Today M. C. V. Egan, author of Bridge of Deaths, is here to talk about seeing a project through. Welcome!
When I first started to write The Bridge of Deaths I planned to work on a documented factual account that showed all the resources from archives as well as all the documented data from psychics and past life regressions.
There was a real air of arrogance in that book, as if I were a historian or an authority on psychic abilities; I am as I hope everyone understands neither.
As with so many things that turn out pretty well in life, the original reason I had to change my plans was one that left me feeling a bit defeated. One of those blows that make one wonder; what is the use?
The subject of the documented past life regressions requested anonymity and my factual documentation lacked an essential element. I detached from the project and at some point even thought I was done with it, a failed attempt at something.
I was saved by a healthy dose of the paranormal, by visiting not one but several psychics all of whom kept on saying;
“You are researching history”
“I was, I am done”
“No, No, you are researching history and you are writing a book and you will succeed and it will be very well received.”
My skeptical side mumbled in my brain something or other about money wasted on a reading.
When it happened several times my skeptical mind began to question…how many times is it coincidence and at what point do I accept psychic talents?
I would love to brag that I am ever so enlightened that it was a few; but it was many and not only that it was other predictions that began to come true that gave me the courage to listen and proceed.
So here I am, I succeeded by adding a touch of romance to the story which became the fictional element and using the healthy scoop of the paranormal I already possessed.
I gave Bill the past life regressions of the original subject and that was it. Everything else about Bill was strictly out of my mind’s eye. I created the Magical Maggie who absolutely made me tap into the long lost romantic in me. It is very true; before I created Maggie romance had become rather inexistent in my life. When Maggie fell in love with Bill, I began to feel in love and to watch love stories and to be more romantic.
So yes The Bridge of Deaths is chock-a-block with historical data, autopsies and various other documents, all interesting and informative. It has an element of mystery and a touch or romance with a healthy scoop of the paranormal.
The Bridge of Deaths
By M. C. V. Egan
On August 15th, 1939 an English passenger plane from British Airways Ltd. Crashed in Danish waters between the towns of Nykobing/Falster and Vordingborg. There were five casualties reported and one survivor. Just two weeks before Hitler invaded Poland with the world at the brink of war the manner in which this incident was investigated left much open to doubt. The jurisdiction battle between the two towns and the newly formed Danish secret police, created an atmosphere of intrigue and distrust.
In the winter of 2009-2010 a young executive, Bill is promoted and transferred to London for a major International firm. He has struggled for the better part of his life with nightmares and phobias, which only seem to worsen in London. As he seeks the help of a therapist he accepts that his issues may well be related to a ‘past-life trauma’.
Through love, curiosity, archives and the information superhighway of the 21st century Bill travels through knowledge and time to uncover the story of the 1939 plane crash.
The Bridge of Deaths is a love story and a mystery. Fictional characters travel through the world of past life regressions and information acquired from psychics as well as archives and historical sources to solve “One of those mysteries that never get solved” is based on true events and real people, it is the culmination of 18 years of sifting through sources in Denmark, England and the United States, it finds a way to help the reader feel that he /she is also sifting through data and forming their own conclusions.
The journey takes the reader to well known and little known events leading up to the Second World War, both in Europe and America. The journey also takes the reader to the possibility of finding oneself in this lifetime by exploring past lives.
