Book Cover The government may know much more about UFOs and ETs than they let on…. In fact, they may be working closely with them!

“With Raechel’s Eyes authors Helen Littrell and Jean Bilodeaux have turned an important page in the unfolding drama of the alien agenda.
The case they present could not be more timely or more relevant. Raechel’s Eyes should be required reading for anyone who takes the subject of alien abduction seriously at all.”

    —Sean Casteel for UFO Magazine

“I wish to recommend Raechel’s Eyes in the strongest possible terms. This is one of the more arresting books I have ever read in the UFO field.
A MUST READ for anyone who wants to be informed about the
amazing developments behind the scenes in the saga of government interaction with the Intergalactic Council, and the decades of quietly facilitating curious Star Visitors walking among us virtually undetected.”

— Dr. Richard Boylan, Director,  Star Kids Project, Ltd.


Volume 2 looks like its going to be good!  :)
I can't wait to read more! :)
I hear Marisa died though, sometime in 1990.
It's sad to get attached to a character and have these terrible things happen like they do.
It's even worse when the characters in the book are all real people.
It's just sad to get to know somone and then find out they were gone even before you ever knew them. "Raechel's Eyes" is one of the most powerful books I've ever read! — Raiden, an avid follower of the free email serialization

Raechel’s Eyes (Wild Flower Press) is a true story of Marisa’s experiences sharing an apartment with her unusual college roommate, as told by her mother, Helen Littrell, and UFO investigator Jean Bilodeaux.
Marisa and Raechel were two young women who didn't fit in — Marisa was legally blind and needed assistance living on her own, while Raechel seemingly had no past, talked with an odd inflection and ate a strange diet delivered to her home by odd men in black suits. The two students lived together for about six months in northern California in the early 1970s. They seemed to be perfect roommates, becoming good friends, but slowly Raechel's strange lifestyle began to arouse frightening suspicions in Marisa, which led her to conclusions so incredible that she feared telling anyone, for fear that they would think she was crazy.

After a series of very unusual and disturbing events, the man claiming to be Raechel's father revealed that he was an Air Force Colonel who was involved in a top-secret experiment being conducted from a base called Four Corners in Nevada. The Colonel said that he was authorized by the National Reconnaissance Organization through the Air Force's Aerospace Technical Information Command to adopt the human-alien hybrid Raechel and let her try living a normal life as a college student.  

Controversial and engaging, Raechel’s Eyes reads like a Sci-Fi classic, yet for many, including behavioral scientist and retired psychologist Dr. Richard Boylan, who wrote the preface, the events are not fiction. In fact, they actually “provide an accurate picture, minus the usual disinformation about what really goes on below the surface of the heretofore-undisclosed Four Corners base, which is sister to and apparently north of the better-known Area 51 facility in the central Nevada desert.” Boylan explains that the experiences depicted in the book closely parallel information about the underground activity at Area 51 that was leaked by former military personnel.

Marisa died in 1990. Realizing there had to be more to the events than had been revealed, Helen Littrell in 1995 engaged the services of UFO investigator Jean Bilodeaux. Beginning in 1998, under the supervision of psychotherapist and hypnotherapist Dr. June Steiner, Helen underwent a two-year-long series of hypnotic regressions that revealed a family history of alien interaction that had not been considered before. It also revealed a connection between Helen Littrell and the Colonel.

Raechel’s Eyes is presented in two parts. Many of the events in Part I were reconstructed from Littrell's memory, yet much of the information she received she believes was transmitted telepathically to her by the Colonel. Unable to explain why the revelations didn't disturb her at the time, Helen had no idea the pivotal role she too played in this very bizarre experience until she underwent hypnotic regression. Part II chronicles years of investigative research, providing a summary of what was learned during the investigation and includes full transcripts of some of Helen's oftentimes emotional, traumatic, and revealing regressions.  Also included are interviews with friends and family who knew Raechel, along with photographs and illustrations that corroborate Marisa’s and Helen's incredible experiences with this odd young woman.

About the Authors:

Helen Littrell is Marisa’s mother. She operates a medical transcription business and serves as a freelance editor and consultant for a major medical publisher. She has also authored six medical terminology books. Littrell currently lives in a rural area of southern Oregon.

As a child Littrell was captivated by strange lights in the night sky. It wasn't until she began hypnotic regressions following the death of her daughter Marisa that she began to understand the depth of her own involvement and the role she had with Raechel long before her daughter and Raechel became roommates. Littrell explains that her on-going paranormal experiences and extraterrestrial encounters “leave no doubt in my mind that meaningful synchronicities exist to show us the way to a much broader life experience than most people can ever imagine. The paranormal has played an enormous and very important part in my life ever since I first saw the lights in the sky as a child, and it continues to this day. What these experiences really are, I cannot say. I don't know what their purpose is, except perhaps to prove to those of us who are willing to believe, that there is more to this existence than can be explained away as weather balloons, airport beacons, and the seemingly ever-present planet Venus. I do believe, however, that they underscore the fact that we are not alone in the universe.”


Jean Bilodeaux is the primary investigator for this case and has worked with Littrell since 1995. A freelance writer and newspaper correspondent, Bilodeaux was a former schoolteacher and entrepreneur before she began investigating UFOs in 1992. Since that time she has interviewed more than 250 people who have seen them and has investigated more than 25 cases of cattle mutilations in rural northern California and in southern Oregon, where she lives near Cedarville, a town of 600 people. Bilodeaux reports that “Hardly a week goes by without the report of another unexplained sighting of a UFO.”

Comments about Raechel's Eyes

"Perhaps we have been given a brief glimpse of a not-too-distant future in which hybrids like Raechel will be commonplace and standing shoulder to shoulder with us. We can only wonder if we'll ever get used to looking in their eyes."
--Sean Casteel, UFO Magazine April-May 2005


"In Raechel's Eyes Helen Littrell and Jean Bilodeaux have written a fascinating account of an occurence in Helen's life that reads like a novel except the story is true. Her legally blind daughter Marisa rents an apartment a short distance from the college she is attending, but needs a roommate to assist her. The school counselor finds Marisa a roommate whom she feels is just right for her. Thus we are introduced to Raechel, an unusual girl who is allegedly a human-alien hybrid who always wears sunglasses. A deeper level of the story is revealed as we are introduced to a very secret government program in the recovery of alien spacecraft and alien entities. Whether one believes that we have visiting alien life-forms who are abducting humans and producing hybrid children or not, we cannot ignore the significance and impact this program will have on all of terrestrial humanity if and when this is all authenticated. Researcher, abductee, or just one who is interested in the possibilities, you owe it to yourself to read this book."
--Bill Hamilton ,AstroScience Research


"I was completely mesmerized by this story. Raechel's Eyes celebrates the independence of the human (and hybrid) spirit. Helen Littrell and Jean Bilodeaux have written a book from the heart with honesty, integrity, and flair."
--John McLaughlin, Buttercup Films


"I wish to recommend in the strongest possible terms Raechel's Eyes. I have just finished reading the review copy and it is a jaw-dropping book. After reading it, the only thing I could say was: "WOW!!!" I sat down and read it non-stop, finishing at 2:00 A.M. I like to think that I am by now blasé, having read everything there is to say on the UFO subject. I typically yawn when people breathlessly send me something to read. Raechel's Eyes is different. I can honestly say that it is one of the more arresting books I have ever read in the UFO field. For an informative, moving book on the struggle of a youngish Air Force Colonel to come to form a friendship with a Zeta-human hybrid, and the implications of this for the future of Earth, do not fail to read Raechel's Eyes."
--Dr. Richard Boylan, psychologist


"Raechel's Eyes by Helen Littrell and Jean Bilodeaux is a wonder of reporting. It takes a very non-sensational look at a very sensational story and refuses to blink even when the story takes turns that the authors know will not be believed by people with no experience in the fields it covers. I feel that it is very important at this time in our history to know about these things and to try to understand them. This volume will reward the 'old hand' as well as the newcomer to these ideas. Highest recomendation!"
--Lawrence L. Shippen, Amazon reviewer
