about Psychic Closet
225 word bio:
At the age of seven, Toby lost her best friend in a car
accident. Three months later, Marcia peeked over a cloud and said she liked
her new world. Toby’s family dismissed the episode as mere imagination, and
she grew up distrusting her own perceptions.
Unable to reconcile this and other psychic experiences,
such as precognitive dreams and seeing astral forms of living people, she
became a lifelong student of the paranormal. Her personal library contains
over four decades of volumes from Bridey Murphy and J. B. Rhine in the
Sixties to current studies by the Institute of Noetic Sciences and the
American Society for Psychical Research. Her dream journals span the same
time period and serve as resources for her life and work.
Repeated psychic experiences forced Toby to learn some coping strategies.
She sat in development groups and experimented with techniques like
psychometry, automatic writing, and dream analysis. As she came to a peace
about her nature, she wanted to share what she’d learned to help others end
mistakes, self-doubt, and concerns about their sanity.
Toby taught high school speech and drama and college English. Now her
primary interests rest in understanding her psychic abilities and writing
projects that incorporate that learning. A mother of two and
grandmother of three, Toby lives in Arizona where she serves as president of
Arizona Authors Association.
