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.

Hi Jennie, Is it too late to reply back to your invitation to be your friend from December of 2007? I'd love to ! How do we do this? I haven't been very good about keeping up here, but will in the future.

Jennie, I posted the blog on ITW also. Been too busy, but now I am home for a while, writing and reading, so you might get sick of hearing from me. Thanks for keeping up and the reply.

Hi Jennie
I keep seeing your face and reading your name. I thought it was time to get to know you.

That's part of the fun of the book festivals and mystery conferences: Getting to put a real face and voice to the cyber version.

Hi, Jennie!
Wanted to let you know that I met your friend Diana at the Festival of Mystery and told her you said "hello." It was so busy that I didn't get a chance to talk to her in depth, but I did get to introduce myself.

Hey, Jennie! I've just moved into the CrimeSpace neighborhood and am glad to see a few familiar faces!

I remember the lists getting pretty quiet even before the Amelia series finished up - guess we can just do the same discussions so many times before they get old. Sethos is doing okay - about five or six posts a week - but we are almost more a general book list now. We talk about what we are currently reading and things like that. I joined 4MA four years ago and that is a busy enough list that I don't really have a lot of time left for other lists - like you said, a lot of us have just found life is busy in a different way. This place is a bit easier - it can be as demanding overall as you want which is nice.

I love Tasha's books! Was on all the lists you said (moderated the new book list when it first formed but moderating is a bit of a challenge so passed it to John and then not sure who has it now). I should join some of them again - left about three years ago when things here were a bit overwhelming. So fun to find someone here from the lists. Am still in touch with a few - do you remember Tricia? She was one of the first on the lists (we joined back when it was e-groups or onelist or something like that - Jen Chance had formed the first list after a discussion set up from the website for MPM). Michelle and Cae were on back then too and several others who I have lost track of (these named are the ones I keep in touch with). And of course Ann Sharp who is great friends with Jane and has been up here to visit.

You were on the MPM lists from long ago? I started out there and that is where I met Jane Burfield (and since she and I live close it immediately led to real life meeting). So cool to find other MPM fans on here. Have you heard of the new book this summer/fall? Do you remember which one of the lists you were one and who else was there? I moderate Sethos still.

Hi Jennie,
Just read your post on the Forum. I'm working on a Romance Suspense story set in the Southeast, but unpublished at this time.
Are you looking for published Authors for your blog?

Hi: Nice to meet you - that's one of the best thing about writing, meeting other writers, readers, and sharing the joy of sharing ideas, experiences and just enjoying 'not being alone' if there's not a writing group near you.

Love and best wishes,
Just Google me and click on any info you want.

Did you have all three books done before you sold the first one?

Visst kan vi være venner. Det var da svært så hyggelig å møte ei Grefsen-jente her inne. Sjelden kost. Håper skrivingen din går bra. Kanskje vi kan snakkes nærmere om den ved en senere anledning. Uansett, lykke til!

Jennie, nice to meet you here on Crimespace. With all the new authors I'm meeting, my TBR pile just keeps getting taller and taller. I will have to make a note to look for your first book when it comes out.

All best,

Hi Jennie,
Congratulations on the 3-book contract and Happy New Year! Fatal Fixer Upper is a great title. Are all three completed or are you working on Nos. 2 and 3? Did you set out to write a series or did it just somehow happen? I thought I was writing a stand-alone, and I'm struggling now to figure out what to do for book 3. I hope I haven't burnt too many bridges, Is your series set in Nashville? I've been to Memphis, but never to Nashville. Best of luck.
