Tia Salingre-Williams, Interview #195

Your Name: Tia Salingre-Williams 
          Where you live: 
          Cliffside Park, 
           New Jersey, USA
What you do as a vocation or avocation? 
I'm an author of spiritual books. My latest novel is The Lapponia Scriptures, a mystical story of love and adventure. I try to help as much as I can homeless and abused animals. A few years ago, I also wrote a small book to help.
 Your two favorite books: Per Andres Fogelstrom (Swedish author). He wrote a series of four books.
Your two favorite songs: Bette Midler: Wind Beneath My Wings. Josh Groban: You Raise Me Up. (Many more but you only asked for two.)
Why you are interested in spirituality? Ever since I was a child, it's been with me. Over all these years, it's been growing. Many things has happened to make it stronger and real.
          Your favorite quote"A thing of beauty is a joy forever." I got this message from the other side and don't know whose it is.
Your favorite web
Your hero? (Many!) Mother Teresa and my own mother who at an early age became paralyzed. Always kind, sweet and never ever complained. Loved me unconditionally always.
          A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? 
         To have more quiet time to be still and meditate and pray.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?" 
Even though I lived here in New Jersey for almost 40 years, my heart is still in Helsinki, Finland, where I was born. But in my dreams when I sleep, I go back there so often and for that I am so grateful.

The Lapponia Scriptures: A mystical story of love and adventure is in development as a Hollywood movie at Atophill Films.
