Chrystallia & The Source of LIGHT
I have always loved story telling. To me, it is our most sacred way of passing the experience of our human lives to all those that will follow. It is our way of celebrating our indomitable spirit, our quest for knowledge and our pursuit of love. It ties us together.
All of us.
It reminds us why we’re here.
It reminds us why we are human.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to tell stories as an actor, a director, and now a writer. My life has had so much in it, and the best way I know of sharing what I have learned is to tell a story.
‘Chrystallia and the Source of Light’ is that story and my only hope is that you and yours enjoy discovering and rediscovering it as much as I have telling it.
It is a story about a thirteen year old girl, (told in her voice) and her nine year-old brother who are about to lose their mother and their house. It is their last Christmas together and the two children find themselves on an unexpected journey underground in the amazing world of crystals and minerals in search of the source of light. It is a story of light, love, courage in the face of helplessness, forgiveness, discovering the truth of yourself and finding your way ‘home.’
What I have learned has helped me immeasurably and I look forward to being able to share that lesson.

What I have read of Chrystallia on the website(which is a fantastic website)is wonderful. I am really looking forward to reading it. I would also like the audio of you reading it, it would be a delight to sit and close my eyes and hear your voice telling me a wonderful story, transporting me to another world. The illustrations are magnificent. I like the idea of the bracelet.
It will also be interesting to see if you do a website for your 2nd book.
I look forward to the time that the book is available.
Have a lovely Sunday
Love as always

I agree, that website is amazing and so many great ideas to go with the book.
Me too Dianne – the CD would be great – but would I be safe on the roads if I played it in the car?????
By Diane, August 22, 2010 @ 1:43 pm
Hi Hilly, I know what you mean, not a good idea in the car, but hot tub, headphones, champagne and that wonderful voice, sounds perfect, hey, I can dream can’t I !!!
Hope you are well Hilly, haven’t spoken for a while.
Love Diane X
Seriously, I really think (for me) hearing Paul tell this story would have more of an effect (because it is coming from his HEART, his SOUL and is filled with LOVE. D X
By Christine, August 22, 2010 @ 2:35 pm
Hi Paul, I too will be buying your book and the cd. I love your voice. As Diane said hearing you telling your own story will be fantastic.

Sería posible que estuviera traducido en más de un idioma??
Verdaderamente sería increiblemente GENIAL!!:D
Todo mi cariño para tí y para Paul, que puedo decir?… admirarlo y agradecer todo lo que aprendo de mí misma, con sólo leer sus palabras… todo mi corazón y afectuoso abraso.

I very much enjoyed the story tasters on the website, along with the thumbnails of the rich and vividly-described array of characters frequenting the realms of Chrystallia and Beryl (and our inner worlds too). It has all the makings of a magical, insightful and timeless tale. I can see readers within a broad age-range not only being thoroughly well-entertained, but also able to engage, connect and perhaps be prompted to look and discover within.
I like the design and synergy of the website and hats off to whoever came up with the animated Chrystallia logo with its radiating beams of light. From what I’ve seen, Dave Zaboski’s amazing artwork seems to work hand in glove with the story and the contrast between monochrome and colour is a very nice touch. I’m not too sure about a few of the branded merchandise concepts, but it’s very much a personal reaction and I dare say that I may well not sit within the intended target audience(s).
Having had my appetite whetted by the appetiser, I look forward (but with patience ) to being able to tuck into the entire feast, when the time comes. I wish PMG all the very best with the book and hope it is met with wide-spread interest, recognition and understanding.

Hello Paul, Pam and Everyone,
I want to remind everyone that I said, or I thought I did, I am a direct individual. If you didn’t know that before, you do now. I am happy to share with everyone and particularly xtexan86, as to why I felt my comments were not part of the blog or not wanted.
First, I don’t believe my comments are earth shattering. Yet for me to be part of any group, I need feedback. If what I write is not responded by anyone, then I wonder if what I said is important or relevant. I have written often, and yes – probably too much at a time. Most of my comments went with no comment from anyone. I enjoy what everyone has to say. I also want, very much, to be part of the discussion. When I don’t get any comments, I wonder if I’m on another planet or just out in left field.
Marty and a few others have written directly to me and said they didn’t know why I felt this way and why I question if what I had to say was important. They made it clear that my comments do matter. I have taken everyone’s word and moved on. I write. I hope my comments are worthy of comment.
I will not get offended if what I write is criticized. I hope they are good enough to be considered. If my written word is offensive to anyone, PLEASE KNOW, I DO NOT INTENT IT TO BE. Yet, I want to address those issues in a non offensive way. If I learned anything in the past 20 years, I have NO control on how others feel or what they do. After I write and there are no comments and several days go by and no one says anything about what I write, I will share that feeling. That is why we are here – to share. I’m not here to listen to any one person – not even Paul. I love it when he comments – but I listen to everyone else. You guys are the ones who do most of the writing and commenting. To me, he seems to set the stage for discussion. I’m fine with that. It is important to me that what I write is worthy to those who read or post. I will only know that if I am told. It’s that simple.
PLEASE KNOW AND ACCEPT THIS ON FACE VALE: I love what is written. I want to know how each of you feels about what is posted – whether by me or everyone else. I don’t want to offend anyone. If my comments are not responded – every once in a while – then I will just read and not write. I did that before I started writing. That is all. Pease keep writing.
Now, during the writing of this comment, I needed to break p a fight between my dogs. I have been bitten. It is not a good sign but I need to go to the Emergency Room. I’ll check back later. Please, if you want to know why I say – whatever it is – please just ask! Please do so directly. It’s easier that way. Life is too short to do anything different. You all have great things to say. You have helped me move on in a lot of ways. Like Hilly’s comment of “walking with confidence” is life changing. At least it was for me when I walked into a Court Room on Valentine’s Day to deal with my husband of 20 years and the unpleasant issues at hand. Thanks for sharing with me how you feel. I hope I have answered you questions honest and directly. Have a good night or day – depending on where you are.

I am really looking forward to reading this book. I am hopeful that it is something that my students will enjoy. I have started a book club with them (10th graders) in which we read and promote reading at the school. It has always been my goal to get the kids to read more, because so many of them don’t bother. If the publishing date is May, there’s not too much longer to wait!
By Pam Meserve, April 9, 2011 @ 7:26 pm
It really is a wonderful book, Storm. Your students will enjoy it and discover a lot for themselves and about themselves in so many areas of life!!

Liège interview said it isn’t coming out until Xmas – was he just getting confused by the title I wonder…I mean the journo was so ignorant he thought Elizabeth Glaser died in 1988..
By sstormc, April 11, 2011 @ 1:58 pm
Well, good grief! I hope they were wrong!
By Pam Meserve, April 16, 2011 @ 2:51 pm
By hilly, April 16, 2011 @ 10:16 pm
maybe he thought that a translation would be out by Xmas…..
By hilly, April 17, 2011 @ 1:53 am
we can even pre-shop early on Amazon….
By Rachelle, April 17, 2011 @ 7:09 am
That’s great Pam, thanks for the heads up! Looking forward to the book and it will make for nice Christmas gift(s).
By hilly, April 17, 2011 @ 10:48 am
uh Pam….I got a 404 not found error every time I tried to go there.
By Christine, April 17, 2011 @ 2:48 pm
Hi Pam, For those of us on the other side of the pond over here will Chrystallia be available through Paul’s website or in England at all?.
By Christine, April 17, 2011 @ 3:40 pm
Ok thanks Pam.
By Rachelle, April 17, 2011 @ 6:26 pm
Great review Pam! Sounds great!
By hilly, April 18, 2011 @ 12:50 am
got it this time
By sstormc, April 18, 2011 @ 1:19 pm
Well, that review has certainly whet my appetite to read his book! I am looking forward to it, and to the meditation cd. I am also very much looking forward to Paul’s next blog! I was thinking, “great, now that I’ve gotten here, he’s quit writing!” but then I noticed that the last blog was written on the very last day of Jan., so it really hasn’t been that long. I’ll just have to be patient.
By Nora, April 18, 2011 @ 4:51 pm
Tienes idea si “Chrystallia…” se editará en Español?, y de ser así, cuando sucederá…?
En Buenos Aires (Argentina) a partir del 20 de abril 2011 se habre, como todos los años “La Feria del Libro”… donde se congregan escritores de todas las áreas(narración, ficción, poeticos, cuentos, etc. etc.)seria agradable que Paul pudiera estar en un Stand firmando su libro, y visitandonos en su faceta de escritor presentando el libro “Chrystallia & The Source of LIGHT”
Bueno Pam, sólo es un sueño para mi quizas, pero… porqué no preguntar? espero que la edición en español no tarde mucho.
Un beso para Tí Pam, y un fuerte abrazo a Paul y todo mi cariño.
