A MOTHER whose daughter died from carbon monoxide poisoning has written a biography after a psychic helped her recover from her grief.
Jill Prior and husband Roger, formerly of Shepley, lost their daughter, Lisa, a talented ballet dancer and teacher, 15 years ago.
But the family say that last October they received a supernatural message from Lisa through psychic medium Stephen Holbrook.
The Priors, who now work as agents for Mr Holbrook in south-west England, met him at Slaithwaite Spiritualist Church in the 1990s.
They say he enabled them to contact Lisa, a former teacher at the elite Central School of Ballet in London.
Lisa, a former pupil at the then Shelley High School, passed away aged 23.
The family were devastated by their loss, but they said that with Mr Holbrook's support they rebuilt their lives and now they help other people.
Mrs Prior, 64, who now lives in Somerset, said: "He was so amazing. He gave us a lifeline.
"Steve has gone from strength to strength. He's had a couple of books written about him, but nothing about the early years.
"I thought it would be nice if people knew how we came to meet him and how we have progressed since then.
"We were so shattered at Lisa's death when she was working towards her dreams and it was wiped out.
"Steve has this incredible natural ability. When Lisa came through for the first time it was an emotional message. It was fantastic.
"We've met so many people to whom supernatural things have happened and they won't speak because they fear they will be called nutters.
"A lot of people who go to Steve's evenings are sceptical, but many are converted."
