Shelley Emery and Jackie Sims had been the best of friends for nine years until the veil between life and death opened for Jackie. Although both women had always shared a common belief in the paranormal and the afterlife, Shelley struggled with the acceptance of death and the reality that life never ends. When Shelley begins experiencing strange visits and paranormal phenomena, she wonders if it could be Jackie attempting to communicate with her. Finally after another encounter with the ghostly visitor, Shelley receives a phone call from Jackie's former assistant with a message bringing good tidings and never ending love straight from the grave.

A Note from Sydney~
The Celestial Series is a fictional collection of short stories with a common theme throughout.  You will find a message of hope here.  A declaration of new beginnings and a sign that the supernatural spirit of God is as real as the darkness that surrounds us in times of despair.  For more than three decades, I’ve witnessed unexplained mysteries and ghostly encounters, but the most life-altering encounters I’ve ever experienced will always be the times I’ve witnessed God in all of His supernatural glory.

Each installment in this series has a part of me and my life’s experiences with the paranormal.  Although the characters and circumstances are fictional, their experiences have been mine and recreated here for you. 

On December 31, 2004, I experienced an angelic encounter that will remain etched in my soul forever. I invite you to experience the same through my character, Elizabeth Chapman.  I hope you enjoy The Visit.

Love and Light,
