A tormented, passionate woman with one piercing grey eye, Kristopher Silverheart is a major thorn in the side of the Elect, Earth’s increasingly oppressive religious rulers.  Once one of their own, she is now an Outcast, one of the Fallen, someone who has strayed from the Just Path and must either repent or be destroyed. Unbowed and undaunted, Silverheart captains a band of Outlaws who make regular forays from their refuge on the planet Hafwei to liberate as many Outcasts as they can from persecution, imprisonment and death.

Constantly by Silverheart’s side is the beautiful and ethereal Heaven, her beloved companion, with whom she has a mysterious and unbreakable bond. When Heaven is kidnapped, Silverheart embarks on a reckless solo rescue mission into the heart of the enemy’s stronghold to bring her back.

In the first book, Silverheart is a kind of vague theist/esotericist, but the series will progressively take her from a religious outlook to secular humanism.

2017 (I hope!)

A dark tale featuring the heartbroken Dr. Gabriel Foster.


This is when I began, slowly but surely, to move away from religion:

I wrote in Blessed: How to be a Joyful Mystic that I believed in Mystery. And I still do, more than ever in fact. But do I believe in the existence of a Judeo-Christian type of parental creator god? Not anymore. Life after death? If something occurs, I don’t know what it is (though I definitely don’t believe in hell or heaven). I’m satisfied with this. I don’t see any point in worrying about it.

I’m just filled with joy and wonder. Life: what a ride! What an amazing thing it is. This is my definition of mysticism: being captivated by life. Wearing silly socks. Laughing with loved ones. Gazing at the sky. Holding a dried leaf and smelling its earthy odor. Learning. Discovery.

~Logospilgrim, November 9th 2014

I’m a secular humanist and atheist now. I don’t believe there’s anything after death, and that’s fine. Life is more than enough. I’m enough. Life is wondrous exactly as it is.

Me and religion:

Blessed: How to Be a Joyful Mystic is an iconoclastic ode to Love and Life. In her latest work, Logospilgrim shares her heart, her experiences, her joy. She questions, knocks down, raises up, reinterprets, embraces, creates. She serenades her loved ones and the Universe.

She relates how she left behind a more confined type of spiritual outlook and embraced eclectic syncretism.

She writes that Professor Snape is like the Whomping Willow… He is the staircase “that led somewhere different on a Friday.” He is the Department of Mysteries.

The flawed master: lessons Professor Snape taught me

Professor Severus Snape, a role model? Could the bitter, sarcastic and harsh man be a good teacher? Could he be worthy of imitation? In her mystical essays, Logospilgrim proposes that he is. Although Professor Snape frequently chose to behave in a manner that was harmful to him and those around him, the author believes that his virtue outweighed his weaknesses, and that both his virtue and weaknesses are a source of wisdom and consolation to those who are progressing along the path of devotion. He is, indeed, a symbol of true faith.

Bring forth the best robes: a spiritual understanding of Severus Snape

Repentance is not a once and for all gesture. It is a state of the soul, a constant rededication, a determination to rise after each fall. It enables us to see love, whether it is as statuesque as a tree or as frail as a seedling. Through repentance, the awareness of our own weaknesses allows us to view the weaknesses of others with immense compassion and to appreciate the value of their offerings. In St. Makarios of Egypt’s words, “does the man who plants a vineyard immediately gather grapes? Or does he who sows seeds in the earth at once reap the harvest?” Using Professor Snape as a template, I wish to extol the best of everyone.
