Hi Laura! Great to hear from you!!!
Years ago I came across a website with some old newspaper articles about the Kitty Genovese murder case. I was intrigued and decided I'd like to read a book about it, figuring there must be 3 or 4 since the case was so infamous. To my surprise I found there were no books about it, so essentially I ended up writing the book I wanted to read.(less)

The opportunity to share with others a story that's important to me. Writing is, of course, a mode of communication, and a very powerful one. Unlike a conversation, the words linger and last.

“Elizabeth Moseley took the stand. She described her husband as a man who was always quiet and always thinking. She spoke of his meticulous neatness and his extreme shyness. He never undressed in front of her. Asked about their sexual relations, she said, “Well, at first it was normal or what you consider normal. Then later it was more what they describe as cunnilingus.” She said he needed it as a stimulus before intercourse.”
