That has been the theme of my life and maybe yours, too.
Without warning we get sucked into these crazy and frustrating circumstances that make us wonder what we did to deserve such bad luck. Then things settle down and we look back and say, “Ohhh. I get it. That had to happen so I could be shown a better direction.” In other words, everything happens for a reason.
But when we lose loved ones often there is no right direction. We’re just plain lost. And mad. And freaked out. How will we live without them? Can we somehow communicate?
That sense of profound loss and hope is at the heart of all of my novels, not because I’m obsessed with death but because I am convinced in life after it. I channel spirit every day and believe we are ALL capable of doing the same. It’s a matter of paying attention to the signs and symbols around us and having faith that our connections to family, friends and even pets are eternal.
You do hear their voices, feel their presence, smell their scent… that robin perched on the window sill is a greeting. Hello, it’s me and I’m thinking of you.
Recently I met the amazing TV medium, Theresa Caputo, for a magazine article I was writing and she was an absolute delight. But what I loved most was feeling her powerful energy. She actually made my GPS go haywire before our interview and my trusty tape recorder break when I got to her house. It validated my lifelong belief that our connection to spirit is real.
If you believe this too I know that you will love my novels. They are page turning stories filled with humor and heart that explore the many ways in which our loved ones stay close by. That’s why I hope you will read A LITTLE HELP FROM ABOVE, CLAIRE VOYANT, FATE AND MS. FORTUNE and DEAR NEIGHBOR, DROP DEAD (all from Avon/HarperCollins).
And now I am so excited about my latest project, THE MIDDLE SCHOOL MEDIUM. It is my debut novel for girls and I hope it makes them laugh, cry and feel great about themselves. The message is a plea to listen to the voice in their head and love who they are because they were sent to us for a reason.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to dream BIG!!! I did and it brought me to you.
Love, light and laughter.
