i am a reader and writer since highschool. I read everything from classic literary to true crime. I enjoy and I like to study the different psychological backgrounds and the people. As an undergrad, I became fascinated with abnormal psych and personality development. As I began to write, I realized how important the depth of personality was to my character development so I tend to collect as many textbooks as I do books on writing. i am a new yorker currently residing in North Carolina. I am a member of the Mystery Writers Association and the Carolina Crime Writers Association. I am also currently completing an associates program in Funeral Service. The knowledge has been invaluable for my writing.

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.
Because we met last fall in Cary, I wanted to let you know that I'll be back at the Cary Library doing the same thing I did last year. Any friends and acquaintances you'd care to let know? Date is Wed., Sept. 10. Warm regards, Chris
Thank you for reminding me that you were at the Cary library when I was there, and for your kind words. I think mysteries are an exciting genre to get hooked on for the study of abnormal psych! I wish you much joy in your own writing. Chris
