Mary Harrison

After the publication of The Children That Time Forgot in 1983, Mary and Peter went on to write a successful trilogy of books about the paranormal. In addition to TCTTF they also wrote Mystic Forces - Out of the body experiences and Spinechiller - True Ghost Stories from around the world. Mary and Peter wrote twelve books together including a series of commercial hobby books. Mary also penned The Eye of the Daruma, a book about a Japanese girl and her life adventures. Later titles included The Ladies' Man, about her favourite novelist, the famous Thomas Hardy. Mary made several popular appearances on TV & radio discussing supernatural phenomena. Notably, when appearing on ITV's This Morning in 1989, the volume of phone calls was so overwhelming, the viewer response jammed the ITV switchboard. Mary was also a featured psychic consultant on LBC Radio for three years during the 1980s with broadcaster Pete Murray. Peter organised a national tour of radio and TV stations for Mary, including an interview on the famous 'Late Late Show' on RTE in Dublin. Mary passed away in 2002 after a short illness and is survived, and greatly missed, by Peter and their five children. Peter started, aged seventeen, as a trainee cameraman and film editor at ITV. In 1960, as London's music scene was experiencing rapid change, he opened his rock music agency College Entertainments Ltd. in Archer Street, Piccadilly. Artistes Peter worked with included Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Who, David Bowie and Rod Stewart. Peter continues to work as an author and producer. In 2014, an adaptation for screen was undertaken and Peter has collaborated with the Scottish film director and cinematographer John Charles Brownlie to produce a feature film pilot. It's called simply Child Time Forgot and is based on the theme of the book. Work is currently underway to develop the feature length film, bringing the poignant subject matter of the best-selling book to the big screen. Child Time Forgot is online Summer 2014. My interests: The original idea came to co-author Mary Harrison when she observed her youngest son, Leon, trying to pick flowers from a floral pattern on her bed cover. The infants actions seemed so quirky and amusing that Mary was prompted to write a letter to the Woman's Own magazine which was subsequently published. Mary quizzed if other mothers had experiences similar 'odd' moments with their little ones. The word 'odd' was the keyword that triggered an amazing reaction and Mary, whose address had been published with her letter, was overwhelmed with letters from parents reporting accounts of reincarnation. From this, the idea for the book The Children That Time Forgot was born. Mary & Peter Harrison spent over a year thoroughly researching leads. The anecdotes and stories developed organically as they gathered new evidence and established facts. Amongst the thirty fascinating accounts they unearthed, one story features a young girl from the North of England. So young she had not travelled outside of England before and was too young to read yet she recounted, with chilling accuracy, visiting her Grandmother in Dundee on the fateful night in 1879 her train was swept away when the Tay Bridge collapsed. Cynics would of course be quick to question the validity of such a story but when the girl's family recollections were checked out, eye witness accounts of the family she described, events leading to it and records matched up. The book's primary aim is to present children's stories in a neutral, non-judgmental way and let the reader decide. All the stories are spontaneous and all contributors offered their stories voluntarily. The Children That Time Forgot was published in 1983 in USA, Japan, France, Netherlands, UK & Ireland. With the Kindle edition, new generations of readers have the chance to explore and debate the challenges of reincarnation.
