Author answers allegations about Artist's Proof

Las Vegas, NV- June 13, 2008. Artist's Proof author answers allegations regarding DJ SINGER. While my closest friends and distant acquaintances have all claimed title to being DJ Singer, the heroine of my new book: Artist's Proof. However, the official statement says "…any resemblance to an actual individual or place is strictly a coincidence".

All that aside, their allegations are true.
DJ SINGER is a real person, alot of real people in my life. She is the consummate combination of every woman over 40. I wanted a character that felt real. Someone we could consider a close friend and confidant. The girlfriend you could talk to about family or job b.s. Everyone in my life had a place in DJ's character development. From those who have suffered from the "ticking clock" of perfect mates or having children, to those women who have made a decision only to suffer the angst of whether that decision was correct. Singer is a kaleidoscope of self-doubt, and false bravado. She tight-ropes the let it all hang out with doses of sterilizing mission control. DJ is a celebration of all my known and unknown sisters who have made it to forty-five in their lives and careers only to be welcomed to the stark reality of boredom, blood pressure and gravity. DJ loves her mother, but family baggage is a fact of life.

Yes, DJ SINGER is YOU, a celebration of your best and worst personalities. She's someone you can love. She's a woman after your own heart, who wears hers on her sleeve. So, when you delve into Artist's Proof, know that DJ is not as much about me, as she is about you, and together we'll all grow old with grace, dignity and a lot of laughs.
See you soon.

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.

Thanks for your comment. The key word in this business is persistence. Talent is the most important, but persistence is what eventually gets talent recognized.
