We’re absolutely thrilled to have the talented Andrea Kane here at Murder She Writes! Please give her a warm welcome! (Cheers!) ~ Allison
Consulting with the FBI is one of the most fascinating parts of my writing research. I’ve had the opportunity to meet incredible professionals who come to the Bureau from just about every field, experts who seem to know everything about everything, and patient teachers who join me during my multi-layered research process. I’ve been doing this for many years now and through many books, the latest of which is THE STRANGER YOU KNOW (the third installment of my Forensic Instincts series). And I’ll keep right on doing it—learning new departments and their missions, their experiences, their knowledge base—for as long as they give me the honor of doing so.
Sounds daunting? It is. Sounds impressive? It’s that, too. Do I rise to the occasion? I hope so, yes. Am I always the consummate professional… well, most of the time. But there are those times when I say something that makes me want to duct-tape my mouth.
