Strange, unbelievable incidents that happen in every life, but how do we view them? Do we say 'imagination', 'coincidence', 'just one of those things', or is there perhaps something more? In this thought-provoking, self-help book of the so called 'paranormal', we seek to find answers to the unexplainable, and answers to the question posed in the title. This book is not about religious dogma or creed in any shape or form. It is about lives. The lives of ordinary people who, for one reason or another, have been touched by this 'unnamed something'. It is about their experiences - experiences that could happen to any one of us at any time, in any place.
A former professional musician, both teacher and performer, Mary Bowmaker has always loved writing, small successes over the years encouraging and inspiring her to write her first book A Little School on the Downs; a record of the life and work of a headmistress and her school in Victorian England. Is anybody there..., a book recording true experiences of the paranormal, is a subject close to her heart since childhood when she listened to the experiences of grown ups and especially her grandmother who was a natural medium. Since then, her love and interest in the subject has blossomed into serious research which has become the most fulfilling part of her life, along with her desire to pass on to others great truths and experiences which should be told. Mary Bowmaker lives in the North of England and in contrast to her 'spiritual' pursuits is her enthusiastic participation in physical activities such as walking, kick-boxing and power yoga.
