Nelle Mack of Atkinson will be at the Atkinson Public Library from 5 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29, to sign copies of her recent book, “Ancient Paths.” Copies of the book also will be available to purchase at that time.

Copies of Nelle Mack’s book will be available to purchase at $17 each at the book signing on June 29 at the Atkinson Public Library. Copies of the book (paperback or EBook) also are available on the author’s site: www.nellemack.com.

Nelle Mack describes herself as “a very spiritual person,” and that trait led her to writing her first book, “Ancient Paths.” She will have copies of her book at a book signing from 5 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29, at the Atkinson Public Library, 109 South State St.

Mack spent the last three years educating herself about the spiritual practices and places of the Celtic religions…”I have researched the spiritual sites of Ireland and Scotland over those three years,” she said. “I love learning all spiritualities and keep adding more topics to my ever-expanding list of new things to master.”

She is a Reiki Master and Energy Healer and said, “I love helping people let go of trauma and pain to experience freedom. I believe that we all make the world a better place by the energy we put out.”

At the end of December of last year, Mack began thinking that she needed to write a book and she off-handedly mentioned it to her husband, and said, “A week later, a friend told me that I needed to write a book. It felt like a sign and a push from the Universe, so I began playing around with ideas in my head.”

“My creative juices were flowing and I could hardly contain all the ideas and stories filling my mind,” Mack shared. “Two weeks later, I had the story line started and had finished the book two months after.”

Mack and her husband, Andrew, have five children ranging in age from nine to 15 – Ginny, Rose, Drew, Lily and Ben. Mack home schools the children.
