About the author (2006)

Jonathan Womack's life story is fascinating and his lectures make for an experience listeners do not soon forget. The fact that 9/11 is his birthday adds intrigue to this natural-born storyteller.He talks of growing up in 1960's Indiana, when at the age of 8 he was literally scared to death and had to play dead to survive a terrifying encounter. This "play dead" trance triggered his first out-of-body experience, when he discovered he could exist free and apart from his physical body via a second "soul body." These episodes continued for several years as did his isolation, for the subject held much stigma. In 1999, Womack wove his experiences into the fabric of a "superhero vs. terrorists" romantic adventure.Jonathan strives to raise awareness about this unconventional subject and has received hundreds of emails from those he has inspired. He is employed by Harvard University's Graduate School of Education and writes in his spare time. His second novel, "The Dogman Cometh" is being released in June 2007.Upcoming thrillers include; Ram I Am (the sequel to A Cry For A Hero) Soul Descendent, Make a Right, The Dolphinius Effect, and Hwarang.
