Most writers can't help themselves! It's a compulsion. Getting published, though, is something really special, and having been so fortunate myself I now try to help aspiring writers by handing on tips it took me years to work out. I've published over 60 titles, including four in the How To Books' Successful Writing Series, and Writing Historical Fiction for Studymates. I have judged short story competitions, been a final judge for the Harry Bowling Prize and was an adviser to the 3rd edition of Twentieth Century Romance and Historical Writers 1994. If you want to find out more about your favourite authors, consult this book. I once wrote an article on writing romantic fiction for the BBC's web page, for Valentine's day. I have given talks and workshops for the Arts Council and at most of the major Writing Conferences, and helped establish the Romantic Novelists' Association's annual conference. I was Chairman of the RNA 1991-3, ran their New Writers' Scheme and edited their newsletter. I am now a Vice-President. As well as writing I have edited books for Transita, featuring women 'of a certain age', and for Choc Lit where gorgeous heros are the norm. I was asked to write A Century of Achievement, a 290 page history of my old school, Queen Mary's High School, Walsall, and commissioned to write a book on Castles and Corvedale to accompany a new circular walk in the area. Most of my Regencies written under the pseudonym Sally James are now published in ebook format as well as many others of my out of print novels which my husband is putting into ebook format. Our daughter Debbie is helping with designing the covers. For details of all my books and my many pseudonyms see my website.

'Kundalini' is the Indian word for a spiritual energy known by a variety of titles to many cultures - 'Shekinah' in mystical Judaism, 'Sekhem' in Egypt, 'Da Kan Li' in Daoism. Present throughout the universe, Kundalini is thought to lie quiescent in most humans at the base of the spine. In this book, Dr. Arundale gives a clear, concise and very personal account of this powerful force which, when aroused, migrates up the spine, vivifying successive chakra until reaching the crown - when it bestows 'enlightenment' of long or short duration. Dr George S Arundale spent many years in India studying its spiritual traditions, and working alongside such luminaries as Annie Besant. He was principal of the Central Hindu College in Varanasi, and in 1934 was elected as president of the Theosophical Society, a post he held until his death in 1945.
