three stories by
Krista Markowitz




Jamie
Jamie
A friendly, imaginative and artistic eight-year-old who on earth loved to write her own stories and poems and illustrate them herself.




Gino
Gino
Mrs. Tipperwillow thinks of eight-year-old Gino as her “wild child with a loving heart.” His favorite things are amusement parks, exploring and flying fast.




Lateesha
Lateesha
An outgoing nine-year-old who loves sports, Lateesha is especially good friends with Gino. She admires him for his “go for it” personality.

Through the veil that separates dimensions flies a fabulously dressed, magical sort of cow to chronicle the afterlives of six children in her care. With her guidance, Jamie, Lateesha, Wallace, Yoshi, Gino, and Aaron learn to create anything they can imagine, and find friendship, laughter, comfort and answers to their deepest questions about life and afterlife. Mrs. Tipperwillow also explains about the age of peace that is coming to our planet, and the role of children in creating this wonderful change.


These imaginative tales will provide understanding and hope for children nearing transition and solace to their families and friends before and after their passing. But the potential audience is universal. Anyone who has ever wondered about what happens at the moment of death and thereafter or is interested in the connection between earth and spirit will be engaged by the children's discoveries.
