!

Abigail Cottage

When Abigail falls in love with Justin she can’t begin to know the world of hurt she is heading into. Gorgeous, kind, rich – he’s the man we all dream to meet. BUT, all is not what it seems because Justin is a true demon from hell, disguised as a mortal being. He wants her and will do, kill or maim anyone who tries to stop him. Namely Shaun the real hero, who wants Abigail more! So what does a mortal man do against a demon? He enlists the help of a gypsy of course. But not any old gypsy. Rosa knows Justin very well and has the powers of the spirit world on her side to fight him. Using crystals as a powerful weapon, the light of the spirit world to lead them, they embark on a battle with the whole of the underworld. Many loved ones will lose their lives. This isn’t a book where everyone survives. In real life, bad things happen. In Abigail Cottage, terrible tragedies occur too. Believe... not every story can have a happy ending.

Crystal Power

Recently I interviewed Lorrie Struiff about her book Gypsy Crystal.

It's about a homicide detective who has pure Roma blood. She wears a mystical crystal amulet that gives her the power to see in a dead victim’s eyes the last image he/she saw. The story is filled with gypsy customs and lore and it takes you on a wild ride into the mystical world of the paranormal with thrills and chills. The full review is on this page. Just click on her book.

Now my question is, who believes in the power of crystals for real? I’m a Crystal Therapist, so I have a biased opinion of course lol But would you use a crystal to combat stress or illness? I believe it comes down to faith. Not the bible quoting, god is all powerful faith (mind you it does help sometimes!!) no, the type of faith that lets you believe in the unbelievable. Not many of us can do that. As human beings, it is natural to question the validity of the things we can’t see/feel/hear.

This crystal cave is one of the largest known crystals caves on earth. These crystals take millions of years to form. What do they do for the earth? Can we really believe that they are in animate objects without a life force?

Have you had an experience with any particular crystal? Would you use one? I'd like to know how you feel/think about them.


  1. I used to sleep with an amethyst crystal my mom and dad gave me from one of their various trips out west. I kept it there as decoration, but it seemed to help me relax. I also used to wear an amethyst crystal point on a chain. I should do that again, methinks :-)

  2. Amethyst combined with rose quartz acts like a sleeping pill. If you place them under your pillow, they will induce sleep. So you were right to use it, Arianna. Crystal energy is very helpful when worn around the neck. Your crystal point would be very good for spirit connections too.

  3. I love the premise of Gypsy Crystal. I haven't used crystals but they do intrigue me. The last Indiana Jones movie had some interesting concepts about crystals and ancient power.

  4. Interesting article, Margaret. I've enjoyed making Rosarys out of rose quartz and several other crystals and stones. I never really consider the properties of crystal in this sense. I'll have to think about this more. Thanks for the info.
