In TDE, Erma Grant, Sandra’s Grandmother, plays a key role in her childhood development. Erma is an accomplished psychic who often uses her kitchen table to connect to the spirit world. My good friend and mentor Adele Tinning was the inspiration for the many psychic dimensions in TDE.

When I was a college student, I became an avid reader of Carlos Castaneda and throughout my life have been a strong believer that there are certain geographic locations that have a special connection—‘power spots’ if you will.
In TDE, Averill Harriman’s locomotive engine in Key West and the one in Central Park in Lawrence, Kansas serve as power spots for Sandra. In real-life, I loved to play on the train in Lawrence when I was a child. And today, on the cliff looking over the ocean at SeaCliff Beach, there is a field that I visit most every day and consider it to be a power spot—for me at least.
The Psychic Beat Goes On
In my next novel MET-CHRON Sanctuary which takes place thirty-three years later, Astra Sturtevant receives a message delivered through the very same table by Sandra’s daughter, Madeline who has inherited Sandra’s paranormal abilities.
