Why Did You Write a Book?

Interview with Wendy Stokes by Paul Salmon: 
Hi Wendy, Why did you write a book? Wendy explains:

I have been a writer for many years, writing for pleasure, to inform, entertain or transmit a message. In 1999, I undertook a two year, full time course in counselling and psychology for which I wrote a hefty 10,000 word dissertation. It was during my college years that I was perplexed because the terminology of psychology and spirituality were so different. Psychology emphasised self-awareness as a vital part of our personal development, but what do we do when we know who we are and have developed skills to get us to where we want to be? Spirituality offered an understanding that our life in the physical world is only temporary and that we need to prepare for a permanent, eternal life in a more real and truer home.
