Welcome to psychic week! I’m so excited to be part of this celebration of some of my favorite characters in the paranormal genre. Not that I have anything against vampires or shifters, or elves, wizards, fae—you name it—I love them all. But all of these characters tend to exist in a world apart from ordinary reality where you’re pretty much expected to check your disbelief at the door.
There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but sometimes I want a book set in a world not that different from our own—with just a touch more magic. A book where the line between fantasy and reality is a little bit blurred.
For Marsha Quinn, one of the main characters in my Oberon series, being psychic is no picnic. Practically everyone she comes in contact with thinks she’s a mind-reading witch. When I wrote the Oberon series I was inspired in part by true stories I’d heard over the years about ghosts or angels or astral projection, of impossible coincidences, dreams that predicted the future or wild hunches that turned out to be true. So many stories, told to me by so many people, that could lead me to only one conclusion: whether we accept it or not, we’re all just a little bit psychic.
