With books achieving international sales at the multi-million copy level, prolific Irish writer Herbie Brennan has charted a personal interest in spirituality, reincarnation, physical research, comparative religion and transpersonal psychology that has culminated in this major examination of the mystery of death. Brennan's intellectual journey began early with a childhood study of Yoga philosophy and expanded into a lifelong fascination for mysticism and the paranormal. In more recent times, an abiding interest in astronomy has led to two children's books on the subject, one specially commissioned for exclusive distribution in UK schools. Over the past few years, his reappraisal of ancient history has stirred lively debate on TV and radio as well as in the press. He broadcasts and lectures regularly throughout the UK and Ireland. He lives in County Carlow, Ireland.
