Research is/was my favorite part of being a true crime writer, and Fatal Beauty was my most difficult project in terms of research and gaining a sense of perspective. As my editor rightly noted “you seem to be drowning in the manuscript.” Her advice was simple and direct. Don’t read reviews as you will only remember the negative ones. Remember you write books for people who like your books and your style, not those who don’t. And finally, remember who you are and what you do. Just write this one with the same self assurance as the previous books. I’m pleased you enjoyed the book. If you liked that one, you will love the others 😋

MURDER IN THE FAMILY

MURDER IN THE FAMILY was my first "serious" true crime book, and my first for Kensington's Pinnacle True Crime series. It was also my first NYT Best Seller, That took everyone by surprise, including Kensington who ran out of books the same week we hit the best-seller list. The thrill of having a best-seller was amplified by the substantial royalty check that arrived just in time for the holidays. Read more of this blog post »
