Everything happens for a reason

How many times have you heard that said? Do you ever think, “What a coincidence that I met that person right now!”? Imagine if this were to happen to you every day. This is the life of “Influence” experienced every day by Julie Salisbury, Founder of Influence Publishing Inc. and her senior editor Nina Shoroplova.

Attracting local writers who are passionate about sharing their life experiences to “Influence” the way we all see the world creates a community of “wisdom keepers” who learn from one another.

Nina is so fascinated by storytelling that she was already capturing its power in a book—Trust the Mystery–when she joined Influence Publishing’s community of editors, administrators, and authors in 2013. Trust the Mystery provides personal examples of how we gradually align closer to our wiser selves. Helping transform Influence’s writers into published authors, Nina valued how they were touching and enriching her own journey. She began integrating some of their stories into her book.

Inspired by asking questions, sharing quotations, and trusting the quantum wisdom that is available to each of us, Trust the Mystery was penned and will be launched as a celebration of the combined wisdom of Vancouver women. In true collaborative style, other “Authors of Influence” will share the book launch stage with Nina as she weaves the stories together in a beautiful narrative about the power of “trusting the mystery.”

This is not Nina’s first published book. Cattle Ranch sold over 40,000 books when Douglas & McIntyre of Vancouver published it in 1979. That book told the intriguing story of Douglas Lake Cattle Company from its conception as a “cattle venture” that fed those building the railroad across Canada, through the days of cattle rustlers, outlaws, and failed markets, to its position as Canada’s largest ranch.

Six decades of contrasting environments have enriched Shoroplova’s life—on three continents, in the heart of cities and in cattle and sheep country; through life-challenging diseases and perfect health. Growing through self-expression, Nina also enjoys singing, acting, and pursuing a spiritual path. Her journey has taken her through a wide variety of teachings, from the bible to I Ching, texts old and new, various trainings, courses, workshops, and readings.

Nina has taken her success as a published author and used her unique editorial skills to polish the life stories of those who cross her path. It was “pure coincidence” that she became the Senior Editor for Influence Publishing when Salisbury was seeking a special kind of editor who can work with mostly first-time authors who have important wisdom to share.
