Criminal homicide is divided by statute: murder in the first degree, murder in the second degree, and manslaughter. The corpus delicti (the objective proof that a crime has been committed) of homicide must include these three elements: an evidentiary showing the death of a human being, showing of a criminal agency (perpetrator), and that the criminal agency was the…Continue

-What made you decide to do this?
Well way back in 1997 I was a double in a movie called I know what you did last summer. The photographer of the movie approached me and asked if he could take a few photos of me. I realized then that I was photogenic. The photographer kept complimenting me and I figured if a professional like this was saying something good , then I knew I must be something. That's where it all began.

Two minutes. Waiting.
My heart is ready to burst.
The lanes are naked, clean,
ready to be torn up by cleats
Hundreds of eyes blinking and
Chatter swarmed into a calm
storm underneath this dome.
Waiting is the hardest part.
The anticipation, building.
Struggling to breathe as I
Ease up here.
Go for the…Continue

We’ve all seen an episode of our favorite television crime drama during which the accused criminal becomes frustrated with his attorney and decides to represent himself in court. Perhaps to add to the theatrics of the small screen, sometimes the villain reveals a surprising grasp of the law and courtroom procedures. However, the reality is that choosing to act as…Continue

Trestle Press green-lit this cover this morning. It's for the first standalone in the Maynard Soloman short story series (the crusty ol' bastard's first appearance being in "Who Whacked the Blogger?")
This one is called, "Maynard Soloman Solves The War on Drugs." It's a lofty claim, but the cantankerous codger wouldn't say it if it weren't sort of true.
Hey, bear with me on this; it is my first Author’s Spotlight. I am trying to add to the posting week with some interesting new content and I came up with this. I have read a digital short story by S.R. Edvalson called “Anne’s Unknown Guardian”.

My academic background has helped me to explore and understand some of the complicated aspects of the criminal justice system when addressing crime, criminals, profiling, and crime scene investigation. This is one of main reasons that I chose this field because of its diversity and challenges. I find this field fascinating and thought-provoking on so many…Continue

Oh man, Crimespace, it's been moving so quick on my end. Ever since I signed up with Trestle Press, I've been keeping busy with writing, promoting, networking and everything else (not bad things at all). It's time to stop and assess the situation.
Careful, you might turn into a pillar of salt.
I find I've carved out four distinct styles of writing. My various writing projects fall into one of these categories, published and…Continue
While growing up, I loved to read mysteries with great detective characters that solved the most difficult murders – and still do. It didn’t take me long to find some of the Sherlock Holmes novels after I read the Nancy Drew mystery series, and books by Agatha Christie and Ellery Queen just to name a few. The adventures of Sherlock Holmes just seemed like the next…Continue

Hey there and happy Monday to all. I wanted to start the week off with a bang and make some noise early in the week so I am going to post on not one but two of my collaborators. I have been fortunate to work with Vincent Zandri on “Down Low-Dead” ( available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Scribd.com) and B.R. Stateham on “Hotel Beaumont” which will be released in a few weeks. The reason I bring that up is that I have the unique distinction of not only jazzing with these…Continue
