It is incredibly exciting being in, right at the beginning of a new talent's rise in the industry. I experienced just such a moment recently when I was offered the opportunity to read Spirit of Prophecy by J J Hughes.
I very much wanted to introduce this novel to everyone and give you an insight into the story and the author.
spirit of prophecy - the debut novel from j. j. hughes
What would you do if you discovered you’re engaged to a murderous psychopath about to go serial?
J.J. Hughes explores the lengths to which we will go, to keep the past from overshadowing the present and destroying the future. Spirit of Prophecy is a highly original, cutting edge, metaphysical crime mystery with a breathtaking paranormal twist.
Years ago, a terrible atrocity occurred in Apache Indian territory in New Mexico, and now the players take up their positions to execute a horrific revenge. If you liked A.G. Riddle’s The Atlantis Gene you’ll love this .
Evil awakens, and Rosetta Barrett, a psychic detective, must settle old scores and heal ancient wounds. She has the highest international security clearance with the Elite Paranormal Intelligence Services [EPIS], but she can’t tell her family or the courts what she really does. Divorce was hell. She lost custody of her children because of her paranormal beliefs and abilities, and now she’s fighting to get them back.
Prominent American event rider, Juliet Jermaine, loses her Olympic horse, Gothic, and his rider, Isabella, also dies in a horrific unprovoked road rage attack. Barrett is investigating Isabella’s murder. She has a suspect but gathering sufficient evidence to nail a conviction is proving elusive.
If Rosetta fails to convict the criminal and end the horrific cycle of revenge and retribution, the past is set to explode into the present with dire and explosive consequences.
Time is running out…
Read Spirit of Prophecy and get on board a metaphysical roller-coaster from the future to the past and back!

Nearby to Cottingley is the author's Favourite Place: think Hovis ad's , steam trains, cobbled streets, try Tetleys real ale in Haworth, which is famous for the wild moors and the Bronte sisters - who wrote 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Jane Eyre' which are two of her Favourite Novels , along with 'Pride and Prejudice' [Jane Austen] and 'Gone with the Wind' [Margaret Mitchell]. Feisty heroines and fill-their-boots heroes, win hands down every time?
From her early teens J.J Hughes was a passionate horse owner and regularly competed in Affiliated junior showjumping competitions. In it's day West Yorkshire produced a lot of England's top show jumpers, true Northern grit we guess? Or where there's horse muck, there's brass! In her debut novel 'Spirit of Prophecy' there's an Olympic gold medal event horse called Gothic [aka Gothic novel's, a much loved genre] and his feisty owner/rider Juliet Jermaine. Age 17 the author wrote a humorous pony novel which was bashed out on a neon orange little type writer [thank heavens for Word Processors, spell checking] and bye-bye Tippex and White-out- some things disappear and are not mourned or missed.
J.J.Hughes was blessed and inspired by two incredible English teachers,[ who back then were a husband and wife team] Paddy and Vanda, and thanks to Paddy, a brilliant photographer [a passionate, Irish man with big beard, bowler hat and rather eccentric black flowing cape] she developed a life long love of film as a medium. Later, after leaving school, she studied English/American Literature with Film Studies at the University of East Anglia [U.E.A.] Norwich, and subsequently an MA in Creative Writing at Surrey University.
Career wise, after a year or so teaching English abroad she accidentally landed a job in the City of London in an Investment Bank but after three amazing children came along, she quit the City and headed for the Surrey Hills and trained as a Life Coach and Passion Test Facilitator, and went on to co-author a No 1 Best Selling Spiritual self help book called 'Inspired by the Passion Test' and in the vein of giving back all profits go to charity.
J.J Hughes is passionate about horses, the paranormal, New Age spirituality, self-development, travel, karma and reincarnation, crime...justice..... in no particular order. She's an experienced Coach/Mentor, Passion Test Facilitator and Soul Re-alignment specialist and topics currently piquing her interest are Spirituality and Science where she's hoping to see more inter-disciplinary co-operation, to solve the great remaining mysteries of life including man's origins.
