Fiction can be exciting, inventive, and entertaining, but for really incredible and unbelievable tales, you just can’t beat fact. That’s why I write books that are either factual ,or based on real events or real criminal cases. How about these for real life?
-A detective who produced a last minute confession to the Lindbergh kidnapping just days before someone else was scheduled to be executed for the crime.
-Confederate blockade runners living it up in the Bahamas between runs and smuggling luxury goods, including a thoroughbred horse and chamber pots decorated with the picture of a Union general
-A POW escape and manhunt…in Canada
– A French invasion of Mexico during our Civil War, and their installation of an Austrian as the Emperor of that country
-A couple found shot to death in a locked room in New Jersey
-A lighthouse keeper found dead in his lighthouse on the Chesapeake Bay, but the blood on the floor belonged to someone else.
-A shipwrecked Spaniard who became a Mayan war chief in the 1500s.
And a lot more.
There are plenty of strange and fascinating events to write about and that’s what I do. I write about real events because truth really is stranger than fiction.
