Sylvia Browne was born in Kansas City, Missouri. At three years old, Sylvia's psychic powers were revealed when she announced that her grandfather was dead (he was), and that she would have a baby sister in three years.
Just as predicted, Sharon was born one month short of Sylvia's sixth birthday. Sylvia's grandmother, Ada Coil, was herself a medium; and Celeste, Sylvia's mother, grew up in a home where visions were commonplace. Although she herself was not psychic, Celeste accepted it as normal, if somewhat annoying. She did not welcome more eccentricity in her life, however, and would do nothing to encourage it in her daughter. Their lifelong relationship was strained, but Sylvia's relationship with her father was very close and loving.
Sylvia Browne is the #1 New York Times best-selling author and world-famous psychic who appears regularly on the Montel Williams Show and Larry King Live, as well as making countless other media and public appearances. She is also the president of the Sylvia Browne Corporation, and founder of her church, the Society of Novus Spirit - which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2006.
With her down-to-earth personality and great sense of humor, Sylvia thrills audiences on her lecture tours - and she's still found the time to write a number of immensely popular books (she has a master's degree in English literature). Sylvia lives in California and plans to write as long as she can.
Chris Dufresne, son of Sylvia, is a highly respected psychic in his own right who works alongside his mother in the Northern California area. He has two children, Angelia, and William.
Chris is an authentic psychic from birth. Being Sylvia’s son he shares in her genetic predisposition to psychic excellence. Chris is the only other psychic recommended by Sylvia. He has been a working psychic for almost 20 years and has established his own clientele from thousands of satisfied clients. Chris is a superb reader and the best alternative to Sylvia.
Chris has authored a book entitled, My Life with Sylvia Browne – A Son Reflects on Life with His Psychic Mother and has co-authored a New York Times best-selling book with his mother entitled, Animals on the Other Side. He has another book soon to be released (June 2006 /Hay House) entitled, My Psychic Journey.
