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.

What you must do is pick a time for your writing and stick to it. Write every single day while the kids are at school.

It is interesting, since I've been making the rounds on these social networks I keep running into my former WDS students. Small world! How're you doing with your writing?

Tempe keeps me busy!

Yeah it's a part of my all around geekhood. It's from John Constantine: Hellblazer....The same John Constantine that Keanu Reeves warped in the movie.

(I only wish I had the nerve to get A tattoo...let alone something like that!)

We had a couple of nasty cases locally.

But even fictional characters can cause you head aches. Look what JK Rowling went through because of Muggles...

Read, write, and family. Those are the basics!
In response to your discussion, be careful in talking
about real people, especially those that are sue-happy.
Even if they can't win in court, they can make you miserable.

What did you prefer as far as type of law? Criminal, family ...

I liked wills and estates, and criminal. I know doesn't sound exciting but there was some definitely interesting cases.

I thoroughly enjoyed working in the legal arena. In fact, I( went to law school for a year and a half, but found I had not time for anything, etc. However, the time I went to law school has served me well in writing.
Bye, Betty Gordon

Deirdre, nice to hear from you and to know we share a love for Phyllis Whitney. I, too, have kept her books and read them from time to time The writing world is much richer for Ms. Whitney's talent.
