Book Blurb

Rose O’Carroll is the eternal optimist and  never stops believing that she will one day find’ her one’ even though she’s still single and hitting 40.  In her search for love, she bravely decides to pack up her comfortable life in Australia and move to London.  Guided by her special friends her angels she quickly settles in her new life; lands a great job; makes new friendships and begins her spiritual journey. 

It didn’t take long until Joe DeMarco, the handsome American business man turns Rose’s world upside down and changes it forever. Rose intuitively knows she has met her twin soul mate.  But how does she cope when he tells her it’s just the wrong time? 

Everything happens for a reason and soon Rose discovers why she had to meet Joe DeMarco when the timing was wrong. She had someone else to meet first…and it wasn’t only the dishy Dr St Claire.


I wanted to share with you a couple of "interesting occurrences" that have happened since I have written my book “I LISTENED TO MY HEART" which is making me more aware of the power of manifesting what we want into our lives through written words.

I also write lyrics and one of my songs “When I’m Alone” which was under consideration by a music publisher has now been selected to be put forward to country music star Faith Hill. Now, whilst it hasn't been chosen yet, and it may not - it is an achievement in itself just to be selected. However, the reason I'm sharing this news with you is because I had actually written about this in my book, (see page 341) where I wrote the following: “Can you imagine someone as famous as Alicia Keys singing ‘Did I Misread all the Signs’, or Faith Hill singing ‘When I’m Alone’ and my latest is ‘I’m Free’, which I’d love someone like Sheryl Crow or Lucinda Williams to sing,” I said with excitement.  

Now, I'd totally forgotten that I'd written it but my angels hadn't and they wanted to remind me, and they did! As I was settling myself into bed still very much excited about my news - for some reason I picked up my book and randomly opened it to page 341. I started to read the page and blow me down; there it was in black and white! I had already written what had just happened. But what really surprised me was the fact that I had opened my book to that particular page. Synchronization at play here, that's for sure. Mind you, I shouldn't be surprised as I'm always getting messages and signs from the universe, but signs like this, well to say I was gob-smacked is an understatement! I mean there are hundreds of country singers and I've had over 25 songs recorded to music…why did I pick Faith Hill, and that particular song?

I had also experienced this sort of occurrence once before just after writing my book. I wrote about a music producer that I meet in my book called David Walker, and at the time of writing it was a fictional name that I randomly picked out of my head. One day I was on the internet looking for a good/inexpensive demo company as I had just written a song that I really wanted to have recorded. I came across a site called Walker Enterprises, so I sent them an email asking about their services etc. The reply came back from a man called David Walker. Hmmm, that name rang a bell so I went through my manuscript as I was certain that was the name of the music producer that I had written about. And it was! I have since gone on to meet David Walker as he is producing a couple more songs for me. But, I'm beginning to wonder....have I written my own reality?
