own true story of how he responded to his father\'s terminal diagnosis
became the narrative for the film, in which Peter appears as himself.
Shockey has been a filmmaker for over twenty-five years, a talent he
discovered immediately following a profound & personal spiritual
encounter. He has enjoyed a long history of writing & producing TV
productions and uplifting books. Early in his career, his interest in
visionary spiritual topics led to a trademark style of animated
special-FX cinematography. Guideposts magazine nicknamed his work
\"Heavenly Visions for Earthly Eyes\" (article).
His highly rated documentary *Life After Life*, which appeared on
Discovery\'s TLC, won a New York Film Festival award for its sensitively
written exploration of the near-death experience. It was distributed
internationally and translated into a dozen languages. His next project
for TLC was *Angel Stories - Parts 1 & 2,* which investigated
contemporary accounts of angelic activity.
In addition to high ratings, *Angel Stories* sold over 60,000 videos
through the Reader\'s Digest video catalog. Following the
stepping-stones of popular interest in spiritual topics, TLC
commissioned two more programs entitled *Stories of Miracles - 1 & 2,*
which surpassed the successful ratings of the previous shows. He
subsequently wrote, produced and directed the Hallmark Channel series,
*Miracles, Angels & Afterlife.* Peter has associate produced several
other documentaries, all in the inspirational genre.
Peter\'s film work depicting the near-death experience has appeared on
Oprah, which accompanied the interview with Betty Eadie, writer of
*Embraced By The Light.* Oprah also touted Shockey\'s book *Reflections
Of Heaven* in a show about miracles, featuring one of the amazing
stories in the book.
Peter is a seasoned talk-show guest, who has been interviewed on CBN\'s
The 700 CLUB, and many other television and radio talk shows. He has
served as a guest lecturer on the topics of miracles, angels and
afterlife experiences for National Hospice Organization and other
organizations and churches. Peter and his wife Stowe are raw food
advocates, and co-wrote the book *The Hallelujah Diet,* which hit Amazon
#1 in the spring of 2006.
Shockey\'s TV investigations led to his Doubleday inspirational
hardcover *Reflections Of Heaven,* opening the door to a new genre of
inspirational writing---bridging the gap between the traditional CBA
sector and the mass-market body, mind & spirit sector. He and his wife
Stowe also co-authored a second Doubleday book; *Journey Of Light:
Stories of Dawn after Darkness,* released February 2007.
