Cathy Scott, a Los Angeles Times bestselling author, investigative veteran journalist and blogger for Psychology Today, has written eleven books. Her work has appeared in New York Times Magazine, Los Angeles Times, Reuters and Las Vegas Sun. Best known for penning The Killing of Tupac Shakur and Murder of a Mafia Daughter, she taught journalism for five years at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Her latest books are The Millionaire’s Wife and Freeway Rick Ross: The Untold Autobiography, which won a best non-fiction award in 2014. Recent TV appearances include Dateline NBC, the Today Show and Vanity Fair’s crime series. She lives in the mountains of San Diego with her three rescued dogs.

I couldn't be happier that MURDER IN BEVERLY HILLS has been named a finalist in ForeWord Reviews' Books of the Year 2013. Just had to share it here. It means more people will learn about screenwriter Susan Berman's unsolved murder in 2000 and the latest investigation findings in her case

It is good to see you here. Thanks for the friend acceptance. It is always fun to see what you and others are reading. I just found this place yesterday, Gregg Olsen recommended it to me.

Gusto Dave Hi Cathyscott! Thanks for approving us as friends.

I’m Gusto Dave Jackson, Publicity Chair for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I didn’t contact book lovers to tout our blog and organization. Chiseled in Rock http://chiseledinrock.blogspot.com features side-splitting satire, cartoons, and some flash fiction for intellectual readers.

This week we’re poking fun at Jonathan Kellerman, spreading it on thick about what authors might do to stay published, and debunking stupid writing rules.

We also plug an occasional book and interview bestselling authors. For writers, we offer tips and agent/editor interviews. RMFW has several bestselling and award winning authors as members such as Mario Acevedo, Joan Johnston, C.J. Box, and Carol Berg. You are invited to follow “The Rock” for contests, entertainment, and an insight to the world of writing! We follow all bloggers who extend the invitation back!
