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.
Sandy, always good seeing you and Jerry. Think Borders in Vero Beach may have me in to sign, a friend has a radio show there, so I get some free PR for the store. Maybe on the way up, or back, depending on the signing time, we can meet for a meal in your home turf? Windy is all, but the next one is scary the way it's threating to turn! Hope to see you again, soon.
Well, I am nearly to Chapter 18 in UNCOMMON GROUNDS and am loving it. As I sit here on my p.c. my self-cleaning oven has only about half an hour to finish.
The weather is picture perfect for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Your autographed books arrived a couple of days ago, and I started UG at the dentist's office. The books were worth the wait, and I am nowan admirer of Maggy. As you know, my first husband was a dentist, now retired, who left me for his hygienist whose husband committed suicide. Tomorrow would have been Jolly's and my 35th wedding anniversary, so I am feeling a bit blue. However, I can pop on a demo tape from his professional music days. How many widows can do that? ;-)
You're absolutely right, Cheryl. I have a feeling I won't get away with...well, BEANS. (Have you ever seen a business with more puns in it than the coffee business??!!) I do like the Grounds titles, but I can't resist trying to push it. GROUNDS FOR MURDER was initially titled THE MILKMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE. Guess DIAL AUTOGRIND FOR MURDER is out of the question. Sigh.
We like a lot of the same books, so I'm sure your coffee mysteries will suit my tastes. So you're brewing up another one, eh? BEAN THERE, DONE THAT? What happened to GROUNDS? Your editor may find that grounds for revision **grin** Publishers seem to like the same old grind (sorry! couldn't resist!).
Hey! If a author writes a novel in the forest, and nobody reads it, did it make a sound?
I'm newt, slithering from the shallow end of the gene pool, into the open ocean. Sharks are likely to eat me before the salt water kills me, but who wants a quiet life?
Sandy- don't feel so bad about the procrastination. After all, you could have a deadline at the end of this month on, say, a ghost-writing project for which you have no enthusiasm (as opposed to working on your own fiction), instead. Uh.... not that I know about that sort of thing first-hand, of course...
