Praise for Travels with My Father


"I knew the author both personally and professionally during my years in law enforcement. Travels brought both worlds together for me and reminded me of those times working with Nancy in Wilmington (DE) how difficult and tedious her role was in assisting investigators to bring the tough cases to a successful conclusion. A great read for any and all!"

Jay Ingraham, Detective (Ret.)

Wilmington (DE) Police Department


"Travels with My Father offers a fascinating insight into how a woman who would later become a renown psychic detective discovered her abilities with the help of her by-then-deceased father. Nancy Myer, (who was known to us as Nancy Czetli), provided our family with startlingly accurate information about the murder of our daughter, Kaitlyn Arquette. We'll be forever grateful."

Lois Duncan

Author of Who Killed My Daughter? and One to the Wolves


"I met Nancy Myer years ago and have seen her predictions come true. Travels with My Father is a fascinating look at the world through the eyes of one who sees more than most of us. I couldn't put it down.

Leslie Rule

The Story


A most unusual ghost story


Have you ever wondered...

  • What's it like to be psychic?
  • How can psychic abilities be developed?
  • What happens to the soul after death?
  • Are ghosts real?

Psychic Nancy Myer (formerly Nancy Czetli) knows the answers to these questions. Nancy is the author of the 1993 hardcover, Silent Witness: The Story of a Psychic Detective (New York: Birch Lane Press), and knew from an early age that she was different from other people. She could feel things that others couldn't; she could connect with nature and with those who had died. She could see the past—and the future, and was labeled a “star child.” Her father possessed some of these intuitive abilities as well, and it was his passing and return visits from “the other side of life” that unlocked the true nature and extraordinary gifts of one of America's most important psychic investigators.

Travels with My Father traces Nancy Myer’s evolution as a person with psychic abilities, her struggle to accept the intuitive gifts she was given, and her desire to lead a “normal” life raising three energetic children. When the highest-ranking official in the Delaware State Police asks her to use those psychic gifts to help solve murder cases, Nancy’s normal life turns upside down, and she begins an unorthodox career that forces her to deal with what she calls “the worst of humanity.” Her intuitive gifts have stunned even the most skeptical law enforcement officials and to date, she has consulted on about 800 missing-person and murder cases, often receiving guidance and support from the ghost of her father in the form of whispers in the ear or in-person visits.

Part love story and part mystery, with vivid descriptions of some of her toughest criminal cases, Travels with My Father explores the most profound questions of the universe: What is our purpose here on earth? What happens at the end of a lifetime? Where does the soul go?

As Nancy reveals in the remarkable story of her relationship with her father, before his death and after, the end isn’t really an end at all, but merely a transition to new worlds. And as she details in recounting many travels with her father, and his return to both Nancy and her mother, "Death can't stop love."

The Author


Nancy Myer was born in New York State and spent her youth traveling. Her father worked in the U.S. Foreign Service, work that took him to Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, and Afghanistan. Nancy went to high school in Beirut, Lebanon. After high school she returned to Delaware, her father's home state, attended the University of Delaware, and graduated with degrees in Spanish and English. While in Delaware she married, adopted two sons Blake and Travis, and gave birth to a daughter, Heidi.


Over the years, Nancy’s psychic abilities expanded and she began to express to people the impressions she was picking up. This caused an unexpected problem as friends would visit and not go home because they wanted to ask her questions all night. Finally she set up office hours so that she could get some rest and take care of her children. That's the odd way in which Nancy's career as a psychic got started.


During a community college seminar in which she demonstated psychometry, Nancy was handed a ring for a reading. Nancy held the ring in hand and looked not at the person who had handed it to her, but at another man who turned out to be the ring’s owner. She began talking about a new job that this man was about to start and he interrupted her and said that no one knew about his new job—as head of the Delaware State Police. For the next nine weeks this police officer tried to convince Nancy to try police work. She did not believe it would be effective but finally gave in to get him to stop calling, and thus began a distinguished career as a psychic detective. She has worked 780 missing persons and murder cases and has given new information that proved to be correct 90 percent of the time.

Nancy continues to do readings and work on criminal cases. She has appeared on the national broadcast series, Unsolved Mysteries, Geraldo, Psychic Detectives, Psychic Investigators, and on many local and national radio and television interview shows.


Nancy completed her Masters in writing and is almost finished with her doctorate in education. Fulfilling one of her own predictions from a vision at age nine that she would one day be a published author, she wrote Silent Witness: the True Story of a Psychic Detective with co-author Steve Czetli, and now Travels With My Father: Life, Death, and a Psychic Detective. She is currently working on her first novel and on a series of historical books for children, the Little Miss Stout series, based on her grandmother's childhood on the docks of New York. Nancy also teaches college writing and Spanish, and in her spare time continues to write.


She lives in Western Pennsylvania near her son Travis, his wife Rhonda, and his two children, Trey and Kaitlyn. Heidi also lives nearby in Pittsburgh with her wife Diane and children Joshua and Sarah. Her eldest son Blake lives in Florida where he indulges his love for fishing. Nancy lives with her black lab Herbie, 114 pounds of enthusiasm and hilarity.
