Blog Tour: Character Interview & Playlist: Twisted Sisters - Kimber Leigh Wheaton (The Orion Circle #2)

Character Interview

I’d like to welcome Daniel Westin to tell us a bit more about his paranormal ability and his work with the Orion Circle.
Welcome, Daniel!
Thanks. Always happy to share my knowledge about the paranormal. It keeps people out of trouble… the more you know and all that.
You are a clairsentient, correct? Tell us a little about it.
I get psychic images from touching objects. Like, I can see an objects origin, the people who touched it, where it’s been. Sometimes it’s cool, sometimes it’s overwhelming.
That sounds difficult. Do you get readings from everything you touch?
Sort of. Over time it became like background noise, you know. You can sit in a crowded cafeteria and hear hundreds of students talking all around you and still tune them out to a certain extent. That’s what I have to do with objects. The problem arises when I touch something supernaturally charged.
Our last case. There was a spirit board that three angry ghosts came through. I felt their emotions, their turmoil. It was awful. Psychic energy takes an object from a background hum in my mind to a scream that’s impossible to ignore. On that note—spirit boards are dangerous. Don’t play with them. Ever.
Good advice. I say never mess with things you don’t understand.
What do you do when you aren’t out doing paranormal investigations?
I love acting. I’m usually in about four plays a year. Soccer is also starting up now which is my favorite sport to play. I’m only about three months from my black belt in Tae Kwon Do. But really, the Circle keeps us pretty busy. There’s no shortage of paranormal disasters.
I noticed that every Circle member seems to be involved in martial arts.
It’s a requirement. We investigate all sorts of things, not just hauntings. Several months ago, I went on a hunt for a rogue werewolf who refused to follow the pack to safe hunting grounds during the full moon. That has disaster written all over it. Knowing how to defend ourselves is important in the field. We also train with silver daggers. They do damage to lots of supernatural creatures including vampires and werewolves.
Does it scare you? Hunting vampires?
I haven’t been on a vampire hunt yet. But, yes, it does scare me… quite a bit actually.
Then why do it?
Someone has to. I was born with a gift. I want to help people with it. If vampires start killing people in our area, then I’ll hunt them with my friends.
What does your family think of your psychic gift?
That is a long story and not one I’d like to go into. My father is a renowned psychiatrist in the field of delusional disorders. To him, psychic powers are a delusion. Enough said.
I’m sorry about your family. It must be hard to lack the support.
 I have the Orion Circle. We are a family and we support each other. I feel sorry for people like my father—too closed-minded to experience everything this world has to offer.
Let’s end on a positive note. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’d love to go on a paranormal tour of England and Scotland—especially the Tower of London. Though, I’d have to wear gloves. Can you imagine the anguish contained in those walls? I’d hate to accidentally touch something… unpleasant.
And fictional world? Where would you go?
Hmm, how about Wonderland. I’ve spent several years being told I’m insane. It’d be nice to go someplace where everyone is crazier than I am.
