PSI Sentinels: Guardians of the Psychic Realm
Extraordinary senses in a world full of danger.

Welcome to the world of the PSI Sentinels.

The Institute for Psychic Studies - IPS, ran inside an old, stone mansion on extensive grounds in a remote area of Minnesota - is where professors and scientists work to find answers to the whys and wherefores of human psychic ability. 

However, IPS is also a cover for a private, secret agency operating in tandem with the federal government. Their agents work in the background to defend and shield unwary victims against the twisted underside of a psychic society bent on exploiting an unsuspecting, mundane civilization.

Stolen Spirit
PSI Sentinels: Guardians of the Psychic Realm /Book One

Hearing his dead ex-girlfriend’s voice in an empty room is enough to make a man question his sanity. Worse is when that ex insists she shouldn’t have died. Broken cop Jake Carrigan has no interest in delving into a past full of heartache and regrets. But he can’t deny she still matters, even if she’s simply a voice in his head.

 Hannah Dixon is having a hard time believing she’s dead. How can she be when she feels so much inside? She can see Jake, can talk to him, but she can’t touch him. And right now, touching Jake is all she wants.

 Jake’s probe into Hannah’s death stirs up a sinister psychic link, something dark that will stop at nothing to keep its secrets. To protect her own heart, Hannah left Jake once. Can she leave him again to protect his life?

Death plagues Gabe Nicholetti’s dreams. But he can’t save the people in his visions. The most he can do is bring their killers to justice. This time, though, this victim makes it all personal.

About the author, Pam Moran

Whether painting, out on a photo shoot or writing, Pam has always had a bend toward the creative side of life. Her favorite is when she can combine any of those with travel. Places get into her blood and she loves to explore the possibilities, always with characters and a story in mind. 

An astrologer for most of her adult life, Pam has been known to see auras & the occasional ghost. Considering she lives in a haunted house in the mountains of southern California, this keeps life interesting.

Jillian: What’s the first book you remember reading?  
Pam: One Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith. The paperback book was old and worn when it came into my possession, I don’t even remember who gave it to me, but as a kid I read it so many times I wore the cover completely off the book. I think I might even still have the book in a box somewhere in my attic. I loved the characters and didn’t want to leave them. 

As I got older, I didn’t reread as many books and today, with so many on my TBR pile and not nearly enough time, I rarely reread anything. But that story still stays with me, still makes me smile whenever I think about it.

Jillian: What’s your favorite fairy tale?
Pam: That’s such a hard question to answer! I’ve had a love affair with all fairy-tales since I was a kid. Maybe it’s the myth kind of thing, the Greek and Roman Gods, the life lessons all wrapped up in a story. 

Today, some of my favorite stories to get lost in are ones that retell the fairy tales we grew up reading, and the ones that have elements in them of those fairy tales. 

Jillian: Describe your favorite kind of hero to read/write?
Pam: Well ... sexy, alpha types just vulnerable enough to keep them from being too arrogant. The kind that gives me shivers and breaks my heart with sorrow over their predicaments. 

But if you ask my critique partners about the heroes I write (and I did!), they say my heroes are hunky and tortured alpha males who just need the right women to heal their hearts. They also offered to help .... 

I have one hero, Ramon Ortega, who has tried to take over every single story he’s ever appeared in. As Craig Carrigan’s cop partner, he feels a deep responsibility for the man’s death and because of that, a profound connection to Craig’s remaining siblings. Jake Carrigan is the hero in STOLEN SPIRIT and Rily Carrigan is the heroine in the upcoming BLIND SIGHT.

I hadn’t planned on writing Ramon’s story for awhile, but because of his sheer presence, I’ll be working on his comeuppance, I mean love story, next. HEALER’S EDGE should be out in Fall 2014.

Jillian: Who’s your favorite villain?
Pam: In books or movies, a good villain is so much fun! 

My favorite is Khan of Star Trek fame. He is the best kind of villain, the kind who is definitely the hero of his own story. He has his reasons and they’re as real and important to him as Kirk’s determination to stop him. 

Jillian: What’s something you’d like to tell your fans?
Pam: I hope you all enjoy the world of the PSI Sentinels as much as I’ve enjoyed exploring it in their stories.

While I like to say the PSI World is a psychic world gone wild, I try to keep its basics grounded in reality. Of course, the fact I see auras, I’ve had my psychic moments and I live in house with its own ghosts might make my reality a little more out there than others, ;o) my stories do follow specific world rules and that’s important to me. 

The same goes for the cop parts. I’m married to a cop and one of my critique partners is also a cop who has worked with several different federal agencies. They tend to keep me straight on that stuff. 

We’ve had some really interesting conversations in some really interesting places. 

My favorite was the waitress who kept scurrying by and couldn’t decide if she should call the police or ask us just whose upcoming murder we were discussing! We finally took pity on her and told her it was for a book – that we really weren’t going to be killing anyone. The relief on her face was palpable. Then, since we were the only customers in the place, she sat down and demanded to know all the details. She asked some really great questions! Made me wonder about her....

Jillian: What would you say is your most interesting quirk?
Pam: My most interesting quirk...that’s something else I asked my critique partners and I’m not sure I liked the smirks on their faces! Or the fact they just shook their heads and refused to answer.

Pam has question for commenters: If you had a PSI ability, what would it be? Why that one? Pam is giving away an ebook copy of ELSIE’S SECRET to one lucky commenter, chosen by Randomizer. Please remember to leave your contact information if you want to be included in the raffle.

  1. Welcome to Get Lost in a Story, Pam, and congratulations on the recent release of Stolen Spirit. I've got the novella and novel in my Kindle! I think I'd like to be able to read minds––as long as I could turn it off when I didn't want to read minds.

    1. Thanks for such a warm welcome to Get Lost in a Story ... one of my favorite places to hang out.

      As for reading minds, a turn-off switch could be a true necessity. Can you imagine all the stuff you wouldn't want to hear? It would make for a good story, though. ;o)

      And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jill! Hope it's an absolutely wonderful day! Thanks for sharing it here with me. <3


  2. Reading minds and being able to influence people would come in handy.

    Congrats on your book!

    1. Thank you, May!

      All sorts of plot twists come to mind when I think about being able to influence people. What if our feisty heroine doesn't realize what she's doing? Then there's the evil mastermind who wants to abuse her ability for his own gain ....

      Lots of possibilities there. ;o)


  3. knowing the correct lottery #s for obvious reasons

    1. LOL. That's my critique partner's answer to the question: Can I get you anything else? She's convinced someone will actually give them to her one day. I hope to be there when it happens!

      Thanks for dropping by.


  4. Hi Pam, congratulations on your releases! Your series looks phenomenal and I can't wait until I have a bit of a break in my schedule so I can read them.

    As far as what psychic ability I'd like, that's a tough question. I don't want to read people's minds. I think that would make me sad or disappointed more than it was helpful. I think I'd like to be able to see auras, though, and interpret energies in the people, places, animals, objects, plants that I come in contact with.

    Congratulations again!

  5. PAM! Huge congrats on your releases, that's marvelous! As for Psi abilities, I'd like to be able to read intent. Not too much of someone's public mind, just enough to know if I'm in danger. Cheers hon!

    1. Hi Christine! So happy you stopped by!

      Reading intent - I can imagine how useful that would be, kind of a Claircognizance kind of thing. That 'knowing' someone means you harm. And then what would you do with that knowledge (besides run like crazy)? Could make like extremely interesting.

      Pam ;o)

  6. Thanks, Melissa!

    Auras are so interesting. The first time for me it was these little white flowers with an intense, deep blue glow radiating outward from the petals. Talk about stopping in my tracks! I sat right down on the low stone wall surrounding the garden and spent nearly an hour simply gazing at them.

    Seeing auras isn't something I 'do' all the time or even consciously for the most part, although I believe it's always there. It's a question of how in-tune I am at the moment. One time I was just coming out of a store, not paying much attention to anything in particular, but my gaze swept the parking lot. There, standing beside her car, was a woman radiating the darkest purple, pulsing energy I'd ever seen. It was at least a foot or more from her body. Again, I was completely mesmerized until she climbed into her car and drove away.

    I think it's all the beautiful colors that fascinate me the most.

    Auras are touched on in Elsie's Secret and reading energy,especially energy left behind on objects, is an integral part of Stolen Spirit.

    Good luck with your schedule - I know how hard it can be to find time - I so appreciate you stopping by!.


  7. Love the title and cover Pamela !
    Best of luck with the release !

    1. Thanks, Angi - I so appreciate your kind words!

  9. PAM - I just saw the post and wanted to comment, even if late. I have Book 1 on my kindle, and can't wait to read it. So glad to see this! Congrats!
