The Soul's Last Host

Heather struggles to go through the motions of a life once worth living. Buy groceries. Take meds. Volunteer at youth shelter. Silently judge therapist. Make dinner. Get drunk. Relive horrific encounter with psychopath. Rinse. Repeat.

Her life is destroyed. And the man who destroyed it is a mystery.

To Heather. To the police. Even to himself.

He sits in the hospital, unable to move his body, unable to remember who or what he is. The name they call him holds no meaning for him. Bernard.

He can travel into their minds. The nurses. The other patients. At least he thinks he can. He sees through their eyes. Listens to their thoughts. Spends the long, lonely hours searching for answers.

When the disturbingly charismatic Dr. Shaw takes a keen interest in both Bernard and Heather, they must piece together a shattered past and choose who they will trust and who they will fight in a war that has been going on since the dawn of humanity. A war where the lines that separate us as individuals blur, bend, and break.

In The Soul's Last Host, McLean weaves a unique and powerful tale that takes us around the globe, through human minds, right into the souls that govern our thoughts and dreams.

The Way of The Fairy Godmother

2015 Winner Writers Digest Self Published eBook Inspirational category.

First Place 2016 Golden Apple Awards for Inspirational eBook

I am a seeker of serenity, searching for the pathways of enduring happiness. Decades of exploring and synthesizing avenues to wisdom led me to my favorite fairytale, the tale of Cinderella. This time I didn't interpret the fairytale from Cinderella's viewpoint. Instead I apprenticed to the Fairy Godmother. I noticed the Fairy Godmother lives within uncompromising, radiant happiness. Her lifestyle is dangerously optimistic. As a result she expedites miraculous outcomes. It's not that she doesn't notice the problems of life. Cinderella didn't have a dress for the ball. She needs a coach and driver. When you are grounded in reality you deal with the problems.

I don't want to tell you how old I was before I began creating my life from the perspective of the Fairy Godmother. Let's just leave it at, for much of my life I was in the habit of creating life from Cinderella's point of view. More often than not I was disappointed. Like Cinderella I worked and worked to create harmony in environments that would not support harmony. Such an unstinting effort is exhausting, especially after several decades. To say it was stressful and no fun only scratches the surface of the issue. It was a harsh and bleak way to live. Imagine Cinderella in her thirties and forties scrubbing away at the kitchen floor, struggling to make beauty in an environment for people who cannot appreciate elegance. Living life from Cinderella's perspective is to stay entrapped in the young maiden who longs for fulfillment. Hardship is her constant companion. Unfulfilled relationships are her unremitting burden.

My quest? Mature beyond the Cinderella archetype. Find enduring happiness. Imitating Cinderella had generated disasters. It's tough to admit. I'm trained in the skills of good communication and the secrets of happy relationships. I have a masters degree in counseling and I've spent decades running down the pathways of mystics, practicing their healing methods. But when it came to relationships even the people who love me the most shook their heads in dismay. Okay, I'll confess. I was in my fifties when I set about studying the ways of the Fairy Godmother.

Way of the Fairy Godmother explores the skills of savoring and what is already working in life. One teacher claimed; if we can breathe we can improve our circumstances. He meant "breathe" in the literal, not metaphoric, sense. That's intense! Do you know the power of a cleansing breath? So when the Fairy Godmother arrived in Cinderella's vegetable garden, almost hidden by the stalks of corn, she didn't talk with Cinderella about her problems. The Fairy Godmother's first conversation with Cinderella explored her dreams and Cinderella's dream was a first date with the Prince. This is important because entwining Deepest Desires with our strengths leads us into a state of absorption and flow. Like the athlete who finds 'the zone' we are lost in the pleasure of growing mastery. One of Cinderella's strengths? Her need to create beauty. She didn't just clean her house, she made her home shine with the love she put into her task. Loving was another strength. Also a Fairy Godmother models a positive language specific to goals and ambitions. Why? Our brains translate our words and thoughts into images. Our biochemistry interacts with images. The Fairy Godmother teaches the power of visual images to prepare us for success and happiness. A Proclamation will revolutionize Cinderella's life. Why? Clear goals initiate self-esteem. Focal points of beauty support her on the journey. Golden Ladders each rung associated with behaviors congruent with Deepest Desires will delineate the territory of personal happiness. With step by step procedures we too enter the world of the Fairy Godmother. If we are stuck in the Cinderella rut, there is a better way.

An unwitting pawn to nefarious plans, she stops by Timothy's apartment one fine Corinthian day bearing an unexpected and unwelcome present, a Menagerie.

The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta - New Beginnings

"Tim Hurtletuta has forgotten something. He cannot see or fully understand what it is yet, but behind his awareness a far wiser and more powerful part of him knows that what he's lost has never faded far from view. Its memory waits ever present for his arrival, compassionately and intuitively nudging him towards the peripheries of his reality inside every moment it can. The decision's his to make. Will he remain where and who he believes himself to be? Or will he choose to go against everything his better judgement tells him and open his eyes to embrace the memory as it unfolds itself around him. One thing's for sure, whichever path he chooses his life will never be the same again." The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta is a profound and quirky fictional journey exploring one man's unique remembrance of this beautiful conundrum called life.

If you find this book resonates with you, be sure to check out Book Two, "The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta - Balance."

The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta - Balance

"After every new beginning comes a period of balance, a space for realignment where the seeds of that new beginning can take root and grow. But what is balance? Through the expression of humanity, balance can be perceived in so many different ways, making it near impossible to find a universal understanding of its form. What connects us inside this conundrum however, is the remembrance of how balance manifests itself through our collective humanity. A manifestation that regardless of our myriad of linear interpretations and ways of being, will always conceptually unite us as one. On one fine summer's eve, with his nearest and dearest by his side, Tim invites you to return to his journey and unite your unique perception with his. Your presence will be sure to help create a remarkably good evening." The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta is a profound and quirky fictional journey exploring one man's unique remembrance of this beautiful conundrum called life. Book Two, Balance, is a continuation of that journey. An inspirational story of personal discovery and how such discovery connects the inner world we witness with outer world we see. Although it would be awesome if you read Book One, "The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta - New Beginnings," before you read this book, it must be noted that there is no prerequisite that indicates that you need to. Although this story is indeed a continuation of what has been, it has also been designed to stand alone in its own right too. As is such, please trust your intuition on where is the right place for you to join Tim's journey. You can't go wrong. Please note that the novel has been written and edited in British English.
