New Book Cover!

I don't have a release date yet but wanted to show off my new book cover. The Wild Rose Press artist did a great job at capturing a scene in the book. Read an excerpt here.

Excerpt for Wicked Desire

Maggie ran to the door, her heart in her throat, her fingers fumbling with the security lock. The memory of his last attack flashed through her mind. Something warned her she was going to
end up with more than a black eye and cut lip.

She let out a bloodcurdling scream when David caught up to her, before she had the chance to undo the chain. He grabbed her by the hair, and jerked her viciously away from the door and into his arms.

“Where’s your gun, baby?” he grated roughly against her ear, his teeth giving her lobe a painful nip. Maggie cried out in pain, which seemed to fuel his desire to hurt her. “The one you threatened
me with, huh?” He wrapped both arms around her body, pinning her arms to her sides so she couldn’t fight him, and began dragging her backwards with him toward the bedroom. “Feel my gun?” he taunted crudely.

Maggie felt sick inside, the bile rising in her throat threatened to choke her. She prayed that it did. At least unconsciousness she wouldn’t have to endure what he had in store for her.

“David, please! I’m begging you not to do this!” She strained against him with all her might, bringing her heel down on his foot, but he only laughed at her efforts. “You’ll go back to prison!” she warned.

He released a sound of indifference. “I’m going to screw you, Maggie. It’s all I thought about while I was in that hellhole. I was a good boy just so I could get out early.”

Maggie’s arms were useless as David kept a firm grip around her. When he lifted her struggling body until her feet were dangling off the ground she threw her head back with enough force to
break his nose. Her actions had the desired results she was hoping for.

He released her, his scream deafening in her ear. She spun around in time to see him grab for his nose. Shock held Maggie motionless. In all their years together she was the one who came away from their battles with bruises and bloody lips. Not once had she ever been able to hurt him.

Now there he stood, glaring at her with hatred, while blood poured through his fingers. “You bitch! I’ll kill you!” His eyes were wild when he pulled
his hand back to look at the blood covering it. He drew his lips back in a grimace.

She stared at the crimson tide streaming down his face, too dazed to do anything else. Until his words finally sank in and the meaning behind them.

Maggie had no doubt David would do exactly
what he threatened. She turned to run, not having anywhere to run to.

She didn’t get far...

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.

Hey Debbie,
thanks for the comment and calling by my site.
I still have that typewriter, safe and stored away in my attic.
I keep it as it reminds me of my genesis as a writer :)
My daughters keep arguing over who will inherit it - LOL.
Have a great day,

Hi Debbie,
My books feature an amateur sleuth who is a gift basket designer which is why the word "basket" is in the titles:
A Real Basket Case
To Hell in a Handbasket

Got any ideas for title #3? ;-)
