The Afterlife Therapist

Following his death Aiden Lovejoy finds himself in a strange but wonderful world—a vital, busy, challenging environment with great joy beckoning. There is much work to be done, however, and the progress that “the dead” are invited to make can stretch over eons. Aiden, a family therapist in earth life, picks up where he left off. Alongside the beauty that surrounds him are hellish zones where disfigured characters choose to live, and their suffering calls out to him. But he has troubles of his own, and souls from higher worlds inspire him to reach higher.
The laws of this world, its differences from the afterlife scenarios of the world’s religions, and its rationality and ‘amazingness’ stand out. All that happens to the novel’s characters is supported in a general way by evidence. The details are of course fanciful, but the world in which surviving souls are embedded owes far more to research than to my unaided imagination. Something like this is the world I think we will all enter, whether Christian or Buddhist or atheist or whatever, when we die.

As I see it, we are all pilgrims on an infinite march.”
