Dancing on the dark side reveals macabre that some of us a drawn to; as a storyteller, I accept the challenge to waltz across the River Styx to ensure a modicum of truth is shrouded between the pages.
Because fiction must adhere to believability, it is imperative the facts are correct or lose my most valuable asset – you, the reader. The murder kit will show behind the scenes resources in storytelling including psychological reference guides, such as the two acclaimed guides listed below (available from Amazon):
The Method and Madness of Monsters by Peter Vronsky
The A to Z Encyclopedia of Serial Killers by Harold Schechter.
As I go through the murder kit, subpages with references, articles, psychological studies, and tools of the trade will be posted or where to find them.
