As a sworn officer, crime scene investigator and writer, I am in a unique position to help others create scenarios and characters that resonate truth. I have investigated over 200 homicides and completed over 2500 investigations in a city of over 1 million. If you are in the market to publish a true-to-life crime novel, I can help you 'spin' your plot, give your characters a realistic voice used by everyday cops and correct possible missteps with regard to injuries, reconstruction and analysis.
I have vast insight into the minds of investigators, supervisors, the realm of detective work and how it all weaves together. If you are looking to expand your characterization, give your story a little more realism or understand how cops 'talk', I can help you.
I formed this business because during the course of attending endless classes and symposiums, people would ask me to 'look at something' they were writing. Inevitably, I would read words of a lay mind on the outside of the police world, based only upon the crime dramas and other novels they had seen and read. This wasn't for lack of effort, it was a lack of access. Few people have access to the interview room during intense interrogations or to the lab where fingerprints magically appear with the application of a specific chemical. I do, and I can share this insight with you.
The advent of television shows such as "C.S.I." and the "Law and Order" trio have opened the door to crime novelists to create incredible story lines based upon fact. Unfortunately, a lot of "facts" are mishandled and exaggerated. Do you want to write a story that has all the right answers or will you be satisfied with a mediocre tome that lacks realism?
I can help you make your story more marketable by virtue of understanding the entire realm of crime investigations from the inside-out.
