I'm a journalist and author who has written about crime for decades. I’ve covered everything from the theft of the Aston Martin used in the James Bond film Goldfinger to the Laci Peterson murder and the San Francisco dog mauling case, where two lawyers were convicted of killing their neighbor with vicious dogs they kept for an imprisoned friend.
Some stories take more space and more time to tell than is possible in the daily paper, and books are the perfect way to do that. After writing about other people's true crimes for so long, I decided I wanted to try making up my own. My debut novel, The Branson Beauty, comes out in July 2016.
Here are a few words from people who've kindly read
the book in advance:
- Edgar award-winning author Margaret Maron
