This is what my official profile at IPI (International Paranormal Investigations at says. Like that's all that matters about me, how powerful I am, what's my threat level, what can I do.
This is all that mattered to Rent-A-Kid too, though I didn't know it at the time. They used me as a spy, rich people spying on other rich people so they could all get richer. Whatever. You want to know the real me? Look at my best friends, Luke and Lucy. Look at my art work. Talk to my boyfriend. They can tell you the important stuff.

Like, I love art more than anything. I love painting and drawing and going to museums. I'm a total geek about it and could spend days and days in a studio or museum just absorbing colors and shapes and images. My favorite movie is X-Men, for obvious reasons. (Come on, you know it's funny!) I totally hate Palm Trees. Seriously, they're the ugliest trees in the world and I dont know why people like them.
I'm sometimes shy and often end up on the wrong side of a bully's attentionmostly Mary, she's such a witch. (Not a real witch, just, you know, witch with a 'b'.) I'm working on standing up for myself more though.
I'm really loyal to the people I love and would do anything for them, and I can't wait to go to Sarah Lawrence and study art.

So this is just a little about me, but you'll never really know me if you dont spend some time with me.
And sadly, you'll never know me as well as I will know you. I can read minds after all, and I know what you're thinking right now!

Forbidden Mind Blurb

49% of Americans believe their government officials are honest. I don't know these officials, or their supporters, but I know their secrets, and 49% of Americans are wrong.

My employers pay me well to be right, to know things others can't. But I don't know why they brought that boy in, strapped to a stretcher, barely conscious. He asked me for help when I could give none.

I'm a wealthy spy, a talented artist, a martial arts black belt, and a prisoner. They tell me that on my eighteenth birthday, I will be released, free to go to the college of my dreams. It's my eighteenth birthday, and a man in black is at my door. I know he's not here to free me.

I know, because I can read minds.

My name is Sam, and this is my story.

So begins the tale of Sam and Drake--from the time they link minds, forging a bond that leads to an unconventional romance--to their fight for survival against the corrupt, twisted organization known as 'Rent-A-Kid.'  

"...a thrilling, dark and deeply romantic read that had me sitting on the edge of my seat and eagerly awaiting the next installment." ~ Refracted Light Young Adult Book Reviews

"The plot is very ALIAS and DARK ANGEL-like with X-MEN a sits backdrop (awesome combo!). Forbidden Mind BLEW my mind!" ~Sour Skittles Book Blog

  1. Thanks so much for participating in this!! :) I really appreciate it.

  2. I think I would like to be able to ready minds. That way I could be ready to respond correctly to the person. Altho if you could control a person's mind you wouldn't need to be able to read it, too. Changed my mind -- I'll go with controlling the person's mind.

  3. If I had to do one I would pick read.
