Linda Mickey -- Mystery writing
CSI is the most popular television program in the world. Linda Mickey looks at six basic questions that the initial forensic examinations are designed to answer. What forensic tests are routinely run on the evidence? And is what we see on television real? How does this impact the way modern juries reach a verdict? Learn the answers as Linda Mickey takes you inside the crime labs and the work they do. This is an ideal workshop for mystery and crime writers, as well as all who want to include a little murder and mayhem in their writing.
Like her protagonist Kyle Shannon, Linda Mickey was employed by a staffing agency. After more than ten years, in which she saw everything from knife-toting secretaries to drunken production workers, Mickey had plenty of motive to write a mystery series featuring a temporary office worker. She is currently employed as the office manager of a small accounting firm, dividing her time between tax returns and murder. Linda's website is lindamickey.com
