Synopses & Reviews
Suffering from world-weariness, former singer/songwriter Annie Kagan gave up her life in New York City and moved to a small house by the bay. While trying to figure out what to do with her life, her brother Billy died unexpectedly.
A few weeks after his death, Billy woke his sister at dawn. It's Billy, darling! I'm drifting weightlessly through gorgeous galaxies and I feel a loving, beneficent presence twinkling all around me." Was Billy real or just a figment of her imagination? In The Afterlife of Billy Fingers, Kagan shares her unprecedented journey into the mysteries of the afterlife. Billy's ongoing account of his celestial experiences is filled with transcendent wisdom, irreverent humor, and hope. The Afterlife of Billy Fingers will change the way you think about life, death, and the Universe.
Another time, Billy says, "If I could give you a gift it would be to find the glory inside yourself, beyond the roles and the drama, so you can dance the dance of the game with a little more rhythm, a little more abandon, a little more shaking those hips."
In his foreword, Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life after Life, explains the phenomena of walkers between the worlds, known to us since ancient times, but still surprising to way too many of us.

I cannot recommend it highly enough to everyone who is grieving the death of a child, spouse, parent, or any other loved one." -Bill Guggenheim, bestselling co-author of Hello From Heaven!

"I am telling everyone I know about this book. And I LOVE the clever word play puzzles he gives you, like setting down pearls in an elaborate puzzle, that allow you (and us) to confirm his journey. Thanks to both of you for this thrilling book. I barely slept so I could pick it up again." ─Richard Martini, bestselling author of FlipSide: A Tourist's Guide on How to Navigate the Afterlife
"I read The Afterlife of Billy Fingers in 90 Minutes...I could not put it down... what a great book, really one of the best in this genre." -Arielle Ford, bestselling author of Wabi Sabi Love and The Soulmate Secret
"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers is one of the best books I've read on the subject of life after death. So much of what the author describes jibes with my experiences of both being with dying people at the moment of their deaths and in two long, extended Near Death Experiences I've had myself. The book strikes chords of truth again and again and again.
The excellent writing and the story itself hold the reader's attention beautifully. Skeptics will keep reading to "find out what happens next." And whether you're a skeptic or a true believer, the book will powerfully engage you. Part of the book's premise is Annie's questioning whether her communication with Billy is real or her own craziness, and that mystery keeps us reading and seeking answers. We want to find out for ourselves what the source of this communication really is. Along the way, what Billy tells Annie is inspiring, enlightening, and insightful. The book works. It's a good read with an appealing and controversial message." --Hal Zina Bennett, author of more than 30 published books including Write from the Heart and The Lens of Perception
"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan is a wholly believable story that never loses its grounding in the daily life we all know. The voices of the narrator and her deceased brother never strike a false note. This is not a story that asks you to believe anything, but simply to listen with an open mind and heart. I think you will find yourself transfixed." --Rev. Susan Varon, Ordained Interfaith Minister
"Let Billy Fingers take you on a journey to the world which awaits you when you leave this earthly shell. Through Billy's sister Annie, he takes YOU on a voyage between the realm of possibilities and gives you a glimpse of how life in the spirit world is lived. The time has come to familiarize yourself with the amazing world of Spirit and Billy is your perfect guide." ─James Van Praagh, author of Talking to Heaven and Ghosts Among Us
Annie Kagan is not a medium or a psychic, she did not die and come back to life; in fact, when she was awakened by her deceased brother, she thought perhaps she had gone a little crazy
In The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There's Life After Death, Kagan shares the extraordinary story of her after death communications (ADC) with her brother Billy, who began speaking to her just weeks after his unexpected death.
One of the most detailed and profound ADC's ever recorded, Kagan's book takes the reader beyond the near-death experience. Billy's vivid, real-time account of his on-going journey through the mysteries of death will change the way you think about life. Death and your place in the Universe.
In his foreword, Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life after Life, explains the phenomena of walkers between the worlds, known to us since ancient times, and says that Dr. Kagan's thought-provoking account is an excellent example.
