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.
I haven't used Crimespace as much as I would like to -- everytime I come here, I start reading posts and before I know it, an hour is gone. :-)
I'd love to meet you too, and I'm sure I will one day.
Meredith, so many of us talked about how we wished we could have been there with you. It must have been an incredible thrill. Hard to believe I know so many of the winners this year...even Nancy Means Wright!
Lesa, it's comforting to hear that I'm no worse off than Dennis Lehane in the procrastination department. Someone needs to invent a computer-connected chair that shocks the sitter if she opens a web browser or email.
My energy? I admire the authors here for their energy, writing and still having time to blog. It might be a way to avoid writing though. I was corresponding regularly with Dennis Lehane when he agreed to appear at the Lee County Reading Festival when I was Authors Chair a number of years ago. He was working on Mystic River at the time. I only knew he was working on a novel. But he answered my emails immediately when I had a question. I said even then I thought it was a way to avoid writing.
Are you all sure this isn't just one more way to avoid writing? Here I prudently lock myself inside my office for my allotted hours on the novel, and find you all in here with me! So this is what blogging gets me into. I'm no natural joiner - but one thing leads to another, and here I am anyway. Thanks for the welcome.
Welcome. I appreciate your position, having just transitioned myself. In 2005, I sold my first novel. It jsut came out in March 2007. I have two more under contract, and in the pipeline. It was 13 years from getting serious to getting a sale. Believe me when I say that I know where you are as a writer.
