Val Tobin's love of reading translated into a love of writing from the time she was six years old. She also had a fascination for the paranormal and occult, which is reflected in her writing. Her lifelong passions were interrupted by a sojourn into programming and a ten-year career in software/Web development.
She became a certified Reiki Master/Teacher and Angel Therapy Practitioner® with Advanced Training, certified by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D. in 2008. She then trained in mediumship, also with Doreen Virtue, in Kona, Hawaii. Val received a Bachelor of Science in Parapsychic Science in 2010, and is working on a masters degree in Parapsychology. She is a member of a few paranormal investigation and UFO groups, and participates in investigations and sky watches. Val spends most of her time writing, presenting workshops, studying, and enjoying time with her husband, two kids, and three grandkids.
Val wrote for Community MX, a site dedicated to all things Macromedia, and had a story published in Doreen Virtue's Hay House book "Angel Words." "The Experiencers" is her first novel. Val lives in Newmarket, Ontario, with her husband and cat.
