Toby Streams the Universe
TOBY STREAMS THE UNIVERSE. A psychic in the Big City, just trying to stay sane…. Now available at amazon!
Toby Hay is a psychic living in New York City, supporting his screwed-up family using his visions to play the stock market. He also helps his private investigator best-friend with the occasional case–all while trying not to read the future of every person he meets. Such as Toby’s new neighbor, a beautiful painter hiding from her violent Ex. Or Toby’s psychic, sex-pot, sister, scared of her own future. Or his quirky virtual-assistant, struggling to care for her sick child. Toby wants to help them all, but his super-psychic father trained him not to interfere, lest he lose his own sanity in the process. Toby’s father knew everything–he must have had good reasons for his rules. Of course, he vanished nearly a year ago…
Then a voice speaks in Toby’s mind, offering a path away from the dark future predicted by the Family Histories–if only Toby will challenge what his father taught him and learn to use his visions, rather than merely control them. Now Toby must find his father, uncover the identity of the voice, and save his friends from their futures, all while figuring out how to live inside his own, increasingly strange mind.
Quotes from some of the wonderful fan letters I have received about this book….
“…It’s so refreshing to read an urban fantasy that centers around an engaging male character, without all the machismo so often found in such stories. It was one of those reading experiences where you want to go slowly so the story doesn’t end, and yet speed through it because you have to find out how it resolves.”
“…LOVED “Toby Streams the Universe” and am looking forward to his further adventures. It was well written with great character development. Thanks for a wonderful read.”
“…I read Toby Streams the Universe over the weekend and loved it. I read the whole book straight through, getting the bulk of it read after I had put my kiddo to bed and ended up staying up waaaaaay past my bed time because I couldn’t put it down. I loved the fast pace, the adventure, and thought it had just enough romance to keep it real without delving into the realm of bodice ripper.”
“…I really enjoyed your book. Its not one I will easily forget like a lot of books I have read in the past, but one I look forward to reading over and over again.”
“…What a unique concept, and I’m in love with Toby. I just want to hold him and quiet all those voices. Thank you so much for a great book!”
“…I loved the story and the characters, and it kept me interested and was not predictable or formulaic. I especially liked that instead of the usual martyrdom, burn-at-the-stake, lonely recluse, pillar-of-steel-with-no-needs or other such theme that usually pops up for psychic-types, you allowed the character to be both psychic and have a normal life and normal angst. And a good ending!”
“…Your writing is really polished, and I felt like it gave me as the reader enough to create a vivid mental movie without giving too much and getting in the way.”
Thank you everyone for writing me!

Full Primary. Actually, that’s a lie. I left off those butt balance poses at the end of seated. I kind of hate those. They bore me. [hangs head] I’m weak.

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
