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.
Haven't said hello in ages, how's Alaska and you?
I've completed something, but am now revising and editing and RE-WRITING!
what a hard slog!
anyway just wanted to say hi to you!
You've had an impressive career. Writing for young people is challenging. I recently worked on a reading program for early grades, and it was the hardest job I've ever had.
B-Con 2007 was a blast...next up is LCC in Denver.
Where in MA did you live? I went to school there, and we have family still on the north shore....
So much has happened since I got back from Alaska, I don't know if I'm on foot or horseback. Paying the Piper isn't going to ebook, yet. There will be some more short stories going online soon in the mean time. I'm still in deadline hell and I won't be clear of it until the new year. That's when I'll be able to plan what's going to happen next and where. :-)
As for booksignings, the very nature of e-books doesn't produce a book to sign. I will, however, have my bookmarks made up by then and those will be signed. If I make it to the meeting I'll bring bunches.
As for being brave enough to read it... well... with the book on your computer it can easily be hidden away if you're interrupted! LOL. I know it isn't great literature, but there is room for mind candy too. It is certainly a playful little book *wink* but not for everyone.
Thanks for keeping in touch with me! I want to meet up with the AKSINC again soon. You all are too much fun!
