About the Author
Crime and murder expert, creator/producer/writer and former host of DARK MINDS, acclaimed, award-winning investigative journalist M. William Phelps is the New York Times best-selling author of 32 nonfiction books and winner of the Excellence in (Investigative) Journalism Award from the Society of Professional Journalists and the New England Book Festival Award. A respected reporter, Phelps has written for numerous publications-including the Providence Journal, Connecticut Magazine and Hartford Courant. Diversifying his talents, he also consulted on the first season of the hit Showtime cable television series Dexter and is a constant presence on crime film sets. Phelps grew up in East Hartford, Connecticut, and now lives in a reclusive Connecticut farming community just north of Hartford. A highly sought-after pundit, Phelps has made over 200 TV media-related television appearances: Early Show, The Today Show, The View, Fox & Friends, truTV, Discovery Channel, Fox News Channel, GMA, TLC, BIO, History, Oxygen, OWN, and many others. He's appeared on USA Radio Network, Catholic Radio, Mancow, Wall Street Journal Radio, Zac Daniel, Ave Maria Radio, Catholic Channel, EWTN Radio, ABC News Radio, and many more. He is one of the recurring experts frequently appearing on two long-running series Deadly Women and Snapped. Radio America calls Phelps the nation's leading authority on the mind of the... murderer, and TV Rage says, "M. William Phelps dares to tread where few others will: into the mind of a killer." Beyond crime, Phelps has also written several history books, including the acclaimed, New York Times bestseller NATHAN HALE, THE DEVIL'S ROOMING HOUSE, THE DEVIL'S RIGHT HAND, MURDER, NEW ENGLAND, and more. A respected victims' advocate, Phelps steps into the role of grieving victim family member because he's lived it: his sister-in-law, five months pregnant, was strangled to death (her murder remains unsolved).
