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.

Hello Michelle

I'm new here. A young lady by the name of Krystal Waters invited me to crimespace. I write poetry, mostly freestyle and what ever comes to mind at the moment of where and what ever I'm doing. I love to write. I don't know what I would if they too the pen and note book away from all of us.

Anyway, making my rounds here and there. Stop by when you can Michelle Martin and all your friends.

Until now, I have yet to find another person who claims Confederacy of Dunces as a favorite. It brings a tear of happiness to my eye.

Tonight eastern Nebraska is supposed to get slapped with windchills of negative 20 to 30 degrees F. Does that qualify as Alaska weather? Wished I could've attended Bcon in Alaska this year.

My selfishness Michelle...
If I send you a copy and you like it. Then I set a book signing in Anchorage and I get to see Alaska!
And yeah, you'll hate Dr. Conger, trust me (I'm a lawyer ;>)

Hey Michelle...My first work Justice is Coming will be out next month. I'd love to hear what you think about it. Seeing you're a therapist, thought you'd find it intriqing. My bad guy is pyschatrist that manipulates everyone around him. Let me know if you'd like a copy sent to you. John. I'd love to have a reason to come to Alaska!

Michelle, it amazes me that you could look so happy and live where it's so cold - by Key West standards - even in the summer! I guess that's why I live in the tropics. I understand it is beautiful in Alaska, but I would probably be shivering so much my vision would blurrrrr. Keep warm thoughts.

Are you in Anchorage as in ALASKA???? I've traveled there and really loved the area. In fact, I met Sue Henry (she's a former prez of SinC, as I'm sure you know) in Skagway at one of her booksignings.

Good luck with your books.

Hi Michelle -- thanks for your comment on my page.

Yes, I read about the Guppies when I was reviewing the Sisters in Crime website. Sounds like an interesting group. I've been thinking of joining some new writers' organizations that relate to my current project, so we may run into each other there.

Good luck with your own books!

Did you get to Boucheron this year in Alaska? What are you writing?
There's lots of good crime writers in Alaska or novels that take place in Alaska. Dana Stabenow is here on Crimespace....
My book takes place on the other side of USA - 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.

First contact.
Have you seen the film Insomnia? If so, as an Alaskan, how Alaskan does the film seem to you?

Hi Michelle,

Nice site....Is writing therapy or do you need therapy to write...

Six chapter presidents of Sisters in Crime loved my latest mystery novel, Little Gods, with blurbs that ranged from 'must read' through 'page turner' to "literature.' At just over 200 pages it's a breeze.

Entry deadline is july 26.

What an interesting setup. A clinical therapist writing mysteries in Anchorage, a land of darkness and light, where some transplants from the mid-latitudes suddenly discover acute seasonal affective disorder. It's not so cute when murders spill from the analyst's couch to the downtown financial district...
But I digress.

Five books a week ... is that a way of saying that not a lot else happens up there in Anchorage?

'You know you're in the largest state in the union ...' etc

Ah...all day in the summer, as Bradbury didn't quite write. Well, I figured it wasn't the cabbages (Alaska...perfect for cole slaw and kim chee.) There are several Michelle Martin items in print or publshed over the last several years...do you publish novels? Short fiction? (Barely so, myself, the latter.)
At 11:44am on June 26, 2007, Todd Mason said…
As a native of Fairbanks, I'll ask how you landed in Anchorage?
At 8:29am on June 21, 2007, Steven Torres said…
So you read more books in a week than I read in a month... Cool. I'm sure you'll like it here. Welcome.
