Internationally Acclaimed Author Releases Inspirational Children’s Book Series

February 28, 2013

Ayn Cates Sullivan, Ph.D is the inspirational author behind Sparkle and the Gift, the first book in a series of modern fables for “children of all ages.” It was just added to the Table of Honor at the London Book Festival and dubbed an “illuminated modern day treasure” by Howard Wills of Higher Consciousness, Inc. Sparkle and the Gift depicts the story of a young girl named Sparkle who remembers that she is a being made of radiant light. After sharing this discovery with her mother Alice, Sparkle is told the story of “Kachina’s Gift,” a fairy tale designed to remind us that everything we need is already inside of us.

In Sparkle and the Gift, Ayn addresses the importance of humanity’s relationship with nature, and how nurturing this relationship can improve the self-esteem and well-being of children and parents alike. “I think it’s a really important message for this time, I want kids of all ages to remember their inner light never goes out.” She is releasing her forthcoming fable, Sparkle and the Light, around Easter. The sophomore addition to the series, Sparkle and the Light takes on bullying and how kids can maintain their sense of self in the face of adversity.

Sparkle and the Gift has received diverse reviews. One humorous reader likened her writing to “Carlos Castaneda for children without all of the drugs.” In contrast, the esteemed spiritual teacher Mirabai Devi remarked, “Sparkle is a gift, not just to children, but to the child and spirit within each of us. She is our reminder to stay connected to our souls, our purpose, and to the divine light whose love and healing can be found in every aspect of life, down to the blessing of a flower.”

Ayn holds a master’s degrees in spiritual psychology and a master’s and doctorate in literature from Columbia University and King’s College London. She has combined her higher education with her spiritual education in color and light healing to produce a prolific variety of compelling spiritual literature. Her mission in life is to help end the patterns that cause pain and suffering and assist in liberating others so that they can live essential and joyous lives. The Sparkle series is published by Infinite Light Publishing in Santa Barbara, CA and is available on Amazon and in bookstores internationally.
