Nice to meet you. I haven't seen the latest Dexter season, I wait for Netflix and gorge on it over the course of 3 weeks.

Thanks, Christopher. I am into procedurals and will check out Santana. Best regards, Robin

Hi Christopher,

You should be able to add the extra video promo code directly after the previous one. Just make sure that each of them begin with a 'less than' and end with a 'greater than' sign.

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.

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for the invite. Look forward to White Tomb. Have always been a John Sanford fan.

You're welcome. CrimeSpace is an excellent website that generates good discussions and feedback. I've been very busy promoting my police procedural White Tombs (just added an event post for New Mexico) and working on the next book in the series. Never seems to be enough time in the day.

I'll probably ask you some things about writing fiction as I continue to develop that area of my writing. If you don't mind of course!

I'd be happy to share some of the investigative techniques I know.

Hi, thanks for accepting my request. I prefer reading police procedurals to most other kinds of crime fiction.

My work involves investigating both crimes and the persons who commit them. I write reports and recommend federal sentences.

I'm excited that you're planning to read The Sex Club. Considering your last two blog posts here, I think/hope you'll find it interesting.

It's not just the White House, we have the same problem in Canada, it's all over Europe, too. What I wonder about is the lack of outrage from the people. Or maybe what I mean is, I wonder about the support our leaders get...

I can see it much better...guess it's age and I love black and red...perhaps a lighter red would have been better for my eyes to read but the white sticks out good.....will keep you updated on how the trailer goes.....and if it does help any

no, our story wasn't done on 60 minutes but I was on some of the talk shows like geraldo, maury, sally, rolonda and a few others....although it never did any good. We never did get a good attorney for him. The BBC did a documentary on my life but it was like fifteen minutes and I don't think it was played here but over seas in england....anyway, the trailer cost me 150.00 and his name is Curtis Baker, Chief Editor
Ghostwriter Extraordin aire, LLC If you check them out, tell them I sent you.....I'm trying to get a discount on my next one if I find they do help with sales to the book. They put it on places like facebook, myspace and others.. His email address is My email is

What finally hit me about serial killer stories is that, underneath the authors' creative attempts to be different, the stories and characters are all the same. They kill because they like to. They're either caught, or not. There isn't much room for twists or surprises. I was skeptical about Dexter for these reasons, but he is different.

Hi Christopher
Congratulations on your first release. Very exciting.
I just discovered Dexter, and I'm hooked. And I no longer read serial killer stories. It's partly the actor, isn't it?
