About Corrine Kenner
Hi! I’m Corrine Kenner, and I specialize in bringing metaphysical subjects down to earth. I’m an author, astrologer, certified tarot master, and owner of the Haunted Antique Shop in DeLand, Florida. Thanks for visiting my Amazon author page!
I’m one of the world’s leading experts on the connections between tarot and astrology. I hold a Level 1 certification from the National Council for Geocosmic Research, a highly respected astrology association. I’ve written several books about tarot and astrology, including Tarot and Astrology, Tarot for Writers, and Astrology for Writers. I’m also a former editor of Llewellyn’s popular Astrological Calendar, Daily Planetary Guide, and Sun Sign Book.
I’ve been reading tarot professionally for more than 20 years. These days, I offer tarot and astrology readings from my Haunted Antique Shop in central Florida. I’d be happy to read for you, too! To book an appointment with me, either in person or online, visit corrinekenner.com or hauntedantiqueshop.com.
I started my career as a newspaper reporter, and in the years since then I’ve worked as a magazine editor, media relations specialist, technical writer, and website developer. I’ve written hundreds of newspaper, magazine, and online articles, as well as dozens of how-to guidebooks.
I’ve lived in Brazil, where I learned Portuguese, and Los Angeles, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from California State University. In 2016, I spent a month in a French castle, writing a novel — a project that was featured on CNN. I’ve also had the good fortune to speak at tarot conferences across the United States, Canada, and England.
Many of my books have been translated for a worldwide audience, too: they’re available in Chinese, French, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
I’m currently working on a novel based on the tarot, as well as short stories inspired by the cards. My next book, Gently Haunted: True Stories from the Haunted Antique Shop, will be released in September.
If you’re ever in Central Florida, please stop by my shop so we can meet in person! In the meantime, feel free to look around this site. I hope you’ll find it useful.

Once reserved for mystics and seers, the tarot is one of the best tools for boosting your creativity and shifting your imagination into high gear. Famous authors such as John Steinbeck and Stephen King have used the tarot deck to tap into deep wells of inspiration, and you can enliven your own writing the same way―whether you craft short stories, novels, poetry, nonfiction, or even business proposals.
This book on reading tarot cards and applying them to your writing will guide you through each stage of the creative process, from fleshing out a premise to promoting a finished work. Enhance your storytelling technique through over 500 enjoyable writing prompts, exploratory games for groups and individuals, tarot journaling, and other idea-stimulating activities that call upon the archetypal imagery and multi-layered symbolism in the tarot.

- Interpret symbols, myths, and learn to read all seventy-eight cards in the tarot card deck
- Use classic tarot layouts and spreads to structure your story
- Brainstorm story ideas and develop dialogue and plot
- Create detailed settings, powerful scenes, and dynamic characters

As a writer, you hold the power of creation in your hands. By exploring the tarot and incorporating it into your writing practice, you will set your creative potential soaring to new heights.
Join Corrine Kenner as she recounts gentle hauntings of her Florida antique shop. Meet the ghost of Annette Dennis, who holds everyone in the shop to her high musical standards and the spirits of Jim and Rossie Hearne, who possess the store’s newlywed dolls. Whether they are attracted to the century-old bungalow or the collectables sold within it, these spirits interact with the living to show us life’s joys.
In addition to hopeful stories, this book provides numerous tips for using psychometry, pendulums, dowsing rods, and tarot cards to help you reach out to friendly shadows of the past. Corrine’s experiences with objects that appear out of nowhere, move on their own, and radiate psychic energy reassure us that we can still connect to loved ones on the other side.
Simply choose a single word or phrase from each of the five sections, in order, and then turn those selections into a sentence. It's easy, because the sections are arranged like parts of speech.
Here’s a sample prompt to show you how it works.
1.descriptions (adjectives): vengeful
2.characters (nouns): historian
3.actions (verbs): steals
4.plot twists (objects): movie script
5.settings (more nouns): coffee shop
Add a few articles and prepositions, and you have a premise for a story: A vengeful historian steals a movie script in a coffee shop.
Look for combinations that amuse and intrigue you. Feel free to make changes, substitutions, and additions. You might find a garbage man in the list — but you’ll soon discover that your garbage man is actually a garbage woman, or a trash-picking hobo, or an environmentally sensitive vampire who sleeps in a landfill. Let your characters drive the story.
You can also play fast and loose with the grammar. You’re welcome to turn nouns into verbs, or objects into adjectives. Maybe your character isn’t a ghost. Maybe he’s just ghostly.
You can change verb conjugations, too. If your hero isn’t inflicting wounds, for example, maybe he’s the one being wounded.
Feel free to make the most of the suggestions in this booklet. Remember that they’re starting points, not final destinations — and let them take you into a story that practically writes itself.
When Corrine Kenner sets a timer for 15 or 20 minutes, watch out: you never know who will come out and play.
- Some of her fictional characters seem perfectly harmless at first—like Priscilla, the shy, sweet museum archivist who keeps a bowl of candy on her desk.
- Others, like the Flying Nuns, signal trouble from the start. No good can come from the Sisterhood of Eternal Pain, especially when they're at the roller derby rink.
- You'll meet the alien analyst who calculates algorithms for social media, spirits who step out of Salvador Dali paintings, and psychics with a dim view of the future.
