While at the 2017 Writers’ Police Academy this year in Wisconsin, I was pleased to make the acquaintance of Dr. Katherine Ramsland. I attended a lecture of hers on suicide notes and found her to be a very dynamic and knowledgeable speaker. Then due to some other cancelled courses, I elected to partake of couple more of her offerings — Talking with Serial Killers, and Elements of Murder.
I’d posted on Facebook about attending the academy, and each day shared the titles and/or presenters of some of the lectures. In the way of the small world syndrome it turns out that my cousin Steffan’s wife, Libby, knows Dr. Ramsland. When I mentioned this to Dr. Ramsland at a book signing she smiled at the mention of Libby. Always nice to elicit a smile when mentioning a connection. :0)
