June Austin

Agent: myself

Box Hill, United Kingdom

I was born in Surrey, south east England in 1965, where I still live, with my partner, Coran. I always knew that I wanted to write but it was not until my mother died at the end of 1999 that I had the chance to realise this dream.

My book began as a thesis for a crystal therapy course that I started in March 2000. I chose crystal skulls as my subject, as I was at that time, guardian of several of these fascinating objects. As I started to write, I found that the more research I did on skulls, the more links I found with other areas of interest, until it became clear that this was to be book, linking all these different subjects together. I never did end up practising as a crystal therapist, and looking back, I now believe that the only reason I ever did that course was in order to write this book. It was finally published in June 2006, with a second, updated issue published in May 2007.

I have a lifelong interest in ancient mysteries and spiritual philosophy and studied the history of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, as well as human origins via Birkbeck College in London.

I have several articles published, in various magazines and on the internet. I also act as editor for my local community newsletter, Boxhill News. I have appeared on both British and American radio and also Korean television. I am a regular speaker at St Michaelís non-denominational church in Ewell, as well as various discussion groups throughout the south-east.

In addition to my writing, I also have a great love of travel, and the outdoors, having visited 26 countries around the world. I am most at home though visiting my favourite retreat of Lundy, a small island in the Bristol Channel.

Interests: Personal growth and spirituality, science fiction (especially Babylon 5). I am passionate about vegetarianism, and love to travel, having visited 26 countries around the world. My favourite destination is Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel.
