Daphne, AL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2013 -- In 2009, Judy Diller unexpectedly fell victim to every mother’s worst nightmare; the loss of a child. While people tackle grief in a myriad of different ways, Diller’s close connection with her son paved the way for a unique journey to rebuilding her life.

“Charlie was just twenty-three when he died, two months after he came home from Faulkner State College complaining of feeling ill. Although his passing left a huge physical hole in my life, I could hear his voice telling me to write a book about my dreams,” says Diller.

Continuing, “My dreams about Charlie living in another realm began a few months after his death. I would feel myself slowly emerge into another world, knocking on a door where my mother appeared; once inside I found Charlie and my deceased nephew Johnny, who clearly asked for my help in regard to unrest in their Spiro realm. This was the bold inspiration behind my book.”

‘Beyond Life’ developed into a powerful work of Paranormal Fiction. Inspired by her dreams, Diller’s gripping narrative takes readers into a realm where they will discover faith’s boundless opportunities.
