The year flies by once again and winter storms are threatening much of the US. BRRR! Locally we have been in a weather warp of some sort with warmer temps and less snow. I am not complaining!
The winter photos on my website are from a blizzard last year. We've had little snow this year. Watching the awful photos from other states in the Midwest and PA near Lake Erie I think we are lucky here that it has not been so horrible. Many of us are wondering though if we are going to get solidly pounded here before spring brings back the sun.
A friend gave me some awesome bulbs last year that my grandchildren helped me to plant. One of the Iris is already peeking out of the ground. I hope that does not kill the bulb as we are in a cold snap again. My granddaughter in particular is looking forward to seeing the flowers she helped to plant come up. My grandson has done this with me before so he is more patient.
I am working on my newest book while hibernating from the cold. It is easier for me to stay on track with writing when it is cold out and I am not wanting to go outside as much. It is also a fun way to spend some time creating a new book for my fans. I enjoy the creative process of writing to share my odd world with others.
I recently learned that a young man, Jack, who was the victim in one of the first police cases I ever worked with the Delaware State Police passed away. Jack was a truly amazing young man, brutally attacked at about 17 he was severely injured and not expected to live. I remember when I first saw him in the hospital to see if I could pick up more information from his memory to help catch the perpetrators.
He could not communicate verbally and was in terrible shape but when he realized that I could 'hear' him he kept shouting information to me that helped me to give descriptions of the assailants to the police. I was so impressed with his determination to survive and help with the case.
I was also able to assure his mother that he was still in there and that helped her in making the decisions for his care. I saw them both several times after helping on his case. I was so impressed with their courage and how much Jack managed to improve. He had the most incredible outlook and survival skills in life. He inspired and touched all of us. I was amazed to learn that he lived so long after his terrible injuries. It is a tribute to his indomitable spirit.
His mother and I talked about having adventurous children who pushed the envelope as I had sons like that too. Although mine did not jump off of the roof! But that daring nature is what saved Jack, that and an alert trooper driving by the gas station where he worked and noticing no one was in the office and wondering what was in the parking lot on the ground. That trooper's good instincts saved Jack's life and he went on to challenge all of us to live our lives to the fullest as he did his. RIP Jack, now you can jump off mountains and fly free!
Fighting crime in the unusual way I do is rewarding. I've met the most amazing people. It is also nice to look back and remember helping to put some really violent people away where they can't hurt anyone else.

Winter is here once again and I have a new heater in my living room. It is cold across the floor in my Victorian and this is helping Herbie and I stay warmer in here and keeping the whole house thermostat settings lower. That is the theory anyway. The keeping warmer part is working already.
This year I passed the 900 cases mark! Thinking about that is almost overwhelming. I never imagined when Col. Smith, head of the Delaware State Police at the time, talked me into trying murder cases with his men that I would end up working this many cases. In fact I really did not think it would be detailed enough to solve cases. He was right and I was wrong as I have helped solve many cases over the years.
It would be nice to say that the level of violence has decreased since I came on the job but that is not true. Homicides are harder to solve now because they are often committed by people who are seemingly unconnected to the victims, making the use of good quality psychics and detectives on the job even more essential than they used to be.
I was propelled into this work by the then new head of the Delaware State Police Col. Irvin B. Smith. He had the foresight to realize I could help by working difficult cases and he harrassed me, politely, until I entered the field initially to get him to stop calling me every day with new ideas. I really thought I could show him it would not work well but instead I taught myself that he was right.
With the right attitude, care, psychic skills, and cooperative detectives willing to track down the leads I came up with we solved the unsolvable and I am still doing that. It is not easy and there is nothing much about tracking down killers that will ever be fun. There seems to be an endless supply of distorted people who rationalize their right to take another's life from them. At the same time the supply of those detectives who chase them down are still out here too! Bringing justice for those whose lives were taken remains a goal that detectives of all kinds understand and will go on seeking.
It is how we are!
