Grace Allison Blair, a Christian Mystic and award-winning author, draws from spiritual studies in her writing, notably “Einstein’s Compass,” a fictionalized account of young Einstein aided by a mystical compass. Her inspiration stems from chaos in her youth, guiding her love for storytelling and emphasis on transformative themes in her work. Blair’s book garners interest for potential TV adaptation, and she finds resonance with characters like Jessica Fletcher from “Murder She Wrote.” 

Grace Allison Blair is a modern Christian Mystic and an award-winning self-help and motivational author who has assisted thousands to find their spiritual wisdom to solve everyday challenges. She describes herself as “a prime example of someone who pulled herself up by her bootstraps and took notes along the way.” When she turned to writing, she chose subjects she was intimately familiar with—and their scope is surprising.

Why did you choose to write in your particular [field, genre, or sub-genre]?

Throughout my adult life, I became a serious student of the spiritual. I discovered that, frequently, psychological principles and practices lacked completeness, but adding the missing spiritual component could fill the gaps. My approach was always to see practical applications for what I uncovered in the mystical. It was through immersing myself in this field of study and experience that I came up with my idea for my book, Einstein’s Compass.

Where did your love of [books, writing, reading, and/or storytelling] come from? Growing up, my life was in constant chaos. Reading gave me an escape to people, places, and stories that kept me in a world of my own. My imagination came alive with possibilities.

Are themes an important part of your writing, or do you allow the story to unfold them?

The human condition of relationships, conflicts and how to transform struggles into positive change.

Where did the idea come from to write Einstein’s Compass, and what inspired you to write it?

Young Albert received a compass from his father when he was a boy, which gave him the inspired vision to discover his miracle theory. The compass and his quest made me create the title and a compass that was more than a direction finder rather than a vehicle of the supernatural, which Albert uses to discover his world changing theory.

I have always thought of Einstein as a fascinating person. He lived during the horse and buggy days, when the light bulb was the most advanced technology. So how did he come up with his miracle theory, given the circumstances of his life?

What if Einstein was a star child from Atlantis?

What if Albert was trying to remember what he did as a priest-scientist during his lifetime in Atlantis.

My book of fiction follows his biographical history from age six to twenty-six and adds a new level of mystical spirituality that he had help from a supernatural compass and mystical beings who assisted him in his heroes’ journey and his miracle theory. Einstein believed we must go beyond what we can see and measure in the physical world. My book, “Einstein’s Compass” goes beyond what we know and adds an alternate history and possible fictional explanation for how he came up with his miracle theory and changed the world.

What is the future of your novel, “Einstein’s Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure”?

Jane Ubell-Meyer at Bedside Reading introduced me to Hollywood producer Rocky Lang, who has arranged for Rob Hedden, writer-director-producer, to write the pilot screenplay for a television series.

What literary character is most like you?

I am not sure of the literary character. There was a television show “Murder She Wrote” with Angela Lansbury. I wondered what it would be like to be Jessica Fletcher, the main character who had a life of writing books and traveling. So, I became a writer who loves to travel.

Is there any person you credit for being your inspiration for reading and/or writing?

My husband, John Blair, has been supportive and helpful. We often sit at the kitchen table and discuss the books as they develop.

What Authors have inspired you over the years and what is it that drew you to them?

Ray Bradbury is my hero of science fiction fantasy. Whenever I get stuck with my writing, I read one of his stories. James Michener and Ken Follett for their historical fiction and how to layer a story.

What’s something interesting, fun, or funny that most people don’t know about you?

On my 50thbirthday, I planned and performed a belly dance in a middle eastern restaurant in Dallas. Great fun.

What is your favorite quote?

My life is easy, pleasurable, safe and, most of all, FUN!

Do you have a mantra for writing and/or for life?

Dare to dream, listen to your intuition, be kind, be gentle with yourself and be courageous in your endeavors.

“Einstein’s Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure,” Excerpt

As Albert dangled a brass object on a silver chain, Johann’s eyes grew large. “Wow, what is that?”

“It’s a compass. My father gave it to me. Have you ever seen one before?”

Albert held out the gleaming brass compass with the twelve sparkling gems. So, Johann could see it better. He opened the top and rotated the compass. “See how the needle always points north, no matter how I move the case?” His bright brown eyes twinkled as the mystery of the unknown captured his soul. “Someday, I will understand why it does that.”

Albert closed his eyes and held his precious gift to his chest. “Oh, I love my compass, and I love my Papa, who gave it to me.” The compass tingled against Albert’s chest. From inside the compass, a shimmer of light burst, then radiated out about ten inches all around Albert’s hand. Albert felt the unexpected warmth and opened his eyes to find a rainbow projecting from the gems. Above the compass floated a three-dimensional number 33. Johann, struck with wonder, squealed, “Look at that!”

Albert threw his hands up in surprise, dropping the compass onto the straw floor.

The boys sat mesmerized for what seemed like an eternity.
