Finding Crime in Vintage Archives


If you're not familiar with my books, you should know my goal is to one day build a time machine and go back and solve all the historical cold cases I can find! Until then, I'm writing about fictional cold cases with ghostly elements and tying to to present day (sans the time machine). My latest release (coming April 9th) Night Falls on Predicament Avenue was inspired by and ripped from a newspaper article I discovered from the late 19th century.


Imagine an old house, with an old recluse who vanishes and leaves behind a gory crime scene. What happened? Where is the victim? IS there a victim, or did they survive?


Hence the premise for Predicament Avenue.


If you're ever "bored" and want to travel down a rabbit hole, do a search for old cold case in history. It's rich with them, and while I don't glory in any past or present pain of crime, I do believe the stories should be remembered.


We know of the popular crimes like Lizzie Borden, but did you know that during WWII the body of a young woman was found stuffed into the hollow of a tree and to this day, no one knows who she is and why she was murdered? That was the cold case that spawned The House on Foster Hill and really launched me into the world of remarkably old cold cases.


They're not hard to find. There are podcasts about them too! Or head to newspapers.com to check out your own search. The archives are rich with vintage mystery of the true crime nature!


And to honor them, I'm giving away a copy of my book The House on Foster Hill! All you have to do is sign up to receive my Book News Newsletter. And if you want to check out my latest upcoming release: Night Falls on Predicament Avenue you can see more about it here AND read the first chapter for FREE!


Be sure to give me a follow at Facebook, Instagram, Threads, and X (Twitter) too!
