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.
Hey sweet friend! Just wanted to wish you a blessed Labor Day weekend. I'll be busy editing on the novel I'm co-authoring. Gosh...we had SO much to learn - and still do. I noticed your comment about the Grammar Cop. I'll definitely check that out!
The M&M conference was a lot of fun. I left a blog on my page, but I'm new at this blogging thing...lol.
I checked out the page for First Coast Writers. I lived in Jax with the USN for about nine years.
Where is Drake Springs, Florida? I live in the Southwest part of Florida, near Naples. I'm glad to find another RV lover. Ww have a fifth-wheel, and absolutely love to go camping. We did like to go boating, also, but Hurricane Charlie demolished our boat, and the insurance company didn't give us enough money to replace it.
So you write romantic suspense? How often does your publisher require you to submit a new novel?
I like Sue Grafton, too. I'm reading: Q is for Quarry.
Some of you have questioned me about the whereabouts of Drake Springs, Florida. It's an imaginary town in an imaginary county (Foster) where I'm setting a series of books, starting with RECLAIM MY LIFE.
Hi Cheryl, nice to make your acquaintance! Thank you for making me feel better about myself! Once I've sorted my situation out, and am settled in my new home, I should be able to concentrate on re-working my two main novels, (in other words, update and hopefully improve them to today's standards). Although I think my niche is with my comedy plays, especially with the Sherlock Holmes ones!
Looking forward to chatting with you soon and often. Take care.
I notice you have wolves in two of the titles on your music title list. Should I read anything into that? is it all that hair or just the wolfish attitude you like? Did you read the excerpt from Blue Heron Marsh on my Page? Maybe you will add my name to the authors you like. Glad to have you on my Crimespace Friends list.
Thank you Cheryl, I am looking forward to seeing the book in print. The book business is really interesting! Navigating around, finding the buzz words and meeting people, it's all a great experiece. I am glad to be a part of it all. Without books, what would the world come to? lol
Good to hear from you as a would-be friend. Welcome aboard. Your productivity is enviable, especially to one who is still trying to get his first book published and has nearly finished his second. it seems there are so many more opportunities (and agents and publishers) in the US than here in Australia. Maybe I should try over there. Keep in touch and happy anniversary.
Thanks. Yep, I suppose any romance that manages to find its way into my books, is sort of perverse - at best. So, perhaps your husband will like them. Then again, I do worry about losing some of my fans from the first book - the second one has a lot less sex and violence.
Ellroy isn't using the same title. He is writing a novel about Alan Pinkerton, I am just using the agency as a side-bar in my novel. But, as I was researching the Pinkerton Agency, I read that Ellroy was doing much the same.
Nevada Barr was greener than, then I am know. So, I'm very proud of her.
