About Me:
I'm a 4-year amateur sleuth whodunit writer, with a seriies (3 first-drafts, 1 "finished" and looking for agent draft, and one 2/3-done draft. Writing since I was 8 (that's X decades), I've dabbled in lots of genres, including songwriting (hence, Nashville).
In addition, I am a creativity and life coach, supporting people in attaining their dreams and manifesting their best possible selves. Please visit my website and my blog, for thoughts and conversations about creativity and goal attainment.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer, Editor
Books And Authors I Like:
Nora Roberts (don't throw anything hard at me, please), sci-fi writers, Michener, Malcolm Lowry, Walt Whitman, and almost everyone else.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Anything that gets my mind off my own reality. I think "Reality Shows" are theater of the absurd and a high form of comic entertainment.

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!"

Book Synopsis:

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.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Welcome Batya...I published a story a few years ago set in Nashville about a songwriter turned private eye...I could have used your imput. Maybe if I do another short story about him I might pick your brain.

You'll have to ask the real person in this photo about how long it took to get tatted up this rad. As for how to use this website--who knows? Darren Laws is one of your friends (something of a hoot I have to tell you that). He is also one of mine--though I too only know he's a fellow author. Not made personal contact with Mr. Laws as yet. You too were in Madison. I believe we crossed paths, though my memory of conferences is normally somewhat foggy afterward.

This is my picture when you're on drugs. (For my actual pic, go to I was referred your way by Darren Laws. And that about sums it up. Nora Roberts. Hmm. You like reading the same book over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and . . .

Not sure about your opinion of "reality shows" though.
At 5:40am on January 2, 2008, JackBludis said…
Hey, I'm of the opinion that Nora Roberts, along with Stephen King may be the two most remembered authors of the latter part of the 20th Century.
