The graphic above demonstrates the impetus for the Zoom panel discussion that occurred on Saturday, 12 June. Though the panel does generally answer that question the discussion centered more on crime than the writing of it. In particular the plethora of 'true crime' TV programs and movies that deal with crime and the solving of it, both the fictional and 'true crime' type documentaries or recreations.
Along with my co-panelists: Skip Hollandsworth and DSO Detective Matthew Randal. we had a wide-ranging discussion led and hosted by DPL's Jacob Wise.
