Who is Chariss K. Walker?
Chariss K Walker, B. Msc., M. Div., writes both fiction and nonfiction books that share metaphysical insight... what some would call paranormal occurrences.
Chariss has said that each step she's taken in life has led to this very moment. She encourages others to understand that each experience, whether considered a blessing or a mistake, was the right choice to make at that time. She says, "It’s the reconciliation and acceptance of the choices we’ve made that turn those experiences from fear to love." Chariss has many life lessons to share through her writings.
A lifelong student, she’s studied religion and metaphysics extensively for many years through seminars, e-courses, home-study courses, self-help books, and earning educational degrees (Bachelors of Metaphysical Sciences and Masters of Divinity). She’s been known to read two and three books at once in a quest to understand and share with others what she’s learned. However, her real qualifications matter more: life experiences, true insight, and helping others. In 2001, Chariss completed the highest degree attainable as Reiki Master/Teacher. She shares metaphysical and esoteric concepts studied for over thirty years in both nonfiction and fiction writings.
Why a writer?
Chariss began reading and writing even before her formal education began. She says, “The words simply made sense to me. I always knew I would become a published author, but the dream wasn't realized until 2008. Life kept getting in the way.”
“I’ve written about everything…usually the stuff no one wants to talk about. The stuff that isn’t considered polite conversation, such as abuse, rape, incest, death and grief. The dark and dirty secrets that families keep hidden make my writings dark, very dark. My favorite fiction genres include crime, thriller, paranormal. My favorite nonfiction genres are centered around inspirational and personal growth topics in body, mind, and spirit. Because I'm a wounded healer, I accept the dichotomy, allowing me to write both easily.”
You might find it strange for an author to write such a mixture, but her fiction book characters have superhuman/supernatural/paranormal abilities and gifts. The knowledge about these aspects comes from the study of all things "metaphysical," a category that can't be explained by science. For example, there really are "auras" and "chakras" and some people can see them. People do dream "dreams" that come true. “Child-eyes” is a very real state of being. Although her nonfiction books discuss these topics, her fiction books are also filled with insight. Some characters listen to their inner voice, some see visions, some receive messages, and some experience spiritual transformation.
