I am the national bestselling author of six critically acclaimed novels and have twice been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction.
On Jan 9th, 2010 my debut novel, SUGAR will celebrate its 10th anniversary and in order to commemorate this milestone I am campaigning to sell 10,000 copies between now and that date.
“Bernice L. McFadden's first novel begins with the brief, poetic description of a crime so startling that the reader is helplessly drawn in, as if a bright red door stood ajar on a bleak and forbidding house. Pearl Taylor's daughter, Jude, has been found murdered and mutilated near a field at the edge of town. "The murder had white man written all over it," writes McFadden. "But no one would say it above a whisper. It was 1940. It was Bigelow, Arkansas. It was a black child. Need any more be said?" In the years that follow, Pearl catches sight of Jude in so many strangers that when Sugar Lacey comes to town and sets up her unwholesome "business" in the house next door, she doesn't know whether to believe what she sees in Sugar's face: a striking similarity to Jude, dead 15 years. In her sedate but supple prose--rising at times to a light, unforced lyricism in the description of landscape or character--the author perfectly renders the closed and protective society of a small Southern town, the superstitions, gossip, and prying.”
I’m asking that you purchase a copy of SUGAR for yourself, a friend or family member. And if you could help spread the word by blogging, twittering ad Face-booking my campaign, it would mean the world to me.

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.
My mom has Alzheimers and anything that you can tell me would help. I understand the disease and have gotten alot of material on it from the organization and doing my own research. Unfortunately, my sister and brother cannot face my mom's problems and refuse to deal with them. I have four home health aides that are gold. They are the most caring and understanding people in this world. I worked hard to get my mom the care at home. It has cost been thousands of dollars. Now, she gets full coverage from Medicaid. I figured that out too. It took time and effort but I did not give up. If there is anything that you can tell me, including any drugs or medications that can stop this dreaded disease other than aricept, namenda and the new patch please let me know. I will check out your sites today. I posted several stories on the writespot and some poems on Poets Mirror about my mom. She is truly a remarkable person. After I finish my third children's book I might even consider putting the poems and stories together in a short book. If anyone out there wants to work on this with me, that would be great. Fran
I admire your work. My Dad passed away last May at 89 and I have to say his mind was still pretty sharp. And his long term memory was wonderful. I really enjoyed the last 3 months I was able to spend taking care of him. God Bless you and your work.
