Subject: Plane Crash Survivor Releases Two New Books and Teaches Lessons of a Survivor
My name is Donna Hartley and I was the last survivor from my section on a Continental DC-10 plane crash bound for Honolulu in 1978. My intuition urged me to change my seat before boarding the flight and that decision saved my life.
The plane crash happened on March 1, 1978. On March 1, 2002, I was diagnosed with stage III melanoma, and I beat that. On March 1, 2006, I underwent open heart surgery to repair a faulty valve. I am a survivor and share what I've learned in two new books: Fire Up Your Life! and Fire Up Your Intuition!, both released by Authority Publishing in June, 2011.
In these uncertain times of change and challenges, each of us has to develop our own intuition and act upon it. With our economy, government, employment, and healthcare in flux, how do we develop our intuition and trust it? As an international keynote speaker and author, I provide concrete strategies for dealing with change and trusting your intuition.
I am available for interviews to discuss any of the following topics:
-What it's like to survive a DC-10 plane crash.
-The steps I took to survive the crash.
-What it's like to have a near-death experience.
-Why I waived my right to sue the airline and fought for safety regulations.
-How my mentor, George, taught me to develop my intuition.
-How to know when you should trust your intuition (instead of your ego) and take action.
-How to know you are making the best decisions for your life, especially in these turbulent times.
I have been an international speaker for 29 years, as well as a former Miss Hawaii and actress. I have been featured on NBC, ABC, PBS, The Learning Channel, New Woman Magazine and in The New York Times.

Fire Up Your Life!
This true-life Fire Up! series delivers timely inspiration along with timeless wisdom and teaches readers that success is paved with challenging learning lessons.
In these uncertain times, the human spirit yearns for hope and enlightenment so each of us may survive and thrive. The Fire Up! series recounts a compelling true-life journey, delivering timely inspiration along with timeless wisdom. Donna Hartley is crowned Miss Hawaii and her attention is captured by a kind and patient soul, George, who mysteriously prophesies that her success is paved with learning lessons. He relates to her in storytelling form that Donna must survive three life-threatening events if she is to fulfill her destiny. Is George a wise man, a mentor, an angel, or all three?
Fire Up Your Life! recounts Donna's near-death experience in a DC-10 plane crash at Los Angeles International Airport, which occurs directly after she expresses her desire to change her life or die. Trapped in the flaming inferno she receives a mysterious message questioning her actions on earth. She wills herself to survive and is the last passenger out of her section of the aircraft. With the steadfast help of her teacher George, the reluctant student Donna begins a journey of spiritual transformation, committing herself to change her fearful and unhealthy lifestyle. Her first assignment is to fight for improved airline safety regulations. Next she must conquer her destructive relationships with men. Moreover to become a successful entrepreneur she must master her fears.
Fire Up Your Intuition! finds Donna distraught in an emotional and financial crisis. George unexpectedly appears and bestows on her five mysterious envelopes that hold a 30-day assignment that he calls 'the gift of intuition. The banter and discussion continue between student and teacher as Donna works to acquire insight into her own intuitive awareness. Her faithful Himalayan cat, Sheba is by her side as Donna follows George's program step-by-step to learn to trust her feelings and act upon them to master the knowing. George predicts that when she completes her assignment, her dream to adopt a daughter will come true.
Fire Up Your Healing!, due out later this year, shows the sometimes rocky path on the passage toward family forgiveness leading to emotional maturity and the strength to heal. Donna travels from the tragic confines of her mother's post-stroke nursing home to the somber quarters of the judge empowered with deciding the fate for the bitter court battle in which her stepmother has embroiled Donna and her brother upon their father's death. George adamantly advises her to release her anger in order to survive. Could she forgive the alcoholism, the violence, and the indifference? This skill is now essential if she is to survive her stage III melanoma. But can she forgive herself and live to raise her 6-year old daughter? George mystically appears in the hospital to give Donna a shot of spiritual adrenalin and the courage to face down the deadly disease.
Fire Up Your Heart!, due out later this year, begins at the gravesite of her step dad as a heartbroken Donna deals with the eleventh death of family and friends in the past few years. Her nagging intuition forces her to consult a heart specialist and the prognosis is her worst fear: she must have immediate open-heart surgery to replace her failing aortic valve. Mariah, her daughter, now age 10, is the driving force to help her live. Donna's friends rally to lend her support for the delicate surgery scheduled for March 1, the same date of her plane crash and melanoma diagnosis. What are those chances? Donna must summon all her strength and hard won wisdom to survive. Would George spiritually guide her through this life-threatening operation? Has Donna learned her lessons so she can cheat death for the third time?
