'FAST-PACED AND A LOT OF FUN . . . A MODERN ACTION MOVIE THAT JUST HAPPENS TO BE IN BOOK FORM' The Fantasy Inn on The Girl Who Could Move Sh
*t with her Mind

Teagan Frost has enough sh
*t to deal with, between her job as a telekinetic government operative and a certain pair of siblings who have returned from the dead to wreak havoc with their powers. But little does she know, things are about to get even more crazy . . .

Teagan might have survived the flash-flood of the century, but now she's trapped in a hotel by a bunch of gun-toting maniacs. And to make matters worse, her powers have mysteriously disappeared. Faced with certain death at every turn, Teagan will need to use every resource she has to stop a plot that could destroy Los Angeles - maybe even the entire world.

Full of imagination, wit and random sh
*t flying though the air, this insane new Frost Files adventure will blow your tiny mind.

Fans of the series will be eagerly awaiting the further adventures of Teagan and her cohorts, and newcomers will quickly fall in love with Jackson's quirky cast of characters, imaginative storytelling, and wry wit * LIBRARY JOURNAL on EYE OF THE SH*T STORM * This third instalment fully delivers, with a breakneck pace, high stakes, and plenty of wisecracks... Gripping, suspenseful, and thoroughly enjoyable. An un-put-down-able, action-packed adventure that packs an emotional punch * KIRKUS on THE EYE OF THE SH*T STORM * Ford delivers a fantastic follow-up to The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With her Mind with this tale of earthquakes, superpowers and culinary ambition * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY * This second book about psychokinetic superspy Teagan is even more suspenseful than The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind.

Jackson Ford is clearly having a ball and his enthusiasm for the characters and plot continues to remain infectious. I find myself awaiting each new instalment with barely contained excitement. If you haven't checked this out already, I strongly advise that you do so. * THE ELOQUENT PAGE on EYE OF THE SH*T STORM * [A] smart, action-packed novel . . . New readers will be able to pick up here. Teagan's bright wit offsets the darker moments, and a curious cliff-hanger ensures that readers will be back for the next entry * BOOKLIST * Like Alias meets X-Men in a grimy LA setting. Full throttle from the opening page, this book gives urban sci-fi fans everything they could want with a spiky heroine, shady government agencies, high stakes and a diverse cast of characters.

Full throttle from the opening page, this book gives urban sci-fi fans everything they could want with a spiky heroine, shady government agencies, high stakes and a diverse cast of characters. I loved it! Proceeds at breakneck speed through almost 500 pages of madcap adventure, with some terrific jokes and plenty of tension Proceeds at breakneck speed through almost 500 pages of madcap adventure, with some terrific jokes and plenty of tension * GUARDIAN on THE GIRL WHO COULD MOVE SH*T WITH HER MIND * Teagan is a frank and funny narrator for this wild ride, which starts off with our heroine falling from the 82nd floor of a skyscraper and pretty much never slow down. Readers will be glad to learn that it's set for a sequel. A fast-paced, high-adrenaline tale that manages to get into some dark themes without losing its sense of fun Furious, frenetic, fun, and 'f*ck you': All equally valid descriptions of this book and its punk rock chef/psychic warrior protagonist. It's like the X-Men, if everybody was sick of each other's sh*t, they had to work manual labor to pay rent, and Professor X was a sociopathic government stooge. A drunken back-alley brawler of a book * Robert Brockway on THE GIRL WHO COULD MOVE SH*T WITH HER MIND * Ford's strengths are evident in the taut action sequences and suspenseful pacing Fast-paced and a lot of fun to read . . . If you're looking for a high-action contemporary fantasy with a bunch of irreverent humour, then this is your book . . . a modern action movie that just happens to be in book form * THE FANTASY INN on THE GIRL WHO COULD MOVE SH*T WITH HER MIND *
