At the age of eight Diane Lazarus first experienced the power of her amazing gift by seeing, hearing and speaking to spirits. Since then Diane has learned to control her gift, switching it on and off at will. Today she is rated in the top five professional psychics worldwide and was recently the winner of the TV series "Psychic Challenge". Her ability to visualize past and future events means she's frequently used by police throughout the UK and her accuracy in several murder investigations have prompted senior officers to call for her psychic assistance in a number of high profile crimes. The book recounts how she first discovered her gift - which turned out to be, understandably - a pretty terrifying experience and how she came to develop it despite the disapproval and disbelief of many of those around her. Diane's childhood was a struggle, her family suffered at the hands of their violent father and although they managed to escape his grasp, it took time for Diane to become confident in her gift - a mixed blessing but one that she has managed to use to benefit so many others.
Diane has used her psychic ability to help the police, Air and Coastguard rescue as well as using it for historical research. She gives consultations to the public and celebrities and also works as a healer. In 2006, she was crowned Britain's Best Psychic in the Channel 5 programme Britain's Psychic Challenge. Diane lives with her husband and two children in Wales.
