It was around this time two years ago that I signed my first publishing contract. I think that anniversary makes me pause, just like the anniversary of my father's death makes me pause, my birthday makes me pause, etc.
I had a brief moment of panic this weekend. Am I releasing too many books too often? Should I back off? Should I wait?
Here's the scenario: I had 4 books release last year, two of which are in print now. This year I will have 4 more new books out and 5 total… 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!"
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.
Long time no see. I see you/ve been busy. Same here. Wish I had more time to chat with my crimespace friends. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. Whatever happened to the 24-hour day? Mine suddenly got reduced to twelve. Seems like I had more time when I was younger. Sold a couple of short stories to magazine since I talked to you last. The life of "writing" sure is keeping me busy. I don't even have time for a "life" anymore.

By the way, where can I pick up one of your books?
It's just not Norman Rockwell's version of Christmas.
Make a snowball for me the next time you go outside.
I write the same kind of mysteries. Older detective, single, with morals; no overt violence. I like your description of your characters. My stories are set in a small town in Virginia. Lived all my life in north Georgia until our retirement to S.W. Florida. Wanna move back as soon as the housing market gets better. We have no change of seasons down here. Basically, it's year-round summer.
