Sharpe’s books are riveting inspirational thrillers written in honor of her daughter Kate and her husband Steve.
WILMINGTON, NC, February 21, 2020 /Neptune100/ — In a recent post on the ‘Tuesdays With The Angels’ section of her website, award winning author Jody Sharpe described some of the happenings that went beyond coincidence after the untimely death of her daughter Kate. Some of these events inspired her to begin writing novels about angels and their interactions with humans. Sadly, not long after, she also lost her husband and again experienced serendipitous encounters that were beyond mere chance. Now the angels on the writer’s shoulder have provided the stimulus for a new children’s book entitled, ‘When The Angel Sent Butterflies’. On her website, Sharpe describes some of these synchronicities:
“Kate’s memory had inspired me to write novels about angels and my life was filled with purpose and thanksgiving. Yet sadly I lost my husband Steve and wondered how would I handle another death of someone I loved? But a beautiful new message came. Was it another synchronicity happening? My son, Mike, gave me a birthday card with a jeweled butterfly on it. ‘You will get your wings and fly again soon,’ Mike wrote.
“And so inspired by his loving heartfelt card and the yellow butterflies on the bushes outside my window, I began to formulate in my mind the third novel in the Mystic Bay Series, Town of Angels. It’s a novel set in the psychic town of Mystic Bay where angels live as humans and love abounds. In the story butterflies are sent from Angel Ken, to calm and nurture his flock of humans. Some land on the shoulders and fingers of the characters changing their days to happy ones.
“And then a serendipitous encounter? What happened next was to me a miracle. This past summer Elizabeth called with news of a butterfly landing near and on her family as they sat on the steps at their apartment building in New York City. For one week in the late afternoon a butterfly graced them with its presence landing a few times on each of them. It landed on my son-in-laws’ finger, on Elizabeth’s shoulder and on the baby’s shoulder. A coincidence caught on their cell phones?
“I think not but a synchronicity, a happening of love, a testimony of finding heaven’s messages in the everyday. For I believe our world is awash with guiding angels. Some even come in dreams or send butterflies. For you see the most lovely part of this story is dear Elizabeth and her husband Seth named their baby girl Kate more then twenty years after Kate’s passing. I had my baby granddaughter, Kate, another Kate to love. A butterfly had landed on her shoulder just as I’d written in my latest novel.”

Maggie and Noah embark on a journey to find our world is all awash with angels.
