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.
Hola Maryann --
just stopped in to update you. I am offering up a free downloadable on my DEAD ON at www.robertwalkerbooks, a new site. And on Crimespree here I've just posted a new blog entitled "Yes, but is it Publishable?"
Thankyou for your kind welcome. Sorry for the delay in response. I had homework from my writing course, that I needed to get finished by tonight, so it was all work and no play. Actually the homework was quite fun so I shouldn't say that really : ) I was peeking at your list of authors and noticed a few I like as well, Harlan Coban, Lee Child espec I wanted to ask you the title of the Luisa Buehler novel or novels you have read. I have read one of hers and really enjoyed it but can't remember the title.
Happy Scribing to you : )
Sorry for the delay in responding, but I was out of town on a hunting trip for 4 days and just got back this evening. Amazon would be your best bet I think for "Little Blue Whales" or Powell's. That's great that you're writing a Portland based mystery. The book I am currently writing, "The Sparrow's Blade," takes place about fifty percent in the Portland - Salem area, and the rest on the southern Orgeon coast...the original setting of LBW.
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I have just concluded a seemingly endless stint selecting and qualifying for high deductible, exorbitant health insurance. I can now get back to writing and things more important than the lottery over my state of health and odds on the likelihood of my need of repair in the coming year. It'll be good to think about something else after these last several days of endless phone calls and interviews. I mention this because I got your email announcement and read your page and it reminded me that there was life on the other side of the misnomer we refer to as grown up stuff.

Hi Maryann - Lyn LeJeune here. Still so thankful for your help and reading my book. I've so quite I few as my amazon rankings show, but I don't look too often. I'll know for sure at the end of the quater. So I picked up the latest Dexter book and it's good, although a bit predictable. I'm moving on later to something else while I get ready for my book fair in St. Pete. Went to the Friends of the Library Book sale and picked up a huge box of books....many obscura - for thirty bucks>
