mall shootings

I was going to post a blog about something terrible I experienced recently, but now it seems a bit unimportant. Some of you may have heard, but a couple of hours ago, there was a terrible shooting at a mall here in Omaha. It always makes you feel terrible when you see this sort of thing happen in some far away city; but when it happens almost literally in your backyard, it suddenly doesn't feel real. As I sit here typing this, I can hear the police helicopter circling. Suddenly it becomes very… Continue

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.

Yeah, that's weird... I love Keith Spence but he got spooked on Myspace, I think a bunch of women fell for him! LOL But hopefully he'll pick himself up and get back to his friends who care about him! K

LoL. Incomplete sentences are what is known by fiction writers as literary license. I do it all the time, particularly for impact. Sometimes only one word. Re Hannibal, I saw both Silence of the Lambs (terrific) and Hannibal (not bad). The thing I liked about Hannibal was the scenes in Florence, Italy, since I have been there a couple of times and recognized locations in the city.

Saw you liked reading Thomas Harris. What did you think of his book on the origins of Hannibal Lecter? Was a strangly written book. Took me a while to get into the flow of it. Almost like someone else had written it, the style was so different that his other books. At any rate, I write mystery and suspense novels.
