"Don't let them make a god out of me, " Jane Roberts told her husband before she died. As one of the most important psychics of the twentieth century and the author of the Seth material-which had already sold millions of copies-her fear was not unreasonable. In this revealing memoir, writer Susan M. Watkins sees to it that Roberts, her friend and mentor, is presented not as a saint or a god, but as a complex human being. Through the many varied people who knew her-from her first husband to the young "devotee" who visited her nearly everyday before her death; from those who loved her most and those who didn't-Watkins reveals a person whose beliefs allowed her to create the highly original Seth material and also caused her to suffer from debilitating health issues throughout her adult life.For any one interested in "channeled" material, human psychology, or the power of our beliefs, Speaking of Jane Roberts is a powerful, multi-dimensional memoir.Susan Watkins's is a former newspaper journalist. She writes in many genres and her work has been published in many national and local magazines and newspapers. Speaking of Jane Roberts is her third published book.
