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.

You like paranormal detective? Mine is from New Orleans. And what ever happened to the Dresden Files on TV?
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 page here on crimespace.

LOL! Don't let Nugget hear you say he's adorable. He already has the "I'm cutest cat in the world" attitude. He doesn't need much encouragement. :)

Very nice website. Love the colors and it's very clean in design. I especially loved your count down to word count on your WIP. That is fun. Good job.

And you are a smooth writer. Smoothies are best enjoyed on languid summer days, but only if the fruit is fresh! But I digress...
Thanks for being an eFriend!

Your avitar, alluring as Ishtar, captivates my imagination. I cannot help myself! I must pass a friendship invitation.

I love cross genre suspense stories too, Jess. Hope you're having a splendid Sunday. When are you going to have that website completed?

Remember, I've got my eye on you.

Even if it's only a close approximation, I'm still delighted you accepted! By the way (given the subject matter of the drawing) ... I am one of the very few men ever to have danced onstage with the Bellydance Superstars - a tongue-in-cheek journalistic assignment, I hasten to add, based on the notion that bellydancing is a male dance-form across much of the Middle East (allegedly). Had a great time, actually, what with the close proximity of dancing beauties - and no, I DIDN'T wear the costume!

On the basis that your drawing is a self portrait, I'm very much hoping you'll join my list of friends.

Not that I'm a shallow, looks-ist, sexist male chauvinist pig, or anything ... !

Hey Jess--Just got back from being out of town and without a computer. I feel so out of touch. Thanks for stopping by my page and saying HI. I like a good cross genre story too. Best of luck on your writing and thanks for friending me. :)

Thank you. :-)

Favorite authors...that's a tough one. My book collection is massive. It depends on my mood I suppose, but as long as it has a gripping storyline and memorable characters, I'm along for the ride.
