Remembering Olympus: Challenges Us To Use The Power Of Our Mind To Create Our Own Reality
Dallas, TX, April 27, 2015 – Good news for all those who look around at their ordinary humdrum life: there is more. At the heart of Remembering Olympus (Koehler Books) by Royce Murcherson is the belief that one life is not your only life; love is real and eternal, and we are capable of creating our own reality through the sheer power of mind.
“We humans are capable of accomplishing magical things when we truly understand ourselves,” says author Royce Murcherson. “I wrote Remembering Olympus for people who want to broaden their understanding of the universe, our place in it, and our purpose for being here.”
Part mystery, part magical, Remembering Olympus is a story of ‘life after life,’ tangled destinies, and the creative power of love and jealousy. Aaron Payne is a typical urban professional running away from his impoverished past. Seemingly by coincidence, he meets Miranda Reed, a beautiful gentrified heiress. Though their relationship is awkward, he believes she is the key until unforeseen events throw his life into upheaval.
When his path crosses with an enigmatic publisher, Claire Vinson, they become entangled in a mystery as Aaron begins to remember pieces of another existence that pull him into a maze of shifting time and past lives.
Prophetic in tone, Remembering Olympus is a mystical revelation, peeling back the layers of certainty, challenging perceptions of reality, and asking, “Are humans more than mere mortals?”

Diane Donovan, Editor of California Bookwatch: “Remembering Olympus is hard to neatly categorize: part magical adventure, part mystery, and part timeslip saga about other lives and other worlds, this straddles the line between several genres – and does so with good balance and finesse…A healthy dose of new age thinking and an affinity for sagas which, like the classic Cloud Atlas, invite self-examination and inspection of belief systems will lend to an appreciation of the divergent threads in Remembering Olympus…readers will find this story a compelling exercise in self-realization and possibility; all dictated not by the gods, but by very human choices.”
