Who exactly do energy vampires and negative people affect?
Simple … Everybody!
So what is an energy vampire? You’ve probably heard the term “energy vampires” before, especially if you’re at all interested in psychic ability or psychic development. But what exactly are energy vampires? They’re not real vampires. Well, I guess they’re real vampires, but not like the ones you see in Twilight … “Energy vampires” feed upon your energy. In other words, their primary target is your spiritual body, not your physical body.
“Energy vampires” are people who constantly draw upon other people’s energy in order to help “recharge” their own system.
When the studious, determined microengineer Lady Felicia Sorensen is asked to partner Emperor Victor Sinclair at a ball, little does she realize that her world is about to be overturned. Sick of the socialites who can only see his status, the Emperor falls madly in love with her. But she is so single-minded in her dedication to her scientific career that she treads, more than once, on his most painful memories and psychological issues!
Nevertheless, he is so determined to have her that he entices her with all the resources at his command, from sexual stimulation and outrageously expensive gowns to promising her that she can ‘write her own job description’. Is it love, or is it manipulation? Felicia does not want to be merely the source of ova for the Imperial Heir, nor does she like being the center of attention. And an assassination attempt proves that the publicity of being an Imperial fiancée means her mere presence generates continuous danger, even from rival scientists on other planets!
Will Felicia choose her Imperial lover and tough out the extreme political and social pressures with the supreme ruler of the Empire, or will she choose her goals and help thousands, millions, possibly billions of people through her intellectual achievements?
July 1952 is teenaged Raleigh Buchanan’s last vacation on Country Pond, New Hampshire, where for the previous two summers he and an Irish boy had traded notes. Feeling the familiar rush of intrigue, Raleigh removes the kid’s latest note from behind the ceramic half-moon tacked above the cottage door. The note contains a riddle half-written in Gaelic. Mystified and irritated, he puts the note away with other childish things – soon to be forgotten.
Twenty-six years will pass before Raleigh, now a Boston police detective, realizes that the note holds clues he needs to solve a murder; and that it contains the key to his true heritage, which began with star-crossed lovers a century before he was born.
Against the backdrop of Ireland’s “Great Hunger,” the violent struggle of the 1860s to free Ireland, and “The Troubles” of the 1970s, The Butterfly Legacy, a 95,000-word historical novel, is a richly rendered story of Nelly, a young Irish girl and her descendants that began when she and an English captain fall in love. Resulting in twins who are separated at birth, their affair ends with the captain’s presumed abandonment of Nelly and her subsequent exile to Prince Edward Island, Canada where she enters into an arranged marriage to a man she does not know.
From Nelly’s near fatal voyage with the healthier twin across the Atlantic in a “coffin ship” to the 1978 murder of an Englishman whose brutalized body is found on the grounds of Winnekenni Castle located in Haverhill, Massachusetts (the city featured in Andre Dubus’s acclaimed memoire, Townie), the novel traces the adventures of 6 generations of characters as they encounter adversity and twists of fate, suicide and other family secrets, misguided patriotism and murder. These themes – tempered with healthy doses of Irish wit – will resonate with readers from most any ethnic group as they are drawn into the pain and joy of difficult lives fully lived.
