I Changed The Title of My Debut Thriller

Exploring the Missing Link in Psychopaths

hands-bar

We know that psychopaths lack remorse, empathy, ethics, and a conscience.  They lie with absolute clarity for whatever appeases them and their lifestyle. They are almost like an unscrupulous chameleon showing their mask of normalcy for most of the world to see, but wait for the opportunity to strike out against unsuspecting victims.

Crime seems to be a logical choice for many of these…

What's a Good Read Worth? 99 Cents?

   I'm primarily an author, but I enjoy working in business, too. My husband and I buy closeouts from major U.S. manufacturers and resell them to discount stores. When the dollar stores gained popularity years back, U.S. manufacturers couldn’t compete with the off-brand imitations being sold for a…

Forensics and Criminology: How’d They Do That?

MME078

As we go about our daily routines, there are scientists hard at work trying to discover answers for the criminal justice arena, as well as breakthroughs to improve our way of life.  Many of these tests, studies, and theories aren’t reported in most areas of the mass media.

When I have a moment, I love to peruse the scientific world of forensics and criminal psychology to see what is…

Do You Know the Name of the Most Prolific Serial Killer in British History?

serialkillers

I came upon an article recently about the serial killer who holds the sad record of murdering the most people in Great Britain.  While your thoughts may automatically turn to someone with the likes of Jack the Ripper or perhaps a European version of Ted Bundy, the…

Finished writing DI Andy Horton number ten, now writing the next crime novel

At the weekend I finished writing DI Andy Horton number ten. It's always a scary moment when I press 'send' on the keyboard and a new crime novel wings its way through the ether to my publisher, Severn House. I wonder could I have done better? Should I have rephrased something or added or omitted something? But it's done. Now I wait to see if my publisher likes it. Fingers crossed.

Meanwhile it's on with…

Take a Page From a Crime Scene Investigator’s Diary

The job of a crime scene investigator isn’t glamorous or exotic as it is portrayed on popular television shows or even in the movies.  This daunting task is extremely important and necessary for any criminal police investigation in order to find out who committed the crime and to bring the perpetrator(s) to justice.…

Faith and a Box Full of Clock Parts

Thrilled to see my guest essay on writers keeping the faith despite self-doubt on Psychology Today! Here's an excerpt:

"I’m ten years old. My Big Ben-style alarm clock has stopped working. Maybe I wound it too tightly, maybe it’s just worn out. Whatever the reason, the alarm hasn’t gone off in days.

I know I can fix it, if only I can get a look inside. When I tell my …

Police Follow Snow Tracks to Nab Robbers

Statistics regarding crime consistently bear out the fact that illegal activity is higher during the warmer months of the year.  It could be that the hot temperatures have everyone irritated and on edge, so violence is more likely.  Some blame the fact that…

SerialKillers_2

Thank you to everyone who has visited and subscribed to my blog  – it doesn’t go unappreciated.  When I first decided to create a blog, I was apprehensive at first.  Well let’s get serious, I was terrified.  I thought I’d be writing articles just for myself and no one would care about the posts I wrote, but I was…

DNA under Fingernails Lead to Arrest in Decades-Old Cold Case

DNA_image

Every week seems to bring a new story of how advances in forensic technology are bringing closure to cold cases that had been held in police files without leads for ten years, twenty years, or longer.  The scientific community and law enforcement are working together to bring closure to families who just a few years ago may have thought the ability…

The Perfect System for Writing a Novel by Pauline Rowson

All writers have different ways of working and finding the ‘perfect system’ for planning, researching, plotting, structuring and writing a novel is often a matter of trial and error until something clicks. That’s how it was for me anyway.

Before I struck on my 'perfect system' I tried all sorts of ways of compiling my research, plotlines, and character outlines, from using note books to wall maps, from card indexes to ring binders. None of them worked. The ring binders looked…

We're Writers--We Make Stuff Up

From time to time, people argue about whether writers can evoke something they've never experienced. I have friends in the writing community who take classes in how to shoot a gun, sign up to go rock climbing, and (of course) travel to faraway places in order to write realistically about a subject.

We know, though, that writers must also use their imagination to create scenes and characters they can't actually visit: battles are pretty much out for me, as is being a teen-aged boy…
