Faith Wood is a Behaviorist, Certified Professional Speaker, Hypnotist, and Handwriting Analyst. Her interest in Behavior Psychology blossomed during her law enforcement career when it occurred to her if she knew what people really wanted, as well as motives behind their actions, she would be more effective in work and life. So, she hung up her cuffs, trading them in for traveling the world speaking to audiences to help them better understand human behaviors, and how they impact others. Wood speaks about how to tap into the area of the brain that controls actions which, in turn, have a tendency to adjust perceptions, thereby launching a more empowered life.

Chasing Rhinos (The Accidental Audience - Book #2) by Faith WoodI was chatting with a prospective client this morning when the challenge of navigating conflict in high performance sports came up. We were chatting about the body language and conflict strategies needed for officials in the sports world. The chat shifted to the mind set necessary to gain the biggest ROI from these discussions when the prospect hesitated. He felt that, although he is open (him... Read more of this blog post »

Faith Wood Got some wonderful feedback from a recent reader of my novel: The Accidental Audience.
I had a tough time reading your book in the pdf form. Only because I spend so much time in front of the computer at work that doing it at home is not my idea of a good time, I cannot see it outside on my laptop and my eyes get tired. SO I printed it off and could not put it down.

It was good, at one point I knew who were the bad guys, but _______________ (spoiler alert deleted from this note) as well!! I didn't see that coming!!

I enjoy your style of writing, I like how the point of view changes from chapter to chapter as that keeps you on your toes as to who is speaking. I enjoy the mix of everything you have put in this and am interested to learn about the relationships that have developed.

This book was an easy read but kept your mind trying to help solve who the kidnappers were. The ending left me wanting more - when's the next one coming out!?

Thank you for allowing me to read this - I cannot wait to purchase a copy!
