Thus reads an article in the Waverly Times, which is Exhibit A in this fresh and inventive story about ESP, friendship, sisterhood, and the ties that bind. Told by the characters themselves, Mind Games crackles with personality and reveals how each student tries to prove that ESP exists and what he or she discovers along the way. Funny and engaging, the individual voices are right on target, revealing the complex relationships and characters of the members of the Mad Science Club. Here they grapple with life, death, love, and the lottery - all before they reach the eighth grade!
Ford studied at Johns Hopkins University, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1992. She then proceeded to Vermont College of Norwich University, graduating in 2001 with a Master of Fine Arts degree.
Ford, a staff writer for the Days of Our Lives television soap opera, is also the author of Mind Games, a book based, in part, on the author's memories of her eighth-grade science fair project on Extra-Sensory Perception. In Mind Games, members of the seventh-grade Mad Science Club at Clearview Middle School decide to do an experiment on ESP. The six students include a genius, a Russian immigrant, a pair of identical twins, one an honor roll student, and the other slightly brain-damaged, a Korean girl, and a boy whose mother has just died.
The project involves testing the group's ESP skills on lottery tickets. The group wins five hundred dollars in the process, as well as top honors in the science fair. The book is written as short pieces, each from the point of view of the different characters. Each student is also dealing with personal issues, and the project helps them to deal with their own problems, as well as to understand each other a little better.
In 2007, Ford also worked on a CBS show, As the World Turns. She then was a scriptwriter on One Life to Live, a soap opera broadcast on the ABC.
She is also an English teacher at Hagerstown Community College.
