The title of Terry Iacuzzo's book, Small Mediums at Large, made me laugh out loud so hard and long that I was shushed by the librarian. I immediately took the book home and read it 2 times. An even greater prize is inspiration and validation that our physical world is just a smidge of what we humans really experience on a day to day basis and that there is indeed more to our existence than we know.
Terry Iacuzzo was born on Halloween in Buffalo, New York. Terry's father is the only marginally normal character in the book. She and her brother, Frank Andrews, have been professional psychics in New York City for over thirty years. A contributing writer for Seventeen magazine, she also writes a monthly column for CosmoGirl! called "Ask the Psychic. Her mother, brother Frank, sister Rosemary and all the others who put in an appearance here - even the ones who only get a paragraph or two - are, to some degree, troubled people.
