To KILLER ENDINGS…Where both aspiring and published writers, screenwriters, television producers and directors, and motion picture producers and director and theatre production professionals will learn the REAL facts about crime scene investigation, forensic science, and police investigations. This is where murder, arson, poison, suicide, drownings, gunshots, knife wounds, decomposed bodies, murder for hire, fingerprints, serial killers, hangings, kidnapping, assaults, criminal profiling, mass murders, auto-erotic deaths, robbery, crime scene sketching, drug overdoses, ballistics, suicide, auto-erotic deaths, accidental deaths, drownings, shootings, stabbings, poison, blood spatter, homicide, footwear impressions, petechia, lividity, rigor mortis, evidence, skin slippage, robbery, hangings, handwriting analysis, polygraph, bombings, kidnappings, and autopsy are all alive and well . . . even if some characters in your manuscript won’t be for long.
No matter what type of work you write, the need for factual and accurate information about forensic science and police investigations is crucial if you are introducing that aspect into your work. In this age of glamourized “facts” and scripted “reality” police episodes presented on television crime shows, a writer must not fall prey to getting their information from these sources.
Here is where you will learn the real deal. Think about it . . . would you feel comfortable if your doctor told you as he strolled into the operating room that he learned all about brain surgery from watching Grey’s Anatomy? As a police officer and detective for over 32 years, I can tell you police are not trusting souls, and I admit is not easy to obtain factual information about murder and mayhem for your characters.
Try calling your local police department and ask “I’m a writer and thinking about having a wife poison her husband and I need some advice on how she would do that,” chances are you’ll see a police car arrive at your home within minutes to “interview” you. Worse yet, you may encounter a well-intentioned officer with little training or experience in forensic science and crime scene investigation, and be accidentally misinformed. And lastly, you could watch all those crime shows on television and get the “facts” that way.
This website is dedicated to presenting factual and accurate information through my blog, where I will post information about every topic imaginable that you will need to craft your work with a killer ending.
However, since no person knows everything, my blogs will also have guest authors who are experts in their field: medical examiners, crime scene investigators, criminal investigators, defense attorneys, forensic lab scientists, published mystery writers, prosecutors, and many more. I will also review the latest books out there on relevant topics giving you an unbiased opinion of the work. If you are serious about writing accurately, you’ve finally found your happy place.

To your success!
