‘Heaven Rediscovered’, is a novel and a love story. The challenging transition to writing a fictional story was made by the pleasure I have telling stories and describing places I enjoyed visiting. Only this time it is a question of creating these imaginary characters through their exciting, and at times, dramatic adventures. Accompanying three generations across the world, here again, I wished to bring hope to my readers, that there is a place where we can find heaven, here on Earth, within ourselves, and in other dimensions. I also advocate for animal rights and against any form of abuse or cruelty, and suggest ways of making our planet again the Garden of Eden, as it was originally intended.

About the Author
Prior to my medical career, I followed in my early years a musical inclination and studied how to play the harp. Music has always been part of my life, even if I could not play as often as i would have loved. Following the Conservatoire in Paris, France, where I am from, I enrolled in medicine and completed a doctorate in medicine at the University Lariboisiere-St. Louis, in Paris, I specialized in Sports Medicine and Pain Medicine, and I had a 3 1/2 years of private practice until 1986, when I came to US.
I first started writing books at the request of some of my patients, who asked me to share some of my words of encouragement we had during our conversations, with other people that might find help as well. I must say that many of my patients who suffered from devastating injuries, spent at times weeks and months in the hospital, and during these trying long days and nights of their recovery, doctor-patient relationship was very important for all of us. Going through the lows and the heights of medical concerns and intense emotions, the battle of rebuilding a new life and many times a new person, averted to be a very rewarding journey for the patients and their family, as well as a very humbling and enriching experience for myself.
My first two books, "You Are Not Alone" and Gentle Therapy", are motivational books. "Heaven Rediscovered" represents a new challenge for me, and it is a fictional novel. It is a love story and the two main characters, Isabelle and Gérard, will take the reader into their life adventure with unexpected dramas, places, and events.
"Heaven Rediscovered" brings in existential inquiries about reasons of our life on Earth, questioning about our destiny after our physical demise. Is there a connection between life as we know it now and Heaven, is love immortal, is there a God, and why is tolerated violence and suffering?
Writing "Heaven Rediscovered", I attempted to introduce my own ideas answering to these questions, at times with some images suggested by patients that shared with me their own experiences. My book intended to bring hope and uplift my readers' spirits, to dream that there can be Heaven on Earth if we humans make the right choices, and that we can find our Heaven, here, on Earth, within ourselves, or in higher realms, where love has no barriers.
