I’ve headed south into Mexico, where today, I’m visiting Clarissa Draper’s excellent blog, Listen to the Voices. Like me, Clarissa is a mystery writer, and her blog is a truly rich resource for crime fiction authors. She shares crime fiction book reviews, information on forensics, ideas for writing and much more. As if that weren’t enough, Clarissa’s novel, The Sholes Key, is available online at no cost. It’s a terrific thriller that I’ve been eagerly following chapter by chapter. One of Clarissa’s features is Reading People, and I am excited and honoured to have been invited to guest post for that feature.
Reading People focuses on people’s verbal and non-verbal ways of communicating, and the way they send messages. It’s a valuable source of information for writers who want to portray their characters accurately. Please pay me a visit at Clarissa’s blog, where I talk about the verbal tricks people in crime fiction use when they are hiding something.
*NOTE: The title of this post is the title of a Billy Joel song. I would have used a line from it, but, um, it’s an instrumental ;-).
