This isn’t your Mother’s channeling…

Walk-In Investigations: Streaming Sarah by Joyce Kostakis is the first in a planned series. It is a tense, gripping, genre-splicing Psychic Detective mystery; it’s a must for fans of intelligent crime dramas.

Homicide Detective Katie Hanson prided herself on being an advocate for the dead. She had no idea dying would take that to an entirely new level. A near-death experience has added a new skill to her crime-solving abilities… she can stream the dead. It is more than just channeling murder victim Sarah Alexander’s account of her horrific murder and the murder of her two children, much more. Katie learns to stream Sarah’s consciousness, her memories, her very soul.

At first, Katie thought dying was just the break she needed in closing out her cold case. As the investigation unfolds, her excitement turns to frustration. Katie quickly realizes she is dead wrong.  A spirit’s memory is just as flawed as the living. Katie’s gut instinct is to believe Sarah, but the evidence doesn’t support the testimony. In fact, it made matters worse. Now she has two suspects. Will Sarah help Katie bring the killer to justice, or will they drag in an innocent man?

Streaming Sarah is available on Audible!

Streaming James is the sequel to Walk-In Investigations: Streaming Sarah. It is the second in a planned Streaming Souls Mystery Series.

In the second novel, Streaming James, Katie continues to adjust to her new role as a Psychic Detective and opens Walk-In Investigations to solve cold cases for local police departments. She investigates the murder of James Baxter, a 20-year-old cold case belonging to her father, retired Homicide Detective Jim Hanson.

After a failed suicide, homicide detective Katie Hanson has a rare advantage over most other homicide detectives. She can channel the dead and see through dimensions into a parallel world. As she’s coming to terms with her new skills, she uses them to solve the cold case murder of Sarah Alexander and her two children. Stifled by the limits of her job as a public servant, Katie retires and opens Walk-In Investigations Third-Eye Detective Agency in partnership with her friend Vicki, a psychic.

Still navigating the waters of her evolving skills, Katie takes on the most personal case of her career. A case her detective father, a thirty-year veteran, could never solve before his own retirement. The horrific murder of philanthropist James Baxter. As Katie plunges into the twenty-year-old murder, her excitement turns to frustration. James rejects her attempts to channel, and her father is skeptical about using psychic abilities to solve crimes. Katie also has to come to terms with the losses in her own life that drove her to try to kill herself. To understand why a spirit wouldn’t want his murder solved, she crosses into other dimensions and observes the powerful forces standing in her way. Katie delves deeper and exposes secrets in James’ family and recognizes the powerful bond between the victim and his murderer. Will Katie and her team be able to solve this cold case, or will her profound encounters in the hereafter cause her to let the killer go free?

Dog Inspired Lessons (for Humans)

Heart-warming insights on forgiveness, letting go and loving unconditionally

 ISBN: ISBN: 978-0-692-84732-9 (paperback)

Dog ebook interpreted

Dog inspired lessons is a compilation of heart-warming lessons and photos of Max and Cooper that illustrate dogs are more than just pets; they are more than just companions, they can be our teachers.

 I have no doubt that each pet that shared their lives with me was God-guided into my life. It is perfect that dog is God spelled backward, it gives a dual meaning when I share the dog guided inspirational tales (tails) that taught me profound lessons in love, living in the moment, gratitude, and the power of forgiving and letting go.

 I made a decision to apply the lessons learned while watching Cooper and Max interact on a day to day basis. The result was positive. I feel emulating them as taught me how to be a better person. It has taught me to be a better friend, coworker, sister, wife, and pet owner. I decided to write this book to share my insights as well as provide a few photos to give you a smile in the process.
