“Lethal Intent” makes “Business Insider” List for Those With Withdrawal from Podcast Phenom “Serial”

I’d heard of “Serial”, the podcast series centered on a reporter’s journey covering a real life crime investigation, and was just gearing up to watch it when I had a nice surprise. Very jazzed that Business Insider’s Emmie Martin named “Lethal Intent”, my Aileen Wuornos biography, to her “11 True Crime Books You Should Read If You’re Obsessed With ‘Serial'”. Surrounded by some of my most admired books and authors, no less. Forgive the drooling but now and again, it’s permissible, right? What a kick! Here’s the list: http://tinyurl.com/lalc8bj

“The Illustrated Courtroom” Named to Kirkus Reviews’ “Best Books of 2014”

best_of_2014_kirkus-image+textMarthaStewartHot on the heels of the excitement about being named as one of the Times Literary Supplements’ “Books of the Year 2014” comes this nod from Kirkus Reviews, known to all authors. My co-author, courtroom artist Elizabeth Williams, and I are very jazzed about both. “The Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art”, which spans trials from Jack Ruby’s and the New York Black Panthers’ to Bernard Madoff and Michael Jackson’s, is available at a special price of $30. Great gift idea, if we do say so ourselves! (Above, Elizabeth Williams’ portrait of Martha Stewart during her trial. Elizabeth spent hours – no, make that days – waiting for Martha to turn her head enough to grab this image, created at warp speed.)
