I like. Sketching; in pencil and in words, the people around me. Listening; to melancholy words and music, and singing them in a drunken stupor. Reading; trashy novels, where truths lie. Teaching; my students, who give me far more than I give them. Loving; my children, who keep me grounded and my friends who keep me in single malt beverages.
..Bloodsucking Fiends, You Suck and The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore. The Land of Laughs and Voice of our Shadow by Jonathan Carroll. Fever Pitch, High Fidelity and About a Boy by Nick Hornby. My literary idols are Harlan Ellison and Dashiel Hammett. I love classic sci-fi, comparative mythology, and books about soccer.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
..The Godfather 2, Chinatown, Taxi Driver, La Femme Nikita, Amarcord, Throne of Blood, Game of Death, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, The Seventh Seal, The Killer, even sappy chick flicks like Sliding Doors and the Lake House, plus pretty much every movie made out of a Nick Hornby novel. I'm not a big fan of Quentin Tarantino, or comic-book movies.

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.
