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.

Yeah, we were definitely in the minority, huh? I am planning on going again... I heard a rumor that they're going to do a humor panel, and I get to be on it.
Et tu?

Hi's Maryann from this year's LIM (I was the closet Colt fan). Are you coming again next year?

I don't think I'll make the book fair, but I will be at the Random House Book Fair in Westminster, MD at the Carroll Comm College. Maybe I'll see you there!

Hi Norm. Thanks for befriending me. I, too, have been sucked into the reality TV black hole. Top Chef and Project Runway are a couple of my guilty pleasures. There're more, but I need to maintain an illusion of dignity.

Profile Information

Near Chicago Il, and before that a suburb in Baltimore Maryland
About Me:
I might be a bit of a fish out of water here. My first two novels are humor/satire, but I keep hanging around the mystery writers at LIM and before that at Of Dark and Stormy. But I'm keeping the fins wet with a kidnapping thriller that I'm shopping around.
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
The list would be shorter if I listed the books that I DIDN'T like, but the short list includes Dean Koontz, Douglas Adams, Robert Crais, Carl Haaisen, Janet Evanovich, Dave Barry ...
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
I'm in REALITY SHOW HELL... I admit it, I watch Survivor, American Idol, ESPN... okay, a lot more of ESPN. I got sucked into the other stuff to spend time with my wife. And don't tell anyone, but I watched Nanny 911 more than once.

Check out what they're saying about The Adventures of Guy ... written by a guy (probably) and its brand new sequel, The Next Adventures of Guy ... more wackiness:

"... very strongly recommended as a profound, funny and persistently entertaining read from first page to last." Midwest Book Review.

"... a great read for both men and women." Pop Syndicate

"...hilarious mishaps...." Joliet Herald News

"...I'm glad I read it." FWOMP Reviews

"Everything in the book is so true, you can't help but laugh in agreement." Roundtable Reviews

"This book is funny."
Award-winning author Barbara D'Amato.

" touched my funny bone." author Robert W. Walker

GO ABTP! (chant, chant, chant)

Okay, first... a gloat.

My favorite team, ABTP won! Woo-hoo!

If you haven't guessed yet, ABTP stands for "Anybody But The Patriots."

Seriously, I'm a Colts fan, but regardless of what team I liked, I'd still hate

the Patriots ... unless I lived in Boston. Then I'd like the Patriots,

but I'd have to…

I'm not Richard Nixon!!

Okay, maybe by the end of this, you'll be going, 'sure, he's a politician like all the others."

Well, maybe, I have been kissing some babies lately. Their heads are all fuzzy and soft, so it can get kind of addicting. I guess I can

understand why the politicians do it all the time.

But why don't they kiss old people, or people with body odor? Old people need

comfort and love ... stinky people need, um, well, they can be lovable,

too ... from…

The Next Adventures of Guy ... more wackiness

Every Quest has to have an elf, a sorcerer, movie rights, special effects... and, most importantly, a sequel.

So in the hilarious sequel to The Adventures of Guy, Guy and his

college buddies Knob and Thurman take on a new quest... to save Earth

from alien invasion.

To so this, they must take on Big Oil and other sinister forces using

only their wits, their newfound powers and their knowledge of beer, all

while overcoming their own leader's lack of faith… Continue

Calling all humor writers, publishers, readers, and, um...

Romance writers have theirs, thriller writers have theirs, so do mystery writers and Sci Fi writers .. but not humor writers. That's why no one takes us seriously!

To help the cause, I just set up a humor writers Ning page, called (what else?) ... HA ! Humor Writers. If you're interested in joining yet another writer's social network, bring your Whoopie Cushions and head on over to (don't do the 'www' thing).

I'm the only member so…
