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.
I am sorry I took so long to accept your generous offer of friendship. I haven't checked in for a while and as a result I am behind on everything. I've been busy trying to get last minute business done for my new release and correspondence has been placed on the back burner. Bad form I know. Thank you for having me.
Thanks for accepting my friend request! I hope you'll consider reading my A REAL BASKET CASE mystery, which was one of four nominated for the 2007 Best First Novel Agatha Award. It's readily available in libraries.
I saw where folks wanted true crime, well I have a true crime book coming out in Sept called Silent Scream. I also have a degree in Criminal Justice and Bounty Hunted in Georgia. In July I have a fiction book coming out about a serial murderer. So they can ask away.
The really odd thing about the Perry Mason book (not an original, unfortunately) is that I came home to eat lunch, turned on Perry Mason, and the hour show was based on "The Case of the Velvet Claws."
My copy was published in 2002, ImPress Mystery, The Best Mysteries of All Times series. It looks brand new, and I thought it was a dollar well spent.
Me neither, but it was I went in to enter the contest for the offered book. My program is mailwasher, and it is picky, picky, picky. I am just getting used to the new program. My computer guru friend put it in for me (He worked several years for a computer company and is very knowledgeable.) I still have Spybot, sitehound, and, of course, symantec. I have learned all this p.c. stuff late in life, and much of what goes wrong is due to the nut behind the wheel as my late hubby would have said. You know the old saying, "Garbage in, and garbage out." I just keep plugging away and learn something new all the time.
hello Sue, I don't know why your computer thinks my sites can possibly be 'unsafe' as they are all Freewebs sites and there's never been a problem with anyone using them before, and I've never had anyone report such an incident. I hope you mange to get through eventually.
Sorry I didn't notice your comment on my page until now. Happy New Year to you. Yes, there's plenty of time for a lady of 72 to become a published author. All it takes is a bit of drive, ambition, perseverance and one hell of a manuscript.
Glad you found a copy of APG. Let me know how you do with a "short and sweet" book. I tend to write to the point, arising from my news reporter days.
Coincidentally, speaking of Stand By Me, I just finished reading The Body, the Stephen King novella on which the movie is based. It was masterful.
Is it just me (I?), but are there more mass murder/suicides going on today? In the last couple of days both locally and nationally swat teams have killed many mentally ill people. Am I paranoid? Recently reading a Jay Leno comment, I see that he puts blame on the media for some of our ills. In this world of fast technology it seems to me that our world is lopsided philosophically speaking. That said, the world situation gives crime writers just that much more to write about.
I am babbling, but I am curious as to what mystery readers/authors think. I confess to watching "Charley Brown's Valentine" on TV last night to get away from the hurly burly of the political and economic world. However, that did not keep me from watching "Stand by Me" a 3 star classic with River Phoenix.
After all this babble, I fear that I am in the wrong site.
Rick, I did get A PERFECT GRAVE at the library yesterday and will start it very soon. I am so happy that it is not a long novel. I like 'em short and sweet.
Ah, good ol' Portland, Oregon. I was educated there through the sixth grade, the first five years in the northeast section of town--then it was out into the rural environs of Aloha, Oregon, until my college days. Times have changed, but my values are pretty much what they were when I was a teen.
