THE PORTAL is the true and startling disclosure of respected British writer Patrice Chaplin’s initiation into the mysteries of Rennes-le-Château. Following in the footsteps of those before her, among them, the famed priest Bérenger Saunière who rose to cult popularity due to modern-day bestsellers such as Holy Blood, Holy Grail and The Da Vinci Code, Patrice embarks upon a secret alchemical pilgrimage involving strict purifications of mind and body and a deadly journey they prepared her for, all of which unveils the sacred and prehistoric purpose of what is now Rennes-le-Château.
PATRICE CHAPLIN is an internationally renowned playwright and author who has published more than 26 books, plays, and short stories. Her most notable work includes Albany Park, Siesta, which was made into a film staring Jodi Foster and Isabella Rossellini, Into the Darkness Laughing, Hidden Star, Night Fishing, and Death Trap. Patrice resides in London.

Patrice Chaplin's recent memoir The Portal: An Initiate's Journey into the Secret of Rennes-le-Château details the mysterious pre-Atlantean stargate sought after by Howard Hughes. Picking up where Patrice's previous memoir 'City of Secrets: One Woman’s True-life Journey to the Heart of the Grail Legend' leaves off, 'The Portal' discloses Patrice’s personal journey through this very real stargate.
In 2003 'City of Secrets' was in the process of being published in the UK. Jose Tarres, real-life custodian of the Holy Grail, great friend to remarkable talents such as Salvidor Dali, Jean Cocteau, Umberto Eco and Simone de Beauvoir, and forever the love of Patrice’s life, had suffered a near fatal heart attack. With Jose then in his seventies, the power of death as a silencer threatened the survival of his society’s guarded knowledge.
Patrice had thoroughly researched Jose’s documents and testimony with his permission for the writing of 'City of Secrets'. But upon its completion, Patrice confessed she still did not fully understand the puzzle revolving around the legendary, yet very real, golden cup. “So what was the secret behind the secret?” Patrice asked. With simple resolution, Jose said, “You have to do what they did in every century, the initiates. You have to do the Journey.”
Under the guidance of Jose’s teacher, one of the few true living Kabbalists, Patrice embarked in 2004 to ‘Tread the Seven Stars Under the Great Bear’. Through activating the eleven sacred sites along the French/Catalan border, Patrice journeyed detachment, death, and rebirth. Patrice lived through Mt. Canigou’s great secret, a pre-Atlantean portal, a gateway into other times and dimensions.
Recently Patrice was made aware that 'El Americano', a shadowy figure she had heard in passing since her youth, was in fact the famous playboy adventurer Howard Hughes. Now having traveled the portal herself, Patrice is continually being approached by individuals wishing to offer previously untold pieces to the puzzle. Catalan priests, Freemasons, famous pilots, and even previous NASA employees are seeking Patrice out with vital proof and testimony. The implications are startling, with widespread effects.
