Profile Information

About Me:
A mother of a three. (Gotta love Photo Shop!) I love to read, write, and if I had more time, I'd paint, too.

I penned a series about San Francisco PD homicide detectives. My new series coming out probably next year is about an FBI forensic artist--of which I still am, forensic artist, that is. Not FBI. My books are based on my experience on the streets as a cop, and seeing as how I've never actually killed anyone with that gun I carried around the last couple decades, I make a lot of the stuff up, especially the murder part.
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
Too many to mention. For mysteries, I like everything from cozies to hardboiled thrillers. I like romance and science fiction-fantasy. I *love* J.R.R. Tolkien, and MM Kaye, especially THE FAR PAVILIONS and SHADOW OF THE MOON.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
My fave cop shows on TV? MONK, PSYCH, L &O SVU. The first two are all about character. I don't care that they're not realistic, and the police procedure is laughable--they are comedies, after all. I turn them on to be entertained. SVU is more on the realistic side. But I like the characters. And this year, I have discovered BBC America. I love, love, love the new ROBINHOOD that just premiered this March. Awesome! And if you're looking for a good period police procedural, check out BBC's LIFE ON MARS, which won the Edgar for Best TV series.

I'm new here. A young lady by the name of Krystal Waters invited me to crimespace. I write poetry, mostly freestyle and what ever comes to min at the moment of where and what ever I'm doing love to write. I don't know what I would if they too the pen and note book away from all of us.

Anyway, making my rounds here and there. Stop by when you can Robin Bercell and all your friends.

Oh, and Robin, one more thing: I just visited your website, and I have to disagree. I don't think Lee Child has the Face of a Killer at all.

Robin, we agree on a great many things. We just haven't figured out what they are yet...
