My interests range from physics to serial killers, with lots of manic reading in between. But one thing I have always wanted to be is a writer. I'm working on my first crime novel. The other books that were born and failed were mostly speculative fiction.
I write in between being a mom to three of the world's most stubborn children. I now believe in karma.

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.
Karma, eh? Well, my kids are grown and gone. . . and I thought life would get simpler. But then the kids had grand kids, and it starts all over!! Ha! Enjoy life, my dear. If you don't, it gets mighty dull!
Hi Shannon, nice to meet you, too. What sort of first crime novel? I don't know much about physics, but I've always been intrigued by articles and books about the way out aspects of it - at least when they're written so that I can follow them. (I think The Economist usually does a pretty good job of explaining the more bizarre realms of physics to nitwits like me.)
Let me know if you find any of my books in a store. I think they're getting hard to find in stores - although they're still in print and readily available from Amazon and other such places.
