Linn Aspen grew up in northern Sweden where the understated beauty and quietness of the landscape fed her contemplative nature. At age twenty, and thirsty for life experiences, she left Scandinavia for the USA. Since then, she has raised three children and engaged in many careers. Most valuable for the writing of her novel, The Dreamtidings of a Disgruntled Starbeing; Life with a psychopathic brother, was her work as a holistic practitioner. Working as a hypnotherapist, intuitive healer and channeler, Reiki Master, and Shamanic teacher all gave her intimate insights into the many challenges we face, as well as the innate strength of the human spirit.
Apart from this experience, The Dreamtidings of a Disgruntled Starbeing, also draws inspiration from Linn’s lifelong exploration of life’s mysteries through philosophy, and metaphysics, brought on by her extrasensory perception and her own, personal, experiences of extra-conscious phenomenons.
She is now re-tired, or perhaps more accurately re-vived as, in this stage of her life she gets to embrace, not only grandchildren, but a welcome return to a quiet and peaceful landscape, this time in Vermont, where she lives with her husband and their two tiny, tiny dogs.
The Dreamtidings of a Disgruntled Starbeing: Life with a psychopathic brother
A quirky philosophical novel
Precocious, 13-year-old Klara Tippins lives in a refurbished convent in upstate New York with her cumbersome and unwholesome family. She has a mission of which she is only vaguely aware and, though her star family is there to help, she’s not convinced of their presence and can’t remember the guidance they give her while she sleeps.
Her inability to remember her dreams is understandable though regrettable, as growing up in a household with a psychopath is anything but easy. The general advice, of what to do when one encounters a person without conscience, is to get away from them. But what do you do when a predator is right there as you take your first steps and you have nowhere to run? What advice does a star family have to give?
As Klara navigates the perplexing morals of her disconnected family, she encounters three different belief systems (Hinduism, Quakerism, and Q'ero Shamanism) that set her on a journey of self-discovery.
A heartfelt novel about forgiveness and the power of self-acceptance.
