About This Course

Crime can pay! At least it does when you can write a good detective, mystery or crime story. Have you witnessed in recent years the overwhelming number of television shows, motion pictures and novels dealing in crime and the number of hungry fans devouring these stories the moment they are produced? This fast growing industry is both intriguing and rewarding for the author.

Throughout the course you will learn how to research police reports, forensic techniques, crime scenes and you will learn to think like a criminal. This course aims to take you from the spark of an idea through to being a published writer.
