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 really don't know what happened to Keith Spence. I used to talk to him on occasion. First, on MySpace, then, on here. I haven't been on here in a while, so I haven't talked to him lately. Hopefully, maybe, he's working on his new book and doesn't have much free time.
I wish you the greatest of luck and success in your attempts to see your book turned into a film. I must say I got lucky as the film company came to me rather than the other way round, other wise none of this would have happened for me.
Thanks for your comment. I didn't win, but 'The Nemesis Cell' came 6th out of 75 nominations in the mystery novel category and 'Murder, Mayhem and Mexico' was placed 9th out of 128 in the anthologies category, so to have two books both voted into the top ten in their respective sections was a remarkable achievement and i'm very happy with that. I also get to display a P & E Top Ten Finalist logo on my work, which may help future sales etc. In fact, a few days after the polls closed my agent secured a print contract for 'The Nemesis Cell' which had previously only been available in e-book format. The publisher concerned also wanted more of my work so my agent managed to negotiate contracts for two more of my novels, so I think the poll did me some good in a real sense.
I hope everything is going well for you too, and I'll look forward to hearing from you again,
Oh, lord, I wouldn't expect you (or anyone) to drive five hours to hear me speak! I'm not even talking about mysteries. The group, Willamette Writers, is a generic writing group. They invited me to speak on the use of obscenities in fiction, mainly because I sold an article to Writer's Digest on the topic. (Dec. 2007 issue, "Proceed with Caution") But I assure you, you could get all the info in my talk from the WD article if it interested you, and save a bundle on gas money! Nice to connect with another Oregon writer, though. Keep me posted on your progress.
Good to see another Oregonian! Do you belong to the Portland Sisters in Crime chapter? Willamette Writers?
I enjoyed participating in SIC when I lived in San Diego, but Ashland has no local chapter. I'm speaking at the local WW in March. Best wishes with your books!
Hope you're well. I'm pleased to say Reaper is now available in the States on amazon.com at $16.99. In advanced search type Dunne for author and Reaper for title. Hope you take a look and spread the word.
Nice new pic. Glad to hear that all's going well with you. I'm still in Anchorage in the waning moments of Bouchercon. Been haning out a bit with one of your fellow Portland authors - Bill Cameron.
Hi Kristine, yep, getting excited, although I'm leaving for Alaska on Saturday to spend 10 days running in terror from bears and moose before Bouchercon, then returning to L.A. to begin the big book tour. This will be my third book tour and I still enjoy them. Nothing wrong with driving around the country chatting with people at bookstores. Although all that sitting in the car and eating roadside food doesn't do much for my health or waistline.
