PUBLISHER’S
PROFILE

Here is what others are saying about
Raine’s books:

Raine

“As a natural skeptic about most things
spiritual, I found Rainedrops From
Heaven a surprisingly uplifting experience. She transports you into her
world with a matter of factness that is
neither incomprehensible or daunting.”
Carol, Gulf Harbour

Author of
And Rainedrops Fall Down
My Creeks
Rainedrops From Heaven
To say that Raine is a unique individual would be an understatement. Living
in New Zealand, she has had a fascinating career, having worked as a
clinical hypnotherapist, osteopath, and
marriage celebrant. She gives psychic
readings to individuals both in person
and online. She also offers specialized
clinical hypnotherapy sessions for
those wishing to visit their past lives
and make contact with their spiritual
connections.
Raine earned diplomas in Sociology,
Nutrition, and Nurses Health Perspectives and Practices from Massey University, followed by a Degree in
Osteopathy from the Osteopathic College of New Zealand. She began her
career in the 1980’s progressing from
a beauty therapist to qualifying as a
Clinical Hypnotherapist Counselor.
Later she ran a Beauty Therapy
School and it was the first one to meet
New Zealand’s Qualifications Association’s requirements setting a benchmark for others.

Raine’s first book, “And Rainedrops
