terrorists



So, who are "domestic terrorists?" Have a clue? Whom do you fear?

Forget the rantings of talk show hosts and self-proclaimed pundits.

Let's ask the FBI.




Of 335 suspected or confirmed acts of terrorism in the United States, almost all were the work of either white supremacists or anti-abortion activists.…

GOOD COP/BAD COP

NAs a true crime writer, I interact a great deal with law enforcement and prosecutors. I only write about criminals who have been convicted, and those whose convictions have been affirmed on appeal. I have met some wonderful police officers, especially those who work Homicide or, as they call it in some cities, Major Crimes Division. Sadly, I have also interacted with dishonest corrupt characters with no regard for the law, let alone law enforcement. It is not easy for a police department to… Continue

ALL IS VANITY?? wELL, NOT ALL..BUT A HELL OF A LOT...

From "Writers Beware," with alterations and additions by me :-)



Vanity Publishers in Sheep's Clothing

I often hear from writers who are confused because they've been offered a contract by a publisher that describes itself as "traditional" or "small press," but wants its authors to make some sort of financial commitment in order to be published. If a publisher wants money from you, STOP!!! Hit your mental remote… Continue

TRUTH IN FICTION/FICTION IN TRUE CRIME

Contemporary authors often find themselves in the uncomfortable position of defending the accuracy of their fiction, while true crime writers of dubious repute (not me)

publish nonsense as if it were well-researched and factual.



I've never met Mark Fuhrman, author of Murder in Spokane, but I wrote a book, Body Count, about the same case. I devoted a full year to intensive research and

interviews, pouring…

FREE BOOKS

"When people find out I'm an author, they ask me for a

free book," whispered Burl Barer bombastically while shaking his

forefinger in the face of fate ominously, yet with typical asymmetric

flairs recently removed from the trunk of his car, "and I tell them,

`WHAT?? If I were a butcher, would you ask me to throw you a bon

appetite?"

Barer, best known for his succinct rambling slimmed down contemporary prose characterized by brevity…

Short Stories

I enjoy writing short stories, although there isn't much market for them. I do have one in the latest online edition of crime and suspense ( www.crimeandsuspense.com). It is entitled THE SHORT STORY. I also enjoy the rather antiquated forms, novellas and novelettes. I have one or the other available for forty-nine cents on Amazon Shorts. The title is The Treasure of Sir Thomas Conway. Believe me, it is worth every penny of that 49 cents!!!

Sequel to HEADLOCK

Several years ago I wrote a well-reviewed PI mystery, HEADLOCK. It was the first in a series. Sadly, the publisher folded and the sequel, MONKEY TRAP, remains incomplete and unpublished. <sigh> A nice publisher is interested in it, provided I make it less "ADD" -- I get a bit carried away with stories with stories and apparently disconnected digressions that do, actually, connect. So, a re-write is in order. Here is a sample of this "work in suspended animation" -- This is unrevised, in… Continue
