It's no wonder that Katie has been living in the metaphysical world nearly her entire life. Maybe that's because she was born on a blue moon in Pisces or her interest was carried over from a previous life. She first experienced "reading cards" at the age of 10 when she used a fortune-telling game called Gong Hee Fot Choy that belonged to her aunt. One day, she felt compelled to walk into the Psychic Eye in Las Vegas and soon realized why. There she found that same game that she "played" as a child and quickly purchased it. When going to the street carnivals and amusement parks, she was always attracted to the fortune-telling machine like the one in the movie "Big." She feels spirits, can sense energy vibrations of others, and constantly hones her increasing clairvoyant skills. In 1970, she picked up her first astrology book, Linda Goodman's "Sun Signs." She started reading tarot cards in 1975 using Eden Grey's "Complete Guide to the Tarot" as stated in the book's description. In 1976, she taught herself how to read palms using "The Complete Book of Palmistry" by Joyce Wilson and still has the original book containing her notations. Katie believes in reincarnation and has done past life regressions using self-hypnosis. She read, "You Were Born Again to be Together" by Dick Sutphen in 1976 and found that the book contained beliefs identical to her own. In 1979, a man who had studied under Sydney Omarr offered to teach her how to do astrology charts manually using complicated mathematical calculations. She now uses software to do charts and is able to interpret them without the use of reference books. Hint: Astrology is a lot more than the "sun sign." Outside of the metaphysical world, in the "real world," Katie lives with her three mutts: Romeo, Rascal, and Maxwell Smart, her newest addition. She is a voracious reader, is an advocate for animals, is both a history and a movie buff, is somewhat of a trivia nut, and loves to dance. She is currently thinking about writing a book about fun little tricks of palmistry. Hint: You can determine a person's IQ or whether or not the person is generous.
