Researching a Suspense Novel
I’ve never worked for the FBI. Never participated in a multi-agency investigation of a series of child abductions that happened over almost two decades. Never interviewed suspects, been threatened by suspects, or been tackled by a suspect. And I’ve never investigated the unsolved disappearance of my own best friend.
But my FBI profiler – Evelyn Baine, the heroine of my Profiler series books – had to do all of these things for the second book in the series, VANISHED. Since I like to write novels with a strong sense of realism, that means I needed to know how to do all these things, too.
