1ST CLASS OF 2011 with DETECTIVE DEREK PACIFICO, far right, back


  1. I’ve always thought this was an incredible idea for writers. I’ve done little one hour presentation things but this sounds like some depth to it.

  2. This will be my third time hearing Derek Pacifico and I expect to learn a lot this time as well. He’s a spellbinding talker and storyteller, a real resource for crime fiction writers. Can’t wait, in fact.

  3. If I was deep into crime and mystery writing, I’d be first in line. I attended a course on criminology (UofMd) years ago and investigation was one of lightly covered aspects of it. This would be great.

  4. It’s an interesting thing for fiction writers in many genres: that to make your fiction work well, you must be as realistic as possible. I think this makes crime one of the hardest genres to work in, because the author needs to get their fictional murder investigations as accurately written as possible, so the reader is happy to immerse him/herself in the author’s fiction.
