Overview

Aspiring actor Jordan Patrick is rapidly realizing the world has no use for another theatre student. Desperate to prove his talents have value, he agrees to work for Dr. Foster, a psychologist who secretly hires performers to infiltrate the everyday lives of his patients, and then stage situations which advance their therapy.

This part-time job becomes Jordan's toughest role yet as he's assigned to follow an eccentric patient named Julie, lie his way into her life, and help Foster rebuild her trust in men.

White Oleander author Janet Fitch raved, "Kevin Alex Baker is a rare find, and Head Games is a sweet discovery, a ripping page-turner."

Meet the Author

Kevin Baker
Kevin Alex Baker learned how powerful words can be on his fifth birthday, when he was hit by a bookmobile.

His resulting phobia of literature catalyzed his interest in psychology, and as he pondered a life filled with the non-stop excitement of clinical research, Kevin dreamed up a radical new approach to modern therapy. The one problem was no matter how effective it might be, running the program would cause any ethics committee to strip him of his license. Kevin didn't have the guts to defy them himself, so he wrote a story about a therapist who did. The idea grew, and as Kevin overcame his fear of books, the story evolved into Head Games, his first novel.

Head Games was written in Studio City, California and Waikiki, Hawai'i, where his chances of accidentally encountering a book were incredibly low.

Kevin lives and writes in San Francisco, California, and would love to hear from you at kevinalexbaker@gmail.com.
