About the Author
James Jones is a former ambassador to Mexico.

Charles Boyd is the pen name of the author. He is a free thinker, investigator, researcher, and a writer on paranormal activities. He had his tertiary education at Cambridge University in England from where he obtained a Master's degree in economics and law. Thereafter he specialized in business management, and worked as a senior manger for many years. His interest and experiences in matters pertaining to the paranormal dates back to 1960. However, it was only in 1982 that he realized that his calling was in the area of investigation, and presentation of what he considers to be the truth pertaining to the human consciousness, which has been known for thousands of years, but suppressed by vested interests and negative motivation. In that year he realized that for more than a quarter of a century, he and his friends had been experiencing paranormal events in their lives, and like millions of others were not in a position to relate it to reality as they were not aware of what he considers to be the truth. In 1983 he had a dream where he was told that he would be writing two books namely, 'Joy Of Sharing' and 'Joy Of Giving'. Hence this book has the title 'Joy Of Sharing'. This manuscript has been written through 'spiritual and inspirational writing', where the writer received thought projections from his spirit guide and mentor, Rhana. Many months after the completion of the manuscript he realized, when doing research at the State Library in Sydney, Australia, that in a previous life he belonged to a tribe called the Kuhunas, in Hawaii, who were the first to speak on Parapsychology.Hence his prior knowledge of this subject. He believes there is more to life than what meets the eye, and seeks to open readers perspective to alternative thinking. Mr. Boyd believes we are a product of choices we have made, and what we will be tomorrow is determined by the acts of commission and omission today. He obtained a Master's degree in economics and law from Cambridge University. He is a Justice of the Peace for NSW in Australia. He also holds certifications in A.M.B.I.M.(Eng.) M.Inst.S.M.M. (Cey.), A.N.Z.I.M.(N.Z.), A.A.I.M.(Aust.) He has been recognized by Worldwide Who's Who in New York for excellence in paranormal research. He is also a Worldwide Branding's Contributory author. Recently he was elected to Who's Who of Professionals and Executives by the Continental Broadcasting Network in the United States in recognition of his accomplishments.
