"A book of wonder-spirit, ghosts, hope, mysticism, mystery. If you ever had instincts, premonitions, or felt you are out of place or feel you know things-that there is a whole world beyond, there's more magic in this world than there's supposed to be—I feel this book is for them. Especially if you're in the last one third of your life and think, 'I want to unlock the mysteries, I want some answers, I'm not done.'"
—Alice Osborn, author of Heroes without Capes

"Margaret Harrell's blending and merging the whole of a human being and beyond into the cosmos is astounding writing and what a lifetime Journey she has taken to arrive to this book. She is working with a whole new and different combined East-West and Middle Paradigm."
—Suzanne V. Brown, former VP, Exceptional Human Experience Network

"I've always found Margaret Harrell's writing wonderfully relaxing and well thought out. Keep This Quiet! IV is no different. I can just pick it up and slot myself in comfortably. With each book I find myself getting entwined in the words . . . The life . . . The emotion. The education. The peace. Her work allows me to breathe and feel."
—Martin Flynn, owner of

In Keep This Quiet! IV: More Initiations, Margaret A. Harrell dives deeper into the multidimensional world of visions, computer-PK (mental influence over the computer), divine guidance, Carl Jung, and science.

The story takes place in the ’90s in Tienen, Belgium, where assorted parapsychological phenomena accompany the death of her housemate. Quickly checking in with Hunter Thompson, she winds up at Owl Farm, then returns to her Flemish base. Initiations welcome her back and she goes further onto her path, which spans spirituality and science, Hunter Thompson, and the Indian guru Dhyanyogi-ji, whose tradition of Kundalini Maha Yoga she is initiated into. Many traditions join hands, to make “a book of wonder—spirit, ghosts, hope, mysticism, mystery,” writes Alice Osborn, author of Heroes without Capes.

Harrell is a three-time Fellow at MacDowell Colony for artists. After working three years at Random House in New York City, she married a Belgian poet, Jan Mensaert, and lived a decade in Morocco, then took a sharp turn into spiritual growth.

In Zurich she studied at the C. G. Jung Institute and had a dramatic "Confrontation with the Self," or as Jung termed it, "Confrontation with the Unconscious." Her "Love in Transition" series burst at the seams to absorb the jolts in consciousness that followed. In 2001 she moved back from Belgium to the U.S. and wrote her four-volume memoir, the "Keep This Quiet!" series—which begins with her experiences with Hunter Thompson as his copy editor for Hell's Angels and their romance and long-lasting friendship.

Her Belgian-poet husband and the enigmatic, brilliant, NYC poet/essayist Milton Klonsky round out the trio of influences she focuses the "Keep This Quiet!" series on. Currently she also continues to edit books, teaches meditation courses designed to enhance individual potential and self-discovery, and is a cloud photographer.
