Deep in the Florida swamps
About Me:
If I run out of books, I will pull out my magnifying glass and read the tiny print on the medicine bottle, the inside of my shoes (who knew they were crafted in Bora Bora?), and all the information on food cans and boxes. I also edit a little, but that's another story....
I Am A:
Reader, Editor
Books And Authors I Like:
Mari Sloan, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Dave Barry, Michael Palmer, any books on needlecrafts (all of them), Any book that can hold my attention is a-one on my list, including every genre' except self-help, which has a tendency to depress me. I already know that if I hit myself in the foot with a hammer, I'll react badly.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
I've given up on TV, and get my news from various sources on the Internet. I love movies and if I want to see good series TV, I can go to Netflix and find anything I want. Right now, I'm up to my earlobes in "House of Cards," a political British BBC wonder.

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.

Hi Margaret,
As a dog lover you might like my series of dog-related mysteries, featuring an ex-NYPD homicide detective who takes early retirement to run a boarding and training kennel in Maine.
His desire to get away from crime fighting changes when he falls in love with a local part-time medical examiner...

Other people have told me that the book disappears. One couple I know got into a serious disagreement about who got to finish it first. It will resurface. It's a fast read.

SEVEN?!!! wow! you must have a lot of space. we do--but not acres. but if we did, I bet I'd have kept them all. I still can't get over your doggie. Yours and mine would play all day I'm sure. By the way, I work in the kitchen and Indy likes to sit either directly in front of my laptop or ON it! seriously! all the best.

I love Wolves too. I also have an aversion to creditors, have plenty of my own so can't help with those. Puccini is great, a real character by the looks of him. Great to hear from you Margaret. I'd suggest 'A Study in Red' if you want one of my books. I'm afradi I've just heard that Rain Publishing are closing, so Galstonbury won't be appearing as planned until I find a new publisher for it,.

Hi Margaret
Your list reminded me that I'd forgotten to put Michael Palmer on mine. And I'm with you on TV. The writers strike convinced me I'm fine without it.
And I'm a compulsive editor too. It sometimes ruins my pleasure in reading.

Hey~! I see you're having fun here! My cat is still bigger than your dog but that is without the noise factor. I've heard your babies over the phone. :-)

Hi Margaret,

Glad you couldn't resist Tilly. She's my 'assistant' and never leaves my side while I'm working. she's a 4 year old crossbreed terrier who's a whiz at Search & Rescue work, Flyball and best of all she's an 'expert' in the Agility Ring. Not bad for a little dog who was abandoned and ledt out to freeze to death before being rescued and coming to live with us eh? All 4 of our dogs are rescue dogs, and all could tell a harrowing tale or two about their previous lives. Your dog looks really cute. What's his/her name? It's good to know you and have you as a friend. Hope you enjoy browsing my page. Maybe one day one of my books might grab you and save you from reading the information on the medecine bottles. (Not good for your eyes, all that small print).

I'll loook forward to hearing from you again, I hope.

Best regards
