What would it be like to be psychic?

If you agree that being psychic is a possibility, then the next question is: what does that mean? Is the future fixed? Do we have free will? If we have free will how free is it when some people can see the future? Is it only a possible future?

These are just a few of the questions I asked myself when I started to write The Freak series, Tales of a Reluctant Psychic. I was also interested in investigating what it would be like to suddenly have your life changed. One minute everything is set, you have a plan. The next minute it's all been turned upside down and you have to start over — even with the way you think.

On Tuesday, Nov. 3/09, we launch Tales of a Reluctant Psychic at McNally Robinson bookstore in Winnipeg. I predict it will be a lot of fun!
