John Edward McGee, Jr. was born October 19, 1969 in Glen Cove, New York. Edward says he was convinced at a young age that he could become a psychic. After writing his first book on the subject in 1998, Edward became a well-known and controversial figure in the United States through his shows broadcast on SCI FI Channel beginning in July 2000 and We TV since May 2006. Edward published his first book, One Last Time, in 1998. His related appearance on Larry King Live later in the year prompted enough phone calls to overload the show's switchboard. The next year, Edward had a show of his own. From 1999 to 2004, he was the producer and host of the show Crossing Over with John Edward, which has been syndicated and was broadcast on SCI FI Channel in the United States and on LIVINGtv in the UK. He has authored several books such as One Last Time: A Psychic Medium Speaks to Those We Have Loved and Lost, Practical Praying: Using the Rosary to Enhance Your Life, Infinite Quest: Develop Your Psychic Intuition to Take Charge of Your Life, and Fallen Masters.
