Here’s Sue to tell us about herself and her passion for true crime stories.
I would say I am an exclusive true crime reader. Very little else interests me.
I am a quiet, 51 year old woman who has been reading true crime since I was probably 12 yrs old.
The book I remember reading in its entirety first was Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliousi and I was absolutely fascinated.
A great author will cover the principle characters, the environment, a little history of the victims/killers, offer a little psychological detail, trial and outcome.
When I read Ann Rule I get transported to the city where the story takes place.
I have a distinct idea of who the victim is as well as the killer but she still manages to throw in a few surprises.
Nothing better than a great book!!!
The author interview will be back next week. Don’t miss it!
