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.

Glad you enjoyed it! Number 3 is just about done, sadly you'll have to wait until next summer.

Hi Bruce (cool name!),

Thanks for adding me. Writing screenplays is great especially when one gets made, so good luck with your future projects.

All the best, Alison Bruce (oh yes, such a cool name!)

Bruce, Like Caro, I just arrived here but it does seem like a cool place to hangout. I just finished reading Caro's Drag Queen in the Court of Death, by the way - highly recommended. I've been writing for nearly half a century (of course, I started when I was 3) but screenwriting is almost the only thing I haven't tried - maybe one of these days. I keep learning new tricks, pretty good for an old dog, huh?

Hi Bruce,
My daughter lives in Berkeley, so I drive though Pleasanton quite often. I love it up there. Thanks for putting me on your list of favorite authors. I'm in the "many others" group, I'm

Hey Bruce! Thanks for the invite! I'll wave at you next time I'm passing thru Pleasanton on my way to the City! Oh, and BTW, not sure if you heard, but {{{sob}}} Dresden Files has been canceled. :-(

Does my blog count as writing time? Oy.

You are wicked. ;-) No wonder you hide behind a cartoon character. LOL.

Hi, Bruce --

Thanks so much for the nice words about A NAIL THROUGH THE HEART. It means so much to me when someone enjoys something I've written. I spend the better part of a year hammering away at a keyboard trying to entertain the imaginary "ideal reader" sitting across from me, and when someone real weighs in with a positive reaction, it gets me all fired up to continue writing.

Just saw the jacket for THE FOURTH WATCHER, and it's killer. As soon as the people at Morrow say it's okay to do so, I'll post it.

Thanks again.

Hi Bruce, thanks for the invite. I have an unfinished screenplay....I hope to go back to, it's what I do for fun once in a while. So I am also impressed with a rewrite! Screenwriting is hard, it is even more straight-jacketed with structure than genre writing.

Yeah, Bruce, I agree. I think Crimespace is serving a wonderful niche here and am so grateful to Daniel for starting it.

my best . . .

Hi, Bruce -- Thanks for the invitation. I'm with you on Will Thomas -- I love those books. And having a rewrite produced is nothing to be half-heartedly proud of -- I was actually HIRED to write screenplays and not a word ever saw the light of film. The checks cleared, though.
