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.

Hello Joan

I'm new here. A young lady by the name of Krystal Waters invited me to crimespace. I write poetry, mostly freestyle and what ever comes to mind at the moment of where and what ever I'm doing. I love to write. I don't know what I would if they too the pen and note book away from all of us.

Anyway, making my rounds here and there. Stop by when you can Joan Conwell and all your friends.

Hi Joan
Interesting collections of favorite authors. You don't often see Kafka and Gerritsen in the same list.
Good luck with your writing.

Hi Joan, thanks for accepting my invite! I am interested in seeing how your thriller is (assuming it is) by any one, some, or all of the authors you've listed as ones that you like.

Thanks, hope your book works out for you. You seem to be over the worst bumps in the road. - As it happens, your description of life in crimey-norway is not so far off. If you had thrown in some berserk vikings and a snowed down santa claus, you'd really hit the mark:-)

Sure, grateful for the answer. I liked your list of reading pleasure. Please get back to me with news of that thriller of yours.

Hi, Joan, and thanks for the nice words about the reincarnation blog. I have to admit that I laughed out loud when I was writing it, but it's nice to know someone else was interested, too. By the way, this blog also appears on my own website, and I've had two letters of protest from people who (a) think China can't do anything wrong, ever, and (b) have no sense of humor whatsoever. Maybe I'll put up a couple of those notes and my replies in the next few days.

Hi, Joan -- Boy, are you on the nose in your blog. We all have to write what we want to write, and do it the best we can, and that's all we can do.

There may be writers who can sustain the interest and energy necessary to do 100,000 words on an idea that doesn't really mean much to them, but I'm not one of them. And I'm not sure I'd like to be.
