The Reluctant Psychic

When I posted my 15 favorite paranormal memoirs a few months ago, I left out one very important book: Suzan Saxman's The Reluctant Psychic. I originally borrowed this memoir from the library several years ago, which is why I didn't have a copy on my shelves to jog my memory. But I've now rectified the… Continue reading The Reluctant Psychic

And while, in each of those places, I've briefly described some of… Continue reading Publication day! My memoir on love, loss, and synchronicity is out.

Phone calls from the Beyond?

The Journal of Scientific Exploration has just published my essay review of a recent book on a highly intriguing phenomenon: phone calls that seem to be coming from dead loved ones. This phenomenon--which might seem laughable at first--is surprisingly prevalent. And there's a lot more to it than you might expect.

The Couple Who Met in a Near-Death Experience

I recently had the great pleasure of discovering Dr. Scarlett Heinbuch's new book Waking Up to Love, about the way she met her husband during a shared near-death experience. You may have never heard about shared death or near-death experiences, as they are not nearly as well known as near-death experiences (NDEs) as a whole.… Continue reading The Couple Who Met in a Near-Death Experience
