The Killer Queens is a new series of historical fiction books that are based on true stories. I go through several documents and newspaper articles in order to get as many facts as possible. As with any work of fiction, there are some creative additions made to the story, usually within the conversations between the characters involved. I have used mainly newspaper articles or police reports as the basis of these conversations and hopefully made them come alive for the readers to help understand what was meant by those words.

David North-Martino has been a film buff and lover of movies all his life. He spent the summers of his youth and teenage years in darkened movie theaters and taking long walks home with armfuls of rented VHS tapes to escape the world.
