I'm Kristi Saare Duarte an award-winning and Amazon best-selling author of spiritual novels THE TRANSMIGRANT and THE HOLY CONSPIRACY. Although I'm not religious, I write spiritual fiction exploring the lives of Jesus and his disciples, basing the stories on fact rather than fiction. I developed my expertise on the subject by studying ancient scrolls and historical scriptures, including the Nag Hammadi Library, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Josephus Flavius’s Antiquities of the Jews. See a sample list of research sources here.
I call myself a modern day nomad, and think of myself as a true cosmopolitan. I grew up in Sweden, raised by Estonian refugee parents, and have lived in six countries across three continents. I've also visited more than 80 countries across the world.
My outlook on life changed forever when my parents died in a ferry accident. This catapulted my spiritual development beyond just sensing spirits. A few years later, I happened upon the renowned spiritual channel Alex Murray in New York City, and he taught me how to channel spirits. I'm also a certified Reiki healer and Soul Realignment practitioner, which has greatly influenced my world view, my faith, and of course also my writing.
I believe in living life to the fullest and facing/overcoming any fears. I'm all about trying anything new, so challenge me! I've tasted deep fried crickets and bamboo worms in the Chiang Rai market. I've travelled across West Africa in steaming hot, rusty, overly crowded buses, I've traveled down the Suriname River in a dugout canoe, and traveled to the desert village of Agadez in Niger despite the terrorism threat. I want to be brave. Take Risks. Live.
I published my first novel, THE TRANSMIGRANT, in 2017, and THE HOLY CONSPIRACY in 2020. Both books aim to highlight how all religions are linked, and that they all stem from the same root: love your neighbor as yourself, treat others like you want to be treated, and be kind.
I'm currently working on a psychic cozy mystery series.
