How long have you been doing this?

I've been reading Tarot (tare-row! Does not rhyme with carrot!) since I was 14. I've been professional for ten years.

Have you always been psychic?

We are all psychic to some degree (trite but true). I did not wake up one morning and find I was psychic. Just like any talent-it takes time, study, and practice. I feel anyone can do this. I'm proof of that.

How did you get into this line of work?

It started when, at my birth, I was born on the cusp of Libra and Virgo (Sept. 23, '55). Some books said I was a Virgo. Others said I was a Libra. I would have to read both horoscopes in the paper. Libra would say, "Go out! Meet people!" Virgo would say, "Stay home! Avoid strangers!"

When I was 14, I was at Macy's with my mother. I saw a Tarot deck on the clearance table. It was $7.00, which is exactly what I had. I asked my mother. She said fine. I did my first reading for my best friend. He had been looking for a job for three months. I saw in the cards he'd get a job in one day. He laughed. (Me too.) The next day he got two job offers. A fluke...I thought. I went into the Navy, grew up, and threw the cards away. After the Navy I started doing community theater, got insecure and bought another Tarot deck.

About ten years ago a friend of mine was having a psychic fair. I mentioned I read Tarot. She suggested I read at her fair. I did. It was fun. People asked for my phone number.

"Yeah, right," I said. "People are going to pay me to do this." They called. The rest is history.

How does 'psychic' work?

Very well, thank you for asking.

Do you believe in God?

I believe there is a constructive force in the Universe and a destructive force. If you wish to call them God and Satan, so be it. The side we choose is up to each of us. It's called free will. I think my gift is from God. (1 Corinthians 12: 1-10.) Why me? God knows! You can be spiritual without being religious!

Do you do magic?

Couple of hundred years ago, the wrong answers to 5 and 6 could make me the guest of honor at a roast (i.e. burning stake). Everyone does magic. Praying or casting spells, it's all the same. Psychic is passive. I see, I tell you what I see. Magic is active. If I do magic for you, I'm interferring. I don't cast spells for clients. Beware of those who say they do. (Free psychic advice.)

How much do you charge?

More free psychic advise: If a psychic charges more than $50.00 or lives in the 900 area code, find another psychic.

My first reading is $10.00. People have come or called for a reading. "I'm only paying ten dollars!" they insist. "Good! That's all I want!" If you don't like my reading, my beard, my cats-you're out ten bucks. I never tell or even ask a client to come or call back. (A few I asked not to come, I told them not to come or call back.) If you come back, the next reading is $30.00. Flat fee.

What do I get in the first reading?

There is no difference between the first reading and any other. Note: they take about an hour.

Do you do public predictions?

My opinion? Making predictions for the media/public is egotistical, silly, and the fastest and easiest way to ruin a psychic's reputation. This is not what my "gift" is for.

How accurate are you?

Out of all the private readings I did last year (at my home), nearly 3 out of 4 were either repeat clients or referrals. As I said before, I don't tell or even ask clients to come or call back. If I were not accurate, they would not be coming back or sending their friends and I would be out of business.
