The Touchstone Diary

"The Touchstone Diary” series presents fiction, based on historical facts and events, about the life of Jesus, Mary Magdalene and their bloodline. The author dug deep during her eight years of research and extensive world travel to discover some revealing possibilities regarding Jesus and Mary’s life together, including philosophies and teachings from years of Jesus' studies of other belief systems – Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam – before AND after the crucifixion. Along with her research, many parts of the book were “channeled” as the author was guided to write personal stories within the diary. Book

Three of the series is in process.


Book I - "The Red Thread"

     Michael Wilder makes an unusual promise on his deathbed to Miyah Sinclair, a mysterious healer of an ancient bloodline. Michael travels back in time through the portal of a primitive cedar box carved by Joshua (Jesus) as a gift to his bride, and connects with the healing energy and wisdom of Joshua.

   Meanwhile, Miyah shares secrets hidden in the pages of an ancient diary, protected throughout the ages by her generation of healers, the family of Jesus and Mary Magdalene (Joshua and Maryum). Written by women of Miyah’s bloodline, the diary shares emotional personal stories as these women lived through some of the most important events in ancient history, offering an alternative historical point of view from the feminine perspective.


Book ll - "Bloodlines and Promises"

   Miyah shares revealing stories with her daughter, Morgan, who is being prepared to be the next Touchstone carrier. She energy travels back to meet ancestral women of her bloodline and learns healing remedies from the source. Adventures continue as the Wilder family journeys to France and Scotland, including the Isle of Iona, searching for a cherished family treasure, a duplicate cedar box, carved by Joshua as a young boy, 2,000 years ago. Along the way they discover more family secrets that profoundly affect the outcome of their own lives, including a very different and alternative, yet widely documented, story of Christianity.
