Knowing It Ahead of Time

Last week, as I was standing in the grocery line, a little book on the rack caught my eye: Complete Idiot's Guide to Psychic Awareness. I have been toying with the idea of creating a psychic heroine, but I've never delved into the subject. So--being the impulse buyer that I am--I bought it. I figured $2.95 was not too much to invest.

This woman's premise is that we all have psychic abilities; that some people have simply honed their skills to a finer degree. To a certain extent, she has a point because everyone has had the experience of knowing who is on the phone before you answer it (without the aid of caller id) and other similar situations.

But can a person train herself to have bigger and better psychic abilities? It will be interesting to see what she has to say.

What are your favorite books with psychic characters?

Oh, I absolutely love "Dream Man" by Linda Howard. The heroine in there is Marlie and she is such a survivor because of her psychic talent. Also, Linda Howard's "Now You See Her" with Sweeney. She's a painter who sees ghosts and who is unknowlingly painting the killer of her gallery owner. She's funny, snippy and wonderful! And, those are just off the top of my head!

I love the Arcane Society series by Amanda Quirk. They are pretty special.
