Anne Rule on getting started as a true crime writer

This is a must-read.

In What’s a nice girl like Ann Rule doing in a genre like true crime? Anne Rule says: “Sometimes we ignore obvious signposts right in front of our noses. I never yearned to be an author, even though when I began to read, a whole new world opened up. I carried stacks of library books home in Saginaw, Michigan. Still, as much as I enjoyed reading books, the thought of writing one never appealed to me. Writing hundreds of pages seemed impossible.”

I’m an Anne Rule fan; but won’t read her books late at night, too scary. 🙂
