Stumbling Backasswards into the Light is a spiritual autobiographical novel chronicling the return of “Nobody” from the brink of despair and looming death as he begins to comprehend the truth of his Divine nature. The story takes place in the mountains of Puget Sound, but transforms to an ethereal meeting with a mysterious rescuer – known as Somebody – who guides the young man on a journey of inner exploration taking him from hopelessness to joy.

“Nobody,” he intoned gravely, “You have been drawn here for a reason. Your whole life has led you to this point. All I’m asking for is the chance to prove it to you.”

A chill ran up my spine. It wasn’t fear I was feeling, though, it was excitement. His words made me feel a sense of destiny, something I had longed for all my life.
