Mystery reader and writer. Working only one job now and it's a lot less driving. Won 3rd Place in Deadly Ink's Short Story Contest for "Bad Boy Burn" and all finalists were published in anthology. LITTLE SISTERS is published by Loretta Scott Miller of Shannon Road Press with my short story "Dough Boy." Love writing mystery short stories and currently plotting a novel.

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.
Hey, nice pic of you and the dog -- but you need to update your bio -- and you need to come play on Facebook. All the cool kids are doing it. Glad you're coming in to MBS tomorrow to help with Hallie Ephron and Tom Perry events!
Hi Sarah. I've asked a lot of people about Bouchercon and everyone says it's the place to be (especially the bar). It's a lot closer for me in Connecticut than you in LA, of course.
Thanks for the comment about the covers - I'm very happy with what Soho has done.
I've been criminally remiss on not thanking you for your terrific note. I'm glad you liked Little Gods. As authors we need to be prepared for all reactions, asking only an opportunity. As opposed to film, which is a collective experience of the audience, novels allow each reader to settle in with the story, to create their own connection with the material. Rarely do people walk out of a film (part is consciousness that others are watching, a kind of collective censorship of honest action and reaction), but readers often put down books that don't click for them. My feeling is that this is the way things should be, that your life is too precious in all of its mutlitasked microseconds to waste any of it doing something that isn't right for you, particularly when it's your 'free time.' Stay in touch.
