I've always felt that we're all connected. I call it the PeaceGrid. You're on it. I'm on it. Everyone everywhere is on it. Whenever we do something, it has an impact on everyone. I find joy in being creative. I hope you feel the joy from my books and art.
As a middle child, I found myself the peacemaker. I travel the real world to share my outlook and to immerse myself in local and global points of view. Journeys to the inner world can be mystical.
We are all creative. It takes courage to let others see the manifestation of our imagination. When we allow ourselves to express our ideas, we can surprise ourselves with the outcome. My books and art are wild mustangs of the heart and mind.
Some fairytales take place in lands with castles and dragons. This adventure begins in America and proceeds to India where the unexpected is commonplace. Two diverse individuals meet—and realizing that they share a synergistic bond—unite their efforts to manifest emotions, life, and love. This non-fiction chronicle acknowledges that twin flames finding each other can persevere to burn as one. Miracles do happen, and mere mortals can surmount obstacles. Dreams do come true!

Frances Ellen Walsh Embarks on an Unforgettable Journey
In our globalized world, there is cross-cultural contact that increasingly spans international borders. While online resources provide greater opportunities for travel, there is also more information about violence, conflict, and unrest in distant destinations.
According to the U.S. State Department, travelers to Kashmir, India, are encouraged to exercise increased caution due to crime and terrorism. But Frances Ellen Walsh was not deterred from traveling thousands of miles on a journey that would irrevocably change her life.
With a degree in metaphysics, this author and educator is interested in exploring the “layers of meaning in everything we do and see.” She adds, “In religiously diverse India, there is a heightened spiritual awareness. I wanted to portray some of the seen and unseen dimensions of that world.”
“I say yes to everything,” Walsh explains. “I’m all about saying yes to the universe and waiting to see what comes from my decisions. My life is an adventure, and I’m not afraid of trying new things and going to new places.”
Walsh has always been passionate about travel, and over the years she has jumped on every opportunity presented to her to travel internationally. “Every trip is an adventure,” she explains. “We are all citizens of the world, and there is joy in learning about each other’s differences and similarities.”
Despite visiting many countries, Walsh found India to be special. After her first trip there, she knew she would go back, and five years later, her travels to India have become the basis for her latest book, “An American in Kashmir: Undaunted Love”.
Chronicling her life and the challenges she has encountered along the way, Walsh hopes this book will give her readers hope and permission to live a life without regret.
“Others will have opinions of what you should be doing with your life. But it’s YOUR life. We each get only one time around. There’s no time for waiting; we never know how long we have. Live your life as you dreamed it. Go for it!”
Publisher, Lisa M. Umina, comments, “This author poignantly chronicles her travel experiences, and it is powerful in that it captures both the external voyage to visit another country and the more subtle journey that is taken within the self. The result is a book that will transport the readers on personal journeys of their own.”
The book launch event will take place on October 28th, 2018, from 4-6 p.m. at The Muse Writers Center (2200 Colonial Ave #3) in Norfolk, Virginia.
