HipNJ Interviews Author & Medium Teresa St. Francis

HipNJ had the distinct privilege of sitting down for an interview with beloved medium Teresa St. Francis to discuss her new book What Happens The Day After?: Messages From Adolescent Suicides.

The book chronicles Teresa’s experiences getting in touch with adolescents who have tragically committed suicide, and sharing the harrowing conversations that followed. When you look for the book on Amazon, its high ratings and overwhelmingly positive comment section catch your eye – it is clear that this book has been making waves with not only parents of adolescents, but adolescents themselves seem to be finding this book at a tumultuous time in their lives. Amazon describes the book as “an enlightening, unique experience [that] is helpful to parents and students or those seeking answers to what happens after a loved one has passed.”

Actress, comedian and radio hostess Jenny McCarthy wrote the foreword for the book, and continued to praise the book:
“Teresa has written a wonderful book … delivering an unswerving message that speaks with the voice of those teenage kids who took their own lives. They have found a voice in Teresa, who I would call an almost unwitting medium for these kids to once again speak out loud to the living.”

Teresa’s passion for her work is clear not only in her writing, but in the very way she talks about the book and the peace she hopes it can bring to her readers.
