Stacey Burns Program

One week from tomorrow, I’ll be in New Hampshire. “Adventures of True Crime Neophyte” will be presented at Willing Workers Hall on Route 109 in Melvin Village on Sunday afternoon. A “meet the author” session will begin at 1:00 p.m. with the new edition of A Favor Returned available as well as my other books. The program will begin at 2:00 p.m. and end by 3:00 p.m.  This time frame includes a question and answer period. The program will address key questions about the process of writing Murder in a Small Town: The Tragic Death of Stacey Burns, including why I undertook the project, what I expect to gain from it, what I learned about writing true crime versus fiction, and the most disturbing issues I have at the present time. It will NOT attempt to find a resolution for the murder of Stacey Burns.

I am hoping that all those who have wondered about my motivation for writing this book or about the unexpected frustrations inherent in writing such a story will attend this program. It should answer some important questions once and for all.

My contacts which I had hoped would allow me to have a fifteen minute tour of the Burns’ house have informed me that they do not have access to the house any longer since it is in foreclosure. Anyone out there have a suggestion as to how to proceed? I really need to verify my descriptions firsthand instead of relying on others, no matter how well they knew the layout of the house.
