About Me:
A detective with a New England law enforcement agency who works undercover narcotics, sexual assaults, internet predator cases and other violent crimes against the person cases as part of a street crimes unit. Also a crisis negotiator with my dept's regional tactical response team. An avid reader of mysteries and a big fan of "The Closer" & "The Shield". Horses, dogs, cats, snowmobiles, ATV's and hanging out on the lake in the boat. I am a sports nut (a development that occurred in self defense since my husband is one), and when we are not yelling at Red Sox and Patriot games, I am the head coach of my son's soccer, basketball and baseball teams. To relax, I cook up a storm, clean stalls and mow the lawn.

police interview techniques...

My training in interview and interrogation techniques has value beyond the crime scene. I have a just-turned-six-year-old who, in spite of having two cops as parents, is defintely heading down the road to a career as a defense attorney. I find that handling felons all day is much easier than dealing with the kid (or the 14 six year olds I coach in three sports). "Monkey Boy", as we affectionately refer to him, is a button pusher and wise ass like both of his parents, and thus he sucks whatever… Continue

My first blog

Okay, so I have never done this blogging thing before - I am completely incapable of keeping a regular journal, so how this will work, I have no idea. Stream of thought is probably something I should not do, as my Captain is always reminding me about using my "filter" or "inside voice"...I seem to spout out things that others are thinking and quietly keeping to themselves. No censoring ability. I generally attribute this to tourettes or random neural misfiring... some find it amusing or…

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.

Hi Kristyn: You should hire yourself out as a crime/mystery writer's consultant with all your xperience and background. Impressive. My dogs are two of my best consultants. They don't give me any advice, but they're always there when I need someone to listen to my plot lines and character development ideas. Hope you'll check out my Crimespace page and website to see what I'm up to these days.

Hey! If a author writes a novel in the forest, and nobody reads it, did it make a sound?
I'm newt, slithering from the shallow end of the gene pool, into the open ocean. Sharks are likely to eat me before the salt water kills me, but who wants a quiet life?
