Imagine finding out that your childhood memories were a lie told to you by your own mind to protect you from the daily horrors you faced.

Author Debra Roinestad always had an intuition about her life—a small voice that protected her and kept her as safe as possible—but it wasn’t until a near-death experience that she understood the importance of her spirit guide's voice.

Over time, Debra suffered violent tremors, during which new memories came to her in flashes: physical and emotional abuse by her family, being drugged into submission when her cries were too loud, pain—and light.

Debra learned she had “dissociative amnesia,” a condition she went through as a young girl, retreating into a safe place in her mind and forgetting about what was happening to her, only to have the memories come crashing back later in life.

Protected by the Light is Debra’s story of pain, but it is also her story of survival, and of finding the light—a light she hopes will one day lead each of us to find peace.

Debra Roinestad earned a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and has designed covers and interior art for major book and magazine publishers, including Van Nostrand Reinhold, Penguin USA, Popular Photography and Consumer Reports. She has also studied psychology and gerontology and was awarded honors from the Omicron Delta Kappa leadership honor society for her academic work. A member of the Screen Actors Guild, Debra has numerous stage and television credits, and holds a degree in advanced Reiki as well.

After surviving a near-death experience, Debra followed her intuition and began creating photo collages based on the themes of healing and resiliency. Since beginning this phase of her life, she has been interviewed in print and on the radio about her artwork, which has been featured in galleries and museums across the United States.
