The author has studied religion since the age of seven, when her grandmother gave her a copy of the Bible. She began reading the Bible immediately and never stopped. As an adult, she has studied mysticism, UFOs, hauntings and other paranormal phenomena, as well as archaeology, history and literature. Raised by a mother who vacillated between occult mysticism and atheism, sprinkled with Apocalyptic Christianity, the author sought her own path in life and religion.
Throughout childhood, she suffered nightmares, was terrorized by shadow people and demons, and sought release from the bonds of demonic oppression. She had the experience of being "saved" when, at the age of twenty, she was baptized in a backyard swimming pool, but she continued to struggle through three decades of battle against demonic forces. Finally, after hearing several radio interviews with Father Malachi Martin, a Catholic priest who performed exorcisms, she found the key to banishing demons and other spirits from her life.
