Fresno, CA. Have lived in many different towns & cities in US of A.
Having retired early from Special Education teaching in CA, I moved to Tennessee. Living in a small town, I depend upon the company of books. It is a treat to have the next chapters waiting for me at bedside, - ah....! Like most of us I tend to follow an author, or a place in time and history. The final unveiling of DeepThroat, lead me back to JE Hoover, and then the Kennedy administration and so on. Like a web, it can just keep growing. I happened up Carol O'Connell and quickly read all of her "smart" crime mysteries. After finishing one read, I usually am still ruminating about it for days.

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.
Yes, I worked with Mark. And, yes, he got a bit of a raw deal, but much of it was of his own making. Mark was arrogant and inmature (at the time), BUT if I was murdered, I'd want him investigating the case. Mark was not a racist, heck, he was the godfather of a black sergeant's child.
He's also a good writer and presents himself well on the radio.
