Diane Fanning will be signing copies of her books on Saturday, March 10, including her latest true crime, HER DEADLY WEB at Hastings in New Braunfels, Texas. HER DEADLY WEB is the true account of Raynella Dossett Leath,  murder, and more! It has a cattle stampede, an attempted murder, a three-shot-suicide, medical examiners threatening to shoot law enforcement officials, a secret city and a love child.

The New York Times Diane Fanning is the author of several  true crime books, including MOMMY’S LITTLE GIRL, about the life and death of Caylee Anthony. She is also a crime novelist with five books in …
