I love the article linked below. The author could have been writing about my novel – Pay to Play – when she wrote, “It seems to me no accident, either, that contemporary female crime writers. . .draw heavily on true crime in their fiction. They use their novels to explore the media-sanctioned ways women are supposed to behave in the face of crime and what happens when they don’t.”
