Midwest Book Reviews says:
Wow! What a read. I have to say that this story takes you by the tail and does not let go. It has mysteries that reaches into dark areas of the mind and flashs them before you, and characters that you love, and those that you hate. It has chilling adventure as the race for the life of the innocent takes place and the evil is not far behind, and you know if it catches the innocent their lives are over. I wish I
could tell you more about this story but I do not want to give anything away. Just trust me, this tale packs a wallop and is truly a story you will not soon forget. You really will wonder, could this happen? Adventure, Romance, Danger and Innocence....all packed into one great read. Recommended.

Meet the Author

Deborah Nicholson has always loved the arts. She studied dance for over ten years. She took drama in school, working as playwright, stage manager and director. She studied music for almost 20 years and taught music for ten years. She moved into medical administration but kept up her love of arts by working and volunteering at the Calgary Centre for Performing arts where she worked in various positions.

The culmination of her career at the Centre was as House Manager for Theatre Calgary. Leaving this position, the longing to still go to the theatre every night, led to the creation of the popular Kate Carpenter Mystery Series. Mind Games is her first thriller.

Since being published, Deborah has done several workshops and readings to encourage people who dream of writing to stop dreaming and start writing. She has joined several organizations, very interested in literacy and mentorship.

She has made numerous appearances on The Breakfast Show, Shaw Television and was a featured performed in "The Letters". Deborah is a member of Mystery Writers Ink, The Alexandra Writers Society, Crime Writers of Canada, The Alberta Writers Guild, and Romance Writers of America. Deborah is a great supporter of charity and volunteerism and donates 10% of all profits of her novels to charity.

In 2009 Deborah wrote The Pain Diaries, a play based on her experience at the Chronic Pain Centre. She spent three years researching the topic, interviewing patients and experts in the field. The play won the CPS Pain Awareness Award in May 2009 and was then workshopped in December 2009. Two sold-out public readings happened in February 2010, followed by a one week run at the Grand Theatre in Calgary in May 2010. A movie adaptation of The Pain Diaries is currently in production.
