Profile Information

Kennesaw, Georgia (at present: Cape Coral, FL)
About Me:
Former Cobb County Georgia Deputy Sheriff; author of two published mystery novels; Switched; and Say Aloha to Murder. Both novels are continuing series of Detective James Hardrock,a dedicated and hardworking policeman solving crimes in the small town of Hopewell, Virginia. I am a wife, mother, & grandmother. I like to go boating and camping (as long as I have my creature comforts) And, of course, I like to write - Not so much for money, but for enjoyment. If the big break comes, that's terrific, but if it doesn't, then that's okay, too. I'll still keep writing because I enjoy creating. I enjoy exploring my characters and see what direction they'll take. My fictional detective is really ME. When my life changes, his life changes; when I learn new techniques, so does he. His thoughts are mine.
I am a member of Mystery Writer's of America, Sisters in Crime, American Business Women's Association, Toastmasters, and the Peace River Center for Writers. I am also a contributing writer for Women's Digest.
In addition to writing, I have a full-time job as an accountant.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
Mysteries are what I read and like. Anything with a "puzzle" to solve. Mary Higgins Clark, Carol Higgins Clark, Janet Evanovich, Agatha Christy, & Arthur Conan Doyle are some of my favorites. I also like Nora Roberts and Ann Voss Peterson. Sidney Sheldon bears mentioning, also. Bill Crider and Anne White are two of my favorite "cozy" mystery writers.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
I love all the CSI shows. I sit and watch them with a pad and pencil in my lap. I take lots of notes. It comes in handy when I write. I like the British murder mysteries that are shown on the PBS stations. Any movie or TV show with a "mystery" to it, such as Murder, She Wrote; Matlock; and Perry Mason. NCIS is my favorite - Love Mark Harmon! Watching old murder mystery movies is a hobby I enjoy: The Thin Man series, The Shadow, The Saint (with George Sanders),

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.

Thanks for the tip on the Midwest Book Review. I know some people who are actively trying to get their books reviewed, or looking for a place to write reviews. I'll be sure to pass it along.

I saw a similar article, about turning good books into bad movies. I think Revolutionary Road has a lot of critics stirred up. It was a wonderful book, but I hear the movie just doesn't get it.

Thanks for the friend invite. That was a good discussion you started. A lot of fun, and I learned a few things, which is why I like them.

Hi Charlotte,

It was an interesting discussion, yes. Did you close the comments? It didn't seem to be getting entirely out of hand, but maybe I have a higher-than-average tolerance for internet foolery than most...

Auto tag? I used to work in accounting, so I have great sympathy for you right now . . . ;)

Yes, I received the magazine and we loved your story; it was awesome! The article that you wrote was very professional and well-written, too. You have a very delightful, pleasing writing style and I predict that you're going to be very much in demand from now on. Keep up the good work, Charlotte!
