Author Biography

Before working with spirits, Joellyn St. Pierre spent over twenty years in theater, performing in seven Broadway productions, including A Chorus Line and Pippin. While many of her friends suffered from AIDS, she studied death and dying, which led her to another twenty years as a death midwife, communing with unresponsive patients.

A lifelong spiritual aspirant, she learned the ancient Greek culture's rich history of communing with the dead under the mentorship of Dr. Raymond Moody and has also studied with the medium James Van Praagh. After a short sabbatical, St. Pierre experienced an event on the winter solstice of 2017 that led her back to spiritual work.

St. Pierre now resides in Virginia Beach with her husband, Richard, and their three dogs, Bodhi, Leela, and Nestor. With a passion for reading and education, she is always learning something new. She intends to travel more once teleportation is invented.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Could Anthony Newley Be My Muse? (Or His Story Never Ends) is an interesting work of self-exploration and New Age thinking penned by author Joellyn St. Pierre. Subtitled “Forging a Creative Bond with the Dead”, the work contains some mature themes, explicit language, and ideas that not all readers will be comfortable with. The author presents authentic experiences with after-death communication (ADC), despite having no previous mediumistic abilities, and proceeds to tell a memoir-style tale of her connection to the spirit of actor Anthony Newley and the results of this communication between the living and the dead. What results is an incredible and highly alternative view of life and spirituality which also provides guidance for other people on how to unlock this ability and allow the deceased to help them in their daily lives.

Author Joellyn St. Pierre has created a book that really has to be read to be believed, and whether you take it as fact or fiction, it is truly an inspiring work about the power of creativity and the very nature of spirituality itself. The narration is frank and honest, with the candid intimacy of a memoir-style work that allows us into a close personal connection with the writer, and with the incredible bond she explores between herself and Newley. The ADC element really lifts the veil on a spiritual concept which is new and intriguing to explore, and the technical elements of the book’s ‘how-to’ advice are well explained for those who are new to the idea. Overall, I would recommend Could Anthony Newley Be My Muse? (Or His Story Never Ends) to any reader seeking new information about the world beyond the veil.
