Sociopath or psychopath, so which is it? We often see these two descriptions interchangeable among mainstream news media and entertainment arenas. When I first began my study in criminology, I was initially confused by the terms and found that many individuals in the teaching area and general information found in college textbooks used each of these terms interchangeably.

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…Continue

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.

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…Continue

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

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

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…Continue
