JP Nicolais

JP nicolaisWhile growing up in Pennsylvania, where sunshine was scarce, he started reading Arizona Highways magazine and discovered that there was a brighter world waiting for him. At the same time, he discovered that there was an inner world that was also beckoning him. As student, he was forced to write but never developed a love for the craft until he began reading some of great masters: Shakespeare, Graham Greene, Iris Murdoch, Charles Frazier and many others. He also met several people who had a gift for writing non-fiction: a supervisor, a business partner and a brother-in-law. During his career, he worked in non-profits and as a business entrepreneur but never saw himself as an author. Here’s he became one.

For years, he suffered from intermittent insomnia and kept searching for a way out. About 10 years ago, while living in Virginia, after his ‘100th’ experiment produced a one-time success, he optimistically tried it again. And voila, it worked. So he kept using it and realized that it was available whenever he needed it as ‘sleep on demand’.

When contemplating his 3rd ‘career retirement’ in 2013, he was looking for a way to pay forward the many blessings he’d received in his 7 decades of life, and decided that sharing his sleep technique was one way to do it. After self-publishing his book with some help, he engaged Xlibris as a professional publisher. Using imagination and visualization, Simple Sleep Solutions offers a way to help reduce people’s suffering and perhaps will lead them to deeper spiritual awareness as it did for the author.
