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.
Sorry, Mark, to take so long to get back to your response on my page. I'm still trying to get the hang of how this site works.
Very sorry to hear you had broken your ankle: That really sucks. I attended the San Diego ComiCon several years ago to check it out: was one of the most fun vacations I've had. However, I don't have your long experience so you may not find it as exciting. I then had a booth three years ago in Artists Alley to promote my comic novel. Sold some, but we didn't get much traffic in that area. Made a new friend, though. Sorry to hear your last experience was negative. Do you go to SciFi conventions then to promote your work? I just purchased The Everything Guide to Writing Graphic Novels.
I found my way here through your comment on the forum about interest in Graphic Novels. I am interested. I am a published novelist and shorts (Including EQMM). I currently have an SF screenplay which I am currently writing as a novel, but would also like to make it into a graphic novel. It's something I see as being a mix of "Sin City " and Neil Gaimon's "Sandman". I am looking for an artist who would be willing to do a few sample panels until we can get a commitment for publication, or an editor who would like to consider the project. Can you point me in any direction?
So, Mark, what comics convention is your favorite, please? I've been to the San Diego ComiCon (once as fan, once as exhibitor in Artist's Alley) and a few local in the Seattle/Puget Sound area. Glad there's another cartoonist in the group. Take care. Dawn
I have good friends up in Ri. and founded/taught the first year of the Cumberland Company for Performing arts. In spenser I got to call Hawk a clown before he beat the snot out of me:). I've enjoyed alot of your work over the years--nice to 'meet ' you..
