Men, Women and Outlines

When I first started writing Body Trace, the first book in the Madison Cross series, I was somewhat intimidated at the idea of writing from the point of view of a female protagonist. I had written parts of novels from the points of view of female…

Today's the day! Freezer Burn is in stores now!

Freezer Burn, the third book in my Philadelphia-based series of forensic crime thrillers, is on sale now. Freezer Burn follows the career of rookie forensic technican Madison Cross, now on the job for nine months and trading in one set of problems for another as she takes on her toughest case yet.

Or as it says on the cover:

The Crime Scene Unit knows that even the most cold-blooded killers leave clues.

A bag full of body parts. A man thrown from a car. A…

Finding a Literary Agent

We all know that in order to get published these days, agents are pretty necessary. Occasionally, you hear of people getting published without them, but you hear of people winning the lottery, too.

While a publisher probably won't…

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.

Hey Jon,
A l-o-o-ong time ago you told me to get myself up on this site. Well, here I am. Nice to see you're at three and counting with the Madison Cross series.

Hey, Joe Dublin, I'd like to get one of your novels from my library. Which one are you most proud of?

thanks for the invite. I was interested in your blogging comment. I gave the blog thing a go but found I was getting too hung up about what I was going to write - about what I was writing. It started to encroach on my writing day... then I considered including a character in my novel who was blogging obsessively and I considered drawing from my own blogging attempts... then I noticed my thoughts were starting to form like blog entries. It got too scary so I stopped.

Good luck with the blogging but don't feel bad if you don't bother in the end. Alison x

You're most welcome. I admit I've not been using this site as I should. I need to rectify that!

Jon: Since I seem to be getting a noir-ish reputation as writer Noircon will definitely be on my must-attend list once I finish grad school - in forensics.
