Remembrance: The Blindside Book/Movie Deal — New Excerpt Now Online

Thirty-five years ago this week, an overzealous true-crime writer tried to strong-arm me into signing an onerous contract involving a book and movie deal. One of several bloodsucking ghouls trying to capitalize on the tragic deaths of my father and mother.

cover I resisted, but he had me over the proverbial barrel. Previously unbeknownst to me, my brother had signed a contract and my sisters had subsequently been shanghaied into the deal. It didn’t leave me with many options.

Three decades later, another unrepentant true-crime writer, Ann Rule, published an inaccurate account of my parents’ deaths. Another ghoul capitalizing on their violent demise.

I will blog about that a few days hence.

Meanwhile,  you can read the latest excerpt from my book, Dare I Call It Murder? — A Memoir of Violent Loss. The excerpt is about the book and movie deal.

The book is scheduled for release on July 9.
