CRESSKILL, N.J. — Roe Rubinetti Cappiello was driving through a trestle on her regular commute to work one morning in 1999 when she was overcome by what felt like anxiety.

It was someone else’s presence, she said, presumably the ghost of a young boy who’d fallen from a nearby tree and died years before.

It was the first of several instances that Cappiello said awoke her ability to communicate with people who’ve passed on. She now uses what she says are psychic abilities to help others connect with loved ones.

“Mediumship is a destiny or contract you make before you even get here,” Cappiello said. “When someone becomes a medium to the extent where it’s used to help others, that’s part of a contract."

Cappiello will visit the Cresskill Public Library Oct. 14 to read and sign her 2014 book “Speaking From The Spirit."

Telepathic dreams and psychic premonitions that Cappiello said she experienced during childhood eventually developed into a full-blown mediumship. She compared her early experiences to those of Whoopi Goldberg’s character in the movie “Ghost.”

“Every spirit started to talk to me,” said Cappiello, who trained with mediums in England. “You can’t explain that kind of phenomenon. It was like one of those offers you can’t refuse.”

Cappiello delivered her first message on behalf of a young woman in town who died in 2000 when she saw the woman's sister passing by her house three days after the funeral. The woman broke down in tears and said her family had been “getting cardinals like crazy,” Cappiello said.

“I feel like I work for the spirits, not someone here on earth,” said Cappiello.

“I don’t grieve in the same exact way, but we do grieve because that’s part of being human,” she said, “whether you’re a medium or not.”

The book reading and signing begins at 7 p.m. at the Cresskill library, 53 Union Ave.
