“An adventurous twist of genre.” Midwest Book Review
The Rothston Institute can secretly manipulate the decisions of anyone in the world – from friends to government leaders. Possessing special mental skills used to accomplish its goals, college student Kinzie Nicolosi is training to protect humankind from self-destruction. A student missing an exam? A construction worker fired for an industrial accident? Necessary consequences of honing her skills for the greater good.
But Kinzie brings more than her remarkable talent to Rothston. She bears an unexpected power that rivals Rothston’s own … and the clash may be something none of them can control.

Listen critically to the advice of others as to changes your should make in your writing. Some will be telling you to write what the market wants at that moment, others will be telling you how to improve to write the best book that YOU want to write.

I wrote Foreseen as the first in a series to explore the morality of using the influence each of us have over the decisions of others – when is it appropriate and when is it an infringement of the autonomy of others? It was important to me, though, to explore this question in an well-paced, accessible story, and thus set the story to follow college student Kinzie Nicolosi as she learns she has a special skill to change the decisions of others without them knowing, and her entrance into the mysterious Rothston Institute which employs such people to protect humankind from its own destruction.
