Because of the strong connection she felt to Gaia, our Mother Earth, Monika Muranyi studied Applied Science at Southern Cross University, Australia, where she received a B.A.Sc. For the next fifteen years, Monika worked in a number of Australian and New Zealand national parks, where she communed deeply with her stunningly beautiful surroundings. Following a spiritual awakening, she began to explore the deeper mysteries of Gaia and the universe.

She was inspired to write The Gaia Effect while living in Santiago, Chile, a place where the Earth's kundalini energy vibrates strongly. She has since published three other books that, together with the first, form the Kryon trilogy. The three subsequent books deal with the human Akash and spiritual evolution in Lemuria, guided by the wisdom and teachings of Kryon as transmitted by Lee Carroll, the original Kryon channel.
