Sylvia Martin was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1937. After World War Two and her father Jack’s discharge from the Australian Army, the family moved to Wollongong where she was educated and started her career in nursing at just seventeen years old. It was in Wollongong that she also married her husband Michael, who worked for the New South Wales Police Force, rising to the rank of detective in the Criminal Investigation Division. After their four children left home, Sylvia and Michael moved to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland to retire. Sylvia has been a widow for many years now and after her Near Death Experience in 2005, she has given many talks on her amazing journey. In this, her first book, she relates these events and wishes to share with you the knowledge to realise Who You Really Are and What Your Purpose in Life is really all about.
