Bio: Christine Amsden was born and raised in the St. Louis area, which inspired the setting for her first novel, "Touch of Fate." She started writing shortly after learning to pick up a pencil, and though she majored in Computer Science and Psychology in college, she never lost her love of the written word. She writes more fantasy and science fiction than anything else, but hopes to make these genres accessible to everyone by portraying characters anyone can relate to.
Marianne has long been able to predict the future, but is powerless to alter its course. When her daughter inherits her dreaded power, she decides to make a change and move across the country. To her surprise and delight, she discovers that she is not alone--five new friends have similar abilities. Then Marianne finds one of those friends murdered. With the help of Detective Derek Richards, she must find the murderer before the murderer finds her.
