I've got three novels, two comic books, and two screenplays alive and well (proof of life available upon request) in my head and the only mystery is...will I ever get them published or sold? Stay tuned, true believer!

The Straw Men...the Comic Book

This is a review I did for

If you have never read Michael Marshall’s novel, “The Straw Men”, your life is surely poorer for it. One of the best horror thrillers ever written, it is comprised of two seemingly separate stories: one (told in third person) about a serial killer of children, The Upright Man, and the two people pursuing him; the other (told in first person) a man’s quest to discover a secret life that his recently deceased parents kept hidden from him.… Continue

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.

I didn't want to finish the book because I knew the author had committed suicide, and there would never be another.....

Hi Greymalkin, thanks for accepting my friendship request. I was in the Army, thanks for asking. I'm a comic book lover myself. I haven't been keeping up like I used to. Well, good talking with you, hope to speak with you more in the near future.

Oh, there's lots of stingers in this here Wall Street hive, for sure (can you say "Oil bubble"?) and the bearish bees outnumber the bullish by a good margin. No matter where you turn it's four shades of ugly out there. My ducats encased in my mattress are better off where they are for the time being.

would you believe, I never noticed your compliment about my page! I worked so hard writing that I dont see straight sometimes.
wall street, eh? some hive and with loads of stingers right? but are there bullish bees and bearish bees?!
At 7:26pm on June 21, 2008, carole gill said…
you'll get them published!
We just have to have that goal and go for it!
Thanks so much for your offer with help for research. so sweet of you!
I just don't have my finger on the beat that is New York anymore or even America! been here too long.
so I set the thing in the 1950's.
it's a time that though I was a child, I can still remember how I felt about things.
I grew up in Washington Heights where my story is set.
I remember the Michael Farmer killing and mention it in my work. that happened in '57.
we moved to 19th street and 2nd, when I was still in high school btw.
you're so lucky to have the magnificent Fifth Ave. Public library on your doorstep.
best and thanks so much!
I might take you up on that!
and it works both ways! if you ever decide to write about the U.K. I know a swell Police Officer who works in West Yorkshire, he's writing screenplays for t.v. (trying to sell them but it looks hopeful)
