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.

Small world? You have no idea--I lived in EM for 13 years. My house was on Dieman (Pronounced Demon) Lane, right off Prospect.

Hi Clea -- was nice to find your note when I meandered back onto Crimespace! It's been awhile since I've enjoyed Haymarket and the North End or going to CITI. I actually grew up in Maine and family still lives there... and yes, definitely a long way from Alaska. I'm trying not to hang out here as much, so to get more work done on the book. Did write a story for the HOW'D THEY DO THAT anthology today in about an hour and sent it on out. That mean kitty song is a classic! Our cats are snuggled up together on my bed at the moment, snoozing to the world. We had spitting snow on Friday and overcast, feels very winterish. Stocked up on the winter gloves and my husband did his usual thing in complaining whatever I picked out doesn't fit and taking them all back to exchange them. It's a good way to get him shopping. He won't go otherwise (grin). Sometimes I purposely buy stuff I know he'll hate, so to get him there picking out his own stuff. It works! Well, better get back to the grind (or better, escape)... thanks for responding and won't keep you longer so that book gets going also.

Thank you, Karen! I owe the latest entry - the "mean kitty song" to the folks at First Offenders (I link to them above). But I couldn't resist re-posting above. - Clea
