The Rothston Institute can secretly manipulate the decisions of anyone in the world - from ordinary 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? A Congressman ruined in scandal? 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.
The Kirkus Review calls Foreseen a "nuanced page turner" and "a worthy sci-fi thriller."
Science/Fantasy author Terri-Lynne Smiles has a degree in philosophy from Denison University and in law from the University of Michigan. She lives in central Ohio with her husband and the world's most loving but intellectually challenged dog, where she is hard at work crafting novels filled with realistic characters, heart-pounding suspense and a bit of a puzzle for the characters and readers to chew on.
Her debut novel, "Foreseen," Book 1 of the Rothston Series, traces the story of a young woman with the ability to change the decisions of those around her, is touted as a "nuanced page turner," and a "worthy sci-fi thriller a la Dean Koontz" by the Kirkus Review, and is "much recommended" by the Midwest Book Review.
