I spent the weekend at the Columbus (OH) Writer's Conference. Every time I attend one of these things I feel like maybe, just maybe, someday I'll be able to write my way out of a paper bag. The conference was not Mystery specific, but there were several good workshops on the art of writing the crime scene and forensics. The star of the show was Lee Lofland
Lee has got a new book out that is flying off the bookshelves, Police Procedure & Investigation: A Guide for Writers
from Writer's Digest Books.
If you want to learn how to write a realistic crime scene this is the book for you. Congrats Lee, and good luck with the novel!
