Marie Rickwood said her latest book was “a great tug on my imagination.”
In Rules for Living on Earth, the Nanaimo author’s third book, an unbelieving banker is struck and killed by a vehicle and unexpectedly begins ascending to Heaven. Along the way he’s judged by a set of criteria of which he’s been unaware.
“He has to pass the rules for living on Earth if he’s going to meet his creator, so it’s a metaphysical, spiritual-type book,” Rickwood said.
She will be presenting Rules for Living on Earth at Nanaimo Chapters on March 30. It’s her second reading of the book, which was published at the end of last year.
“You always hear of people talking about afterlife experiences and a light at the end of the tunnel,” Rickwood said. “Well, I came up with a different concept.”
WHAT’S ON … Marie Rickwood reading at Chapters on Saturday, March 30 at 2 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
