Mary Ann Olson is certified in Reflexology, is a Reiki Master and IET practitioner who practices her craft in her home-based spa called The Oasis. Starting at an early age and during her studies in natural healing, she developed an awareness to the spiritual energies around her. This connection deepened after the passing of her cherished grandson and beloved pet daughter. The signs from the 'Afterlife' that she received from them are documented in this inspirational collection that has taken over forty years to complete. Also included in these collective works are true life encounters from some of the Author's friends and colleagues who willing shared their tales of hope and healing. Mary Ann is the author of two stories that appeared in the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series, 'Kyle's Rainbow' appeared in Answered Prayers and 'My Johnny Angel' was published in Love Stories, First Dates.
