Would You Ask To Be Psychic?

Today I'm delighted to welcome Crymsyn Hart back to my blog after a two-year gap. In August 2014 we met her Reaper (click to find the post), but today we'll meet the author herself, as the Reaper rides again. And this time Crymsyn is answering a question from this curious reader...

How does a real psychic feed into writing about a fictional one? 

Welcome Crymsyn 

How does a real psychic feed into writing about a fictional one? What an excellent question.

I never woke up and asked the gods to be a psychic. That just kinda happened on its own. I used to read professionally for a number of years while in college and a bit after. I still do it now and again if asked, but it’s not my main goal. Mostly for friends. Being psychic is like having a radio in your head on all day long. It just depends on how high you turn up the volume knob. I can never shut mine completely off. So I would say the volume in my head is down to a 2 or 3. If I get focused on something it can go down to a 1. If you had to put a label on me I’m a Clairvoyant, Empathic, Medium.  What does that mean?

It means, I can see the future, feel what others feel, and talk to the dead. Every psychic gets their information differently. I get information via pictures in my head or hearing voices in my mind that sound like my own thoughts, but they aren’t. Makes me sound crazy, doesn’t it? I’m not. I’ve been examined.

So with all of this going on in my head and around me, why not transfer it over to writing about characters who are psychic. They say write what you know. I try and write about the experiences I have or how it is I get information. At times it is difficult to find the correct words to put the feelings onto paper, but I think I’ve done a good job. Many of the experiences of my main characters are fictional but some are based on fact. I’m going to let you guess which ones.

About Death’s Revival:

Becoming a grim reaper was right up my alley. I enjoyed being dead. I helped souls crossover into either Heaven or Hell with my fellow reaper, Than. For two years, I enjoyed my life and then the killings started. Psychics were being murdered at haunted sites and souls disappearing.

Someone was tampering with the fabric of the universe, trying to draw something evil into this world.

To do that, the killer needed the souls of the psychics and the ghosts he could gather to open the doorway. I was charged with saving those souls and find out who the serial killer was. Yeah, being used as bait was definitely not my first choice, but who can kill a grim reaper?

I'm already dead. With Than's help, I'll stop the evil from penetrating this world so I can get back to my soul gathering.

I mean the dead stay dead, right?

About Death's Dance (book 1 in the series)

Being a psychic, you would think talking to the dead was a walk in the park. However, it’s not always that simple. The hooded specter haunting me is one I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. One day, he appeared in my bedroom mirror. Good. Evil. I don’t know what his true intentions are. 

Enter Jackson, ghost hunting show host extraordinaire, and my ex, to save me from the big bad ghost.

From there…well…it’s been a world wind of complications. My house burnt down. I’m being stalked by an ancient evil and gotten myself back into the world of being a ghost hunting psychic. Jackson dragged me, along with a few other psychics, to a ghost town wiped off the map called Death’s Dance. 

From there things went from bad to worse. 

Death's Dance is Book One of the Deathly Encounters Series
