Sylvia was born in Kansas City, Missiouri and her psychic gifts were notable from a young age. When she was only three years old, Sylvia declared that her grandfather was dead and that she would have a baby sister in three years time – two predictions that turned out to be correct. Although Sylvia’s mother, Celeste, wasn’t psychic, her grandmother Ada Coil was psychic, which is clearly where her psychic genetic gifts stemmed from.
Sylvia’s books have touched the lives of millions of people worldwide and she’s been a number one New York Times best-selling author. She regularly makes appearances on TV shows, including being a regular on the Montel Williams Show and Larry King Live.
When not writing books, Sylvia spent time working as a psychic guest lecturer, including on cruise ships, presents shows on Hay House Radio and was president of the Sylvia Browne Corporation. Sylvia was also the founder of the Society of Novus Spiritus, a church based in California.
The psychic genes have continued in Sylvia’s family and have been passed on to her son, Chris Dufresne, who’s become a well known psychic in his own right. Chris has been working as a psychic for over 25 years and, as well as working on his own, he’s also co-authored a number of books with his mother. These include, My Life with Sylvia Browne – A Son Reflects on Life With His Psychic Mother and Animals on The Other Side.
