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.
Hello Lori, my 2 kitties are 18 months so I understand energetic. Detective Tucker (male, black) brought in an almost dead bird this morning. How do you discourage a cat from doing basic cat things? Sigh. Maybe I'll explore that in my next novel.
How long a break do you have from school?

Hello Lori, love your cat. International Affairs keeps you abreast of the latest events around the world -- great fodder for plots. In addition to novels, I've written a gift book about cats. My last cat lived over twenty years. Enjoy your snatches of time for writing!
If you like suspense, try anything by Patricia Carlon, but particularly "An Unquiet Night" & "Hush, It's a Game". Her skill in building tension is unequaled! She is the reason I selected the mystery genre when I wrote my first novel. Sadly, her work can be hard to find , but I believe most of her novels have been released by Soho Press.
I also like William Kent Krueger & JA Konrath.
