About the Author

Lesley Marden is a regular everyday wife and mother who recognized at an early age that she was aware of things that other people couldn't see. After being laughed at and told that she was lying about her encounters, Lesley decided to keep her experiences to herself and even tried to stifle them all together. It wasn't until she was in her twenties that she decided it was okay to be different and allowed herself to start experiencing what came naturally once again. She had always compartmentalized her existence by keeping the different parts of her life in neat little boxes. One box contained family, one housed friends, the next box was for work and the final box held her paranormal experiences. All boxes were tightly closed, as only one box was allowed to be opened at a time. Somehow, the top on the last box had been left open of the contents of that box have slowly made their way into all of the other areas of Lesley's life. It didn't seem like it at first, but this, as everything does, happened for a reason. Because of this leaking box, Lesley has embraced and developed what gifts she has been given and is now using what she has to help others. Lesley is the author of the book Medium, Rare: A First Hand Account of Growing Up Experiencing the Paranormal. She is also a certified Reiki Practitioner and has worked as a medium on public and private investigations. Although she has done psychic readings in the past, her focus is now on growing spiritually. Recently she has been helping others to realize that we are all supported by the spirit world every day and that it is okay to just be who you are. Lesley lives with her family in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire. She loves photographing landscapes, but has captured a few intriguing paranormal images as well.

An easy read that stimulates your imagination and keeps you turning the pages. The story is spooky but not scary. Lesley Marden shares an honest recollection of life with her unusual awareness. More people ought to pay attention to their own lives "coincidences".

I sat down with this book around 6pm on a Sunday evening. I sat there reading until I finished about 2am. Very interesting, very relate-able. What I appreciated the most was the author was very real, very honest and although I was very drawn to what she was saying, I wasn't scared by it. It's not a fright book - it is an open, honest, matter of fact accounting of the history of her gift. Well done.

I found this book to be a good example of a person with special gifts has doubts about saying things to people for fear of pushing people away I feel the Same way I don't think I have the gift but I
do get impression a lot of times and no one to talk to about them but Lesley did put the idea in my head on how to find them or at least we're to start. I like this book.
