I'm a writer with three books so far - ARTISTIC LICENSE, DEADLY BLESSINGS, and DEADLY INTEREST from Five Star. Coming up in January, 2008, STATE OF THE ONION debuts from Berkley Prime Crime.
I also enjoy writing short stories. A couple of them have even won awards.... "Strictly Business" from THESE GUNS FOR HIRE (anthology), "Dissident" from ALL THE RAGE THIS YEAR, and "Life's Work" from STAR TREK, STRANGE NEW WORLDS Volume VII, to name a few...

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.
Yeah, sometimes I feel like George Wendt, then, uh I don't. Anyway, my horror-scope said I'd better stay away from Indiana in October, so I won't be there. I checked out the lineup though... looks fun... good peeps.
Have a few things lined up otherwise, Baltimore next month... signed up for LIM too. Also Orland and Joliet, so I'll be around and atriangle.
Yep, it's me from the Five Star forum. Looks like you've got a lot going, too. "Artistic License" looks like a book I should check out. One of my favorite classes in college was art history; so the world of paint and canvas and frescos is something that I find very appealilng. And you've got a book coming out from Berley Prime Crime. Very nice! Much success to you.
