Spiritual journey spawns a book
ONE YEAR since being catapulted into the public arena, Maryborough’s resident ghost whisperer Kerry Williams is set to release her first book.
For the Love of Heaven, a personal account of Ms Williams’ paranormal experiences in the Heritage City, will hit the shelves hot off the printers next month.
Ms Williams, who was “overwhelmed” by the response to an article about her adventures featured in the Chronicle this time last year, said it had been a long, hard road to getting her words into print.
“It took me all year to finish,” she said. “I wrote, proofed and published the whole lot myself.
“It was challenging but I’m very, very excited about it finally being released.”
Ms Williams, who began her spiritual journey in 2004 after the death of her mother, said she had been asked by her spirit guides in December 2008 to document her experiences so she could help “open the public’s eyes”.
“They told me I’d get magnificent photographs and wanted me to publish them to show that there are other realms of life after death.”
She said the spirit world had completely changed the way she lived her life and “after people read my book I hope it will change theirs too”.
Her book would include a sample of some of the photographs she had snapped over the past couple of years on a small digital camera, given to her as a present in 2007.
“They will go in completely untouched. I think some of them will blow people away.”
Ms Williams said some of the frightening encounters she had had with “earthbound spirits from the dark side” in Maryborough over the years, as well as her more positive experiences such as helping earthbound spirits cross over to the light, would feature in the book.
“Before all this happened I would have poo-pooed the idea. But after all my experiences and the pictures I’ve taken, how can you deny it?
“I’ve had so many wonderful experiences and it has completely changed my life.”
Ms Williams said she had ordered 1000 copies of her book and said a number of local book shops would be stocking copies from next month.
“If they sell well, I’ll be ordering more. I’d like to thank everyone who has helped me get here. Everyone has been so lovely to me.”
