Allison Dubois wears many hats, including her newest, as bestselling author of Don't Kiss Them Good-Bye. Fireside published the book with a 110,000-copy printing, and is now up to 140,000 after two additional printings. The cover line on the book's jacket describes the author's other hat: "The true story of the woman who inspired the hit NBC television series Medium." Dubois has been busy promoting her book as well as doing ongoing publicity with NBC to cross-promote the book and Medium. Dubois discovered her ability to communicate with the dead at an early age and now uses her abilities to help solve crimes. According to the publisher, her talents have been validated by researchers at the University of Arizona.
