About the Author
Florence Scovel Shinn (1871 - 1940)
Florence Scovell Shinn (1871 - 1940) was an artist-turned spiritual teacher, healer and writer who lived in New York. She is best known for her first book "The Game of Life and how to Play it" (1925), which includes quotes from the Bible and real-life anecdotes to explain the author's understanding of God and man.
Florence Scovel Shinn may be considered a member of the New Thought movement, as her writings follow in the tradition of Phineas Quimby (1802 - 1866), Emma Curtis Hopkins (1849-1925), and Charles Fillmore (1854 - 1948) and Myrtle Fillmore (1845 - 1931), co-founders of the Unity Church.
Scovel Shinn was also a contemporary of William Walker Atkinson (1862 - 1932), James Allen (1864 - 1912) and Emmet Fox (1886 - 1951).
Scovel Shinn writes that ignorance of or carelessness with the application of various 'Laws of Metaphysics' (see below) can bring about undesirable life events. (Quote from wikipedia.org)

Florence Scovel Shinn (September 24, 1871, Camden, New Jersey – October 17, 1940) was an American artist and book illustrator who became a New Thought spiritual teacher and metaphysical writer in her middle years. In New Thought circles, she is best known for her first book, The Game of Life and How to Play It (1925). Shinn expressed her philosophy as: The invisible forces are ever working for man who is always ‘pulling the strings’ himself, though he does not know it. Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract. The Game of Life, Florence Scovel Shinn.
