I'm a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of romantic thrillers. To date, I have nine books on the shelf and three more coming out next year. I love writing--this is my dream job and what I've wanted to do since I was little. But I was a reader first, and still love to lose myself in a good book, preferably crime fiction in any subgenre. I used to work in the California State Legislature, I have five kids, and for fun I play video games.
Tess Gerritsen, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, JD Robb, Stephen King, Lisa Gardner, Linda Howard, Mariah Stewart, Jonathan Kellerman, Linda Barnes, Linda Fairstein, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jennifer Crusie, James Rollins, Dean Koontz, Heather Graham, John Saul, Roxanne St. Claire, Kay Hooper, Tami Hoag, true crime and forensic books, and I'm sure I'm missing a lot . . .
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
TV: Heroes, Supernatural, Law & Order, Lost, Deadwood
Movies: Classics like The Thin Man, The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, Notorious . . . New classics like Star Wars and Indiana Jones (1 & 3, not 2 & 4!); current like The Departed, French Kiss & Working Girl (romantic comedies), Pixar movies, hmmm . . . there's more, but I haven't been to the movies in awhile!

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”
Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."
Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"
The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
