"Alexandra Holzer was born into a world filled with aristocrats, scientists, witches, warlocks and "things that go bump in the night." She takes the reader on an exciting, eccentric and unique journey from childhood to present time, which reads like something out of a Harry Potter novel. Hang on to your broomstick..." -- Merryn Jose - Writer, Editor and Publisher of Merlian News.com
"Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a real haunted house or perhaps be brought up in an environment where the paranormal is accepted as the normal? In many ways Alexandra Holzer was. Being the daughter of the famous ghost hunter and highly revered and respected parapsychologist, Dr. Hans Holzer, one might almost expect Alexandra to have had some unusual experiences at home. Her mother Catherine, a countess of the Russian Royal Family, Buxhoeveden, a highly talented artist, must surely contribute to the genes that would make Alexandra Holzer sensitive to other worldliness.
This is a fabulous book that gives the reader, not just an insight into her upbringing, but a unique opportunity through the eyes of this talented word smith, to experience the world of the unknown to most people. It is clear that getting impressions of the afterlife became very much something that she came to consider as normal. Indeed, in the book, she speaks of being given a message from one member of her family telling her she needed to get back into writing because she would be successful and extremely well-known for her efforts if she did. Majoring in fashion, fine art and design advertising and highly respected in her field, the book seems to suggest a new-found appreciation of literature and the paranormal.
If you really do want to know what it is like to have second sight and be brought up in the home of a master of other worldliness, this is a 'must read' book for you, and of such importance to the searcher for such knowledge that recommendations for literature prizes should also be considered by the publishers." -- Philip Solomon- Psychic Medium to the Stars.
