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.

Val Mcdermid is well worth a read and she's also milling around on this site....somewhere!
I'm so jealous you met Jeffrey Deaver - his Lincoln Rhyme series is inspired.
I am working on the debut novel myself (yawn), having now spent years and years reading and being told that i can write, I've decided the time has come to give it a go!
Would love to hear more about your meet with Jeffrey Deaver, sounds like you lead a really interesting life.

(Great choice of name by the way)

If I'm not lurking around on here, you can find me over at, where you are welcome to join us!

All the best for 2008 Nikki, x

Hi Nikki: My third novel, Blue Heron Marsh, the first of a new series set in the Outer Banks and Albemarle Sound region of northeast North Carolina was just released. My protag lives in a stilt home in the marshes just off the causeway between Nags Head and Manteo. Would love to compare notes. Will get a copy of your book and read it as soon as I have a chance.

Best, Douglas Quinn

Hi Nikki...thanks for the invite! Glad to make your acquaintance.

I haven't been to Cape Ann so I can only imagine how lovely it is. My wife and I will be driving up to Maine to visit my publisher, which is based in Waterville. They throw a party once a year for the author's they've published. Then I drive down to Barnstable to spend a few relaxing days. Living in Minnesota, I don't often get to see the ocean. Although we do have lots of lakes and pine forests up north and---oh yeah, that big chunk of water, Lake Superior. Not quite the same.

Hi Nikki,
I'm on my way to Cape Cod next week to visit a friend. Lovely area. I must say I'm very curious about your Book Promo 101. Can always use help in that area.

Hi Nikki,

Thanks for the invite. Your story about a skeleton that was found under the Cape Hatteras lighthouse sounds intriguing. Good luck in all you do.

Hi Nikki-I wish I had awesome promo ideas for you to include in your book. The whole selling part of writing I find difficult an doften humiliating. Who of us hasn't sat in a bookstore with the only one stopping by regaling us with his or her story ideas? Good luck with it. Thanks fo rinvting me to be you friend. Ciao

Thanks for the invite. I'm very interested in your series set in Cape Ann, Massachusetts. My most recent novel, Little Gods, is set in the Berkshires.

Hi Nikki, thank you for that. I have always loved anything to do with the sea: beaches, waterfront, boats, docks, marinas, lighthouses. We spent our summers at Montauk on L.I. When I was a little girl several centuries ago! I will certainly look out for your books! all the best!

Thanks for the add, Nikki. I've been watching Law & Order since the first season. As a New York resident I love anything filmed in my "backyard." That's what got me interested in the series; the "ka-thunks" and the stories are what have kept me hooked.

I especially love the Briscoe and Logan years...

I very much share your feelings. A couple of years back - bear in mind that I'm a distinctly mediocre swimmer - I got caught in a current on a local beach and gave myself a real fright before I got back within my depth again. So I used that as a background for a suspicious death in a detective story that - alas - got thumbs down from my UK agent. Never mind, not finished yet - I've part-translated it into French, with a view to finding a publisher here in France!

Thank you for the invite. I appreciate it. I'm on vacation and moving a little slow, but hoefully once I get back, I'll be able to keep things more up to date.

Hi Nikki - Thanks for the welcome, I really appreciate it. As soon as I find out what I'm actually doing on Crime Space, I'll drop back to say hi. Cheers, Dec

Nikki - Please let me know when your new "promotions" book is available. I'm always in the market for that sort of thing.

You're lucky to have a series set in the Carolinas, with some of the best real "place names" in America: Kill Devil Hills, Hiddenight (?), Galax, etc.
