I shall be splitting the interview into sections, so over the next week or so you’ll be able to learn how I came to be a tarot reader, more about my life as a psychic, and some of my insights into tarot.

Visiting Lilly by Toni Allen

The other day I had lovely feedback from someone who’s just started reading Visiting Lilly. Part of his enthusiasm was that he lives locally to Farnham, and knows all of the locations, so instantly gained a sense of belonging to the story, and of it being about people he could relate to.

Now, I’m fully aware that not everyone lives near Farnham, Surrey, UK.
For those of you who don’t I shall build a sense of location, periodically adding new photos, so that you too can see the places that DI Jake Talbot and Frankie Hayward visit.

Farnham Police StationOur first stop on this virtual tour of Farnham and surrounding areas is Farnham Police Station, where Talbot works. Built in 1963, it’s now due for demolition. The irony is that I started writing Visiting Lilly way before the police began their scheme of selling off prime location buildings and streamlining…

Visiting Lilly by Toni AllenI’m thrilled to receive a 5 star review for Visiting Lilly from fellow mystery writer Robert J. Ray, author of the Matt Murdock Mysteries.

Robert J. Ray says of Visiting Lilly:

Professional Tarot guru Toni Allen joins the ranks of mystery writers with a debut novel that whisks the reader on a journey in quest of the Astral Plane, where two lovers—a lovely elderly lady in a care home, and an isolated young man who remembers their past—do their utmost best to keep their love alive. Allen’s work is fascinating because she conceals this unlikely search for love beneath the bones of a police procedural. The setting is not hurried, touristy London, but the idyllic outskirts of Surrey. Welcome to the genre!

12 zodiac signsAstrological Forecast For October 2014

The month of October threatens to be challenging because from 6th Oct through to 27th Oct Mercury, the planet of communication, is going retrograde. This always creates hiccups by delaying vital messages getting through, playing havoc with our internet connections and, somehow, making us all speak at cross purposes to each other. Do not despair; there are others things to do apart from talk. Jupiter is in Leo and that means fun, fun, fun.

Aries star signAries will have a romantic month and feel very secure with their partner. Finding time to be alone and work is the tough part. Buying art and beautiful objet d’art for your home gives you great pleasure: you’re investing in your future. Friends may be jealous of your abundance, but ignore them, I see you working hard for your success.

Taurus star signTaurus You’re determined to succeed but confused as to direction. This is a time of networking and being prepared to change your mind. Travel, writing and education are the top things to do, but relationships look a bit stodgy, so take space to be on your own for a while. Persuading people of how useful you are comes easy, which is brilliant if you’re looking to change career or job.

gemini star signGemini Work is going extremely well, but is it to the detriment of your family relationships? Taking home the bacon is all well and good, but don’t keep boring your loved ones with business talk. Moving home, refurbishment, or even building a house, all go well; so does any kind of public performance. The end of the month finds you in party mood and ready to have some fun.

Cancer star signCancer, you love your home but this month you’re working hard, saving up to visit exotic locations and travelling to nearer destinations. I see you talking, planning and having loads of fun chatting about where you’ll visit. It’s a lucky month for you, and anyone who makes people laugh for a living, or is a tour guide, will be especially fortunate. If you have teenage children this may be the first time you leave them home alone while you go off travelling.

leo star signLeo will spend this month spending: lots! There are so many lovely things out there that you just have to have. Some of you will be spending to heal a broken heart, while others will be re-mortgaging in order to get ahead and buy something better. Most conversations will be light hearted, because you really don’t fancy thinking sensibly at the moment. Life is fun and you want to enjoy it: right now.

Virgo star signVirgo may be feeling romantically confused. You appear to be slightly fed up with everything, but determined to create sweeping changes. There’s a hunt for a new career and better prospects, as well as a promise to invest more time and energy in yourself. Pursuits carried on in isolation bring great rewards, but anyone working in hospitals will be at the fore front of major upheavals. Visiting close friends is very relaxing and gives you a boost.

Libra star signLibra are uncertain about current friendships and romance, so are forging ahead to meet new people. Showing off is good and brings you some much needed attention. Money may feel tight, so be wary of ‘get rich quick’ schemes, they may not be all they seem. Fun is to be found by dressing up and looking good, so treat yourself to some new glad rags and go and knock those new friends for six.

Scorpio star signScorpio, your tastes are changing with a new leaning towards foreign or tribal art. Usually loathe to throw away anything, you’re now having a bit of a clear out. Possessions are possessing you; and with a great desire to travel now calling, travelling light appears to be the answer. Work will offer sudden opportunities to go in a different direction, but with no time to talk things through, you have to make a quick decision.

Sagittarius star signSagittarius Life’s a bit of a jumble. You appear to be receiving lots of praise, but very little reward for your efforts. Stay or go? Relish the limelight for now and slowly plan your escape. You’re in quite a philosophical mood, constantly discussing with others the concept of pushing against known boundaries. Plan, plan and keep planning; the time for action will be the end of the year. Meanwhile be creative in the arts or sport, it will you help burn off some of that frustration.

Capricorn star signCapricorn are beavering away behind the scenes and making their dreams come true. Writing, communication and foreign travel can all make you prosperous right now. Some people may not understand what you’re doing, but those who do will encourage you enormously. It’s a good time to learn a new language and to drum up funding for any new business enterprise.

Aquarius star signAquarius You’re trying to change your lifestyle and looking to loved ones for support. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so don’t expect everything to happen overnight: be patient. Your romantic life is really strong, however general friendships, especially with wealthier people, will start to irritate and make you question their morals. Long walks and laughter with your favourite person make all of your troubles evaporate.

pisces2Pisces are in a very dreamy mood; however those dreams appear to be highly creative because this month is positive for work and personal projects. Travel can bring new opportunities for romance, but do you speak the same language, in every sense of the phrase? There’s a shift coming in how you want others to view you, but as yet it’s all dreams, so read another fantasy novel and laugh when others say you’re wasting your time.

According to the UK news this is a bumper year for spiders. The warm, muggy weather has been perfect for all those little flying insects that spiders love to eat.

My mystery thriller novel Visiting Lilly is now available on Amazon and already has a five star review.

Visiting Lilly by Toni AllenVISITING LILLY

Why should a man at a Surrey police station go ballistic because someone tries to visit Lilly, his elderly grandmother?

Detective Inspector Jake Talbot is intrigued, and this little puzzle might serve to distract him from sorrows of a Christmas past. Soon he is entangled with Frankie, an odd young man who claims to have met Lilly in her youth. Talbot dismisses the notion of time travel, but then discovers the Ministry of Defence has been monitoring Frankie since his friend disappeared ten years previously. Forced to work with the MOD, Talbot unearths family secrets and betrayals. The families act ruthlessly to prevent him from discovering the facts, colluding to ruin him.

If Frankie is innocent, Talbot won’t let him be victimised. An uneasy understanding grows between them as they follow the evidence, for only the truth will allow Frankie to visit Lilly.
