Crime (and other) Reads

I’m always checking out and reading articles related to crime and/or music, anything that might serve as inspiration material for my books. Here are some of my favorite finds from this month.

  • America’s Most Flamboyant Private Eye – Rolly Waters is pretty cool, but he’s got nothing on this Texas private eye with hooks for hands. I’m not making this up.
  • Poisoning Daddy – Texas again. Star student poisons her dad. What really grabbed me on this one was the effect reading Shakespeare can have on a person.
  • How to Hide from a Drone – Good for writers to know in case their protagonist/villain needs to escape. Probably useful for us regular folks as well. You never know.
  • Beautiful Libraries – None of us get to travel much these days. I enjoyed this little tour of some of the world’s most beautiful libraries.
