As a child, Cindy dreamed of becoming a writer. Well, okay, thanks to her grade three teacher reading a chapter of The Little House on the Prairie books to Cindy’s class every day, Cindy actually dreamed of becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder. It made so much sense. After all, Cindy’s blond older sister always got to wear blue while Cindy with the “dark as cinders” hair was often relegated to wearing dull old pink-—just like Laura. Laura was part of a pioneer family, and until Cindy went to school she lived in a miniscule farming community where her father and grandparents were born. What further confirmation for her future does an eight-year-old with an avid imagination require?

Cathy Hatten has, from an early age, had a curious relationship with the Other Side. Diagnosed at age 8 with Type 1 Diabetes she was warned of complications that sometimes occur with this chronic condition. One of these"complications" was early death. This began a journey into that “unknown” part of life that has taken her to some interesting places, spiritually speaking.
Psychic or Psycho How to Tell the Difference is a quick window into some of the confirmations of spiritual abilities the author has received through the years. The hope is that by reading this book, readers will recognize many of these psychic instances and confirmations as being their own.

Born 17 May 1979 in Chester, Amy Elliott-Smith was brought up on the mean streets of Mid-Cheshire.
In its sprawling shanty towns she began to perform stand up comedy to friends and family at an early age. Aged twenty she decided to book herself in to perform at a gong show. This went well, so Amy did more and more comedy until anxiety and depression hit her like a shovel in the face, effectively halting her career.
A quivering wreck, confined to her room in fear of an irrational and sticky end, Amy began to write. This lifted the gloom a little and, slowly but surely, she become one of you 'normal' people, able to roam free in public once more.
