Boulder, CO (PRWEB) October 26, 2007
Lily Strange, a clairsentient medium, has released her first novel, Eternal Death I: Lost Beneath the Surface. Ms. Strange claims that she wrote the supernatural thriller in cooperation with a spirit that she befriended in the latter part of 2005.
Ms. Strange comes from a family with strong psychic tendencies. Her maternal great-grandfather saw spirits from his early childhood and knew when people were going to die. Ms. Strange, her mother and her aunt all have precognitive dreams and have all encountered spirits at various times in their lives.
Although Ms. Strange has had contact with spirits throughout her life, it was never her intent to write a book with one. Her original intent was simply to edit a story that she had written thirteen years previously as a metaphor for her deteriorating marriage.
"The original story wasn't very good," Ms. Strange says. "It was a two-dimensional Gothic romance. I believed that I could turn it into something more interesting."
Around August of 2005, Ms. Strange made contact with the spirit of a musician who had committed suicide. She befriended the lonely ghost and he took an interest in her project.
"He was flattered when I wanted to include him in a cameo role in the story," Strange says. "He had some helpful suggestions, and before we knew what had happened, we were writing together. Neither of us had any intention of him being my co-author. But his ideas were very impressive and he was happy to be able to create again. I think it has been a healing experience for both of us."
The result is an intriguing and complex novel that centers around a popular American writer named Terry Bruckham, her fiance Elvin Barris, a British blues-rock singer, and their friends and family members. Threatening the safety and happiness of not only this group of people but also the entire cosmos, is a megalomaniac vampire and the various dark powers that support his twisted desires. The book also features angels, demons, gods and goddesses from various mythologies, and intertwines true events from the hard rock underground of the 1980's and 1990's with a fantastic tale of supernatural terror.
