Susan Quinn (susan_kaye_quinn) | 21 comments Hello all, my name is Susan Kaye Quinn, and I've been a fan of science fiction since I first read Heinlein’s Foundation series as a kid. I was always a math/science geek, but science fiction made me a literary lover too. I grew up to be a serious engineer (worked for NASA, got a Ph.D.), but I was drawn back to stories, and now I write them for children and teens. I have one published teen love story (Life, Liberty, and Pursuit) and my new paranormal/science fiction novel Open Minds just came out.

Open Minds (Book One of the Mindjack Trilogy) by Susan Kaye Quinn OPEN MINDS
When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.

Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can’t read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can’t be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf’s mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she’s dragged deep into a hidden world of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.

REVIEWS

"I’m not entirely sure Susan Kaye Quinn didn’t jack into my mind herself to make me fall in love with this book! This book is full of awesome."—5 stars from Jade Hankes

"Wow oh Wow! I just inhaled this book. Quinn is an amazing author with an even more amazing imagination. In some ways Kira reminds me a lot of Katniss from the Hunger Games series." — 5 stars from TwiMom101 Book Blog

"Wow – just when I was getting a little bored of YA a book like this comes along and just wows me back! The writing is easy to fall into and flowing allowing quick immersion in this fascinating world. I was holding my breath right up until the last page" - 5 stars from Mel's Random Reviews
