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'm new here. A young lady by the name of Krystal Waters invited me to crimespace. I write poetry, mostly freestyle and what ever comes to mind at the moment of where and what ever I'm doing. I love to write. I don't know what I would if they too the pen and note book away from all of us.
Anyway, making my rounds here and there. Stop by when you can Joan Conwell and all your friends.
Thanks, hope your book works out for you. You seem to be over the worst bumps in the road. - As it happens, your description of life in crimey-norway is not so far off. If you had thrown in some berserk vikings and a snowed down santa claus, you'd really hit the mark:-)
Hi, Joan, and thanks for the nice words about the reincarnation blog. I have to admit that I laughed out loud when I was writing it, but it's nice to know someone else was interested, too. By the way, this blog also appears on my own website, and I've had two letters of protest from people who (a) think China can't do anything wrong, ever, and (b) have no sense of humor whatsoever. Maybe I'll put up a couple of those notes and my replies in the next few days.
Hmmm, even the message I tried to send you through Crimespace - the private one - got bounced back to me. So, here it is on your comments page. (Everyone else, please ignore this.)
I just heard from a friend of mine who is an actress in NYC. She's Czech, but has a Russian friend who she thinks might be of some use. Here's the contact information:
Tell her that you got her name and email from Dana Krizova. The woman is named Olga Kosheleva and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately I have no idea what she does or how useful she might be or not. All I know is that Dana said: "She is really nice girl and I am sure she could help." I've still got one email out in search of a journalist for you.
Keep writing, is all I can say. It is my joy and I turned it to go purpose. My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…..it’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my page here on crimespace.
Hi Joan, no, thank you. I hope you manage your trip to Russia, it's a place I've long wanted to go. I was going to go to Vladivostok for research for my first thriller - The Living Room of the Dead - but then life in the form of my mother getting cancer and me having to help take care of her reared its ugly head and I couldn't. It ended up being a huge, from afar, research job and I think it worked out pretty good, but I'd have much rather gone. Unfortunately I don't know anyone there at the moment.
