More About the Author

Hello -- and thanks for checking out my Amazon Author page. What would you like to know? I'll have to guess, so let me share answers to some of the most common questions I get asked:

1. When did you write your first book, and why?

How You Can Win Competitions was typed out on my dining room table following success with this UK-based hobby and was accepted by the first publishing house I sent it to. It came out in 1988 and was pivotal in leading me into a new career as a U.K. TV presenter on cable, a pan-European satellite channel, and the BBC.

2. What has been your most successful book to date?

The Book of Chakra Healing was republished in 2013 after selling copies that run to six figures in close to 20 countries worldwide. I originally wrote it back in 1999 so I'm thrilled that, 14 years later, this comprehensive work on chakras is still seen as a valuable resource. The book I wrote prior to that for the same publishing house, The Book of Crystal Healing, has also sold in six figures and been as well received internationally. Maybe the publishers will think about revamping that at some point too?

3. Who are your favorite authors?

Oh, so many! I love reading and devour a thriller every 3-4 days. My favorite authors in that genre include Lawrence Block, Harlan Coben and Jonathan Kellerman (I just love their regular series -- Block's John Keller and Matthew Scudder; Coben's glorious Myron Bolitar and his fascinating friend, "Win"; and Kellerman's Alex Delaware). I'm also a big fan of Veronica Roth's and Suzanne Collins' dystopian novels. On the nonfiction side, my favorites include Frans Johansson, Malcolm Gladwell, Trevor Blake, and Daniel Pink.

4. What are you writing now?

Apart from finishing up two nonfiction business books as consulting co-author with clients, my agent is shopping around the proposal for my latest book -- quite different from anything I've written before. Here's a sneak peek:

"On September 25th 2012, while checking Facebook, Liz Alexander finds a message from a man whose picture affects her profoundly. Three months later she learns that it's all part of an Internet dating scam. Only temporarily fazed by this, Liz creates her own fake persona--a "digilante" whose goal is both to turn the tables on her deceiver and to find the real man in the picture. Sadly, he turns out to be just as much of a fictionalized character as the scammer, when Liz finally meets him in California.

In her newest book, Fake Bait: Adventures with Factitious Foreigners and Home Grown Dating Deceivers, Liz combines her skills of storyteller and investigative reporter to address the question why an attractive, smart (three psychology degrees, no less!), and business savvy woman got duped not once, but twice. Fake Bait offers a humorous memoir that's blended with self-help and cultural commentary, within a story arc that is as exciting as any thriller."

Format: Paperback
Quite alot of us are not `in touch` with our inner sense. This part of us which infallibly knows what is best for us. When we be are `out of touch` with our inner sense - the result is disharmony, which starts on the subtle levels of the body -"the energy body". Then later if this is not addressed, it manifests as illness or dis-ease in the physical body. I think this book is very good for explaining the laws relating to the energy body (subtle body) and it`s system of energy vortices, "The Chakra System". I work with the Chakra System alot with clients in balancing mind, body and spirit. This book is a great addition to anyones`s collection as it offers ways of re-tuning and balancing the Chakras and bringing a healing harmony in your energy body which you can learn to do on your own on lots of levels. The colour illustrations are wonderful too! Liz has included a range of techniques and help in this book for this purpose. Many of them I use regularly in my practice. I particularly enjoyed her use of crystals, essential oils, ritual and visualisation as well to bring the book right up to date with Chakra Healing.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must have for any person interested in the chakra system. It is unique in that it presents archetypes connected to each chakra which summarize the positive and negative personal traits associated with each. It is very practical and simple to check through them and spot your own and others' imbalances. It also incorporates practical techniques which can be used to help correct them which include meditations, crystals, exercises and the use of color. I find that I am lending and recommending this one out all the time. It was recomended to me! It is also visually very appealing with large colorful illustrations which make it easy to check back time and time again.

This is one of those glossy 'pretty' books. You do get a good summary of information on the chakras. But the information presented just does not appear to be very deep. If you don't know much about chakras then this is a good buy. If you know the names of the chakras and their colors, keep looking.

What a gem of a book! It is visually stunning and very easy to read and understand. I'm new to the chakra system, and this book is truly helping me to understand. I just started working with the meditations and exercises and am having great success with them.

This is a gorgeous book. The illustrations and information are plentiful. The color coded pages make for wonderful visual referencing and take you directly to what chakra material you are looking for. The meditations/affirmations are also an extra bonus to this stellar book. A gem of book!

I enjoy visual things and this book is beautiful visually. It touches on alot, but doesn't necessarily go into depth on each chakra. Never the less, even though I have been studying and working with the chakra system for some time now, I enjoy using this book and would recommend it, especially to the beginning student of the chakra system. It is clearly written, easy to understand and follow and the meditations are great.

I found this book to be very user-friendly as well as thought provoking. Each page is inviting and motivates you to delve deeper within yourself. My favourites are the positive affirmations and the stunning visuals of relevant gemstones.

I don't see myself becoming bored with this book any time soon!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very informative work. I found it extremely useful in my practice, and I can easily recommend it even to others who may not be qualified massage therapists. I appreciated the way each chakra was dealt with in a consecutive manner, and then everything tied together. Although I feel this book is intended for the education of laymen, it is beneficial to all.
