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 had a Triumph years ago...the kind where the lights pop up. Well they kept popping up as thought the car has a will of its own. I keep trying to fit it into one of my mystery stories.
My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…..it’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my Crimespace page.
Hi Debbie! I am the proud owner of a vintage 1973 TR6! My very first car ever was a TR6. For my (ahem, major milstone birthday), my dad tracked it down and tried to restore it, but it was too far gone. So he presented me with a beautiful TR6 (midnight blue) that looked as if it had just rolled off the showroom floor. What a great b-day! Triumphs rule! My protagonist drives a vintage TR6, natch.
I totally agree with you about strong female leads. All my heroines are strong minded. The lead in Widow's Walk and Lady Lightkeeper is a strong minded woman in the 1840's and 1850's Cape Ann :) She stirs things up and has made a real impression on readers and reviewers. She's been a lot of fun to get to know :)
Damn!! I never realized we had this in common, Deb, but my big brother used to live in Navato before he retired from the Air Force. Small world. Glad you could make it. I love that pic of you. Cool shades. And Newt beat me here to spread the Crimespace love. How cool is he?!!
