Fear in Mystery Novels

Today I have a guest post on the Dark Phantom website. I wrote a little post (an article, really) titled “Writing a Murder Mystery and Using Fear.”

I suppose with my background of writing horror stories, using fear in mystery novels comes naturally! But, read my post to see what I have to say. There've been a few comments already on the posting.

And as a last thought on using fear… Continue

Mystery Author Doug Hewitt Interviews Jack Thigpen

I enjoyed my virtual tour stops today, and it just keeps getting better. One of the promotional ideas I had was to have an

interview with my main character in The Dead Guy, Jack Thigpen. Let's face it; I didn't really give Jack a fair shake, giving him

a fatal, untreatable disease in Chapter 1.

And so what would Jack have to say to me?

Read my interview with Jack Thigpen, and see what he has to say to mystery author Doug Hewitt.

It's here… 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.
