Update on Power Steering!


Daniel Wetta Publishing (https://danielwetta.com/books-by-daniel-wetta-publishing/)  announces with pride the release of author M. J. Scott’s new book, Power Steering! A recent Excellence Award recipient from Women of Distinction Magazine online, M. J. Scott (USA) is the pen name of Marilyn J. Shafer-Asprey, who previously authored the books Journey into Fulfillment and Time on the Turn by Xulon Press.

Power Steering compiles an insightful series of vignette-style articles that illuminate the power of intuitive feelings in our quest to find the roads leading to our best destiny. In this book, Marilyn makes her readers wonder how their lives would be different if they truly trusted a higher power to guide them. What would it be like to tune into a force that works for the benefit and well-being of people in a universe so complex that one can easily feel that his or her significance does not even register?

Throughout the book, the author uses a car analogy to show what happens when we let higher power accompany us on life’s journey. We stay behind the wheel, she shows, but the “power steering” of intuition makes our passage much less tiresome. She argues that intuition is a beautiful and subtle messaging from God. Our learning to recognize it and trust it allows us to make the choices in life that lead us to our most blessed destinies. Through this collection of poetic-narrative meditations and anecdotes in Power Steering, M. J. Scott rolls out the panorama of her own life’s enrichment when she lets intuition take the wheel.


Marilyn studied education at Manchester College, earning her BS in Education, followed by her MA in Mass Communications at Norfolk State University. She completed all but her dissertation in the doctoral program of Education Administration at California Coast University.  A retired gifted students teacher who began her career working at Dr. Albert Schweitzer Elementary School in Anaheim, California and 20 years in education in the public school systems of two Virginia cities, Marilyn has also spent years with her own photography business and philanthropic work. In 2015 she became co-founder of The Writer’s Council, an organization serving to encourage aspiring writers to achieve their dreams to become published.

First Review of Power Steering!

Power Steering is creative, descriptive and beautifully done. The book reminds me of special places and times in my own life. At times you feel it could have been written about you! It steers you right into the writer’s mindset as Ms. Scott was writing the book.  Her beautiful prose touched me and made me feel as if I were right beside her in the passenger’s seat; seeing and feeling her memories as she wrote.  In the process, you may even learn a little about yourself. It was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be uplifted.”  Connie L. Buechele, reviewer and classmate of M. J. Scott.

The author’s two previously published books,  Journey Into Fulfillment and Time on the Turn by Xulon Press, are available for sale online at Barnes and Noble.
