Reiki is a Japanese technique for reducing stress and promoting relaxation, administered by laying on hands based on the idea of an unseen life force energy that flows through every person. Reiki is based on the idea that if someone's life force energy is low, they could be more likely to get sick, while if it's high, they are more likely to be healthy and happy.
Kat Stiles grew up as a fan of super hero movies, and has always loved the idea of having super powers. With her novel, Connected, she wanted to capture the magic of super powers but to keep them as organic as possible, describing them as something just a little beyond what an ordinary human could do.
The book follows Em, as she traverses the challenges of high school in Cannondale, where her freshman year introduces her to all the cliques, annoying teachers and tough homework assignments of reality, as well as the surprising fact that she has super powers and doesn't know how to control them.
Throughout the course of the novel, Em's best friend Roz also discovers unusual powers, and Tommy, her secret crush, realizes that he can hear the softest whispers in class. Into this mix, a telepathic serial killer is at work, and only Em and her friends are able to stop him, but if they don't catch him soon, one of them could be his next victim.
Connected is available for purchase at Amazon: http://amzn.to/2cGhNfD
Kat said: "Although Em's healing powers are more super-charged than Reiki, Reiki was the original idea for the book and the inspiration behind all the healing scenes within it."
