Do you want forensics to play a starring role in your fiction, but you find that you’re not quite sure what it’s all about? Forensic Science for Writers reveals the secrets behind forensic science technology. You’ll explore how investigators analyze blood, DNA, fingerprints, hair, documents, ammunition, corpses, and other physical evidence. From the code-breaking tricks of the cyber-sleuth to the traditional procedures of the autopsy room, you’ll investigate the strengths and weaknesses of forensic science. Forensic Science for Writers is not just about science. You’ll learn how to use forensics to create plot twists. And you’ll see how best-selling authors successfully incorporated forensic science in their stories. You’ll also learn common misconceptions about forensic analysis that plague films and novels – the types of errors that you’ll want to avoid in your own writing. This book is based upon an online course that was offered through colleges and other organizations. More than 800 students took the course, including writers, schoolteachers, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys. “As an already successful writer,” one student said, “I am sure I will refer to these lessons over the coming years as I continue to write novels.”
