"They Come From Above" and "Retribution"



I am fortunate that David Cranmer saw a piece of microfiction that two other editors had rejected, and he decided that it could be more, and that it could have a greater audience.



With plenty of encouragement from David, Elaine Ash, and Katherine Tomlinson, that story became fuller and richer. I encourage you to see the end result, "They Come… Continue

Kevin,

Snow is a great motivator, in more ways than one. In my case, not only would being snow-bound force me to write, I would also do anything I could to get away from that cold.

Hey Cormac-
Great to hear form you. I've been a member of CrimeSpace for a while but never got around to updating my page or paying much attention to it (being snowbound on the weekend created all kinds of free time). Looking forward to catching up with your writing!
Best-

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.
