If you could have any psychic power you wished, what would it be? In the world of the Psychic Crossroads, my characters don't get to choose. Their powers are thrust on them by unknown means. Is it fate or a subconscious decision? I have yet to reveal the answer, but in the second book, Intuition, I explore more of the psychic possibilities—with new powers and new consequences for using them. Check out this list of 13 spooky powers that make an appearance in Intuition, along with a snippet from the book to demonstrate the ability.

13 Spooky Psychic Powers from the World of Intuition

1. Intuition. Gaining a heightened awareness of others' feelings and thoughts without actually experiencing them. From Intuition: "The energy spinning out from her licked at his psychic senses and bristled an intuition buried deep."

2. Telepathy. Communicating psychically with another person, but without direct exchange of thoughts. From Intuition: "We can do this, he told her. Can't hurt anyone, she said."

3. Healing. Repairing wounds or reinvigorating the life energy of someone else via psychic means; requires a combination of other powers, including telekinesis and remote viewing. From Intuition: "Warmth penetrated her wound, spreading outward until it encompassed her whole body, tingling with an odd energy."

4. Precognition. Seeing and experiencing future events. From Intuition: "With David in the woods, like in her vision, the premonition still might come true."

5. Postcognition. Seeing and experiencing past events, via someone else's memories. From Intuition: "Their link unfurled, an iridescent thread of blue in the darkness. She took hold and let it draw her in, to a place buried deep in his memory."

6. Empathy. Sensing others' emotions and physical sensations, past and present. From Intuition: "Your happy-sappy horny feelings are wrecking my sulky mood."

7. Telekinesis. Influencing the physical world through manipulation of matter at a molecular level; allows the psychic to move objects without touching them, among other things. From Intuition: "Remote viewing this location demanded every ounce of psychic energy both of them possessed, as they combined astral projection, telekinesis, and thought projection into a cohesive image of themselves standing before the commandos."

8. Astral projection. Projecting an image of oneself into another location, possibly far away, as well as projecting one's voice; requires a combination of remote viewing, telekinesis, and thought projection. From Intuition: "Solid earth supported her feet. Though she lacked a physical form, her mind conjured an image of her body that behaved like the real thing."

9. Thought projection. Inserting specific thoughts or ideas into someone else's mind or influencing their mind through psychic suggestion. From Intuition: "She beamed a fervent wish into his mind. Get in the closet, sit down, sleep."

10. Remote viewing. Visualizing any location, object, or event anywhere in the world—past, present, or future—simply by thinking about it and without any prior knowledge of it. From Intuition: "He soared up into the crossroads, hunting for the path that would lead him into the facility—if the metal shed concealed a facility."

11. Manifestation. Manufacturing a copy of your physical body in another location; requires a combination of other powers, including telekinesis and astral projection. From Intuition: "The shadow-thing slithered down the corridor toward them. Its amorphous body coalesced into arms and legs and a torso, all corded with thick muscles."

12. Mind reading. Stealing thoughts or memories from another person's mind; extremely dangerous! From Intuition: "With one final thrust, she captured the information she coveted and ripped it from his mind without hesitation."

13. The Golden Power. Gaining omniscience—knowing everything that is, was, or will be known or occur—through a connection to the ultimate source of psychic energy. Do not try this at home! From Intuition: "She split a hole through the fabric of the metaphysical plane, propelling her mind beyond the limits of psychic faculties, straight into the essence of the universe."

Torn apart by their haunted pasts, Grace Powell and her fiancé David Ransom are struggling to
reclaim their passionate bond and build a normal life — one without danger and paranormal powers. But David can't renounce his obsession with hunting down Karl Tesler, who abducts and tortures psychics. David endured Tesler's tactics himself, but despite what Grace believes, he's not out for revenge.

Tesler covets her unprecedented abilities and her mysterious connection to a source of limitless psychic power. David will do anything — even abandon and lie to her — to protect Grace from Tesler.

With a psychic stalker on her trail, Grace charges into a desperate mission to uncover the truth about David's obsession. But Tesler's agents are closing in on her, and a terrifying new enemy is rising…

As events drive Grace and David toward a battle of epic proportions, they must risk everything — their relationship, their lives, and even their souls — to defeat an enemy who wields unspeakable psychic power.
