Chariss K Walker, M. Msc., writes both fiction and nonfiction books that share metaphysical insight gained from over thirty years of study and earning educational degrees… what some would call paranormal occurrences. As a Reiki Master/Teacher she has worked with many individuals to assist in the understanding of their particular gifts.
When asked why she writes the things she writes, Chariss says, “I’ve written about everything… I even dream jokes for specific comedians. Keep in mind, I’m not weird; I’m different and I utilize those differences. Usually I write about the stuff no one wants to talk about. The stuff that isn’t considered polite conversation, such as abuse, rape, incest, death, and grief. The dark and dirty secrets that families keep hidden make my writings dark, very dark. My favorite fiction genres include crime, thriller, paranormal. My favorite nonfiction genres are centered around inspirational and personal growth topics in body, mind, and spirit. Because I’m a wounded healer, I accept the dichotomy, allowing me to write both easily.”
You might find it strange for an author to write such a diverse mixture, but her fiction book characters have superhuman/supernatural/paranormal abilities and gifts. The knowledge about these aspects comes from the study of all things “metaphysical,” a category that can’t be explained by science. For example, there really are “auras” and “chakras” and some people can see them. People do dream “dreams” that come true. “Child-eyes” is a very real state of being. Although her nonfiction books discuss these topics, her fiction books are also filled with insight and in-depth explanations about these mystical abilities. Some characters listen to their inner voice, some see visions, some receive messages, and some experience spiritual transformation.
