The Unbeknown : Who Came Here First, and Why are They Still Here?
With a science fiction leap of imagination, yet based upon well-researched historical facts - this enchanting tale of The Unbeknown tells of a benign alien civilisation; secretive beings who have survived on Earth for millennia. Some are hiding in underground warrens and some walk amongst us. They communicate by symbols and discreet inscriptions; all visible to the human eye, yet often unseen. These are extra-terrestrials who have infiltrated the normality of modern life with affable ease, yet their only desire is to gather up those who are lost and head back home. In 2011, the life of a young and talented stage magician becomes interwoven with the plight of the missing aliens. Plagued with a rare clairsentience ability, he becomes enveloped in the world of ancient Celtic legends and mystical beings. Pushed unwillingly into a paranormal detective mission, he also treads the sorry path of unrequited love. Over time, he gradually unravels his destiny, his biology and his connection to the far cosmos. Sacred scriptures, the creation of the human genome, lost biblical prophesies, extra-terrestrial conspiracies, demonic conjuring's and magic that can distort every law of physics - are all revealed within these pages.

About Sheila Mughal
I was born in the Lancashire mining town of Leigh, back in the days of black & white TV and when children played out, climbed trees, scuffed their knees and made dens. Enid Blyton was my heroine, and I have often aspired to write an adult version of "the secret seven." Some of us never really grow up... My father died when I was a baby, and so as a child I was raised by my Grandmother Florrie. She was a loving intelligent lady, and also an avid reader, who went through about 5 books a week. Every night she read to me, and so by the time I started school at 4 years old, I could already read, write and quote my 12 times tables off by heart. Thank you gran. With her encouragement, I have been writing books from about the age of 6. These were for my own entertainment and not for public consumption. It has taken me a long time, (and life has a way of creating other priorities to distract us), but eventually I decided I should publish. With a love of history, mythology, theology, genealogy, the paranormal, gothic mansions and anything that involves secret tunnels - I was destined to be a science fiction writer. I like to add authenticity to my books, by using well researched chronicles, and then scattering a thimble full of fairy dust to magic the facts into a story.
