Fresh from filming more episodes for Investigation Discovery from her Texas location, true crime author Diane Fanning joins the show to talk about her books, the crimes behind them, and the victims left in the wake. Diane has been featured on several Investigation Discovery shows including Deadly Women, Deadly Sins, Behind the Mansion Walls and Snapped!
Celebrating 2013 as the year of her 2oth book release, Diane Fanning is one of the grande dames of the true crime genre writing from a standpoint of research, facts, and most of all the victim’s voice.
Along with writing true crime and covering high-profile cases, Diane Fanning is also the author of the Lucinda Pierce series of crime novels. The sixth book in the series, Wrong Turn, was released in January 2013 and inspired by Fanning’s experience with the case of Julie Rea, who was serving a 65-year-sentence for the murder of her 10-year-old son, Joel Kirkpatrick.
The latest inFanning’s crime mystery series, Wrong Turn, has Lt. Lucinda Pierce faced with the possibilities of unjustly carrying out her duties at the expense of freedom and additional crimes, or incarcerating the wrong person. Lucinda Pierce faces one of the toughest tests of law enforcement, with her investigation and credibility on the line in the search for truth and justice. Wrong Turn is available at all online and local book retailers.
Diane Fanning’s 20th book, Sleep My Darlings, scheduled for an April 30, 2013 release, puts another notch in the belt of the Edgar Award Finalist author. Sleep My Darlings is the true story of Julie Schenecker who shot and killed her two teen children, 16-year-old Calyx and 13-year-old Beau, in their home in Tampa, Florida. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the trial, scheduled for October 2013, while the defense attorneys are looking to plead insanity.
Speculation about the mental state of Julie Schenecker and what was going on within her family preceding the murder of her two children, has been an area of research by Fanning for her upcoming book, along with sifting through available documents to bring the reader factual information with which to base their opinions. Sleep My Darlings is available for pre-order through Amazon.com and will be available in local bookstores across the nation April 30.
