Diane Fanning is one of America’s premier true crime authors. At the top of a genre that often gets a bad rap in the literary world, Fanning brings esteem, doing due diligence when presenting a criminal case in book format. Her bookMOMMY’S LITTLE GIRL is the definitive account on the life and death of 2 year old, Caylee Anthony. Now that the case is coming to the end, we will discuss her opinion of what happened, and why.
Fanning has been writing a daily wrap up on her blog, Writing is a Crime, on the trial of Casey Anthony, the Florida mother charged with the murder of her daughter, Caylee.
Several of Fanning’s books deal with the issue of intimate partner homicide and violence, including the Edgar award nominated, WRITTEN IN BLOOD, about the death of Kathleen Peterson and the subsequent conviction of her husband, Michael Peterson. Another book, “Gone Forever,” written about the death of a mother of three, leaving her marriage and winding up a murder victim, was praised highly by many who work with domestic violence victims and the aftermath of trauma in the home, recommending the book to victims of violence with whom they come in contact.
Diane Fanning is also the author of the crime mystery series that follows the work of Lt. Lucinda Pierce. The fourth book in the series,TWISTED REASON, has recently been release in paperback.
