I'm a writer, speaker, teacher, and forensic maven who uses my background and training in forensics to to pen crime fiction for film, TV, and novel.

I've hosted webinars on crime writing through Writer’s Digest; and collaborated with The Writers Store and Script Magazine to produce a video on crime writing.
