Heading for the Light, by bestselling author Colm Keane, reveals the truth about what happens when we die. The ten stages we go through at death are outlined for the very first time. They establish conclusively that the journey is a warm one and is not to be feared. Based on five years of research, the author has drawn from the real-life stories of people who have temporarily died and returned to life. Among the stages are the departure of the inner essence - often referred to as the soul or spirit - from the body, following which it travels on a journey suffused with peace, through a tunnel-like space, to a border or boundary, where the former loved ones are met and a "superior being" is encountered. Those who are interviewed in the book also give their insights on what we need to do to prepare for the afterlife. They additionally speak of the profound feelings of love they return with from their extraordinary journeys. This definitive book provides all you need to know about what we face as we head for the light.

The Beatles Irish Concerts chronicles the Fab Four's riotous, entertaining and historic visits to Ireland in 1963 and 1964, at the height of Beatlemania. Based on over 200 interviews, this book brings you backstage at the Adelphi in Dublin and the ABC Ritz in Belfast in 1963, and also features the Kings’s Hall concerts in Belfast in 1964 – painting a never-before-told story of the days Ireland shook to its foundations when ‘Beatlemania’ came to town. Award-winning journalist Colm Keane has interviewed the fans, the autograph hunters, the support bands, the police, hotel and cinema staff, the promoters, the press, airport employees, medical personnel, along with Beatles’ staff and George Harrison’s Irish cousins. He spoke to the screaming girls who fainted and suffered convulsions while attending the shows. They describe how they cried hysterically, pulled their hair out, tore off clothes and complained that their heads were bursting apart. He graphically describes how riots erupted on the streets and how both cities were like war zones. The author has also interviewed stars including The Searchers, Adam Faith, Brian Poole, Peter Jay of the Jaywalkers, the Kestrels, the Vernons Girls, the Brook Brothers, the Remo Four and many others.

'What happens when we die?' is the question answered by award-winning journalist Colm Keane in his sensational book Going Home, which contains the most comprehensive descriptions ever provided by Irish men and women about life after death. The No 1 bestseller features interviews with over 60 Irish people, many of whom have died. Through the use of modern-day resuscitation techniques they have been restored once again to life. On their return they have brought back wondrous stories of journeys to the other world. Most have travelled through dark tunnels, entered an intense brightness, been welcomed by deceased family and friends, and encountered a superior being. The majority have felt a profound calmness and serenity. Virtually all have been marked forever by these journeys. Along with relating stories of near-death experiences, out-of-body travel and death-bed visions, the author has discovered old accounts in ancient Irish manuscripts which mirror the stories being related today - these are contained in the book. He also examines the latest scientific evidence.
