Nora M. Garcia
Born, raised and educated in New York City, Nora now makes her home in Southern California where, recently divorced, she enjoys a successful career in the media business. When Nora first began researching The Lightbearers, she went to the New York Public Library and immediately headed for the Egyptian section. While walking down the empty aisles a book suddenly fell off the shelf and landed at her feet. It turned out to be Akhenaten’s biography; Nora was immediately captivated with his story and hence the creation of a fantasy about Akhenatena and Nefertiti.
The Lightbearers is about an ancient Egyptian King and Queen who have been reincarnating for over 3300 years and is based on the lives of Akhenaten and Nefertiti about whom I created a fantasy. As Lightbearers, their mission is to be guardians of the human race and I have ascribed to them the powers of astral projection, telepathy and psycho-kinesis. In ancient Egypt they were mentored by a being from a more advanced civilization. They must try and influence anyone whose path they cross to become Lightbearers as well and hopefully raise the collective consciousness of the planet. The story opens in the 21st century when they discover a terrible secret for which they are assassinated and must return to resolve the conflict. They can determine when they return and the gender in which they return but they cannot predetermine their identities so they have to pick a time, a place and a signal by which they can identify each other and reunite. They decide to meet 20 years later on the UCLA campus where he will sit under a tree near the computer science building strumming "Imagine" by John Lennon. The reunion takes place but not without a hitch and their journey continues.
Praise for "The Lightbearers"
"The Lightbearers is a fantastic story where Egyptian royalty, the supernatural, romance, and political corruption all coincide. I enjoyed reading both about the evolution of Akhenaton and Nefertiti's powers and their struggle to bring peace and power to the world's inhabitants. The idea that we can be more, do more, with what we have if only we understood how to tap those abilities has always fascinated me, and Nora has certainly written a story that stretches the imagination, but not so far as to be unbelievable. The combination of tragic loss reminds me of Romeo and Juliet with a sci-fi spin, but in Nora's world each life is yet another chance to find happiness once more. It's a moral we should all take to heart in the hopes of a brighter future.
I'd recommend that any fans of the supernatural, sci-fi, or romance pick up this book. It will certainly be worth every penny and much more"
