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.

The white stuff is pretty, but the novelty wears off pretty quickly. Thanks to global warming we haven't seen too much of it in the last few years-I'll keep my fingers crossed. Chalice is a fun write for me. I hope you'll enjoy the read.
I really enjoy watching Without a Trace too. The stories always seem believable, and I can relate to both the families seeking answers, and the detectives getting to the bottom of events. What works for me on any show I watch, is getting to know the players, seeing a good plot, and watching the story unfold. What doesn't work for me, is shows that are never ending, have very little plot, and leaves you hanging by the end *scratching my head, wondering why I wasted the time it took, to even bother turning the tube on to begin with*.
Oh yes, there are many people that enjoy the same things in books, movies, and television stories. I guess my taste aren't too far from the norm, but then too... I don't list everything either. We've got to keep some uniqueness, or we wouldn't be such mysterious creatures:-)
Kim: I presume you've already heard the audio promo on D. K. Gaston's Crimespace page. Can we use something like that as an opening when someone clicks on my website homepage? The guy I met this summer (on the train) works for PBS and does voice-overs. I might be able to get him to do one for me. Also, any chance we can add links to other mystery/suspense/thriller authors in the form of banners? Would we need a special page? I've had several authors who are willing to exchange links on their websites with me. The banner is a great advertising way to do it, since it's colorful and visuals are always better than words.
You knowthe old joke: Campers - Nature's way of feeding mosquitos. We know some people from Minnisota. Mosquitos are their state bird. (ha!ha!) Lake of ten thousand lakes, and ten million mosquitos. We have them pretty bad down here in the summertime. It rains so much. Because of the extreme heat and the mosquitos, we don't do much outside. Thank goodness the patio and pool are encased in a screen cage, otherwise we couldn't even sit outside. It's still in the nineties down here. We got hit by a tornado on Sunday. We were coming back from the airport and saw it form in the sky. It was a water spout at first, then developed into a tornado. It was scary. We barely made it home. It was raining so hard, we couldn't even see taillights in front of us. The wind was blowing so hard, the trees were almost parellel with the ground. Cars were thrown around like toys; one on top of the other. We have a big ole' truck, and managed to tough it out. Some people's houses had the roof ripped off. A Walmart was torn up, and three hotels at Ft. Myers beach were ripped apart.
Life in Florida - It's a blast.
Thanks for checking out my web site. I know it looks kind of pitiful compared to some of the ones I've seen. But they probably paid quite a few bucks to have it designed. Mine didn't cost me anything. I'm a new author on a budget just trying to promote my books.
