“It is my business to know what other people do not know.” (Sherlock Holmes) Tales of crime, detectives, and mysteries often take central stage in our stories. In this Research for Writers Seminar led by a noted police officer, you’ll be able to better understand and write your own characters and plot-lines, whether you are writing crime stories, mysteries, or detective stories, or simply need a better understanding of sleuthing and detective work to make a character or story-line ring true. Topics covered include: police and private detectives, sleuthing and mysteries, witnesses and suspects, and police intelligence and investigations. After a presentation, ample time will be available for questions and answers.
