About the Author
Nancy Rynes was raised on a small farm near Woodstock, Illinois and is currently a writer and artist residing near Boulder, Colorado.
Born Roman Catholic, Rynes became an atheist, and later an agnostic, beginning in her late teens when she went to university to study geology and archaeology. While she began her education as an artist at Chicago's American Academy of Art, she went on to earn a BSc in geology from Northern Illinois University, then attended the University of Colorado, Boulder, for Masters-level coursework. The sciences taught her to base her views only on things that were measurable. Since Spirit was not measurable, it did not exist in her view.
The skepticism remained until January of 2014 when Spirit gave Rynes a wake-up call in the form of a tragic accident. Since her near-death experience, she has returned to a more spiritual and creative life based on the wisdom she learned in Heaven.
In the past, Rynes has been an archeological artist, geologist, and data analyst, and science/technical writer. But then Heaven threw her a curveball, one she feels she desperately needed. Now, she writes books about Spirit, what happens when we die, and how we can bring a little bit of "Heaven" to our lives on Earth.

I would recommend, to a "seeking person," or a recently bereaved person who is looking for comfort, to look for different books. I'll list a couple of my favorites, even though it may not be 100% fair to this author. I first discovered NDEs and the comfort they can give to me, even second-hand, because of the deaths of two of my own children while they were babies...I wanted to know "Where did they go?"
=="To Heaven and Back" by Mary C. Neale Great experience, good wisdom to pass on. She's an M.D. in Jackson Hole, WY.
=="Proof of Heaven" by Eben Alexander Kind of a "new age" style heavenly experience, from a neurosurgeon...very extensive.
==John Lerma, (hospice physician in Texas, has published two books on bedside visions of the dying that could be helpful)
"Into the Light" and "Learning from the Light".
==Crystal McVea "Waking Up in Heaven: A True Story of Brokenness, Heaven and Life Again"...esp recommended to anyone who's had an abortion in their past, or experienced childhood sexual abuse.
==Jeff Olsen He has 2 books, 2 years apart. Especially strong on marriage bonds and seeing his dead child in heaven.
==One more(for the Christian diehards! You'll know who you are.) Howard Storm's "Descent Into Death" in which he experiences hell, redemption, Jesus, and angels. It's all there!
All these books: believe or don't believe, but I don't see the sense of arguing w/anyone's stated experience, as I've seen some authors try to do, when they write a so-called "rebuttal".
To the author: please know that your book is full of good things! I've read it and will continue to read it. Your story is amazing...and you really, logically, "should not be alive." I'm glad that you are, and for your message. Thank you.
A great Non-NDE book related to these books is "Self-Compassion" by Kristin Neff, Ph.D. Dr. Neff elaborates the principle and practice of self-compassion (loving yourself unconditionally).
