As the Magical Mystery Blog tour continues, I’m in Long Island, New York, where I’m visiting Kathleen Ryan’s terrific blog, From Cop to Mom and the Words In Between. Kathleen is a former police officer with 21 years of experience, so she’s got lots of background and wisdom about real crimes. In fact, true crime is an interest of Kathleen’s, so I’m blogging there about true crime and its influence on crime fiction.
Kathleen is also a writer who’s had some of her short fiction published and accepted for publication. She’s also working on a true crime book of her own. Please pay me a visit at Kathleen’s blog!
