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 wish I'd known about your press release. I don't take the paper--just buy it on Sunday. I'll check with a writer friend here to see if she saw anything and if she did, I'll try to get a copy for you. They should have used it since you're a "local" girl. :)
One week from today, and I leave for the ACFW conference. In the meantime, I have to get my house ready, my family's needs organized so when I'm gone, everything will run smoothly, and I'm on a deadline as well. But you know what, it's okay. Because I'm excited about everything. Can't wait! :D
So, how're YOU doing? Are you ready for conference????
Well, a writer from the deep south....I love it. I'm from new Orleans I don't usually comment on members pictures, but you look like Anne Rice when she was young.
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.
I'm certain I should know about the ACFW conference, but I'm probably getting senile. What/where is it? Why are you fighting the prep? (Not that I love the effort of planning/paying for a conference trip.) Be sure to keep any and all paperwork. IRS is investigating my participation in cons in 2005. Ouch!
Nope, no Margie Lawson. Boise is quite a treat and the con a good group of people.Robert Crais was guest of honor and on my panel. Seems like a nice guy. Do you know anything about Murder in the Midlands? I've heard good things. Am thinking of going next year.
Yes, I love Nancy Drew. GMA did a story on how ND influenced different types of women earlier this week. It is amazing how important she has been since her inception.
I don't remember Trixie Belden from my childhood. My parents were buying and Dad had loved Hardy Boys and Bobbsey Twins. ND was a natural choice also. I found Dana Girls at the library.
Nice to meet you. I lived in Fayetteville Ark for a short time a million years ago. Arkansas is a beautiful state. Pretty much the opposite of New Mexico where we've had a snowy winter and a soggy spring and I'm beginning to think the early has left its orbit. But NM is stunningly beautiful in its own way. Sorry I'm slow to respond. I've been out of town on a panel at Murder in the Grove in Boise and computer wi-fi has been iffy. Cheers and best wishes!
Hi, Robin. Over here in the UK, I'm published by Constable & Robinson. In the US, it's Carroll & Graf.
And as my internet connection seems to be working again, I'll go and check out your website before it falls over again. :o)
