Author Biography

Lee Fishman arrived in Philadelphia as a college student, fell in love with city living and stayed on. Even after traveling to Italy, Greece, France, Holland, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Turkey, England, and other beautiful countries she still can’t think of anywhere else she’d rather live. OK, maybe Paris.
Lee is a firm believer in personal transformation and she should know. Since graduating from Temple University, she’s worked as a archaeology technician, candy-maker, teacher, caseworker, tour guide, actor, psychic, career counselor and librarian. Along the way she found her true calling, writing. She particularly loves piecing together mysteries. In her next life (in addition to being six feet tall) she’d love to be a detective.
Her first novel, Edge of a Dream depicts gritty challenges new immigrants face adjusting to city life in America. Her new novel, Mediums Guild is the story of a Philadelphia psychic who becomes involved in the mysterious disappearance of a young couple.

Margo Fellshur is a recently separated mother of two whose finances are on shaky ground. Her job as a real estate agent has all but dried up, and with her seventeen-year-old daughter Jamie about to head to college, she relies on the extra money she makes working as part of the Mediums Guild, a group of psychic friends that often do jobs together. While reading palms at a Halloween party, Margo is approached by Greg Parrish who wants help locating his missing sister, Carla, and her boyfriend, Steve. When she decides to help she has no idea how much her life is about to change!

Mediums Guild by Lee Fishman provides just the right balance of psychic ability, mystery, and family drama saga to create a page-turning read that left me anticipating what might come next! Margo is such a well fleshed out, down to earth character who was very easy to connect with. She could be any woman in America except for her psychic abilities! I thought the author provided a very realistic look into psychic ability, and it was quite interesting to see how, when those abilities are nurtured, they can become stronger. The character of Harlan added an interesting element because his specialty was using dowsing rods. The mystery woven into the plot was top notch, and the way Ms. Fishman tied the story together was something that I really didn't see coming. A strong, multi-faceted storyline made this a book I couldn't put down. Mediums Guild is such a good read that I feel like the story could easily be continued. I only hope Ms. Fishman decides to turn it into a series or at least a sequel because I feel the character of Margo has several stories left to tell.
