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.
YOU ARE AWESOME! Glad I have you for my Crimespace and Book Place friend. My holidays were wonderful and Santa was very good to me. I count my blessing, for I know things could be worst. Bless you and Happy New Year. (Loved your artwork)
I sent you a message, but I don't think it took. (I think I hit the wrong button) Thanks for the kudos. Glad you enjoyed the story. I'm not much interested in much of anything these days. I sit and worry about our investments dwindling away. That money is supposed to last us thorugh our old age, but if things keep going as they are, we'll wind up working through our old age. I didn't think things could get much worse, but now I can understand why they were so many suicides back in 1929 when the market crashed. Here's a joke that someone sent me:
Garfield: "I was so depressed last night thinking about the up-coming election, I called Lifeline.
Got a freakin' call center in Pakistan, told them I was suicidal. They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck."
I feel like Garfield. Prayer doesn't seem to work lately. I'm so depressed. What do you suggest?
Yeah. Signed up and already have several pen pals. It's great. Other writers love to share what they know. I've already learned some hot tips. Look (in the mail) for the Autumn issue of the magazine with my short story in it. You should be receiving it in the next few days.
I'm trying to set up a blog tour for my new historical novel, Escape, and it's definitely helping to keep my mind off my daughter--except at night. You're such a sweet, caring person. I hope Dion knows how special you are. I will call as soon as things settle down around here. Please email me at Seniorsleuth@aol.com.
I was away at a writer's conference in Portland for four days and just got back this evening. It almost sounds like it would be cheaper to go out and buy a brand new computer! Go to FED-EX/Kinkos. They have really sturdy boxes for sale there.
So glad you liked the story. Yeah, splitting the story into two parts was the editor's idea. I didn't have anything to do with that. I handed her the complete story, but when you hand over your manuscripts to an editor, you're at their mercy.
Such colorful message attachments! I'm so computer illiterate. It took me all day to figure out how to paste my picture on "my page." I didn't grow up in a technology-filled world. Television, radio, record players, and telephone was about it. My grandkids think I"m from the stone-age. They can't imagine a world without hand-held computers and cell phones. I still play my old 45's on my phonograph. They think it's a hoot.
I mailed you a copy of the magazine with my short story in it. Hope you got it.
sorry to be so late in responding. I try to give feedback on my internet chat rooms (chat rooms!! Now ain't that a 21st Century word!) about once a week, but I don't always have the time. It's funny, but my twenty-four hour day has been reduced to twelve. Don't know how that happened.
Will mail you a copy of the September issue with the conclusion of my story in it, when it comes out.
